I just joined to that one, they accepted me so fast I was surprised lol Another facebook group page for any kind of small figures is Mini Figure Marketplace.

http://octobertoys.com/forum/  is still active (or at least hit-or-miss)

 

I know these aren't forums/Facebook groups, but...

George and Ayleen are both active on instagram and twitter.

Ben has 3dretro.  You can reach him there.

The OT forum never actually closed but there was a mass exodus where most conversation has moved on to specialized FB groups, etc. I don't think this is unique to OT but there announcement that the forums would close definitely drove people elsewhere. All in all, I think forums like this and T are sorta falling to the wayside of popular social media. Only time will tell which will prevail.

 

There are rumors and speculation as to why things have died off at OT. I don't think anyone outside of George and Ayleen know for sure.

 

IMO, Series 4 was not supported well at all. Were there even any colorways? Artist proofs? Outside of the KS and slime green Brainwaves? A real shame because I love everything about Series 4. I almost even bought my own Kaiju Kaos-exclusive colorway but the timing fell poorly with my wife's poor health.

Artist proofs?

This bothered me about series 4. Five artists get a toy produced and 200 free figures thanks to a community vote, and only one has made their pink figures available for sale as far as I know.

Yeah that was a bit rough.

 

I used to collect the artist versions pretty much exclusively because I like pink toys and I like supporting the artists themselves but once I had no chance at getting them anymore I gave up on the line.

As far as "dead" goes I talked to George Gaspar at SDCC, and he says they just got some new sculpting done for series 5.  So it's not dead yet, at least.

I hope the line isn't dead...  It was pretty frustrating when I was getting into collecting these things and finding out that series 4 was delayed, series 5 was in limbo, all the drama over the wonky voting system, and no mention of series 6...  :huh:

Bumpin' this thread because it looks like October Toys has popped it's clogs...  :wacko:

http://octobertoys.com/new-adventures/

 

 

After 12 amazing years, we have decided it’s time to explore new projects and opportunities outside of October Toys. We are so thankful for all of the incredible people we have met and friends we have made though this chapter of our toy lives. There is no way to say thank you enough to the people that have become family to us and to each and every fan who has supported our projects over the years...

 

 

 

So does this spell the end for the OMFG line!?  Will series 5 never get out of the design stage!?

Well that sucks… I was planning on making another order once the store came back online from holiday hiatus - I wonder if they'll unload the remaining stock at some point.

Thank you for the update. Things have seemed weird with Toy Break over the last year.  I think George and Ayleen have gone their separate ways; both professionally and personally. Sad day...

Yeah, disappointing news. I never did get my hands on nearly enough figures from O.M.F.G.

Agreed. The 8 colors seen are the only full releases I have done to date. Red is the latest color added to the palette. I plan to do blue but it likely won't be until 2018. I need to retire a bunch of other colors first. :)

Jeez...I got too busy with other stuff to keep track of OT this past year and had no idea they closed up shop.

 

I was so excited back when I got a design into Series 3 and always hoped it would help get my foot in the door of the mini figure world, but the only other project I was brought onto fell completely apart.

 

Still have some Dr. Decay artist colorways left though...

I've gotten too busy with my comics and stuff to even pitch! My wife knows cg modeling pretty well though and we might do some 3d printed stuff sometime!
