These really should’ve been a thing when I was a kid.
Straight out of the 1980s (and my own childhood), the Madballs line of squishy monster balls (get your head outta the gutter!) returned to toy shelves earlier this year, which made me feel all warm and nostalgic inside. One of the companies behind the multi-company revival is Kidrobot, who soon delivers on a promise they made a while back…
HORROR. ICON. MADBALLS!!!
Yes, Kidrobot is in the process of whipping up a line of gross-out toys that reimagine our favorite horror villains as Madballs characters, with six icons being made as part of their first (and hopefully not last!) Horror & Sci-fi Series. The 4″ series of foam balls includes a Xenomorph and Face Hugger from the Alien franchise, along with Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhees, Leatherface and Predator.
They’re set for release in January 2018.
