MEDICOM TOY, BE@RBRICK Lucky Cat Gold 1000%.
Coming in the 1000% size, this figure depicts a Japanese maneki-neko, which means “beckoning cat” and is meant to bring good luck . His raised left paw means customers come, while a raised right paw means money and good fortune are on the way. The BE@RBRICK‘s head is scrawled with prominent features like red ears, subtle eyelashes, big round eyes, a pink nose and long whiskers. A yellow bell dangles below the neck, while a gold ryo is placed over the belly. Other highlights like the painted knees, elbows and curved tail round up the details of the figure.
Founded in 1996, MEDICOM TOY is a Japanese toy brand that specialises in creating collectable toys and superheroes. MEDICOM TOY aimed to create collectable pieces of art rather, thus their products are sold in limited quantities. Their most popular line of toys is the BE@RBRICK series and the name is derived from the fact that the figure is a cartoon-style representation of a bear. Each figure features nine parts (widely referred to as tools in the toy industry): head, torso, hips, arms, hands, and legs. These nine tools allow eight points of articulation. MediCom Toy (BE@RBRICK ), counts a long list of collaborations, including Star Wars, Undercover, Disney, Chanel, Supreme, Fendi and much more.
