Uglydoll Action Figures

Don't call them urban vinyl!
These are loaded with an action feature.
Actually, the first series was supposed to
be revealed last Toy Fair and be released
today but we took too long with them.
They are much more squishy than the
Critterbox versions. Also 1/4th the size.
But they needed that semi-squishy feel,
like how real "vinyl" in mom and pop
toy shops used to feel. So I held things up.
Now they're good to go. Almost.

Uh but then we got very picky over packaging.
The goal was "under $9.00" but the
nicer paper and extra glue for high
quality blind boxes was making that
tricky, so we'll TRY for end of the year.
If not , then NY Comic-con for sure.
We can fly some in for Uglycon NYC
at Giant Robot New York this December too.
Oh and now the goal is $8.00.

Action waist twist! How's that for super
posable?! Much like Mothman, we went
for the totally insane approach and
put the mandatory line right in the
middle where everyone can see.
This series is based on the books,
so I had to capture that action stance.
Sorry about the vinyls and mini-vinyls
from 2005 being cut short before.
(Trivia: The Umas were based on those actual shapes,
and modeled off the same files.)

The light kind of shines through them if
you really try, and that's what was so tough to
get right. Most figures these days are
very stiff and solidy. Still some tweaks to
make but for the most part done,
and we hope you have as much
fun in the mud with these as we
did making them.

Can you even imagine a WHOLE ARMY of these little guys invading every cookie cupboard in your kitchen! \:D/ It sounds as if the new smaller size will make it easier to pop one or more buddies into your pocket for a ride down to the grocery store 8-[ . Something else to give the grocer-clerks reason to do a "double take", when I go shopping for goodies! :rolleyes:

i hope that the chases are like the rare-ness of the plush version (ie. the red tooth wedgehead in the pic on his bloge would be rarer than the other ones).

I think it would be cool if there were a little action figure for each (maybe not ALL of them) plush, like if there is an exclusive limited to 100 plush, there would also be an exclusive limited to 100 action figure version of them.
maybe im dreaming, but i would love that

They're not released yet. I tried to get a release date but they didn't know. I was told "soon".

Yeah I know. I think the word is towards the end of the year. I think uglycon could be the first place they are sold. I cannot wait I need them all.
