Any news on the Classic Koningu? I haven't heard from Mikko since June...
I think it was supposed to be mid Aug.
Mikko doesn't fail us but things do seem to fall behind in production here and there.
I'd give it a few more weeks.
How about the Vattensnok Agent Orm ? That was in March & mine hasn't arrived + no shipping email?... Thanks for any information..
Some have gone out. Do you have a combined order? If yes than that's the hold up.
I am in the same situation as you. I've send him 3 mails and no answer.
Ummikko Instagram less than 14 hours ago posted the following message.
monkey_3000 - I've been off my game lately when it comes to getting stuff out! The Classic Konigu will go out during next week and the Midsummer Madness Koningus will go out after that. If you're waiting for both I'll combine shipping and refund you for the double shipping.
I'm really sorry for the delay!
Slowly getting back on track!
Thanks @chimply.kaiju I'm reassured.
Missed the drop but im not sad. Had things to do before i work today anyways. Anyone manage to pick the new one? The glitter looks super cool!
Swing and a miss here. That orange sparkle was hot.
Im really hoping that at least 2 more drops happen before next year. Still happy i picked up the 2 new Agent drops though!
No luck here ... they were gone in a glittery-orange flash !
Hoping for more chances this year & congrats to any who scored
Happy to have been able to snag one of these guys. This is imo one of the best color ways. And I have a nice lil orange glitter shelf he's gonna feel right at home on.
This was a great weekend for Koningus...I managed to grab the lulubell sour plums & the orange glitter.
The glitter orange has to be my favourite one so far. Might wait to see if they do green or blue.
Sour Plum release:
Damn that was a stealth mode release... didn't even hear about it
I saw it, didn't like the colorway, so I passed. But damn that orange!!!!
I had to sit out the glitter drop but was very happy to have traded for these guys recently (since I had to sit their releases out as well):
This sculpt is really great in-hand, and quite a bit larger than Koningu. Ummikko has been building a strong brand over the last few years wiith great sculpts and paints -- I'm always excited to see what's next.
Jason, that first one you posted is my favorite version released so far. Ummikko makes some pretty fun toys! I got an intimate look at the Koningu during my stay in Tokyo, and I've seen a couple versions in hand at Lulu. The size and feel of Agent Orm is all around great, and the blasters in the left hand snake's mouth is just awesome. I think I vaguely remember seein' someone tryin' to "snitch" to another artist that had just released a snake toy of their own when Orm was revealed, but I have always assumed this was a take on Snakecobran. Either way, Ummikko's been showin' off some sculpts on his page as of late, so I hope to see much more from him!
Agent Orm is one of those toys you fall more in love with once in hand.
I just put two Koningu in my trade bait if anyone has some Itokin Park to let go of.
Slime-Time Koningu online sales today sold in a flash.
I hate using my phone to make online orders and fill out address forms but these dropped when I was on the bus this morning on the way to work.. my thumbs got a good workout during the checkout process!
Fuck! 30 of them oversold!
