Unkle - Secret Pattern Be@rbrick Series 6
The Unkle - Secret Pattern Be@rbrick Series 6 was the first Unkle X Bearbrick collaboration, and was released in May 2003.
The figure is clear, with a camouflage pattern, and a silver circular feature on the front.
The Unkle Bearbrick was not advertised along with the rest of the series released at the time, and so is known as a 'Secret' design. Because Bearbricks are sold in a closed box, known as a 'blind box', you don't know which design you will receive until you have opened it. You have a 1/192 chance of recieving the Unkle design.
