OMFG Series 2 Returning to UofM with Exclusive Color

The Series 1 OMFG Figures in UofM's Exclusive Color

Last week we learned that the OMFG Series 2 Kickstarter campaign was a success. This also means that the University of M.U.S.C.L.E. will be offering its exclusive color again.

Thank you to everyone that placed an order! It was certainly an interesting learning experience, but your excitement around the project made it impossible not to continue with the second series of OMFG figures.

More information, including release dates and test shots, will be forth coming. However some information is 100% ready.

– The figures will be available for ordering through The School Store.
– The price will again be $15 per set.
– Shipping will be handled with USPS flat rate boxes.

The figures will also be available for pre-order, but probably not until much closer to the actual (currently undetermined) release date.

Many people have probably seen the Series 2 prototypes by now, but, just in case, the prototypes for Series 2 can be seen below.

The Series 2 OMFG Prototypes Figures

Editor’s Note: I also have a feeling that these two guys are going to be just as excited, if not more excited, then last time.

    is it just me, or are series 2 just not as cool? My hope for the puking knight sculpt was let down. The pumpkin sculpt is uninspired as is the the Twizzler lips robot. A baby? Boring. The shark is kind of cool, but alone it doesn’t warrant a purchase.

    I don’t want to take up the flag of OMFG apologist, but I really dislike people just saying something isn’t as “cool.” It’s the least meaningful compliant possible. How do you define cool in the first place? And how doesn’t, in this case, OMFG Series 2 adhere to this standard of cool?

    It’s absolutely your prerogative not to like the figures, but just say that. Give some specifics – not buzzwords, like “uninspired,” that attempt to sound impressive or intellectual but convey no real meaning. Conversely it is just as lazy to say something is inspired. You can’t objectively judge another person’s level of inspiration.

    I like the new sculpts. They keep with the very distinct OMFG look and they are unlike any unarticulated, little rubber figures I have ever seen. And the truth is, many other people like it too. If they didn’t, then Series 2 wouldn’t have been successfully funded on Kickstarter.

    I think the real issue is that I do have a legitimate complaint and I am “just [saying] that,” but you don’t like the results. Don’t be the apologist. But do realize that not everyone is going to agree with you. I’m not trying to impress you or the next person, but to express my concern for the direction of OMFG and what was probably some vote tampering that led to series 2. I loved series 1. Series 2 screams pedantic to me. And comments like mine do serve a purpose.

    First you are a little conflicted, demanding that I make it my prerogative and to “just say that.” And then demand I go into great detail by giving specifics. Which is it? Simply saying something, or specifics? You can’t have both, and I am starting to wonder if you’d be content with either outcome.

    Uninspired and I stand by that description. Yes, a halloween pumpkin is, imo, plainly uninspired since that idea did not originate with the sculptor or sketcher. It’s been done a bazillion times, including my childhood artistic self. And I will add that my childhood self was uninspired too.

    The face on the puking knight doesn’t fit into the puke motif. The lips figure reminds me of a Twizzlers commercial AND it’s a robot? I admit, I don’t get it. I have seen figures like the baby and the pumpkin. I don’t get any jollies off them.

    You’ve been too overly defensive of my comments in the past and I don’t understand the reason for your thin skin. My comments stem from a concern over the direction of the OMFG line (and I’m not the only one). Your comments seem over-protective and like you said, apologetic. I think you just need to come to terms with the fact that people aren’t going to agree with you 100% of the time and you don’t need to come down on them just because they don’t sing along with the choir. If someone is going public with a product (or anything else for that matteR), it’s going to receive criticism for better or worse.

    I realize you are in a small community and need to promote one another and pat each other on the back, but that doesn’t mean coming down on my comment just because you disagree. You can disagree with me all you want and that’s cool, but trying to make me feel bad for opening my mouth, or for having an opinion is disappointing.

    I’m sorry, but I can’t have a discussion with an idiot. Your response is idiotic. My last response was not meant to make you “feel bad.” This one is.

    Your prerogative and specifics complaints aren’t on opposite ends of the spectrum. Nor are they somehow mutually exclusive. Your opinion should in fact be built on specific issues. So, for example, if you state that a Pumpkin figure has been done a “bazillion times,” then point out the bazillion Pumpkin figures. Better yet – point out one unpainted, unarticulated, small, rubber pumpkin figure.

    As for me being “too overly defensive of my comments in the past and I don’t understand the reason for your thin skin.” I don’t know what the fuck you are talking about. What does that have to do with your “legitimate concerns” about the second series of OMFG figures?

    I respect anyone that is able to articulate their opinion. It doesn’t mean that I will agree, but I can respect it. Saying that the mouth figure reminds you of a “Twizzlers commercial” doesn’t mean anything. Should I instantly infer that is bad thing? What if it reminded you of a puppet, mouth surgery, Aerosmith, or the dentist?

    I have already spent more time addressing this than I should have. That’s the real tragedy.

    So I’ll end on a high note. The first person to say, “I like Series 2!” in the Comments section will get a free set of figures.

    We have our winner! You were first Dom. I’ll email you to get your address. Once the figures come in, yours will automatically go out.

    Anyone that posted (prior to this post) will save 10% on their order. I’ll figure out the details on that later.
