    Mondo/madballs!!!

    Well now that Mondo is branching out into doing toys, it looks like they've decided to tackle Madballs! I'm super stoked about it, loved 'em when I was a kid. They rank right up there with Garbage Pail Kids from that short 80's era of toys that were gross, obnoxious, and cool. I hope they make them all, if there affordable ( I heard $10 to $15) then I'll be buying them all.

    So the other company that was doing them a few years back lost the license? That's too bad, but to be fair, these look even better done than those were. I'll be getting them for sure.

    I can't find the article but I'm pretty sure I read that these will be made from vinyl, which you can get more detail from. More of a collectible then a toy you'd play with I guess.

    So these are just the heads? Not the full figures where the heads would shoot off? I still have a few of mine and the vehicle. Loved those things.

    Man I wish these were the full figures, I had them all. In fact I still have them and the vehicle /motorcycle somewhere too! Also have the 2 vhs episodes of the cartoon. But yeah I think their just doing the actual balls. Maybe they'll eventually do the full figures too. Or if not them maybe Funko, the mini Garbage Pail Kids vinyls they just did look fantastic.

    Regardless, I'm really looking forward to these

    These look great, but yeah-- I'd be much more excited if they were the full figures. I once had the opportunity the buy the whole set at a toy store in the early 00's-- I only bought one and I've been kicking myself ever since.

    I didn't even know there were full figures ... not to mention vehicles! Did these just never make it to Australia?

    I can only ever remember seeing them like this:

    The Mondo ones look beautiful. I bet they’re going to be pricey, though.

    Don't think they're going to be too pricey, atleast I hope not. Found the article that mentions what they're made from and possible price:
    http://www.strangekidsclub.com/2015/...ys-from-mondo/

    If they end up only being $10 to $15, and they're not super limited or really hard to get, then I'm in for all of 'em! (Hope they plan on doing more then just the 3 pictured, Screamin' Meemie is a must!)
    And hopefully they end up doing the full figures too (although I'm probably just dreaming ).

    Those were the last set that I had as well. I really, really liked the job that company did. These new ones are definitely even better made, though.

    Oh yeah, completely forgot Madballs had figures of themselves.

    Loved Madballs as a kid. I have six of the nine. Missing Screamin Meemie, Slobulos, and Horn Head.

    I remember picking up the first Madball comic before ever owning any of the actual toys.

    I'll buy all of these new ones in a heartbeat.

    I only had one as a kid. Cracked Brain. Lost him on the roof. From what I remember the original toys were a foam material, so if you
    played with them, they ultimately got chipped up, and ended up getting thrown out.

    I'd imagine as was said, these will be more MOC pin on the wall stuff, and if you do open them they'll probably be even flimsier for anyone
    thinking about playing catch with them.

    I only had some collectible stickers as a kid, but wnated to get the full figures and lately thought of pursuing them to collect. Unfortunately, they are very expensive right now, around $100 each and not all of them are easy to get.
    Luckily, if they are going to be classiczed through Mondo with full figure I may try to get them.

    I love Madballs and do want these but I want to know prices first, I'm still sad I couldn't afford their First Turtle figure.

    Really cool to see Madballs getting some mad love. I'm stoked for these, but agree with the general sentiment, I hope they're not ridiculously overpriced.

    Anybody remeber the cartoons? Only 2 episodes and really 2 different styles. Wish there would have been more episodes of either. Also wish these 2 episodes would get a dvd release

    Blast from the past!

    Excellent choices Jon! But how could you pass on Screamin Meemie!?!? Aargh and Slobulus are also 2 of my favorites. Actually I love'em all!

    Had to pick and choose! LOL. I would have loved the whole set but too rich for my blood. Need to save money for the actual balls!

    I've heard from multiple people the $10-$15 range so I REALLY hope that holds up and they are better priced than other Mondo offerings.
