Rookie OYOs get the First Edition treatment! New Players added!

The first time we produce a collegiate or pro-version of a minifigure for a player, that first print run will be specially handled.

This “First Edition” minifigure will be sequentially numbered, to the entire first production run made for that player. This will be only for the first print of that player, on their rookie minifigure. The numbering will depend on the size of the demand anticipated which sets the first production run, and will vary between the players.  These will be shipped out to the early orders, to both retailers and consumers, at random. These are not offered independently and we don’t guarantee orders will receive a first edition minifigure- it should be considered a nice bonus for those who are lucky enough to get one.

Subsequent print runs will be available without numbering like traditional OYO minifigures.

Our “first” First Edition minifigure was made of the Angels Shohei Ohtani, and his first Pitcher and DH minifigure – each numbered to 250 of each.

 

We have issued the following MLB players with First Edition numbered editions:

Angels – Shohei Ohtani

Astros – Aledmys Diaz – will be released when he makes the roster

Blue Jays – Vladimir Guerrero Jr when he makes the roster

Braves -Ronald Acuna

Brewers – Josh Hader

Cardinals  -Jose Martinez

Cubs – David Bote

Diamondbacks – Archie Bradley

Dodgers – Walker Buehler

Giants – Steven Duggar

Mariners – Yusei Kikuchi available now, Kyle Lewis and Justus Sheffield, when they make the roster

Marlins – Brian Anderson, Lewis Brinson

Nationals – Juan Soto

Padres – Fernando Tatis Jr when he makes the roster

Rays- Austin Meadows, Joey Wendle,  plus Nathaniel Lowe when he makes the roster

Reds – Jose Peraza, and Jesse Winker

Rockies – Kyle Freeland and German Marquez

Royals – Brett Phillips, Hunter Dozier and Ryan O’Hearn

Twins  -Eddie Rosario, Jorge Polanco  plus Brent Rooker when he makes the roster

White Sox  -Michael Kopech, Tim Anderson, plus Eloy Jimenez when he makes the roster

NHL- 2 special NHL players were made as First Edition players exclusively for the Arena this year:

Panthers Aleksander Barkov Jr, and Vincent Trochek

 

Our Master Checklists will be updated with the numbering of these as they release.

      Hi Jeffrey,

      Thanks for asking. We don’t solicit these. It is simply the first run we make of a new player, so the fans of that player who order early will be the ones to get First Edition OYO minifigures. An unadvertised reward, if you will.

      Occasionally, we do see collectors and retailers who have rec’d them in their pre-orders, or early orders, offer them up for sale on websites. You can google search OYO First Edition or check Ebay.

      Thanks for asking!
