Hey guys – I wanted to share a personal project I’ve been working on over the summer. I’ve wanted to do a custom sculpted Madball-style project for a while, and recently while watching one of my favorite horror movies I finally got the design and inspiration translated into 3D form. I wanted to make something with that over-the-top Madballs style, but also something I knew would probably never actually get produced.
In the future, I plan to cast these with squishy foam just like the originals, so stay tuned for future release info!
From Plastic Geek Toys comes the Badballz “Fuzzball” first being released as a Gray Resin Prototype.
- Limited edition unpainted, solid gray resin prototype. Limited to 10 produced in this style.
- Stylized creature ball inspired by the 80’s horror flick. A hefty 3.5″ diameter solid resin cast ball. Hand sculpted & cast. Stands on its own. Fits in great with other 3″ scale Madballs. Comes packaged in a box with header card.
- Preorder ships in January/February 2015.

It seems like everyone is trying to make “retro” style figures these days, particularly on Kickstarter, but this one seems like something special. Warpo Toys has gone all out and hired artists and sculptors from the 70s-80s toy industry, and gone as far as to make a retro style commercial, catalog and packaging/artwork.
The Legends of Cthulhu Retro Action Figure Toy Line Kickstarter project launched yesterday and has a $60K funding target to reach by June 9. They’re off to a good start, currently over halfway there in just a day. Give it a look!
