October Toys OTMF Glow in the Dark Toy Break Mini-FigureOctober Toys is a tough nut to crack - plastic impresario George .shtmlar has sculpted tons of amazing little figures over the years for some pretty big players in the toy business, and shepherded his own lines like the wonderful OMFG. He's also a host of Toy Break, a video show, and this Glow in the Dark Toy Break Mini-Figure is based on a classic keshi release with a head that makes it a swell mascot for his program.

I first saw the purple one at Comic-Con 2013 and I think my exact words to George were "So what kind of bribe do I have to give you to get one of these?" (They were a promotional item given away at a panel that work obligations prevented me from attending, sadly.) Cube top, squared off. Eight corners, 90-degree angles. Flat top, stares straight ahead. Stock parts, blockhead! (See, Devo lyrics work for everything.) Since that purple debut, we've seen this glow version as well as a grey version - and in January they sold for a buck. That's just plain bonkers for a figure like this, which means that George is either some crazy rich person or somehow employs elf labor not unlike one Mr. Santa Claus - there's no other reason why anything this good should be this cheap. The sculpt is not unlike an announcer figure from a famous 1980s toy line - you know the one - with a wonderfully anachronistic television set. You'll notice next to the Toy Break logo on the screen are these round object. These are called "dials," kids - as in "Don't touch that dial!"

October Toys OTMF Glow in the Dark Toy Break Mini-Figure

On the back of the figure are "O/T MF" markings - which should also remind you of that famous miniature figure line - but other than that it's just a normal and cool little figure. Suit, tie, shoes, microphone - and of course the television head. The head of the figure which inspired this figure actually looks a little like the creator of this figure, but the body has had numerous tweaks - you'll notice buttons and pockets on the front of the Toy Break man, for example.

I'm predisposed to loving pretty much everything October Toys puts out, so at a buck this is a can't-miss proposition. I got mine in March and it sold out a couple of days after I bought mine - I assume its appeal is limited to a certain flavor of toy dork (Toy Break fans, members of the Little Rubber Guys forums) but I resemble that remark. Should you ever have the chance to drop a few bucks on this little guy, do so. You won't be sorry!
