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."
If you buy a pack containing a "Full Set" ($55) you're guaranteed one of each sculpt with no doubles. Each of the 6 bits is also a different color, but as the sculpt/color combo is random, every set is different! This is also ensured by the two randomly colored Bytes that come with their little Bit buddies. In total, you're getting 8 figures, all bagged and header carded.
Light / Dark 3 Packs
There are are 2 options when it comes to 3 packs ($22.50). The Light Pack consists of the lighter Hues, the Dark Pack consists of the darker Hues. Pretty simple really. There are 3 Bits per pack and the sculpts are random, but you're guaranteed the 3 colors shown!
