REVIEW: Uglydolls – Plunko
You probably know the story behind David and Sun-Min’s Uglydoll line. If not, where have you been? Well, the duo has released a few new designs for 2008. And we are going to take a look at one of the newest Uglydolls – Plunko.
Plunko is a business man. He’s got his own car wash, his own tire store, and ideas for lots of other stores. Some of those ideas are his very own! Plunko is a good guy to know. If you know Plunko, you can say you’ve got some connections. And if you call Plunko’s phone, you may get a bad connection.
So anyway, are you sold on Plunko? Are you ready to do business? Plunko is the ultimate business partner because he only wants 100% of your love and even less of your money.
This category is really not applicable because Uglydolls aren’t packaged in anything. Each one does have a tag detailing the story behind the character…although the above story could have spoiled it for you.
Plunko is currently available in 4 different sizes: 2 Foot Tall, (24"), Regular (14”),
Little Ugly (7”) and Keychain (4”). The bright orange color is
reminiscent of those orange road cones…that bright!
Plunko has four teeth and long ears. His feet are pointed in the same
direction, and he has one arm up as well as one arm down.
Out of the new Uglydolls introduced back at NY Toy Fair in February,
Plunko wasn’t one that really stood out to me. But I’m guessing if you
saw him in a pile of Uglydolls, he would definitely draw your eye.
Maybe I hadn’t realized just how bright he was, but this is one orange
Ugly. When I say that he’s traffic cone orange, I’m not pulling your
And speaking of legs, Plunko has something we’ve not seen in an
Uglydoll before…two legs facing in the same direction. (Yep…we pick up
on these details) Also, all previous Uglys have had his or her arms
positioned in the same direction…but not Plunko!
You can pick one up at the following:
Yoyashop: $20.00 ea.(Regular) $50.00 ea.(2 foot)
Fun Factor: 9/10
Have this figure? What do you rate it?
