Developed under the San-X label of Sanrio, the lovable Rilakkuma character is turning 10 years old this year. Its name derives from a hybrid of English and Japanese words, broken down into Relax and Kuma, the Japanese word for bear. Though this relaxed bear does not translate too well into the BE@RBRICK proportions, there is more of a resemblance once its outer layer of fur skin is taken off. It is evident that MEDICOM TOY created this 1000% figure for hardcore BE@RBRICK collectors who might want to get this bear for their collection. This toy will be available in December at project 1/6, the MEDICOM TOY online shop, and Rilakkuma dealers in japan.
