Remember Madballs? No, we didn’t spend the weekend binge-watching I Love the ’80s. But we are exclusively revealing that geek-friendly collectibles company Mondo is putting its own spin on the deliberately disgusting, advertised-on-TV toys with what the company is calling MondoBalls.
The first three characters depicted on MondoBalls will be Skull Face, Horn Head, and Slobus, all three of which will be familiar to Madballs aficionados. That initial trio of MondoBalls will be available to pre-order soon via Mondo’s official site. The company has also struck a licensing deal with Marvel, the initial fruit of which will be a MondoBall featuring the character, Venom.
“This line is one of the most fun projects I’ve ever had a chance to work on!” Mondo’s creative director of toys/collectibles Brock Otterbacher said in a statement. “We’re super excited to launch these gross little guys.”
Mondo also has plans to release MondoBalls featuring characters from the Gremlins and Friday the 13th franchises.
