I have nothing to do with this project (haven't even pledged yet) - I saw this today on Battlegrip.com and knew the rest of the LRGers needed to know about this amazing project!

It's hard to gauge the scale of these, but judging from the Kickstarter page, these are very much in the vein of our beloved MUSCLEs. It appears they've tried to replicate the rubber as well - the texture of the prototypes above looks spot on.
We've got 59 days remaining to raise the capital to make this happen - it only takes $10 to secure a set of 5 OMFG! toys.. lets help make these awesome toys exist!

Link to original thread @ Octobertoys forum. Incidentally, these are the same guys behind the amazing ZOMBIE minifigs - a must-own for MUSCLE fans!

(I hope this is okay to post here. It's very muscle related and inspired by.)

Hey guys! Just wanted to pop over here and let you know about a new line of minifigs inspired by muscle and other little rubber guys.

The line is called OMFG! Or Outlandish Mini Figure Guys and will be a full production line. This line has been a long time in the making. It started with a love of minifigures of all types. Many of us from around the world on the October Toys forum brainstormed the idea, came up with 40+ design, voted on the ones we like, and designed the graphics for it. This is very much a fan driven project. If the first series is successful, it will continue to move on to series two and so on where everyone can input their designs and ideas. This will always be a fan driven project.

Here's where we come in. Since it's fan driven, it will also be fan funded. We have started a Kickstarter page to help fund this. Check out the link, watch the video, and see if this interests you. Thanks for your time!

Heheh.. I just started another topic about this awesome project a short while ago.. perhaps a mod can merge the two? Regardless, it's very OK to post this sort of thing here - these guys look amazing! I'm going to be pledging; not sure if I can scrape together enough to get the exclusive black fig's too, but I'll certainly try. I really hope that enough investors pledge for this project to be funded!

Here's a scale reference.

NOTE: The white Multiskull is a prototype that goes to the factory.

Very creative figures! I like the skull and the outhouse figures. What happens to our money if the $11,000 isn't met? Do we get what we paid for, or do we get our money back?

You don't get charged your pledge amount until we hit 100%. So no money leaves your account until the $11k is hit. Sadly, that's mostly tooling costs...

NOOOOOOOOO! as he grips his hairs from both sides,
"Not another toy line to collect"

Someone has finally done it,M.U.S.C.L.E. meets MIMP toy line.
Whoever made the Freddie M.U.S.C.L.E. should submit it to these
guys so it could be added to the OMFG line,it would fit in really well.
I want a furry Cyclops.

'On Sale' or 'For Sale'. It's really the same thing! The word, 'Sale' means YOU CAN BUY IT,
not that it is discounted. We as consumers are conditioned to think"On Sale"means it's cheaper.
