I found some guys selling around 10-12 normal bearbricks from serie 33 for a total of approx 63$ + shipping (high rated seller). Is that too cheap to be legit?

Br,
CJS
Depending on the design, the 100%'s can be really affordable when bought in bulk like that as they don't really sell for too much. Just make sure to get pics of the boxes to verify if you're worried about them being authentic.

It looks like there will finally be more Fragment Woods being released at Medicom Plus on the 29th, so at least more into the market.

I also had the pleasure of visiting with Eric So yesterday and finding out I was a collector of Be@rbricks he gave me a full set of the So Fun series and also the Estate Rainbow set as well, all still sealed from 2002...

I am luckily enough working in toys in Hong Kong so I get to meet lots of people and I have had the pleasure of meeting Eric a few times now, but this was the first time I got to visit his studio space.

Good luck on the Mastermind search Drew, I only have the first myself.

Hah thanks. These are tough to find. i scored the large skull MM 400+100 from HK recently (not Sense version) and it was pricey.

If you see any of these in HK for sale, i'll pay you a nice finders fee.

That's awesome do you help great or market the toys?

Erics stuff is great, his Hellboy is one of my favorite pieces to date. I can imagine his studio has quite the collection going on. Would love to see pics haha.

^^ I think eBay and second hand shops/sites in Asia is the best bet on those guys.

I did not take my own picture yet but I had to grab the second Nag Nag Nag Bearbrick set. Very high retail price and the 100% included is different than the 400% but you can buy the matching one separately. The box art is spectacular as well, I just had to have this one and I got both 100s.

Color scheme looks like a collab between Shin and Mishka. Not that I care in the grand scheme of things, just pointing it out.

I have seen the red one recently for around $300 US in a toy reselling shop in HK.

I am loving this recent Medicom Plus 1st Anniversary release, have to see what the costs are around town on it...

Its arround 200 USD in Europe.

Allready pre-ordered one Set of those and a 1000% Camo Warhol.

And now we play the waiting game again...

There are a lot of nice bears in this times Drop. But seems like all of the Babys won´t hit europe. I am going to Japan in the winter, maybe i can score one there.

The Camo Warhols are available at all worldwide Medicom accounts, including CJ Mart, but not shipping till October/November. The Yasuto Sasada Peacock set is a Medicom Plus release but does seem to be in fairly good supply and is already out for purchase in the traditional reseller areas like eBay, Yahoo auctions etc.

The new Baby versions are releasing on the 24th, I have seen some pre-orders at triple retail which I think is too steep, but we will see how rare they are, most likely will command a good price going forward. The Konatsu 400% looks to be a lottery via Few Many, and the Medicom Expo is late this year taking place Jul 22-27.

really like this one, shame that US is excluded due to licence (rather not have to proxy or ebay). the only thing that bothers me a little is why aren't the ears clear?

I really like the TMNT design on the Be@r, the ears don't bother me, what makes a Be@rbrick and most don't have cleared ears even though they don't have big mouse/bear ears like Spongebob, Starwars, Marvel, etc.

Not sure on the Medicom Expo Star Wars releases, some are ok, but another Darth Vader seems like too much, more Fragment Wood though...

Another Porcelain Be@r coming too, Japanese this time, with movable joints but a lot more money than the French version.
