Unique Toys Mania King Vintage Colour Version Laser Pointer Update and Delays

Dear customers,

Here is an announcement about 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.
Please be noted that the original laser pointer installed on Mania King will cause temporary or permanent damage to retina especially when pointing to human eyes.
Please understand the modification and delay is done in order to protect customers from any health hazard and legal issue when purchasing this item.
Recently, some other shops might receive their shipment with laser pointer. Please take safety precautions before purchasing any of these items.

In below we have some examples of different regulations from several different countries

According to USA Federal Law:
The standard specifies performance requirements according to the Class of the
laser product and the accessible laser radiation. Note that, where the standard
requires a particular performance feature, the feature must be readily
identifiable as such on the product. Failure to properly identify required
features may lead to difficulties in determining product compliance.
The applicability of many requirements depends on whether the product is a laser
or a laser system [1040.10(b)(19),(23)].
A protective housing [1040.10(f)(1)] is required for all laser products. The
protective housing must prevent human access to laser radiation in excess of the
limits of Class I (and collateral radiation in excess of the collateral

In April 2008, citing a series of coordinated attacks on passenger jets in Sydney, the Australian government announced that it would restrict the sale and importation of certain laser items. The government had yet to determine which classes of laser pointers to ban.[36] After some debate, the government voted to ban importation of lasers that emit a beam stronger than 1 mW, effective from July 1, 2008. Those whose professions require the use of a laser can apply for an exemption.[37] In Victoria and the Australian Capital Territory a laser pointer with an accessible emission limit greater than 50 mW is classified as a prohibited weapon and any sale of such items must be recorded.[38][39] In Western Australia, regulatory changes have classified laser pointers as controlled weapons and demonstration of a lawful reason for possession is required.[40] The WA state government has also banned as of 2000 the manufacture, sale and possession of laser pointers higher than class 2.[41] In New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory the product safety standard for laser pointers prescribes that they must be a Class 1 or a Class 2 laser product.[42][43] In February 2009 South African cricketer Wayne Parnell had a laser pointer directed at his eyes when attempting to take a catch, which he dropped. He denied that it was a reason for dropping the ball, but despite this the MCG decided to keep an eye out for the laser pointers. The laser pointer ban only applies to hand-held battery-powered laser devices and not laser modules.

New regulations controlling the importation and sale of laser pointers (portable, battery powered) have been established in Canada in 2011 and are governed by Health Canada using the Consumer Protection Act for the prohibition of sale of Class 3B (IEC) or higher power lasers to "consumers" as defined in the Consumer Protection Act . Canadian federal regulation follows FDA (US Food & Drug Administration) CDRH, and IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) hazard classification methods where manufacturers comply with the Radiation Emitting Devices Act. As of July 2011 three people had been charged under the federal Aeronautics Act, which carries a maximum penalty of $100,000 and five years in prison, for attempting to dazzle a pilot with a laser. Other charges that could be laid include mischief and assault.

Before 1998 Class 3A lasers were allowed. In 1998 it became illegal to trade Class 2 laser pointers that are "gadgets" (e.g. ball pens, key chains, business gifts, devices that will end up in children's possession, etc.). It is still allowed to trade Class 2 (< 1 mW) laser pointers proper, but they have to meet requirements regarding warnings and instructions for safe use in the manual. Trading of Class 3 and higher laser pointers is not allowed.

The use of pointers with output power > 5 mW is regulated in public areas and school yards.[48] From the 1st of January 2014 it is necessary to have a special permit in order to own a laser pointer with a classification of 3R, 3B or 4, i.e. over 1 mW.[49]

United Kingdom
UK and most of Europe are now harmonized on Class 2 (<1 mW) for General presentation use laser pointers or laser pens. Anything above 1 mW is illegal for sale in the UK (import is unrestricted). Health and Safety regulation insists on use of Class 2 anywhere the public can come in contact with indoor laser light, and the DTI have urged Trading Standards authorities to use their existing powers under the General Product Safety Regulations 2005 to remove lasers above class 2 from the general market.
In 2014, a Flintshire 22-year-old was convicted of recklessly endangering the lives of a police search helicopter crew through the use of such a device, and awarded a five month suspended sentence.
