I agree with you, the lack of a weapon is a little disappointing, but otherwise these figures are fun on a bun. Hopefully we'll get an accessory pack with a pile of hand-held weapons and replacement accessory limbs.

I also think it's worth noting that while most small independent toy makers are using the sofubi format to express themselves, these are made of solid, extremely durable injection-molded PVC. Onell really is paving the way here to do something different.

I was speaking with Matt Doughty recently and he said, "I want it to be the summer of '87 forever." I think these guys have the right idea.

Oh, yeah, love that black test shot. Lucky dog!

That's not a throw...!

THAT'S a throw!

...Just keep in mind I'm a lefty...and I had to sorta whip it sidearm to avoid hitting something valuable or crashing into something in my cramped loft! ;)

Anyway, I'm clearly biased as well. I love what these guys have done...and I love even more what they have coming!

Just to re-post what I've mentioned on TBDX, what I found fascinating about these toys is that at SDCC, everyone was stopping by to check 'em out. Young adults, old ornery collectors, young children. No one left without a smile on their face...

At the same time, only one sort of people or another would visit the other toy makers' booths. It really takes something to have the universal appeal Onell Design has touched upon.
