|Are you sure that's not a Halloween decoration?|
The Other World was such gold, a weird fantasy line when fantasy was all the rage thanks to He-Man and Star Wars. With packaging that looked like a heavy metal album and toys that looked like Halloween decorations mixed with just enough neat factor... The Other World was pretty great.
Figures came in a variety of ways. Solo figures with two of those little rubber weirdos. Extra weapon packs with rubber weirdos. Double figure packs with maybe one rubber weirdo. Monsters with a rubber weirdo. Big gift sets full of figures and monsters with rubber weirdos. No matter how you bought it, you were getting those little rubber weirdos and damn well like it. The orange weirdos are Jipps, basically little good guys to give your heroes support. The purple weirdos are Mogs, little jerks that work for the bad guys.
The Other World was a weird and wonderful toy line that didn't cost much. That's a recipe for sucess that doesn't come around as often as it should. The next time you're at that odd discount store picking up some random thing you need check out the toys. Sometimes there's a little rubber Halloween decoration trying to pass itself off as an action figure. How can you possibly ignore that?
