Updated Commission Information

Unique Commission Requests

Andy is able to complete a varying amount of Unique commissions per month, depending on the tier of the Unique (explanation to follow). All Unique commissions will be handled one-at-a-time. Hangups in moving forward with your unique (i.e. lack of details, missing payment, etc.) may lead to other Uniques being worked on before yours.

  • Read and understand Andy’s Artwork Guidelines and Brief Questions.
  • Have all information for your Unique, including any and all details, ready to go.
  • Use the Commission Unique button below.

Communication, Payment, and Proofs

After the details of your Unique have been received, the Unique will be added to a running list. You will receive an email response from staff when we are ready to begin working on your Unique, or if any details need to be clarified/worked out before given to Andy. After all details are in order, the expected price tier of your Unique will be quoted and payment due-date will be given (Payment is due before Andy begins working on your Unique). Two proof revisions are allowed. In order to limit back-and-forth communication, and keep Andy’s workload manageable, please make sure that any and all details that need to be changed are mentioned after the first proof is received.

Receiving Your Unique!

After the Unique has been completed, you will have access to it through the website. After logging in, navigate to your profile. On your profile’s main page, there is an option to Gift Unique. Please note that the Unique will gift out in numerical order, beginning with #1. You will not be able to skip ahead numbers, so if you’re looking to gift a specific number to someone, all previous numbers must be gifted first.

Unique Payment Tiers

Due to the varying levels of complexity between Uniques, pricing will adhere to the following:

Additional Information

  • Animation is not available for new items.
  • If you are interested in making your Unique available through Uncanny Uniques/foraging, blocked from the market, mix with your other Uniques, etc. please have that information available in your request (There is no premium for these features).
  • We do charge extra for variants, which is on a case-by-case basis.
  • Tier 3 pricing is a base cost. Depending on how much detail is required, Andy may add premiums.
  • Uniques that are on accounts that are closed get returned to you, although there can sometimes be a delay in these being returned.
  • WallaBee characters are not allowed in Player Uniques. However, if your design involves the reference to a character, we can work with you through the details.

We look forward to allowing all players the ability to commission their own Unique in a timely manner. If you have previously emailed or messaged staff about Uniques, please take a moment to resubmit the information as outlined above, as all requests need to go through the Commission Unique button below. Have fun!

Unique Spotlight – Sunshine Love

Love doesn’t make the world go round. Love is what makes the ride worthwhile. — Franklin P. Jones

Owner: RhondaPonda

How To Get: It is available for 1997’s and missing TD’s where the 1997 is mixed or recycled to the great unknown.

Meaning: The kittens represent my twin daughters, who while they are so different, they both are amazing people who truly make this ride worthwhile.

Which number Unique is this for you? This was my second Unique.

Unique Spotlight – Dark Side On The Wall

Remember: All in all you’re just another brick in the wall. And there is no dark side on the moon really. Matter of fact it’s all dark.

Owner: Wyando

How To Get: Uncanny Uniques Store

Meaning: It mostly acted as a “thank you” unique for the help when I started this incredible game almost 3 years ago. But even after all those years, this unique still seems to be full of surprises…

Which number Unique is this for you? This is my first Unique.

Closing Thoughts: I “just” wanted my first unique to have a personal touch (“Wy”) and combined it with two of my favourite albums “The Wall” and “Dark Side on the Moon”. Listen to these, best with headphones, while figuring out how to build a wall…

Unique Spotlight – Indigo

A dark soul, lost and afraid, stumbles upon the Tavern of the Damned.
There she finds her salvation in a new family, finds parts of herself she could only dream and learns love is for eternity

Owner: indigo

How To Get: It is in the Uncanny Uniques store. I have a limited number of TDs which I’ll trade for a 1985 card. A 16 card if it is a Unique. Or an upgrade to any of my none 1985 saved cards.

Meaning: I was completely obsessed with WallaBee, and I wanted something that I could exchange for other Player Uniques. I liked the idea of something that I had ‘invented’ being part of the game.

Which number Unique is this for you? This is my first Unique.

Closing Thoughts: This is a representation of my first online role player character who at one point felt like a bit part of my personal story and had a lot of meaning. Indigo was/is quite special to me and I still use her full name as a username for some websites/games. She represents a time of exploration, self-discovery and transformation.

Unique Spotlight – Clover

“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose.” ~Dr. Seuss

Owner: Trent

How To Get: The item was just added into the store to share with everyone 🙂

Meaning: It was commissioned to gift out to all the great WallaFriends I made in the many years of playing this game.

Which number Unique is this for you? It was my 2nd Unique. When I commissioned my first one, I had no plans to do another, but Andy really gets you hooked.

Closing Thoughts: I am not as active as I once was. By placing it into the store, I am able to put my Unique out there so all players can add it to their collections. I especially hope that the clover finds all the new players that I haven’t had the chance to interact with yet.

Unique Spotlight – Tarantino

Every dog has his day.

Owner: Wyando

How To Get: Not directly, as I have different goals for each set. I will use this Unique to support trading for my different set goals.

Meaning: This Unique is a homage to (one of) my favourite filmmakers.

Which number Unique is this for you? This is my third Unique.

Closing Thoughts: Some eavesdropping (only a few possible regarding their french 😉)
Mr. Blonde: Guess what, I think I’m parked in the red-zone!
Mr. Blue: I like her early stuff. You know, ‘Lucky Star’, ‘Borderline’ – but once she got into her ‘Papa Don’t Preach’ phase, I don’t know, I tuned out.
Mr. Brown: Hey, you guys are making me lose my… train of thought here. I was saying something, what was it?
Mr. White: What, did you forget your french fries, to go with the soda?
Mr. Pink: I mean everbody panics, everybody, things get tense, it’s human nature to panic, I don’t care what you name it you just can’t help it.
Mr. Orange: No it wasn’t Pam Grier. Pam Grier was the other one. Pam Grier did the film. Christie Love was like Pam Grier TV Show without Pam Grier.

After all, a bloody nice start to his career as filmmaker. Well done, Mr Tarantino!

Unique Spotlight – Sheldon

Not all those who wander are lost. Eureka! Let’s go see what we can find.

Owner: Cali49

How To Get: Sheldon is free for the asking, to those who do not have one.

Meaning: Sheldon was created as an extension to the Gold Rush set from last year. That set highlighted Sheldon’s journey from New York to the gold fields of California in 1849. After surviving train bandits, buffalo stampedes, a scare from a huge grizzly bear and claim jumpers, he finally made his fortune, with the help of his new friend, Sierra the Grizzly Bear. He definitely deserved a Unique! The history of the California Gold Rush is a story that fascinates me, and Sheldon represents all those courageous gold-seekers who gave up everything to head to California to search for gold. Keep your eyes open, Sheldon’s story isn’t over.

Which number Unique is this for you? Sheldon was my first Unique.

Closing Thoughts: I love Uniques. They add such a personal touch to WallaBee, as most have a personal meaning and story behind them. Collecting them and creating them is my favorite aspect of the game.

Unique Spotlight – Kilo

Kilo (from Greek χίλιοι), prefix denoting 1000 in the metric system… but whatevs, enough with the science. 1000 is a pretty darn cool number, okay?

Owner: Staffan

How To Get: It’s been retired, so eh, it’s a little tricky.

Meaning: Kilo is the second item in my mini-series of binary bees. This time I chose to focus on my main number, #1000. It was mainly used to trade for some of my last missing binary set items, of which none was actually a #1000. Very ironic.

Which number Unique is this for you? 2 out of 2 (so far at least)

Closing Thoughts: Ouch, that poor little bug. Will he survive the pressure? Only time will tell.

Unique Spotlight – Dot.COM aka “Dottie”

My Red Heeler vanished from our fenced yard in 2011. See www.bringdottiehome.com for details.

Owner: fulfilled71

How To Get: Players can acquire it by providing three palindrome upgrades for non palindrome set cards. From time to time it will appear in the market when I need honeycombs.

Meaning: This Unique is in remembrance of a friend’s lost dog who never returned home – it’s like a wanted poster.

Which number Unique is this for you? This is my only Unique.

Unique Spotlight – Miss P

You, my gorgeous girl, can be ANYTHING you want to be. Even if that’s a fairy ballerina 💕

Owner: mrsbatch

How To Get: Just ask (with manners!)

Meaning: It’s based on a video of my eldest daughter, who at the age of 2 wanted to be a fairy ballerina. I want my girls to know they can be anything they want too be when they grow up! There is no limits!!!

Which number Unique is this for you? This is my first Unique.
