Hey there! Need some little people to liven up your toy train
layout? Tired of paying up to $5 apiece for those die-cast metal
figures? Try O’Mies™, the new collectible plastic
action figurines from O’Shop LLC. These are highly detailed,
poseable figures that are specifically designed for playing with
trains. Don’t confuse them with HO’Mies™, which
are smaller. O’Shop LLC has just announced a TCA Series
of O’Mies™, which is being manufactured exclusively
for members of the Train Collectors Association.
Start your collection today! TCA O’Mies™ are faithful
miniatures of actual train collectors. Just perfect for posing
with your brand new CSX Dash-2 diesel from Lionel LLC. Everyone
wants a Paul Wassermann O’Mie™, inspired by the current
President of the TCA. He’s in great physical shape! You
can pose him standing, sitting, or kneeling to inspect the handrails
on your new locomotive.
Next, add a Gordon Wilson O’Mie™, modeled after the
former TCA president and current chairman of the Internet Committee.
He’s not quite as flexible as the Wassermann O’Mie™,
partly due to a run-in with a Phillies action figure in 2003,
but also ‘cause he’s very fond of Maple d’O’Nut™
edible miniatures. Get him while you can! Toy trains that were
named after Gordon Wilson have sold on eBay for a hundred dollars
or more! Our Gordon Wilson O’Mie™ is a bargain at
$5.95 plus shipping.
What collection would be complete without a Bob Mintz O’Mie™,
based on the well-known accountant, Long Island RR commuter, and
online magazine editor.
These are only the beginning! Keep watching this site for future
releases in the TCA O’Mies™ series. A special York
set is scheduled for October 2004 release, including the Clem
Clement O’Mie™ with removable bullhorn; the Singing
Ron Morris O’Mie™ (batteries for sound system are
optional); and, for a limited time only, the Mike Wolf O’Mie™
with permanently attached DCS handheld.
For devotees of man’s best friend, in spring of 2005 O’Shop
LLC will offer exquisitely crafted miniature pets. What is the
train collector’s favorite dog breed? Of course, the Yor’Kie™,
which comes complete with collar, leash and bowl. Are you more
of a cat person? O’Shop LLC brings you the most famous railway
cat of all time, Ches’Sie™, with blanket and pillow
Just in time for the holidays, reserve your Chip Miller O’Mie™
with remote controlled smoke pellet tester; your Cowboy Johnny
Joe O’Mie™ with saddle and ten gallon hat; and the
piece d’ resistànce of any collection, the Barb Jones
O’Mie™ which will be paired with an MTH caboose for
the amazingly low combo price of $59.95. Don’t wait and
be disappointed; reserve these at your local O’Shop LLC
