Custom M.A.D. Wrestlers Figures Put Madball Heads On M.U.S.C.L.E. Bodies

Madballs is one of those '80s franchises like Garbage Pail Kids that immediately takes me back to the era of gross-out humor. Earlier this year, I found out Madballs which was originally created by American Greetings was making a comeback in comic book form thanks to Lion Forge Comics.

And now thanks to a recent post by Plastic and Plush, I've also learned of a glorious mashup that will gives bodies to those disgusting heads in the form of M.U.S.C.L.E. figures! Monster Island's Paul Bas has designed 6 figures that come in flesh tone and neon green colors.

Each set comes in hand-cut card backs with the Madballs vs. M.U.S.C.L.E.-themed artwork and made from UV resistant rubber. Both sets are available now to purchase for $55, the flesh tone set from Man-E-Toys and neon green set from Monster Island.

It's a steep price to pay for all that '80s glory, but these are truly unique and will be the showcase of any figure collection.
