    Greasebat and Friends Rice Grain...
    [​IMG]

    "Introducing the Greasebat Gummi "Rice Grain" edition, and no, "Rice Grain" does not imply the colorway, it implies that these figures are the size of rice grain... literally!"

    Im not sure if it is a planned release or not, but it sounds like it should be part of a balanced meal

    Thanks! These were a surprise from Unbox, not available yet... here's photo from the person making them, I guess they're pretty labor intensive

    On a side note, people are selling the gummi playsets on ebay for 2 to 3 times the retail cost, they are still available via Unbox at regular cost.

    I love the little ring. Such a great execution of micro monster carnage. What a brilliant idea! :D Unbox really does not disappoint.

    Most of my favorite toys as a kid were things like vending machine fodder. From tiny bootleg madballs to bootleg kamen rider and m.u.s.c.l.e figures and tiny cap guns with a little plastic circle of exploding caps and even the small multi-part robots you could get from the all powerful quarter machine when most stuff was still a dime. The greasebat gummi figures and this ring remind me so much of all that stuff. It just great me to see some people care enough to recreate some of that nostalgia.

    Exactly! That was what I was thinking for some reason that ring remind me old times as kid and vending machines. I remember a little convenience store (Tiendita, as we use to call those stores before the 7eleven like stores) this old man had a cardboard with bubble gums on it all numbered, you bought one or as many you like and they had a number on the back, that number give you a prize, it was a pretty cheap raffle thing. The best things you can win could go, from a Soda, a Twinkie, rings of all sorts, candys. Or what I was aiming for: or m.u.s.c.l.e figures, and luchadores . Nostalgia indeed
