It's not that I don't think the figures are cool. I'm pretty sure if so inclined I could find a place for them in my collection, but when I think Madballs, I think of that old cartoon pilot where they were all LITERALLY just monstrous balls (ahem) from the planet Orb, a world of living . . . balls with arms and legs, not unlike MODOK. With bodies, they're just another freaky looking monster.

 

Yup that was a pretty bad cartoon show (or should I say..1 episode that got canned), and the animation was really nothing as cool as the Balls themselves , and yes it was MODOK'ish

Interesting licenses they chose there, I'm only kinda familiar with Earthworm Jim, not so much with other licences, but boy that is one unusual madball articulated figure of Oculus, very odd indeed.

I'm ready!

I don't even have space for these , it's going to have to be a new step up

This is going to be me as soon as I get these

Madballs as a kid was my favorite thing, still is, I had almost all of the original action figures, but when I was a dumb teen looking for weed and booze money, I sold them all to make a quick buck..... now they are next to impossible to find complete, or for any good price, for years I looked

But I'm very curious about the fact they show 4 silhouettes, and there is only 3 figures shown... wonder whats happening with that

Never saw those before. Do they have a cartoon in the 80s?

After seeing these I cant wait for Earthworm Jim. I loved that game. It has been one of my grails for an articulated legends' style figure.

Oh rad that's the helmet eyepatch dude with the beard , damn I wish it was really almost any body but him, Skull Face and Slobulus would have been my picks over him,, but I mean I'm hopping they are going to do the entire collection , but it seems they are doing things the original collection didn't because there never was Splitting Headache in action figure form

I was really hoping for a Skull Face. Hes always been my favorite since I was a kid. I had his head popping toy when I was younger and I was on my dads boat and it popped out into the Ohio River where I never was able to recover it. Ever since I ve just been fond of that character. When the rebooted the balls back in like 2005, I quickly snagged up a skull face. I look forward to seeing if they do him in this really awesome style! insta buy!

I like the Madballs guys and do want them but I'm trying to limit my figure purchases since there's so much coming out during the rest of the year that I know I'm going to get. I'm going to hold off for Earthworm Jim & Clay Fighters. For those Megalopolis can have my money.

Im hoping their battletoads they make arent based on the new game coming out and more on the originals from nintendo era. Or at the very least have the classic looks as well!

I would bet they are based off of the original games, and not the new one , judging from the road they seem to be going down with these, it seems very retro , but one never knows.. if they were based off a new look I could say my wallet was Safe!

I am clutching my Credit card with anticipation for tomorrow ready to hit Pre-order on these Madball figs... I must secure them!

Yeah I'm definitely really super happy with the fact that I would say I was like the 1st person to pre-order these, maybe if anything like the 5th person, since I had the web page up all day watching the count down, and as soon as it hit Zero, blammo I order the figures.. because the first 1000 people get a Signed James Groman print!  which is so damn awesome !!! and one of the reasons I was running to be first , now I just gotta wait until spring 2021 to get these bad boys on my shelf

Ah these are just so cool, I really like the Modular construct, I think it will be so cool once we get more waves to see the crazy kitbashes we can do

I'm really curious though does any one have any information on how well these are doing for Megalopolis? it seems to be all crickets on the fan front about these from what I've seen and that worries me, I'm going to be a sad guy if this turns out to be the only wave we get.

I had them in my cart but the shipping stopped me.  Total is 139 and they offer free shipping on orders of 150 or more....  Shipping was over $20

It looks like they are not meeting their quota by keeping the order open for longer and offering their competitor BBTS to sell them as well.  Maybe they will be able to sell a few of these after the fact if they have to make a certain number to keep costs down.   

I think if they offered free shipping to everyone that preordered the entire wave they would have sold a lot more.

I must say that this idea also happened in my mind when this morning I realized that BBTS also had them in pre-order. In short, I don't see these figures having a broad market.

Here Comes Earthworm Jim You Know

(whistling)

Despite His Great Big Muscles
And His Really Big Ray Gun,
Jim Is Still An Earthworm
But Then He's The Only One,

With A Super Suit To Make Him Really Super Strong,
Jim Can Be A Winner If We Only Sing Along...
(Alright)

Earthworm Jim,

Earthworm Jim,
A Hero For All Time
