HERE back around the time when SDCC 2011 was going on... and we noticed at the Toynami x UNKL booth a familiar face being transposed onto a familiar shape! Well, it looks like all the red tape has been cleared, license approval has happened and UNKL is moving forward with their line of Spongebob Unipo's... and oh how sweet they are! Tentatively titled Spongebob & Friends Series 1, featuring Patrick, Squidward, Mr. Krabs, the Flying Dutchman, and, of course, Spongebob... as well as 5 other characters, making the total set 10 figures. This set is actually up for grabs HERE on a pre-order basis right now via Entertainment Earth. It's a fun mix-up of shapes/figures... but the only one I am not really to keen on is Patrick, he does not resemble a starfish at all, and that could only happen if the modified the shape of the Unipo... so I understand why! The release date is still up in the air, but sources are saying anywhere between now and September 2012... so sometime this year, Whoop!!!
UNKL x Spongebob... more images/info emerge!!!
