Cue sad trombone.
Over the past month or two, I have been watching other blogs put up posts and reviews about October Toys’ awesome little OMFG figures. Like Ralphie in the Christmas Story movie, I would run to the mailbox everyday, hoping my figures were there, but sadly they never arrived.
I forgot about them until I came across a receipt for my contribution to the Kickstarter campaign. After sending an email, the fine folks at October Toys took care of me with lightning speed, and I am now the proud owner of the exclusive black figures and the flesh-toned set, along with a bunch of excellent swag.
I’m not going to do a review since just about every other site in the toy collecting world has already done so, but I will say that these figures are incredibly cool and fun, and are a great throwback to the M.U.S.C.L.E.S. figures of my youth. I applaud the crew of October Toys for bringing their dream to reality, through a ton of hard work. It’s been educational to follow the process from the initial funding stage all the way through to the final product, and it really does show that if you have a passion for something, you can do pretty much anything.
