Tinpo just keeps getting bigger...literally! The folks at UNKL Labs decided to make slight modifications to their prized gerbil DNA and this was the result: Big ol’ tinpos!
At 6" in height, these tinpo figures are 300% the size of the normal tinpo you might just have sitting on your shelf. They won't be released until December 1st (less than a week away) and would make great stocking stuffers depending on how large your stockings are. It appears that UNKL is going big with a number of their lines...gotta like that!
UNKL Brand has launched the 2nd line of their uber-popular UniPo series. Series 2 includes 4 figures that are 2" in height (the same as series numero uno) and run about $8 a piece. Oh! Plus UNKL has released a 6" UniPo figure (300% the normal size). The larger figure is limited to only 100 pieces, priced at $39.99 and has a slightly different color scheme. (Thanks to Jeff Bell for pointing that out!)
Toy2R had a great display at this past weekend's Hong Kong Toyexpo 2006. Just check out the photos! A number of new projects look to be in the plans for the upcoming year.
