When I was little Unico and the Magic Island was one of my absolute favourite cartoons. Somewhere in the shuffle of growing up I actually forgot about the little guy. Then one day by happenstance I found the movie again, and instantly remembered it. For this month’s Tiny Treasure I would like to give a little love to my favourite Osamu Tezuka character, Unico.
This tiny figure is from a series of Osamu Tezuka figures released by Organic. It was love at first sight, I couldn’t believe my local comic shop was able to acquire him.
Unico has very little intricate details, but the ones he does have are painted very well. I really like the dark lines around his eyes, they make me think of Egyptian eye make-up. His expression is so cute, as he bashfully looks back over his shoulder.
Here on the back there aren’t really any flaws either. Overall this is a really great little collectible. My only real concern is his tiny tail breaking off. It is very delicate. If you are unfamiliar with Unico, and like cute things or the works of Osamu Tezuka you should definitely check out the Unico movies.
Overall Enjoyment: 10/10
