Crawler Creeping WEB

We have received a press release from Toyfinity Toys announcing the return of a classic 80’s toy line: Rocks & Bugs & Things – The Mordles. Toyfinity Toys is bringing back that line, as well as the classic Robo Force line! Check out the press release below.

In June 2013, prepare for the return of one of the forgotten toy lines of the 1980s – THE MORDLES!

In 1985, the classic Ideal property ROCKS AND BUGS AND THINGS detailed the never-ending battle between creatures disguised as rocks and bugs, while exploring their need to consume the mischievous Mordles – their only food source. Check out the classic commercial for the line here:

Mordles prices have been ridiculous since the early days of eBay – but in 2013, the Mordles return in all-new adventures and colors at an affordable price from Toyfinity Toys!

These little whirlwinds of energy and personality will once again have their chance to shine in a direct-to-consumer line available at and select brick-and-mortar retailers such as the House of Fun in Oaklyn, New Jersey.
Rescued from obscurity with the assistance of the curator of, Toyfinity Toys – in conjunction with Onell Design, creators of the Glyos System ( toyline – has recreated the full set of the ten vintage Mordles in all-new colors…and for the first time, with painted toenails.
Mordles love to arrive in groupings called waves; the first wave consists of six editions, released two editions per month starting June 28th, 2013.
The first two editions are:
Standard Edition Mordles (yellow) ten pack with special bonus item – $16.
Crawler Edition Mordles (blue) ten pack – $12
Teaser photos are currently up at, with more detailed pictures to follow soon.By the demand of the fans of Mordles, a club has been created which guarantees members the chance to purchase at least one of every Mordles product released in 2013 – Club Mordle!

Club memberships are available now at through June 16th (or while memberships last). For the low price of $10, members will receive a packet designed to evoke memories of the classic fan club kits of days gone by. There are no toy-based products included in the Club Mordle kit. Members will also have the opportunity to vote on a future Mordles production run.

Unlike other subscriptions, Toyfinity Toys is not locking anyone in purchasing product blindly. Members will have access to a store prior to the date that the general public will be allowed to purchase the figures, starting on Monday June 17th. The store will only be available for a limited time, the full details of which can be found here (

    So excited for these. I have 8 of the 10 original mordles, but like the article says, prices for these guys have gotten quite ridiculous, especially on eBay lately.

    I've never seen or heard of these before.

    Judging by that vintage commercial, they were designed for use with other toy lines in mind. That's always cool.
