It was a little close to the wire, but we can now confirm that the debut sofubi from Tru:Tek’s Gory Hole imprint — “Warui Zonbi” — will be making its first appearance at Designer Con ‘15 next weekend! Inspired by MaBa’s ‘80s toy line “Zombies” (ゾンビーズ), as well as cult horror flicks from the ‘80s and ‘90s, the first round of finger puppet-style figures feature two designs: “SS Wolfgang”, taken from the classic nazi dream sequence in An American Werewolf in London, and “Selwyn”, the zombie baby seen in Peter Jackson’s early b-movie classic Dead Alive (aka Braindead).
Designed by Tru:Tek with control art from fellow horror toy aficionado John Santagada of Radioactive Uppercut, the pair were both sculpted by the legendary Makino-san of TTToy, coming in scale with the original Zombies at 3-inches tall, and featuring a similar split torso, capped bottom design. Debuting in super-limited quantities in an unpainted yellow vinyl via Tru:Tek at Skinner’s DCon booth #1229 from Saturday, November 21st, pricing for the set is still to be confirmed… Look out for an interview with Tru:Tek on the series in issue #32 of Clutter Magazine for some more in-depth info on both the fascist furball and the infant from Hell!
