Off the heels of Medicom Toy‘s Hello Kitty BE@RBRICK, the Japanese toy manufacturers are back, celebrating the third anniversary of its Medicom Toy Plus store in Tokyo’s Omotesando Hills – A special assortment of R@BBRICKs and NY@BRICKs.
Dubbed "MY FIRST R@BBRICK B@BY" and "MY FIRST NY@BRICK BABY," the two figure sets are painted in pastels of pink, yellow and green. The R@BBRICK comes with its signature bunny ears, while the NY@BRICK has cat ears. Designed by Japanese actress Chiaki Kuriyama, who played Takako Chigusa in Battle Royale or as Gogo Yubari in Kill Bill: Volume 1, one distinctive feature on the pieces is a transparent midsection, filled up half-way with small pearly orbs tinged in the aforementioned colors. Each set comes in sizes of 100% and 400% and arrives in vibrant color palettes that nod to the warm weather season.
The Medicom Toy MY FIRST R@BBRICK B@BY and MY FIRST NY@BRICK BABY figure sets will be available exclusively from July 6 – 7 at Medicom Toy Plus’ physical location in Tokyo for $120 USD. Those seeking to lay their hands on one will need to sign up in a raffle at medicomtoy.tv for a chance to purchase the figures.
