ToyFinity Mordles Rampaging Storm Edition (Green) Mini-FiguresBecause green is awesome, the Mordles Rampaging Storm Edition (Green) Mini-Figures are worthy of your attention. The Mordles are new and improved reproductions of a toy line from the 1980s nobody remembers, so seeing them at a fraction of the original price with superior quality control and more interesting colors should result in an instant sell-out. Alas, this was not to be - these cool little guys haven't quite sold out yet, but the enthusiasm for them runs strong with collectors. Increased communications with China have allowed fans to get licenses and start companies to crank out a toy line that may appeal to hundreds of fans, rather than hundreds of thousands of fans. I would never have had a Mordle of my own were it not for this line being made - $20-$60 for a single vintage Mordle? That's too rich for my blood. $1.20 per? Yeah, OK, let's dance.

ToyFinity Mordles Rampaging Storm Edition (Green) Mini-FiguresThe many designs have been replicated here in a light green color that doesn't quite match anything else I've seen in the recent exploits of the Glyos/Onell factories in China. The selling point of this set is Commander Zogg, a long-faced little guy who is described as the Commander of All Mordles. He was on the Fan Club certificate this year, and I generally like the idea of getting the purple-eyed 1-inch high figure a little more attention.

ToyFinity Mordles Rampaging Storm Edition (Green) Mini-FiguresAfter all, like many Urban Vinyl and designer toys, most people just look at these things as a neat figure - there's not necessarily going to be a nostalgia string to pull. A little characterization goes a long way, and as the line progresses only a couple of these guys have proper names. Comics have been teased - we saw a nice preview of one - but as of yet few actual Mordles show up to do anything.

Green and purple are often "bad guy colors" in toys, or are at least secondary or non-heroic characters. (Take that, Donatello.) This batch has purple claws and mouths, with eyes to match - as of yet none of the smaller Mordles have differing colors of mouths and eyes, but a large vinyl figure does and it looks a heck of a lot better for it. You might be noticing that I'm not saying a lot about these figures, and that's because they're a challenge to talk up once you get past the color variations - you have a few figures like Zogg that look more eloquent, a few with vicious and toothy Critter-like faces, and others who are just kind of there. They're incredibly well-sculpted, nicely-replicated, and frankly fun little guys to keep around on your desk - but it is quite the challenge to point at something about them to say that the Rampaging Storm is in any way superior than the rest. Do you like green? You'll like these.

ToyFinity Mordles Rampaging Storm Edition (Green) Mini-Figures

This line faces a few challenges in the post-ToyFare world, as few toy sites are going to give any toy line a lot of attention without a constant stream of news and new releases - such is the danger when you produce a line at a fair price and in reasonable numbers to keep them available. Many of the columns I post are about how things are in short supply, or overpriced, or generally how they do or don't work - it's strange to just have a figure arrive and work as advertised at a price that's probably on the low side. It's fun! It'll stand up on your desk without a fight! Rocks love to eat them! Go ahead and buy some, you're in for a treat. Right now I'm crossing my fingers for glow-in-the-dark Mordles and "MUSCLE"-flesh-colored Mordles. And rocks, and bugs. I'm kinda good for things right now.
