Have you ever wondered what your fellow toy enthusiasts were up to? I know I do all the time. I’m the nosy type. So when I heard my friend Dr. Rampageo over at Doomkick was cooking something I got a little worried. I was a little concerned he might have been following the path of Walter White and spending his time in the kitchen cooking up meth. Luckily this was not the case. Even though he dresses like Walter White, Dr. Rampageo was creating his own line of toys based off his own creation, “The Exciting World of Jalldoon.”
The good doctor has sent over a few early samples for us to take a look at. His first “drop” will consist of a variety of Slimes in all flavors and varieties. Not only this but the guys over at Rampageo Industries are so excited about their first official sale they will be picking random winners to receive special one-off colored slimes. These will be extremely limited, so make sure to get your purchases in early.
So shall we take a closer look into these slimes? I think we shall.
The first thing you will notice when you get your slimes is that they use a very sturdy and durable plastic. These guys are built to last. Do you want to run them over with your car? You can do it. Do you want to drop them from the top of the Empire State Building? Someone will probably get hurt, but yeah you can do that too. The great plastic coupled with the variety of colors make these guys not only great characters, but also great diorama pieces to add some flavor to something like an alien world. I got myself a beautiful set of green slimes and I love how they work with my NECA Prometheus figures. The Deacon is just so happy to have a baby slime to carry around and nurture like its own child.
Master Boshak (not to be confused with the Boshek from Star Wars) the slime with the gas mask, is one of my favorite characters of the bunch. The mask gives him a Super Mario Brothers 2 feel, very similar to the Shy-guy. In fact I challenge Dr. Rampageo to make more masks for his slimes. A Shy-guy mask would be cool, as well as a big smiley face. A big yellow smiley face over a green slime would be the coolest thing ever.
I’d like to direct your attention over to Prince Algor; this guy over here:
Not only can you buy Prince Algor in his regular form, but you can upgrade him to his heroic form! The heroic form gives the prince a fully articulated body held together by magnets. If you have ever seen the Warlords of Wor you would find Algor to be completely compatible. Nope? Haven’t heard of Warlords of Wor? Well have you heard of Masters of the Universe? It was a little toy line back in the 80’s, it was pretty great. Well you could consider Prince Algor a spiritual successor to Masters of the Universe. That’s the kind of style he exudes: pure class.
I love to support my fellow toy collectors, especially the ones who are making their own product. There is something very ambitious and just flat-out cool about it. I’ve been following Dr. Rampageo’s progress on his quest to make these and the sheer amount he has learned and been able to execute in such little time is amazing. I’m impressed by his slimes, but once he sent me pictures of the heroic versions I was blown away. Expect big things from these guys, and don’t forget to check out Doomkick and Rampageo Industries’ Facebook page for the latest news.
