With the final season of Sponegbob Squarepants currently winding down, the influx of various collaborations and collectibles has flourished. Just last week Kyrie Irving announced a Nike Kyrie 5 inspired by the Bikini Bottom show, and just last month Nickelodeon celebrated the franchise with a range of collectible meme figurines. With such an influx, it’s only right that Medicom Toy joins in on the fun.
The Japanese toy company recently revealed a gold chrome flip of Spongebob in its latest take on the famed BE@RBRICK collectible. Arriving in 100%, 400%, and 1000% iterations, the iconic lives-in-a-pineapple-under-the-sea character gets a shiny metallic makeover, featuring his signature bucktooth smile, sponge holes, and formal Bikini Bottom wear.
You can take a look at the BE@RBRICK SpongeBob in gold chrome in the gallery above. If you’re interested in picking up either the 100% and 400% set or the 1000% figurine, head over to Medicom Toy’s CJ Mart web store where they are retailing for ¥12,000 JPY (approx. $110 USD) and ¥50,000 JPY (approx. $458 USD), respectively.
