Earlier this week, we mentioned that Medicom Be@rbrick was doing a collaboration with The Avengers. We have now seen that Medicom Be@rbrick has also done a collaboration with Marvel. Check out this new Happy Kuji series.
The Happy Kuji is brand new shopping experience in the form of a lucky draw that is available only in Japan. It is a simple system, where the customer is able to buy a lucky draw ticket, kuji in Japanese, and they are guaranteed to win something. The good news is, there are no losers to the Happy Kuji system, and everyone is bound to walk away with something. MEDICOM TOY and Marvel are teaming up to participate in the Happy Kuji with their exclusive BE@RBRICK figures as several box sets. In total there are 100 units of the toys available from 100% to the 400% Spider-Man BE@RBRICK. There is even a prize for the last draw, which is the metallic Black Spider-Man BE@RBRICK. Each draw is only 500 yen, and Happy Kuji is available at participating Family Mart convenience stores and Tsutaya bookshop Japan-wide.
Calling all Be@rbrick/Avengers fans! Medicom Toy and The Avengers franchise have collaborated for a Be@rbricks Avengers Assemble Set, which includes 100% version of the Hulk, Thor, Iron Man, and Captain American. They will be released on June 20, 2012.
In opening the new store inside the Skytree Town Solamachi shopping complex in Tokyo, boutique toy brand MEDICOM TOY have looked to their roots for inspiration. Dubbed the Japan Series, or Wa Series in Japanese, these BE@RBRICKS are a modern reinterpretation of the traditional characters and figures from Japanese culture. Perhaps it is their take on a unique, yet modern souvenir for international guests who visit the newly built Skytree tower. The Manekineko BE@RBRICK we reported on earlier is also part of this collection, and it is accompanied by Shishimai (Lion Dance), Kabuki, Buriki Kingyo (Toy Goldfish), and Daruma. Both the Shishimai and Buriki Kingyo figures will be on offer in 100% and 400% sizes, while the Kabuki BE@RBRICK is only available in 100% size, and Daruma comes in 1000% size. All of the toys will be available at the newly opened MEDICOM TOY store from Tuesday, May 22.
