Anyway, that lotterie started in August, don´t now if it is still runing. Sideglide is the only one here who is able to visit an japanese 7-11 maybe he can help.

Cool, thanks. I've seen them on the bay but was just curious as to how it went down at the 7-11 stores. So depending how rare the winning ticket was, looks like it would be about $6 x however many it took to win. Could cost you under $10 or over $100.....unless you were friendly with the owner ;)

The contest is long gone now. there were 3 types of each charcter per store. Additionally, there were 6 2-packs with a limit of one pack type each per store. Finally, 1 400% per 7-11 available. NOt all 7-11s participated so I cannot say how many were available but I could only find 3 stores near my home/office that ran the campaign.

I have seen several of the 7-11 BB8 400% for sale in Hong Kong and the prices are about $100-120 US.

Tried to negotiate shipping options on eBay to combine shipping and the guy doesn't want to so he bumps up the price of the last two Evangelion bearbricks. I needed them to complete my Eva set :(

He said he adjusted to meet the market price during our back and forth messages. Wish I never messaged and just bought them. Cold :-({|=

Is here somebody who owns a 1000% Gizmo x Muveil?

Does the Fur Cover come off and what color is the basic color underneath?

Btw. I am looking for a worn out 1000% for a custom piece.

I have not seen the underneath of the Gizmo, I would assume white or brown but just a guess.

I am still mixed on custom Bearbricks, nice to see some new art but always at the cost of something else. I did see a well used 2002 Kaws 1000% yesterday but I would still keep it if I could!

Just got the confirmation they both shipped. I ended up getting both at the price the seller decided to bump each one at. So i lucked out by sidestepping a greedy upseller and getting my two for half the expected cost.

Have you all seen this new Bape bearbrick releasing tomorrow. Can only imagine the price

Probably a good investment (Chanel Be@r I am looking at you) but the price is steep and I am sure they all went quick.

Hi,

Just found this forum and have a couple of questions. I'm planning a trip to japan sometime next year around april or may and was wondering if there are a lot of stores that sell bearbricks. Also I was wondering how the price compares to buying them through ebay, toy stores in the US, etc. I'm really new to collecting bearbricks and want to expand my collection without completely emptying my wallet.

Thanks!

Question:
Can a 1000% bearbrick sit properly like a 400%. I have a 1000% but am afraid to force the sitting position. I can get it to as close as possible but it has an angle that causes it to fall

I don't think the 1000s sit as well, they don't go full 90 degrees if memory serves me correctly. They have a gear notch system in the legs while 400s are simpler, probably to support the increased weight of the big boys while standing and keep them stable.

Hi guys,

Does anyone have any idea how much you should give for a 400% Boba Fett bearbrick?

The 1000%' tend to fall backwards because, as Blair pointed out, they don't fully articulate to a position that balances their overall weight well. This is something that can be fixed if Medicom took it upon themselves to do so.

At the end of the day, I came to the conclusion that the 1000%' weren't meant to be played with or handled. Stick them in the corner and just look at them. LOL
