OMFG! UOM Figure Foto


 
Toy Line: OMFG!
 
Sculpt Name: King Castor
 
Color: University of MUSCLE Yellow
 
Collector's Note: The first wave of OMFG! is comprised of five creative and highly detailed sculpts, but King Castor is a standout for me. It's not that I feel the sculpt itself is necessarily superior to the other figures, but the character especially captures my imagination. (The comic panel for King Castor that Ralph Niese created only adds to the character's imaginative appeal. You can see the full comic at the Onell Glyos blog. Check the resources menu on the right for a link.)
 
The UOM yellow is super attractive as I hope you can see. I had mixed feelings about it at first. I thought it might be too "mustardy" but that's not the case. And I especially love the header card. It may be my favorite of the bunch, and that's saying something as they're all nice and fun. As for the baggy itself; let's just say I was afraid to touch it for fear that it would disintegrate on contact, haha!

I'm glad you like them. I'll admit, even I was nervous how the color would actually turnout. But I was thrilled when I actually saw them in my hand.

As for the header card, I agree! My best friend saved me at the zero hour with his design - and it blew my mind!

The bag. That was a lesson learned with this project. I never would have thought to worry about the bag. Now I will. Thankfully these figures are meant to be opened!

Got my set yesterday! W00t!
I must say I was a little skeptical about this color, I thought it couldn't bring out details too much but I was definitely WRONG.

I have'em right now on my desk and they are just great, the color is quite appealing in person and stands out a lot with the LRG green together. :)
