The Manekineko – which literally means “Beckoning Cat” – is a common way to welcome visitors to your home or business, coming in almost any form, color, and degree of ornateness that you can think of. While you may have seen the Manekineko in the form of a key chain, piggy bank, or ornament, MEDICOM TOY‘s latest BE@RBRICK is a first for the good luck charm. Wearing the traditional collar, bell, and decorative bib as well as the koban coin, this BE@RBRICK is ready to bring good fortune and wealth to its owner in either its 100% or 400% size. Colored to match the traditional patches on its knees and elbows with the traditional red lines on its paws and face and a white body, this latest addition to the MEDICOM family will release on May 22 at their new flagship store in Tokyo Solamachi.
Release Date: May 22, 2012 (Tuesday)
