My birthday was almost a month ago now, but I've had a lot to post about so the recap of these little dudes I got is only just getting up now. So sue me!
Anyways, I always like collecting little oddball figures for my collection whenever possible. Like Corinthian Headliners...those things are amazing. Or bobbleheads. Well I was pretty excited when I realized that a few guys I collect are available in Oyo form, which is sort of like Lego but also sort of not. I'd never seen any in person, so it was cool checking these things out, and I'll show you guys some pics!
The two Oyos I got for my birthday are one for a PC (Chris Colabello) and one that goes with my IceCats stuff (Bryce Salvador). I was surprised that either of these guys merited an Oyo, but I was stunned that Salvador had one at all, so that's super cool. Here are the backs of the boxes, highlighting what you get with each figure, including "facial likeness!"
Here's what it looks like once you slide the box part off:
And here's what Bryce looks like all put together. To give a place to take a picture I stacked him on a few VHS and put a white boxed VHS in the background.
Most of you are probably more interested in the baseball ones, so here's Chris Colabello in front of underrated gem I Heart Huckabees.
So with the figures all out of their packages and ready to rock, I had to decide where to put them. I put Salvador's OYO on my Ice Cat shelf, which sits above my desk and holds a bunch of team autos and Ice Cat pucks:
And then Colabello gets to go on one of the shelves on the opposite wall, surrounded by a few Fred McGriffs, Mad Dog, and some excellent cardboard pieces:
