OMFG Series 4 consists of five figures including:

1. Fossil Freak designed by Michael Stearns and sculpted by George Gaspar
2. Wooly Wisp designed and sculpted by Billy Parker
3. Bullseye designed by (Raging Nerdgasm) Tom Khayos and Ana Bruja-Khayos and sculpted by George Gaspar
4. Tree Witched designed by MudMarox and sculpted by GormTransMonster
5. The Siren designed by Corwin Webb and sculpted by George Gaspar

Remember...this is not a pre-order. There are many instances of crowd funded projects that have been funded never making good on their promised goods. So back with caution.

What’s new from Furry Feline Creatives

poopplushset_original

Furry Feline Creatives has announced the NEW Pooplets Plush. (I'm assuming these are feline pooplets) The Pooplets plush, a set of 2, includes the classic brown and the golden poop (rub it for good luck). Each one measures at 5 inches in length by 5.5 inches in height. You can pick up the set for $29.99.

And there's also this...

Five years of Furry Feline Creatives and we continue to challenge ourselves with original art, characters, stories, ideas and concepts. As you may already know, we started making handmade plush that brought the characters into the spotlight. We have since then blossomed into a lifestyle brand through the years having a wide variety of merchandise such as apparel, designer bags, pins, prints, glassware, books and other novelties that caters to people of all ages.

We have been outpaced by our handmade plush selling faster than we can make them, so we have begun outsourcing them. As we begin this transition, all of the handmade plush will be very limited and will be available via "Made to Order" and will increase in pricing. This month is the last chance to score discounted pricing of our current handmade plush.
