Get ready to meet your oh-so-ugly Madballs in The Sandbox metaverse
Madballs™, an iconic '80s toy line known for its gross-out pop culture, has partnered with The Sandbox (TSB) to launch new playable avatars and virtual experiences.
First appeared in 1986, Madballs is a series of toy foam balls initially created by AmToy, a subsidiary company of Cloudco Entertainment. The balls incorporated gross-out humor, with each given a character synopsis and odd names, such as Screamin' Meemie or Slobulus.
According to The Sandbox, each Avatar will be based on the original Madballs characters with never-before-seen designs from the '80s franchise. These playable Avatars will have ghastly faces, grotesque names, and disruptively funny attitudes. Built with unique, randomly generated traits, each Madball boasts over 20 hand-crafted animations, offering a first-of-its-kind experience in The Sandbox metaverse.
"We've teamed up with Madballs to bring you a unique collection of 2023 playable voxel Avatars with 20+ hand-crafted character animations! Plus a vast range of disgusting, collectible characters to choose from, each Avatar brings its own unique bounce to the metaverse!" wrote The Sandbox.
The mint is expected to happen on March 7th. Players can join the allowlist here:
As part of the collaboration, Madballs™ will launch various in-game challenges incorporating the brand's subversive humor and gross-out elements on their newly acquired LAND. Each of these avatars will provide unique perks and benefits, such as access to a special reward pool during their multiplayer event. Speaking of which, the first Madball experience in TSB is set to launch on March 21st.
In addition, holders will be eligible for NFT giveaways from time to time. For the first airdrop, all qualified holders will receive a wacky Madballs Madness to pair with their virtual Madball Avatars. If you haven't seen it, make sure to check out the Madballs invasion below:
