October Toys OTMFG Glow in the Dark Brocotal Mini-FigureOctober Toys makes good stuff, and when they debuted Brocotal in green I bought it on the spot. Fortunately - or unfortunately - I liked it so much that I didn't feel the need to get it in another color. It was perfect! But there's always room for one more, so the glow-in-the-dark version issued last November was a must.

The figure has an excellent form, with the sculpt being partially actual vegetation integrated into a sculpted figure that's sort of a little gnome guy. It's hard to tell thanks to the properties of most glowing plastic, which absorbs much of the sculpted detail as its semi-translucent skin lets light bounce through it in weird ways giving you more of a general idea of its shape, but not really of the finer details.

Since the sculpted detail is tough to see, what matters is if the figure glows brightly. And it does! October Toys' (and indeed, anything that comes out of the Axis of Onell Design) glow plastic may be the best money can buy today, or any day. I've got a big shelf filled with glowing toys from over the years and it's really interesting to see how some (but not all) of the newer glowing figures tend to be the best. Some of the new guys are also the worst - but not from this factory or these guys. Ask me about them if you see me in person somewhere. All that matters for this guy is if he's bright, and he's plenty bright.

For two bucks, this is a steal - your not having one is a crime against indie toy collecting. October Toys' wares are consistently the cheapest with the highest quality, and the only real disappointment you may feel is that there is too much variety in terms of colorways. If you're able to restrain yourself and only buy a couple, you're going to have a good time. Since October Toys understands just how much some of us love our glowing figures, glow in the dark Brocotal is a winner. Even at $4 he'd still be pretty fantastic. If you can still get one for two bucks, you owe it to yourself to get one for your home. Not office, as it will likely never be dark enough to glow there. This is the kind of figure you put in a room that's dark when you turn off the lights - like above your TV or home computer, if you're old enough to still use a computer and not do everything on your phone or iPad.
