Uglydoll Action Figures on the way

I had to open with a photo from Uglyblog. Just look at them. They are the upcoming Uglydoll Action Figures. They are more than mere vinyl. They move at the waist. So cool. And the colors are extraordinary, as are their perfect little shapes. I imagine their size will fit perfectly into my hand. In the vinyl action figures world, these will be superstars.

So far it looks like price will be between 8.00 and 9.00. They will be available separately, and in a complete set of one each. I'm going for the complete set myself, as soon as they are available. My experience with getting just one piece, and trying to pick up the rest of a set as times goes by has always left me paying higher prices, and sweating it out on ebay auctions. So with the pre-release info in hand, I know it is time to save up and be ready.

There is something to be said for purchasing one at a time. It stretches out the Ugly pleasure over a series of months. You debate, then choose the next member of the clan. You order, you wait, the packges is in the mailbox. Everyone runs to the dining table for the grand arrival of the newest Ugly. A brief moment of danger as too many cutting tools come flying, but soon the package is ripped away. Ah. Bliss.

With the complete set, it's like a sonic wave of enjoyment. The Fun Meteor doesn't break up and fall to earth in pieces, but hits our dining table full throttle and in one piece. Bam. They're all there standing before us. No doubt we'll all compare, appreciate, evaluate, bond, and discuss the individual virtues of each piece. We'll pick favorites, change our minds. The camera will come out and we'll pose them around the house, the property, and all around town. After all, they are posable action figures.

Receiving them is a tasty moment, but anticipation tastes pretty sweet itself.

Keep watching for their release on the Uglydolls web store and grab yourself a new buddy, pronto. You won't be sorry.

From info I've gleaned here and there, they will be out in early 2009 to the general public. However, I am no Uglydoll official, just a big fan, so the date is my guess.
