Can anyone help me track down these Basquiat Bearbricks? They're amazing!

Are you based in North America, Europe or Asia?

The official Basquiat pre-order is over now, so you can still pre-order them at a place like Fatsuma or you can now wait till December - January for deliveries to occur and buy then.

Medicom site was updated today, Haring up for order, Chemical Brothers 400%, Atmos - Staple 400% set, Konatsu and Shoko Nagazawa Mazinger, Devilman sets and a Chogokin silver lucky cat 200% are some of the highlights.

I picked up a couple new 400s this week, have to grab a pic but getting very close to my 100th 400% now...

But i would ask them first if they can deliver, even if it is available in the shop.


The Harring piece :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: Hopefully Mintyfresh will get them, CJMart is such a pain with german customs.

I saw both in person. They are fun hydro prints but the resolution of them shows digital artifacts. The Harring hides it much better though. I think as long as you stay a few feet away, either is fine.

All that said, I ordered the Harring vcd figure.

The Haring and Basquiat 1000% pieces are the first time I've really wanted a Bearbrick of that scale. Super tempted to get the duo even though I can't afford them.

I grabbed these three over the last week and a bit. Tempted on the 2001 400/100 set now that it is out, but heading to Beijing Toy Show in a couple weeks so might have to save my money ;)

Punk Drunkers is a very well known brand/image in Asia, scoring one of their sofubi figures is extremely difficult too, so the Be@rbick made it a little easier but yes they went very fast and prices seem to be climbing.

Congrats on the Harring!!

Does anyone know how to get the Konatsu/shoko devilman,mazinger sets from Medicom? I know they don't ship overseas but I was hoping to try a forwarding service or something. I can't seem to find a way through Buyee (dont think they are a partner?) so any help is appreciated. :badgrin:

^^^ I think they are only being released at the Go Nagai 50th Anniversary event Sep 9-11 in Tokyo and a couple of the Loft locations, so you need someone to get you them there or wait for them to appear on secondary sites after the event. The first Shoko Loft release was not too hard to find so it is possible they will be about in a couple weeks time.

so I feel like I asked this but unsure. I use toysdorado to look at current bearbricks but im noticing they arent updating the newer released ones. Where do you get your bearbrick news for upcoming releases? I dont have twitter but I do have instagram

This shop is normaly the fastest for news. They even post the brochures with upcoming drops and prices, way before medicom itself.

Haroshi's IG said coming but not soon, so I think you are looking at 6-12 months on that one maybe even longer. One would assume it will be pretty limited, probably will be a Medicom Plus release but just guessing at this point.

I follow the Medicom website (updates monthly), the Medicom Blog and various people on IG for the latest news. As mentioned Naughty Guy tends to break news first, usually a couple days before the Medicom update and for reference his prices are usually the best in HK and the shop is mental.

The prices will skyrocket, because it is Colette, but it is butt ugly.

I pass on this one..

I have always used Toysdorado, but as mentioned it is a bit slow in updating currently. I am not sure on other options but I also just keep a spreadsheet for backup, at least for my 200/400/1000s.

I attended the Beijing Toy Show (BTS) this past weekend and there were a few Be@rbricks around. Medicom did have a booth but it was stocked with mostly older items and by the end of day 1 it was empty. They did some ordering after but I am not exactly what for, you needed a ticket or something and I didn't get any help on translating as I found the prices to be a little high there.

BTS 100%, might have been what was on order

Image

Tofu (Devilrobots) sets coming soon

Image

Milk Cargo's (HK Magazine) past and future releases. They are doing the NBA 400s in sets, Cavs and Warriors already sold, Lakers and Spurs coming up for order and Bulls, Celtics set later.

Image

Eric So had a retrospective and he had his Estate series there including the 400% which is early and still made of vinyl. I would love to get one to go with the 100% set I have.
