OMFG! Update and some creativity…


By Shawn Robare

I have no idea where this week has gone too!  Well, I figured I’d through up a quite post to update on the progress of the below OMFG! Kickstarter project which just this morning crossed over the funding mark.  There’s still a good month and a half to go until the campaign is over so if you’re interested in helping fun a possible Series 2 and would like to get your hands on some cool toys in the process, head on over and make a pledge.  I’ve been pretty inspired by this whole community toy project that I threw my hat in the ring with a couple of designs for the 2nd series.  First up is a little guy I call Boom Box

The drawing is a little wonky, but the concept hopefully gets across.  He’s a little bit hip hop, a little Soundwave/Megatron mash-up, and a whole lot of Boom!  I’m thinking he also has an evil twin named Ghetto Blaster…

Next up is more of a silly idea that I had to draw once it popped into my head.  It’s Stripe the Gremlin wearing a Mogwai (read Gizmo) hoodie.  Probably a little too “brand” specific for the OMFG! minifigures, but I had a lot of fun drawing him.  Think I might take a crack at coloring him this weekend (And now I did, though only some basic colors)…

 

Anyway, if you’re at all interested in the OMFG! project, head on over to the Kickstarter page or the October Toys forums and get in on the fun and speak up about your favorite designs!

    Pax – Thanks man. It was too early, but man it would so cool if he was considered for the 2nd series. I’d love to mark off “Designed a toy” on my list of crap to do in life…

    Boom Box is radical, Shawn. I love him.
