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 third series in our continuing line 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). After successful campaigns to produce the first and second OMFG series (available now at several stores), a fresh round of character ideas were submitted from all around the world and the forum voted for their favorite designs to be put in to production for the third series.
OMFG! Series 3 consists of five figures including:
1. Pugnacious designed by Bill MacKay and sculpted by George Gaspar
2. Barbarianaut designed and sculpted by Charles Marsh
3. Dr. Decay designed by Jonathan Wojcik and sculpted by George Gaspar
4. Fruit Punch designed by Scott Tolleson and sculpted by George Gaspar
5. TenCan concept by Richard Brown, designed by Nikolos Sardos, and sculpted by Bryan Fulk
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 continuing this fantastic line of community created figures.
We’ve been working hard trying to find some small way to say thank you to everyone who is supporting the OMFG line and we finally hit on something really exciting...Z.O.M.B.I.E. Pheyden!
We (October Toys) have teamed up with Onell Design to create a unique, undead mini figure version of the popular Glyos character, Pheyden. Based on a drawing by the super talented L’amour Supreme and sculpted by our own George Gaspar, this solid mini figure stands just over 2” tall.
Now for the really exciting part. For all pledges $25 and over, we will include a Z.O.M.B.I.E. Pheyden to match each set of OMFG in your pledge...for no extra charge! So if you pledge for one set of flesh OMFG and one set of black OMFG, you will also receive one flesh Z.O.M.B.I.E. Pheyden and one black Z.O.M.B.I.E. Pheyden. If you pledge for three sets of flesh OMFG, you will also receive three flesh Z.O.M.B.I.E. Pheydens. So on and so forth.
Z.O.M.B.I.E. Pheyden is not part of the OMFG line, but presented as a bonus October Toy Mini Figure (OTMF) who will also play well with your other October Toys Z.O.M.B.I.E. figures. While Z.O.M.B.I.E. Pheyden is a solid mini figure like OMFG figures and not Glyos compatible, we have it on good authority that he would still enjoy hanging out and playing with any other Glyos System figures, too.
Huge thanks to Onell Design and L’amour Supreme for helping us make this bonus figure possible. We can never thank everyone who has supported this project enough, but we hope you will enjoy Z.O.M.B.I.E. Pheyden as much as we do.
Please Note: Z.O.M.B.I.E. Pheyden will only be included free of charge with OMFG Series 3 sets pledged for on Kickstarter. We plan to make individual Z.O.M.B.I.E. Pheyden figures available for purchase from our online store late 2013.
New Pledge Level Added! We have now added a new $50 pledge level called Ersico's Custom Level.
Here's a picture of the 10 customs available to choose from:
Risks and challenges
What about possible production delays?
Good question! We have over a decade of experience producing toys of all kinds, so we are very familiar with the process. We also have two successful OMFG! Kickstarter campaigns under our belt, both of which went quite smoothly (thanks to our awesome backers!). There are occasionally unavoidable delays with these types of projects (i.e. quality control, shipping, customs, etc.), but we have allowed enough time with our expected ship date to account for minor delays. Of course we try our best to keep all of our backers updated throughout the production process and would let you know if anything unexpected came up.
Ersico Custom Level - One hand painted PVC figure from Series 1 or 2(see pic on main page), one set of flesh and one set of Kickstarter exclusive black OMFG! Series 3 mini figures, and sticker! First to back gets first choice of figure and so on.
