I currently have 8 1000%
all 6 bape released and the 2 godzilla 1000%
I also have them in 400% and 100% but might get rid of those and keep a sleek look with the 1000%
I will continue with bape if they release ( still contemplating the baby milo 1000%) and if they ever release a evangelion 1000%

Def only buy what you want. If you are just trying to build for the sake of building a collection you wont really enjoy what you have as its just a lot of fluff.
I saw your collection on insta this morning, very stunning. The 1000s are great but they take up so much room. If only I could start again and display 5-10 figures (never happen lol).

Yeah they take up a lot of room. So im sticking with a theme of just bape, evangelion,and godzilla.
Not much a theme but more so what I like. Might get spongebob as well. Just really enjoy the bape and godzilla faces and evangelion is my main squeeze

You need add a Warhol too lol (that’s where collecting bearbricks can be a good or bad pain - you can over collect on the different colourways etc.)

I do like it (but usually only pick up the green camo versions only). Is it an exclusive to a country or store?

Picked up the white neighborhood set.

^^^ Some nice Bears there, I wish that Gettry Burger had a box, always wish I had that one.

The purple Bape Bearbrick is releasing tomorrow (Sunday) as part of the Hong Kong Bape store 12th anniversary. It is a lottery release so I am doing my best to find out all the details (postings always in Chinese) and try for one but it seems like it might be fairly limited.

I was at ToyCon UK in London last weekend and picked this BWWT set up from a friend in a trade, still sealed from 2004.

Yes happy to have it in my collection now, and I think I got it at a decent price too.

The Bape HK release was fairly crazy, a lot of flippers (domestic helpers day off on Sunday, so easy to pay them to stand in line) and the weather was stormy. I was not able to make it work and now the prices are $550 US for a set already :evil: :evil: :evil:

yes that is a crazy hike in price. I personally really adore the bape bearbricks. The shark face ones that is. To each their own. Though at that price im passing on the purple. I have committed myself to only 1000% so am needing to sell off my 400%, 200%, and 100% lol. Another reason why it was an easy pass for me

I wanted the latest Bape for the HK significance as the shop is a common visit for me, being walk-able from my place. However there is a reason why of my 100+ 400%s, there is not a single Bape Bearbrick in there, prices rise too high, too fast and I don't pay big money for any Bears.

I have spotted the latest Atmos animal in person and I like it more than I thought I would (satin finish is nice) and the new white Neighborhood is also tempting me as I am a big fan of the brand and I have the black version already.

it will be one of the most expensive of the Bape bricks for sure. As far as I know its the only exclusive release for Bape bearbricks that isn't a collab with another brand in japan. Its a very nice color.

I preordered the new 1000% Sasada. The Daft Punk Set is too much for my Bank Account.

They are looking pretty good!! For the UK you could pre-order at CJ Mart or look at Collect & Display or MintyFresh. I still think UK/EU prices are ridiculous but I know there is some tax and shipping to worry about. I visited Size? when I was in London a couple weeks ago and nice to see Be@rbricks in there, but I could have picked up most of them in HK for half the price.

The new wood walnut and the Anrealage are also standouts in this months previews IMO.

It’s most probably easier to buy them in the UK. (Or anywhere that has free postage). Postage on 1000s are steep and you can’t really get past the customs value of £19 on a big box (I’ve most probably tried it 😂).

You can ship a 1000% from HK to UK/EU for around 75 GBP and declare it say around 200 to be somewhat realistic, but that 20% tax is tough.
