|"Looks like the little bugger brought some friends with him this time, Hoardax."|
This is a very special occasion. This is officially Hoard World's first spotlight on a designer toy line!
What are they?
That's a great question and I'm glad you asked.
These are from a new, completely original toy line called The Exciting World Of Jalldoon.
They were created by RAMPAGEO INDUSTRIES which is an offshoot of toy site DoomKick. If you are familiar with Hoard World on Facey B then you've probably seen them pop up on there from time to time when I share their photos or mention them! You may already be a fan of them yourself. If you're not, go check their site out and tell 'em Hoardax sent ya! (That's me, silly).
DoomKick have been reviewing, living and breathing toys for so long that they decided they wanted to make their very own! And this is the result.
"You'll never guess what just happened to me."
But these Slimes are not your run-of-the-mill ectoplasm. In fact, they're not ectoplasm at all.
They all have names!
Just like Soylent Green, these Slimes is people too!
Alright, so you've probably already seen Soylent Green or had it ruined for you via a tired comedy catchphrase. I might've jumped the gun there with the spoiler alert.
But I'm telling ya muchacho! The Slimes have names!
Prince Algor and Toron are the heroes. Master Bolshak and Jelgon are the villains.
It's the classic tale of Good V.S. Evil.
Jelgon actually reminds me a lot of The Tentacle from the classic game Maniac Mansion or even Day Of The Tentacle.
However, The Slimes are no one trick ponies. The ones I got were green for a variety of reasons (including this) but they come in all sorts of colours, shapes and sizes. Even glow in the dark!! And there are slime mini's as well! (The mini is the incredibly cute and tiny slime sitting on Venkman's chest in the last Ghostbuster pic - you can name that one yourself!)
And here's the kicker. Prince Algor also has a Warrior Form. An awesome REMCO-style body with magnetic articulation just like BOG-NAR from The Warlords Of Wor which means you can make all kinds of mash-ups if you have both (or multiple Prince Algor warriors) Get outta town!
More pics displaying the many facets, options and styles of The Slimes plus character bios and a history of the world of Jalldoon are available right HERE.
All you really need to know is that these suckers will be available to buy directly from DoomKick's STORE on Saturday April 20th at 9pm USA Eastern Time.
So, if your interest has been piqued, you should take a look at those last two links, explore The Exciting World Of Jalldoon further and sit watching the clock until the equivalent of 9pm April 20th in the USA arrives in your timezone.
Heck, that's what I'd do.
Once I had my own set of The Slimes in my greedy little hands - then I'd probably do something like this....
But it wouldn't end there, Hoard Worlders.
Oh no. No it wouldn't. Not by a long shot.
What you are about to see is what happens when Hoard World got SLIMED.
These are serving suggestions only.
Do not try this at home.
I'm an untrained amateur....er.....trained professional.
"Enough with the Kryptonite already!"
"Oh cool. Gamma Pez."
"In Brightest Day, In Blackest Night....blah blah blah."
"Hulk did what?"
"Excuse me sir, do you have any Green Poupon?"
To all you Hoard Worlders and DoomKickers
Let's get slimey!
