The first series of David and Sun Min's Uglydolls figures was a roaring success but IMO Series 2 knocks it out of the park. The reason? well there seems to be a big variety of colours so for completists these will look great all sitting together on the shelf.
But the main reason is simple: Uglydog!!! This critter has made an appearance before way back when as a larger piece by Critterbox from the OG Uglydoll vinyl range. However it was hugely limited and the full production run never materialised. So for us Ugly fans the chance to get two Uglydogs is very welcome.
It also seems like there's a bit more variety this time around with the Dogs, Uglyworm and Poe with his long arms . The new packaging is also a nice change and as before an entire case gets you all the figures...no uber chase figs or colourways. These will be hitting stores in March so keep an eye out.
