Los Angeles Angels’ Shohei Ohtani Gets An OYO Sports Minifigure

If you’re no stranger to LEGO-compatible collectible minifigures, then it’s most likely that you have come across the name and brand, OYO Sports. Similar to LEGO CMFs, OYO Sports, as the name suggests, produces LEGO compatible minifigs that showcases the most famous names in sports. The appeal behind the OYO brand lies in their extensive and exclusive tie-ups with major sports leagues such as the Major League Baseball. And one particular name that has gradually risen to the top of the ranks to earn his own commemorative OYO minifigure is Los Angeles Angels’ Japanese superstar, Shohei Ohtani. Though recent news about his elbow injury has left many fans of the sport in a state of disbelief, we sincerely hope that he will recover soon as fans will surely wait for his return to the ball field.
