In opening the new store inside the Skytree Town Solamachi shopping complex in Tokyo, boutique toy brand MEDICOM TOY have looked to their roots for inspiration. Dubbed the Japan Series, or Wa Series in Japanese, these BE@RBRICKS are a modern reinterpretation of the traditional characters and figures from Japanese culture. Perhaps it is their take on a unique, yet modern souvenir for international guests who visit the newly built Skytree tower. The Manekineko BE@RBRICK we reported on earlier is also part of this collection, and it is accompanied by Shishimai (Lion Dance), Kabuki, Buriki Kingyo (Toy Goldfish), and Daruma. Both the Shishimai and Buriki Kingyo figures will be on offer in 100% and 400% sizes, while the Kabuki BE@RBRICK is only available in 100% size, and Daruma comes in 1000% size. All of the toys will be available at the newly opened MEDICOM TOY store from Tuesday, May 22.
