Unipo_s3_s4_email

UNKL Brand has announced that their 2" tall UniPo figures (Series 3 and 4) are now available.   There are also a limited number of 6"-ers available through their webstore. 

What’s The World Got In Store

Wilcounkl

Well...it might be a little early to be looking ahead to San Diego Comic Con...but UNKL has released an image of one of their exclusive sets.  Being a fan of Jeff Tweedy's work since he led Uncle Tupelo, it's great to hear that he is a fan of designer toys.  Apparently, he likes himself some UNKL products.  They discussed doing a set of 6 figures representing Wilco's band members...and voila!  The 2" tall UniPo figures will be packaged as a six pack set.

You could get 30 seconds of fame...plus $500 for filming your most creative JunPo movie.  UNKL is asking for you to mail in a DVD explaining the "JunPo way".  The first place winner will get a nice paycheck, while the top 3 will receive a special showing on their website.

12″ Kow Yokoyama HazMaPo

If you're at NY Comic con this weekend, you'll want to check out UNKL's newest figure...available at the Toy Tokyo booth.  It's the only shot you have of picking up Kow Yokoyama's 12" tall HazMaPo.  There are only 250 of these green and silver figures available, so they will most likely sell out at the show.

HazMaPo: UNKL and Kow Yokoyama

Kowkamo

UNKL has teamed up with Kow Yokoyama, whose artwork inspired the amazing HazMaPo figure above.  "With some silhouettes of Kow’s  Maschinen Krieger figures and vessels we created a “Kamo” to map onto our core character – the HazMaPo." At 12" in height, this giant figure will first be available at Toy Tokyo's New York Comic Con Booth...that's February 23rd

You have a few months to get set for a little taste of Halloween.  This Spring, UNKL will be releasing the latest series of mischevious four 2" tall UniPo figures.  Series 4 is entitled Fright Night (for obvious reasons). At this rate...UNKL might release 20 series in 2007.
