Unkl SUG vs. DC

Post by buggzero » Sun Jan 25, 2009 5:15 am

Saw this a while back, but didn't post it. Seems like a cool collaboration, but the shoes are... a little akward

I emailed them. They said they would be available at 9pm EST on the 23rd.... which was yesterday. They said they would be available on the website. I'm assuming they just haven't gotten around to posting them yet. Probably the beginning of this next week.

The pics are deceiving...I thought their were two versions as well a black and green and an all white, but there is only one...it is the white with GID, just like the shoes. Check out my SITE, I went down yesterday and picked up a SUG, another awesome figure!

The Figure was $160, and I don't know if there were a bunch or not, the best thing I could tell you to do is just call the store...super nice guys!

What, did it cost UNKL $60 to make the oversize ice cream sandwich?? I was totally going to pick this up, but not for $160.

does the SUG come with the giant ice cream sandwich or was that just an instore display?

and seriously, what's up with the $160 price tag? that seems really high

In Store Display...and the $160 was probably the DC markup...really cool version of this figure though!

there's no way I'm paying that much... hopefully I can find one after the price drops...

I saw another color way... maybe it's being released at a later time...?

Actually that is the same one...like I said there is only one color and it is the white...the pictures are taken darker to show the glow so it appears to be a gray/black SUG, but in all reality...it is just the white one with the lights dimmed!

Agreed. It's a really nice figure and package, but the price is a bit hard to swallow for a relatively large run (450?).

I love the figure, but im saving for other things. Can't spend the $160 these days, unless its very useful. Still love UNKL tho.

I'm actually glad it's white b/c I was ready to drop the $$ for what I thought was black and green (my favorite colorway).
