John Santagada & Radioactive Uppercut are moving right along with their debut vinyl toy line! Last week John released a teaser of the project's first figure, 8-Ball! 8-Ball will be the first release from the Radioactive Rumblers series. The ongoing series will feature 4" rotocast vinyl toys with "city crushing" points of articulation (3 points in 8-Ball's case). John drew inspiration for the project by revisiting old sci-fi and horror movies, 80s toys, Garbage Pail Kids & comic books dating back to the 50s & 60s. I don't know about you, but it all sounds cool to me! John will be funding the project through Kickstarter with a tentative "live date" set for July 1st. Tiers for basic pledges include trading cards, comics & the standard 8-Ball figure but to sweeten the pot a number of custom 8-Balls have been donated for the Radioactive Rumblers cause! Artists Ed Long & Damien Glonek of Living Dead Dolls, Frank & Martina Russo of MF Gallery & Monsterforge have all been confirmed as 8-Ball customizers with more to come! Make sure you visit & "like" Radioactive Uppercut's Facebook page to get the latest developments & details as they come!
