This cute yet sinister warrior is three times the size of the company’s usual HazMaPo, and has bold orange hues and metallic accents. “Po” means “four legs,” a feature that contributes to the creature’s unique qualities. “Pretty much everything about UNKL is different from the rest of the toy market — even the rest of the urban vinyl toy market. Everything that we do at UNKL is rooted in high-quality design. … And, instead of just being a cool figure to sit on your shelf, HazMaPo has a story behind it: The HazMaPos are a united group of mini, Cold War-era assassins,” Leah Preston of UNKL told TDmonthly.
