UNKL, the successful designer vinyl toy line known for characters such as UniPo, HazMaPo and SUG, has announced merchandising deals with Toynami and Fifth Sun for toy and sportswear products. The deals, which allow UNKL to expand into new categories and offer wider specialty distribution, were announced today by UNKL co-founder, Jason Bacon, and J.J. Ahearn, Managing Director, Licensing Street, the exclusive worldwide licensing agent for UNKL.
With the deal, Toynami becomes master toy licensee for UNKL. It will debut three new lines of toys at San Diego Comic Con on July 22-25 with characters that include Gastro-Normous, the introductory character in the Dad Gummit Blobs line, which will be exclusively available for sale at Comic-Con in limited edition quantities (see our exclusives list HERE); SearchR, a new entry in UNKL's SUG line; and Viking, the premier release in the new Dreamers line.
Fifth Sun, which launched an apparel line at MAGIC in February, will be creating t-shirts and hoodies featuring characters from the UNKL universe.
"UNKL is really looking forward to working with such established partners as Toynami and Fifth Sun. The combination of their expertise and our combined creativity will create some amazing new products that continue to expand on UNKL as we know it, but more importantly, these partnerships will take the brand to some exciting new places," said Jason Bacon.
UNKL can be found at the Toynami booth, #3229, at San Diego Comic-Con, July 22-25.
