Bearbrick and the street-culture

Known and appreciated all over the world, the Bearbrick (known also as [email protected]) are collectible toys produced by the Japanese company Medicom toy. The company was founded in Japan in 1996, and it released the first toy in 2001 as a gift to World Character Convention 12 visitors in Tokyo. Thanks to Medicom, Bearbrick revolutionized the conception of action figures from simple toy models to collectible art toys and street-culture icons.

Today, the popular toys made by Medicom, Bearbrick toys have been released in a variety of sizes and materials ranging from wood to porcelain as well as carbon fiber and plastic. 

Bearbrick toy themes and most famous collections

The Bearbrick toy represent the figure of an anthropomorphic and stylized bear, from which they take part of their name. Each Bearbrick consists of nine parts: head, torso, sides, arms, hands and legs. The difference between the Bearbrick and other collectible models lies in the different themes in which they are depicted. From the horror Bearbrick inspired by the most famous horror films, to the Bearbrick dedicated to DC Comics heroes and superheroes, to the Bearbrick dedicated to famous artists. 

Of great importance and demand are the editions made in collaboration with contemporary artists and designers such as Karl Lagerfeld and Vivienne Westwood

Among the company's most famous and iconic collaborations with contemporary artists are the Medicom Bearbrick Kaws collections, in which the international artist creates a limited edition Dissected Companion, a reworking of Kaws' iconic art toy with typical Bearbrick traits.

Another great collaboration is with artist Jean Michel Basquiat. Bearbrick wanted to pay homage to one of the most famous and well-known American graffiti artists.
