About this project

OMFG! Series 1

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 (http://www.octobertoys.com/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!

FAQ

  • Yes, soon. While the pledge time is over, we will have some of the flesh colored figures up for sale at http://www.octobertoys.com as soon as the figures are in.

    There will also be 4 exclusive colors for sale by 4 Kickstarter backers and we will keep you posted as to where to order those figures as they are released.

    Keep in mind the Black set of figures was strictly made to the number of Kickstarter pledges that ordered them and will not be sold later on the website.

  • Of course! If you want a poster but want to pledge in a different category as well simply add $10 for the poster and send a note to us so we know you want it included.

  • Of course! Simply go in and raise your pledge amount by the total amount you want to add, and send us a note of what you added so we know.
    For example: You already pledged $55 for a shirt and both colored sets with a sticker, but you want to add another set of flesh colored figures. No problem! Just bump your pledge up by $10 to cover the flesh set, keep your incentive marked at the $55 spot, and send us a message of what you are adding for the extra money. We will mark a note on the back end so we know what it's for.
    Thanks so much for all the help!

  • Yes! Please note that if you are outside of the US the shipping will be slightly higher so we ask you to pitch in a little more to help us cover that, but we want these to be everywhere in the world, so of course we will ship to you!
