This is not the first time MEDICOM TOY has collaborated with Japanese wooden furniture manufacturer Karimoku, though they have tried a completely new technique on their latest BE@RBRICK. Each of these figures are made by hand in Japan by experienced craftsmen, and the 400% BE@RBRICK is constructed from natural wood materials. One point of difference with this piece, compared to previous releases, is the special glow-in-the-dark clear coating on the exterior. A slight green tint is visible in the light, but when placed in the dark, it illuminates in the usual green tone. This figure will also be launching on Saturday, June 23, 2012 at the MEDICOM TOY Exhibition 2012, and project 1/6 is taking pre-order now on their online shop.
