OMFG! Series 4 Is Up on Kickstarter
September 25, 2014

OMFGSeries4Logo

Our pals over at OctoberToys have launched the Kickstarter campaign for their fourth series of O.M.F.G. minifigures.

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 with five new awesome characters in our continuing line of OMFG – Outlandish Mini Figure Guys!

OMFG Series 4 consists of five figures including:

1. Fossil Freak designed by Michael Stearns from Washington and sculpted by George Gaspar from California

2. Wooly Wisp designed and sculpted by Billy Parker from South Carolina

3. Bullseye designed by (Raging Nerdgasm) Tom Khayos and Ana Bruja-Khayos from Florida sculpted by George Gaspar from California

4. Tree Witched designed by MudMarox and sculpted by GormTransMonster from Italy

5. The Siren designed by Corey Webb from California and sculpted by George Gaspar from California

The OMFG project originated from the talented group of artists, designers, and toy enthusiasts on the October Toys/Toy Break forum (http://www.octobertoys.com/forum). After successful campaigns to produce the first three OMFG series (available now online and at many retail locations), hundreds of character ideas were submitted from all around the world and the forum voted for their favorite designs to be put in to production.

As you can see, bringing this project to life has truly been a community effort and now we 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 also invite you to come join us in the forum and submit your characters for future OMFG series at http://www.octobertoys.com/forum

Speaking of future series, we would like to note that voting for the next series of OMFG characters will be handled a little differently than previous series – only OMFG Series 4 Kickstarter backers will be able to vote on Series 5 designs. This includes all OMFG Series 4 Kickstarter backers who pledge $1 or more, regardless of reward level.

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.com Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
