CLUB MORDLE is now open at Toyfinity.com!
Head on over there and you’ll have the chance to join Club Mordle, which guarantees you the chance to order any upcoming Mordles product. Remember, you don’t have to join Club Mordle to purchase product – but product available on release days to the general public will be available in limited quantities. You can see the full details in a previous post on this blog.
Today, I’m happy to finally give you some details about the very first product releases that Club Mordle members will have access to!
Mordles love to arrive in groupings called waves. The first wave will consist of SIX colorways, released over the next three months (one release in June, one in July, and one in August).
The first two products, available to Club Mordle members starting on Monday June 17th through Sunday June 23rd (and release to the general public on June 28th) include:
Mordles – Standard Edition TEN PACK with special bonus item! The price for this pack will be $16.
Mordles – Crawler Edition TEN PACK. The price for this pack will be $12.
Product photos will follow this week.
The countdown to the return of the Mordles is on!
Now you may be wondering: what the hell are Mordles?
Back in the 1980s, the Ideal toy company (whose other creations include Robo Force and Manglors) had a toy line called Rocks & Bugs & Things. The main focus of the line were the first two creatures, both of whom snacked on the Mordles, the titular “things.”
The rocks and bugs actually had moving parts (the rocks opened to reveal monsters, while the bugs were, well, just bugs), but both lived to eat the “nasty Mordles.” It’s unclear what exactly Mordles did to deserve their role as snacks.
But in the end, the Mordles had the last laugh, as collectors remember the Mordles far more fondly than the Rocks or Bugs.
And so, John Kent and his partners Charlie Parry and Mike Hart of ToyFinity have brought Mordles back into the world. This dovetails nicely with the growing minifigure segment of the indie collector market, with the added bonus of some existing cultural cachet.
