Remember the fun of collectible mini figures like M.U.S.C.L.E. and Monster In My Pocket? If so, you’re really going to love the inaugural series of OMFG! (Outlandish Mini Figure Guys) from October Toys and the crazy talented members of the October Toys/Toy Break forum! Over the course of several months, dozens of character ideas were submitted from all around the world and the forum voted for their favorite designs to be put in to production. The result is the amazing figures you see here!
The Blot first heard about this Kickstarter project from fellow toy blogger Spanky Stokes, and I was lucky enough to get involved in the process in time to actually vote on the designs for OMFG! Series 1. The minute I heard about this project I knew it was something special, and I’m not the only one. In less than a week the Kickstarter project has already reached its goal of $11,000! How awesome is that? What’s amazing about this project is that it has brought together toy collectors from all genres (not just the designer toy world) together to help make these awesome M.U.S.C.L.E. style figures a reality.
OMFG! Series 1 consists of five figures including: Multiskull designed and sculpted by Charles Marsh (aka Monsterforge), Crawdad Kid designed and sculpted by Daniel Yu (aka Dory), Phantom Outhouse designed by Kyle Thye and sculpted by Ralph Niese, King Castor designed and sculpted by Dominic Campisi (aka The Evil Earwig), and Stroll designed by John "Spanky" Stokes and sculpted by George Gaspar.
The OMFG! Mini Figure Series has truly been a community effort and now is your chance to help out! While the total amount needed to produce this series may seem high, the actual awards are unbelievably cheap! In fact, there are some really cool rewards for as little as $1, but for just $10 you can get the entire five figure OMFG! set in flesh colored vinyl. For $15 you can the Kickstarter Exclusive all black five figure OMFG! vinyl figure set for just $15, or get both sets, flesh and black, for $25. There are 54 days left to donate to the production of OMFG! Mini Figure Series 1, but why wait? Head to Kickstarter now and pledge! Any donation overages will be put towards the creation of OMFG! Series 2, which is already in the works.
