Last October I had the opportunity to help introduce a new toy company, Ori Toy, to western collectors. Many of you were interested in their new figure design, the Ori-Fig, but were unable to satisfy your curiosity since the line had not yet found a distributor.
The wait is over!
Ori Toy has joined forces with BigBadToyStore to bring the first five characters in the Ori-Fig line to western toy markets. The line includes the first four characters from the epic Chinese story, Romance of the Three Kingdoms, and the fifth character is from the manga spinoff Ravages of Time.
These toys have the unique stylization of a vinyl figure combined with the super-articulation and playability of an action figure. I truly love the creativity and ingenuity that has gone into making them and I really hope this line continues long into the future.
So check them out at BigBadToyStore.
Also check out Ori Toy’s news on upcoming Ori-Figs and their new line with 3A, called Acid Rain. It’s an interesting mix of Transformers/GI Joe fighting themes in a hellish future.
