SENSE and Bearbrick are no strangers to working together. The Medicom Toy-owned company have produced mouse mats and mini-sized Bearbrick phone straps as free gifts for the popular Japanese fashion magazine before. To help celebrate the new year they have decided to go that one step further and package a free 100% mastermind JAPAN x A Bathing Ape Bearbrick model with the February 2012 issue. Featuring a matte black base, both brand logos appear printed in gold on the front and back of the figure. The magazine is scheduled to hit the shelves in Japan on January 10 so keep and eye out for it in import and specialist book stores outside of Japan soon after.
