Following the release of the “Brave Blossoms” BE@RBRICK referencing Japan’s National Rugby Team, Medicom Toy has returned with its latest BE@RBRICK, emblazoned with motifs taken from Vincent van Gogh‘s still life series Sunflowers.

Dubbed “Van Gogh Museum,” the figures come in sizes of 100%, 400% and 1000% and see a glossy finish over a bevy of details. Burnished hazel tones complement the calm hues of the yellow sunflower petals repeated all throughout the piece, covering every surface of the figures from the tips of their ears to the bottom of their feet. “Vincent” is scrawled diagonally on the back of the BE@RBRICKs in a typeface that loosely mimics Van Gogh’s iconic signature. Finishing off the pieces, the bottom right leg is stamped with “Van Gogh Museum,” while the left is graced with the official trademark of the artwork.

The Medicom Toy BE@RBRICK “Van Gogh Museum” is currently available at cjmart.jp for $123 USD, for the 100% & 400% set and $492 USD for 1000%.

Elsewhere, IKEA has changed its brand typeface so that it can be displayed in 800 different languages.
