WonderCon '10: Sir Om-Nom-Nom Nomed WonderCon

Sir Om-Nom-Nom made his noming known once again at WonderCon 2010 this past weekend. It was the same deal at Comic-con last year; if you played the demo of Lost Planet 2, you were given a raffle ticket for the chance to win a most coveted Sir Om-Nom-Nom plushie. Since I won one at Comic-con I didn't feel the overwhelming need of having to win one at WonderCon. However, I did obtain a Sir Om-Nom-Nom while I was at the show. At Capcom's booth they were selling small Sir Om-Nom-Nom plastic figurines. These are the same figurines that are included with the Australian Lost Planet 2: Collector's Edition. Since we still haven't heard anything about a CE for America, I whipped out wallet and asked, "How much for that Akrid in the window?"

Okay, I didn't really say that as the Sir Om-Nom-Nom figurines were clearly labeled $6.00. I was happy that I wouldn't have to attempt to buy one of the little guys off eBay or something. I also now know why the picture of the Australian Collector's Edition is labeled "for illustrative purposes only;" The Sir Om-Nom-Nom figurine is tiny compared to what is shown on the picture. The picture makes it look like the figurine is bigger than the game case, when it is actually much, much smaller. The figurine is approximately 3.5-inches long and 1.5-inches in width and height. The box it comes in is also much smaller than what's shown in the picture. Unless Australia is actually getting a big plastic Sir Om-Nom-Nom figurine with it's LP2:CE, this is what you can expect if you're on the lookout for a nom-tastic Sir Om-Nom-Nom figurine.

I took a couple photos of how mini Sir Om-Nom-Nom compares to the regular-sized plushie and a game case. And yes, I know the name of the salamander Akrid creature is not actually Sir Om-Nom-Nom, but it has more character in it than the Gordiant name it goes by in the game.

Mini Sir Om-Nom-Nom may be mini, but it still has that go-nom-'em attitude.

This is not for illustrative purposes only; this is for actual size purposes.
