BEARBRICK SERIES 42
Bearbrick Series 42 Licenses
Medicom Toy is celebrating the 20 Years of Bearbrick this year. The ultra famous bears are releasing their Series 42 and the first licenses are been shown. Do you want to discover with us how would look the next Bearbrick Series?
Get ready for the new Bearbrick blind boxes appearing this summer (expected later on June based on previous years) with opportunities to meet normal and secret figures based on brands and artists such as Andy Warhol, NBA, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Minions, Sorayama and many more.
Kamen Rider Black
Kamen Rider Black is a Japanese tokusatsu (superheroes drama) and the eighth installment of the Kamen Rider Series that started back in 1988 and is very popular in Japan and Asia.
The classic monsters from the Universal Studios films will make a comeback in Series 42 most likely for the Horror Bearbrick. They received a Kubrick treatment and a 100% set was sold by Toys R Us years ago. Are we having a Dracula, Frankenstein, Werewolf or a new version of the Monster of the Black Lagoon?
Andy Warhol & Jean Michel Basquiat
Both artists are licensed on Series 42 but will they appear as two different Bearbricks or one with one of their collaborative works?
NBA Basketball Association
Shaquille O’neal, Michael Jordan, Lebron James and a lot more have been transformed on Bearbricks. Medicom Toy is working again with the NBA for another basket player having the bear body.
We are guessing that it could be a Bearbrick version of Michael Jordan’s sculpture with the USA uniform for the Barcelona Olympic Games that Medicom Toy is launching in May 2021. And that is a great decision!
Bearbricks and Fashion usually work together. The clothes brand Mint Designs comes from the catwalks direct to Medicom Toy. Their designs sure will work very good on a Pattern or Jellybean Bearbrick.
Minions: The Rise of Gru is the new Universal Studios movie planned for this Summer 2021 telling the story of these little yellow beings. The launch of the Bearbrick Series 42 just coincides in dates. We still don’t know who will be the chosen character but the image of Bob with braces shown on the promo posters can be a strong bet.
A.Girl - Kaiju Icey’s Owner
Artist Seri Norica has been included on some of the Vinyl Artist Gacha for Medicom Toy, the little vinyl figures made by artists that you can get from gachapon machines. The name suggests that the new character is the girl that owns the Kaiju Icey character, a kaiju made when an ice ball falled to the floor. Ultra cute!
Sorayama, the master of sexy robots has been working with Medicom Toy for a long time. His exhibitions in Japan in galleries such as the 2G by Nanzuka Underground have recognized worldwide success. With what design will he surprise us? One thing is sure, it will shine a lot!

Koguma No Kake-Ya San (Koguma’s Cake Shop)
Based on the KamenTotsu manga, Koguma’s Cake Shop, a brand new patisserie run by a bear cub. A four panel strip that started being published on twitter 3 years ago about a fine baker Bear that must learn about running a small business. This character is ideal for a Bearbrick. Will he also wear his chef's hat?
