I remember having a weird toy that was like a rotting head. It came with various gross-out paraphernalia, like "worms" and this sticky clay-like goo which I balled a Episode VI Luke Skywalker up in. Why? Who knows!

I don't remember the toy's name, but it probably was not related to these things.

That was Monster Face:



I'm pretty sure this was a Christmas present (I def remember watching the commercial and then asking for it), and yeah, that red clay was all over our Star Wars figures long after the Face itself was gone.

Same here. I usually dislike toys that are designed to be gross, but I never thought of Madballs that way. I liked the hard foam they were made out of (nowadays "gross" toys are usually squishy/sticky), and I thought the designs were creative. I never threw them at anyone, so maybe I was playing with them wrong. :-/

And gee, I'm glad I voted. I'm delighted to see that several of my picks have made the list.
