OMFG Series 1 Revisited
(New Colors Review)

A friend of mine was able to snag me a set of each from the convention. I’m not sure if he’d want me to drop his name, but I do want to make sure to give him a hearty thank you each time I review anything he picked up for me. So, again, thank you!

While I love all the colorways so far – I’ve found myself happier with many of the second wave of colors. The GITD, the color-change, and the clear blue are easily some of my favorites and I’ve been treasuring the AP Pinks most because they were a little more difficult to obtain and since they all came from the artists directly – my Phantom Shithouse button is displayed proudly.

The best thing here is the news that OMFG is prospering. There’s actually a 12th colorway, gold, coming soon from Luke’s Toy Store. OMFG Series 2 was successfully funded in early August so those’ll be along before we know it. And even, better Series 3 voting has begun. It’s a great time to be an OMFG fan!

  1. I love these little guys, i am only missing the Onell set, by the time I decided to collect all the colors it was sold out 🙁

  2. Dang! That’s quite the little collection already!

    Love this kinda DIY stuff getting more and more prevalent!

  3. Great review! I still need to hunt a LRG Green set down. Undecided on gold. Now that series will be dropping often I can’t go completest and it is best to shake that habit soon. But I do want green. I could probably do without yellow if I found a trade… hrmmmm

    I’m def going complete on flesh and black as long as possible. If the AP’s stay pink then I’ll maybe try them too. Though difficulty will change with every artist.

    And now its time to drop some SHAMELESS SELF PROMOTION.

    I have 3 designs in the voting for series 3. #94 Coughin’ Coffin and #96 Underbed are my original characters. Coughin’ Coffin has been sculpted by Ed Gein. Underbed will be sculpted if he is selected. I also had a hand in designing #125, Ten-Can. The character concept was by Richard Oceans, I did the design drawing, and Ed Gein sculpted the prototype based on my art.

    If you could please go over, register, and look through all the entries and VOTE! Vote for figures you want to buy! If they happen to be mine I would be ever grateful, but really take a good look. There’s so many fun entries this time around! Support this line!!

    1. Awesome! Underbed was actually among my choices.

      I was thinking about giving the GITD figs a dark wash to bring out the details in the amazing sculpts. But I’m kind of torn between doing that and keeping them as they are, just for novelty’s sake.

      Has anyone given this try?

      1. It can be hard to customize the set you intend to keep, but if the clean up the wash nicely and kept it to the crevices they could look cool. I think the Onell white almost always looks better with the lines filled in.

        Have you tried asking or checking on the Oct Toys forum? They have a custom-type section and I’m sure someone’s tried it…

        1. Thanks a bunch for the tip Noisy! I’ll be sure to scrounge around the forum too (didn’t consider that option…).

  4. I love the group shot, and I really like the shots of all versions of one character. Another line that I just collect vicariously through you–your pics are enough for me. 🙂

  5. I don’t know what it is about wanting to have a bunch of the same object in different colors standing next to each other, but I have the sickness, and apparently you do, too. Too much time coloring with that big 64 box of Crayola as a child, maybe?

    Anyway, I may have fallen into Glyos collecting, but I’m not following you down this rabbit hole. Luckily, I have a mental escape hatch: I collected MUSCLE as a kid, but got in and out before they started up with the random colors. So the standard pink (peach? what do they call it?) is good enough for me.
