Briefly mentioned early last month, our editor-in-chief Tru:Tek will be resurrecting Gory Hole in time for a relaunch at DCon in November, bringing along a whole host of goodies including the debut of the brand’s first ever toy line… Warui Zonbi! Heavily inspired by cult horror toys the Ma-Ba Zombies – albeit with a modern twist – the series is set to feature a whole slew of soft vinyl finger puppets inspired not by the silverscreen’s classic monsters, but instead the more obscure cult horror creatures that we ourselves grew up with throughout the 80’s and 90’s. Having already revealed the first figure to make up the 2-part Series 1 – the SS Werewolf – we’re glad to finally be able to reveal his companion today… the hideous Zombie Baby! Heavily inspired by Peter Jackson’s cult horror flick Dead Alive – primarily the disturbing zombie “birthing” scene, the little guy has been re-imagined by Tru:Tek and John Santagada to closely resemble the “split torso” Ma-Ba aesthetic, coming sculpted in-scale by the legendary Makino-san of TTToy at around 2.5″ tall. Due to be produced in sofubi alongside the SS Werewolf in time for DCon, be sure to stay tuned for the full lowdown – including Tru:Tek’s HUGE plans for future releases – soon…
