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.

Unique Spotlight – Wallatat

Word on the street is that you have to get a real WallaBee Tattoo if you want to earn this Unique. Don’t worry… it’ll only sting a bit!

Owner: JenBee997

How To Get: Wallatats are free for all! Just send JenBee997 an in-game message to request one! Despite the item description I promise it will be pain-free!

Meaning: Tattoos have continually been a big part of my life and my family’s life over the years. I’ve always been fascinated by the striking beauty of body art. So naturally I knew I wanted to create a tattoo Unique, although I wasn’t quite sure what kind of tattoo I wanted. But then Andrew Cameron came to the rescue! When I first saw this beautiful tattoo artwork he had created I was over the moon! What an amazing way to honor my two favorite things: WallaBee & Tats!

Which number Unique is this for you? This was my very first Unique and is so special to me. I have been an avid WallaBee player since 2015 and was super excited when Unique commissions were re-opened in 2016 which lead to the creation of the Wallatat. I have special plans for another Unique in 2018 so keep your eyes peeled!

Closing Thoughts: Players often ask me if I have a real WallaBee tattoo. I’ve gotten about 20 tattoos during my life so far and I love every single one of them! But my favorite is my foraging bee tattoo! Unfortunately when you tap it no honeycombs come out!
