New and unique Mordles are hard to pull of, because so far the biggest differences we see from release to release are colors. The Deluxe Flesh with OMFG Logo Mordles are the first versions of the little guys with tramp stamps, specifically the OMFG logo on the back of each one. And it actually really works - you could totally put other faction markings on these if you really felt like it!
If you've been with us for the long haul you know what to expect - the flesh color has black eyes, teeth, and claws (or a totally unpainted version also available) plus the aforementioned marking on the back. Each figure is pretty dang short, and the flesh color is just a pinch pinker than the SUCKLE and MUSCLE figures - but it's very, very close to the impossible-to-match fleshtone. This extra marking - which in the grand scheme of thing really makes no sense - elevates the set to one you should probably snag, just because it's a unique feature. And it's also not like we're drowning in new Mordle colors lately as it is.
The black paint is nice and glossy, making the eyes into cold, black marbles of death and the teeth into creepy fangs. The claws look like nice glossy claws, so there's not much to that. Thanks to the pale skin and dark eyes, it almost makes it look like these are hairless, shaved cave dwellers. You get pretty much the same look as the classic Rocks & Bugs & Things food figures, unfortunately I still need a rock or a bug here.
I do not need more Mordles. Like, at all. But here I am, buying more. They didn't sell out at first, and without new designs or rocks or bugs it is tougher to get excited about the same 10 sculpts over and over again... but when you do something like this, they become compelling again. I'd love to see more markings on them in the future if they're going to keep busting them out, if for no reason other than to get me to pick some up. Might I suggest drool/blood coming out of the mouths, or perhaps spots or stripes on their backs? I'd drop the extra $2 per 10-pack for something like that to keep it interesting.
