The Xenoplasm group show at Outre Gallery…

We’ve already unveiled our very own Tru:Tek‘s entries for the upcoming Xenoplasm group show, but with the Melborne-based Outre Gallery opening its doors in just a few days time, we thought we’d give you guys a few more details about how things are going to go down… Focussing on the fusion of cultures in the present indie toy scene, a collection of over 20 artists have been called upon to blend traditional Japanese toy design and production with Western influences including pop, horror and sci-fi, resulting in a selection of some of the best one-offs and micro-runs the scene currently has to offer. Opening at Outre this Friday, July 8th at 6pm, those interested in finding out about previews, on-the-night sales and after sales can check out the gallery’s dedicated Xenoplasm page right here

Tru:Tek’s Slimerballs and Norris Oozecrab for the Xenoplasm group show…

With the highly anticipated Xenoplasm group show touching down at Melbourne’s Outre Gallery in just a couple of weeks time, our very own Tru:Tek exclusively reveals the 2 entries he’ll have up for grabs! First off, we have the Slimerball micro-run. A mash-up of the Oozeball and STKL Toys‘ Uneasy Joe (in particular, his arms!), this limited edition of just 3 balls have been treated to various slime-green, purple and pink sprays to resemble everyone’s favourite little spud Slimer, coming complete with yellow-sprayed glass eyes to match the original 80’s Kenner toy…

Next, we have the Norris Oozecrab one-off. Once again featuring a number of arms from STKL’s Uneasy Joe (5 this time!), the custom, based on the fateful Norris from cult horror flick The Thing, has been treated to layers of fleshy sprays, blood splatters, a blood shot glass eye stalk and a gruesome hi-gloss finish. On display alongside a whole host of other one-offs and painted runs at the event on July 8th, interested parties can get a preview of what will be on offer by checking out the event’s dedicated Instagram feed right here
