Robotkingdom have let us know there is an update on the Unique Toys Mania King Vintage Colour Version.
The original sample is equipped with a Red Light Laser Pointer.
Robotkingdom have carried out a test on the laser pointer, which can range for over 40 meters in indoor light condition, this implies the laser pointer is possibly a Class II or Class III laser pointer.
In many countries, import of laser pointer is strictly regulated/prohibited by law.
Due to these regulations and safety issues, Robotkingdom have requested Unique Toys to replace the Laser Pointer by LED, which will delay our shipment arrival for around 2 weeks.
