Exodus Fabulous Disaster Patch

Can anyone explain the artwork in this old exodus fabulous disaster patch? I don’t recall seeing these characters in the album artwork and was wondering if anyone had any context?

To me it looks like a devil holding a whip and is trying to catch the blue guy who popped out of his chest.

The artwork is cool but wasn’t sure how the characters relate to the album?

What do you guys think?

I’ve wondered the same myself. A goofy looking patch but it’s still cool.

The more you stare at it the less sense it makes. But can't stop looking, it's such a fabulous disaster.
The devil killing some low level RPG slime?

I’m glad I’m not the only one 😆 I messaged the members of exodus on instagram about it. I’ll let you know if I hear back from any of them.

For all the years I’ve owned this album, I’ve never noticed this before.

I always curious about this until someday I noticed this spot hehehe, for details like that I always prefer vintage patches or boots with old school designs!

meaningless's picture

same....wtf..hahahahahahaha

skeleton_of_society's picture

Oh yes I think I see it. Good catch. But I’m still confused as to what it is.

Demolition_hell_hammer's picture

Probably just a random statue hahaha,yeah this one was hard to see, I always wondering about this cover of the patch until someday I noticed that comes from this spot hahaha

skeleton_of_society's picture

Yes very interesting. Perhaps the blue guy is the result of radiation from nuclear war. Like a mutation.

Demolition_hell_hammer's picture

Maybe hehehe, let's see if one of the members you sent message on Instagram can answer you something about this "statue"

Dr. Wilbur Graves's picture

Wow! That's true. But now I'm wondering why they didn't make a patch of the TV with the fish on top.

Demolition_hell_hammer's picture

A TV would look ugly maybe this is the reason they used this statue xD

Good call could be a possibility

It is the 'bug-eye ghost' from the 80's toyline 'The Real Ghostbusters'
and
The figure 'Spidrax' from the 80's toyline 'Sectaurs'

RealAnton.io's picture

theres alot more vintage toys that are on the album cover too

skeleton_of_society's picture

Oh wow I would of never figured this out. Very cool! Thanks for the info!

RealAnton.io's picture

That’s alright! I collect vintage action figures aswell as patches, so having my favourite band put a load of figures in their album cover is great lol

skeleton_of_society's picture

Haha yes good combination xD

Dr. Wilbur Graves's picture

That's so awesome! So it's not a devil at all. And they're not connected, so the "devil" is not whipping the ghost they just happened to be close to each other. And then they made a patch out of them XD

skeleton_of_society's picture

Maybe their two favorite toys 🤷‍♂️

Demolition_hell_hammer's picture

Wow,amazing!!!

bad_american1992's picture

Dude I am impressed that you can identify both of these!! Wonder if you can find on eBay.... a must have for a true Exodus fanatic

RealAnton.io's picture

Thank you lol!! But yes they can both be found on ebay, the 'bug-eye ghost' more commonly, and is worth around £15-£20 in good condition. Spidrax is not awfully rare but can be tricking finding in good condition and complete... however complete with accessories range from £50-£100.

I use to buy and sell vintage toys alot and looking back, i had a few Spidrax's over some years. Wish i had kept one lol. But i do have a bug eye ghost that i've kept!

skeleton_of_society's picture

I’m convinced it is Spidrax cause he also yields a whip as featured in the patch. Great find!

no karate in pit's picture

ahh yeah thats cool

skeleton_of_society's picture

Mystery solved
