Waaaay back in September of 2009, I linked up with a company called October Toys to do a little giveaway for a couple different prize packs of their Monsters In My Pocket/M.U.S.C.L.E. style Z.O.M.B.I.E. toys, which were just hitting the market at the time. Here we are three years later, and the company has once again tapped into those vintage stylings, with a line called OMFG; Outlandish Mini Figure Guys. Series 1 of those toys is available now from their online shop, and tonight you've got a chance to take them all home free of charge. That's right, October Toys & Freddy In Space have partnered up once more!
Here's a closer look at the series, and the five 2" PVC mini figures that are contained in it. The series has been released in a couple different colors, and it's the purple pack you are playing for tonight!
1. Multiskull designed/sculpt by Charles Marsh (Monsterforge)
2. Crawdad Kid designed/sculpt by Daniel Yu (Dory)
3. Phantom Outhouse designed by Kyle Thye / sculpt by Ralph Niese
4. King Castor designed/sculpt by Dominic Campisi (The Evil Earwig)
5. Stroll designed by John "Spanky" Stokes / sculpt by George Gaspar
As a big time fan and childhood collector of Monsters In My Pocket, these speak to me on an incredibly nostalgic level, which is why I love them so much and why I wanted to spread the love to you folks. So if you dig them as much as I, here's all you need to do to enter!
Leave me a comment below with your e-mail address and the name of your favorite Monsters In My Pocket creature. Ya know, just so I can be sure that those kinda toys are truly your bag!
The giveaway will run through next Tuesday, August 14th, so be sure to get your entries in by then. Good luck!
Hey by the way! The OMFG line has just been nominated for two Designer Toy Awards, in the categories of Best Mini Series and Fan Favorite. The Fan Favorite category is of course voted on by the fans, so you can head over to the Designer Toy Awards website and vote for them if they tickle your fancy! Voting ends September 1st, with winners announced in October at New York Comic Con.
Another exciting bit of news is that the Kickstarter campaign for OMFG Series 2 just met its funding goal about 24 hours ago, which means more of these little guys will soon be headed our way. Check out the campaign to see prototype images of the second series!!
