Outlandish Mini Figures Guys!
The guys at October Toys did it again, after Gwins and Z.O.M.B.I.E.S. this is the last outstanding project from the uber-talented community there.
This is a quote from the project's page at Kickstarter:
Remember the fun of collectible mini figures like M.U.S.C.L.E. and Monster In My Pocket? So do we! That's why we are proud to present to you the inaugural series of OMFG! - Outlandish Mini Figure Guys!
This project originated from the fabulous group of artists, designers, and toy enthusiasts that have gathered at 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.
OMFG! Series 1 consists of five figures including:
1. Multiskull designed and sculpted by Charles Marsh (aka Monsterforge) from South Carolina
2. Crawdad Kid designed and sculpted by Daniel Yu (aka Dory) from Singapore
3. Phantom Outhouse designed by Kyle Thye from Iowa and sculpted by Ralph Niese from Germany
4. King Castor designed and sculpted by Dominic Campisi (aka The Evil Earwig) from California
5. Stroll designed by John "Spanky" Stokes from California and sculpted by George Gaspar from California
As you can see from this list, it has truly been a community effort to bring these figures to life and now we would like to invite you to be part of that community! The prototypes are finished and we are ready to move forward with overseas production. With the help of Kickstarter contributors like yourself, we look forward to making this first series - of what we hope to be a continuing line of community created figures - a reality.
Any funds above and beyond the goal will be dedicated to getting OMFG! Series 2 going. We also invite you to come join us in the forum and submit your characters for OMFG! Series 2!
The goal has been reached after 5 days only! And if this isn't enough for you to love and run to fund this project here are some photos of the prototypes of OMFG! Series 1 as well as the gorgeous art for the logo and the package!
I can't wait for these guys, they're awesomely designed and sculpted even better! If you have crazy ideas for some new characters be sure to join forums and check the topic for OMFG! Series 2 Design Submissions!
