Cool Kickstarter Campaign: OMFG! Series 3



     It's no secret that I love minifigures.  Those wonderfully wacky M.U.S.C.L.E. figures from the 1980's have left an undeniable impression on me, so a few years ago October Toys first started the OMFG line (Outlandish Mini Figure Guys).  Led by the very cool husband and wife team of George and Ayleen Gaspar, OMFG. is a unique line in that members of the October Toys/Toy Break forums design and vote on the characters to be included in each wave.  OMFG series 3 is now being funded through Kickstarter (with only 16 days left) and is now over 2/3rds of the way to its goal.  Either head to the OMFG Series 3 Kickstarter page or check out some more detailed pictures after the break!



      OMFG series 3 contains a truly unique assortment of characters. Initially my favorite was Fruit Punch, but the more I look at Barbarianaut, the more I like him.  Still, every figure in this set is a winner!  The first 2OMFG sets have been extremely solid and durable with excellent, crisp detail.  They look amazing mixed in with other mini figure lines like M.U.S.C.L.E., Monster in my Pocket, Trash Bag Warriors, and S.L.U.G. Zombies.  You can pick up the flesh colored sets with a $10 contribution, an exlcusive black set with a $15 dollar contribution, and various other incentives like t-shirts, stickers, and even half of the original molds for these guys with other levels of contribution.  Plus, now if you contribute $25 or more, you get this exlcusive Pheyden figure based on the Glyos character.
