*REVIEW* Bitbot Jinny 'Bigtop' by Jon Burgerman

As part of our ongoing LIVE video review series, we had the opportunity to crack open the new Bitbots figure... which is called Jinny "Bigtop" an was doodled on designed by Jon Burgerman! The new 6" Jinny was released on August 1st, 2011 and is limted to only 500 pieces worldwide. Jon Burgerman describes Jinny Bigtop as: "Human brains get weighed down with all the things they're trying not to think and obsess about; Did I leave the gas on? Will I have enough money to pay the rent and buy LA Noir this weekend? What will happen if the Sun explodes? Why are Curly Wurlys getting smaller? Sometimes you have to sip your over priced, unethically sourced mochafrappacapoeirachino and smile through it all. Give up the anxiety and take your Bigtop to the circus, they have clowns and dancing bears."

I really enjoyed the design of the character that Jon created, but the jury is still out on shape of this figure... simply put, it's really unique! That being said this is the first design that I really think works on this figure, the loose nature of Jon's art works perfect! Please take a few minutes and watch the above video so you can get a feel for what this figure is all about... and if it tickles your fancy head on over to the Bitbot's site HERE to snag this up. While you are there you can grab some Series Zero 3" Jinny's as well... we touched on them in the video too! Oh and keep yours eyes out for a giveaway soon as we are going to be giving all that you see in this review away to one luck SS.com reader!
