Following the release of an antibacterial BE@RBRICK in collaboration with Japanese pharmaceutical company Cleverin and design studio nendo, Medicom Toy returns with another collaborative piece. This time, fragment design joins Medicom Toy for a BE@RBRICK Mickey Mouse figure.
The new fragment design x BE@RBRICK will be released in 100%, 400% and 1000% sizes. Rather than depicting Mickey Mouse with his classic black features, the cartoon character gets a sleek makeover with iridescent gray. Unlike the Mickey Mouse figure Medicom Toy released in 2017, the collaborative piece gives one of the most recognizable Walt Disney characters a modern look, simplifying the facial features and giving the figure a sheeny finish.
As part of the Project 1/6 Plan, the BE@RBRICK Mickey Mouse will only be available to those who apply online through a lottery system. Applications take place September 7 and 8 on Medicom Toy’s website and winners will be notified of lottery results on September 12. Only people who have won will be allowed to enter the store in Japan on September 14. In-store prices range from ¥17,280 (approx. $160 USD) to ¥74,280 (approx. $695).
