Well, after all this time and thinking that it'd never happen, I finally have my Grail OMFG figures in hand and my full colour set is now complete. Like many, I'd given up on this set and called all my other colours a complete set, but not anymore. Such an awesome red in hand too, which the picture just doesn't show.

Where is/was this available? I didn't know red was a colour for these things.

Yeh I don't think many people know about them. They were produced back in the day with all of the other colours, but never fully released by the company that took the colour on.

Apart from a set I've seen pictures of that are owned by Spanky (Stroll) Stokes, this is the only the second ever set I've seen. Hence why I'd given up on owning them.

That solid red always makes a good color for figures.

Very cool! But how/where did you get them?
I gotta believe they made more than 2 sets.

Smudge was the user name on the OT forum that bought the red set. Whoever that is has/had 200 sets.

So someone bought an entire color run and did nothing with them? That's so odd.

 

A red Crawdad would have been pretty fun.

Yep like JK says, there's probably at least 200 sets out there, but they've never been released for some unknown reason, so they've been in hiding for years now. It makes no sense at all - especially from a business point of view. If I was to hazard a guess I'd say that all the 5 original designers have/had a set, plus maybe Geroge G, but as I said before, I've only ever seen a pic of Spanky's set, plus the ones that I now own. Even when you google search you don't get much.

PM'd.

I contact OT back in the day to purchase a run, but they (I think Eileen) told me 'No'.  I wanted to do a florescent orange or green Series 1.
