This is “Analog Agent Benjamin” coming at you this week with…. OMFG! (Outlandish Mini Figure Guys!)
Remember the M.U.S.C.L.E. Men and Monster In My Pocket figures series that were very popular back in the 80s & 90s? Well the guys at OctoberToys did, and that’s why they made the OMFG! (Outlandish Mini Figure Guys!) figure series.
What makes the OMFG! series cool is that it was made “By Mini Figure Fans For Mini Figure Fans”. What OctoberToys has done is they have an art contest were you can enter ideas for figures for future line-ups for the OMFG! figure series, then the fans get to vote on the top 5 figure ideas that will get made into figures for that series, then they get posted on Kickstarter.com to be funded.
So far, there has been two line-up for the OMFG! figure series, and they already have a third line-up up for funding on Kickstarter.com.
They also already have an art contest going for the fourth series on the OctoberToys OMFG! Forum, so if you have any good ideas for figures you want to see be made, now would be a good time to enter.
