MoMA x Medicom Bearbrick Figure

When Dutch post-impressionist painter Vincent van Gogh created his masterpiece The Starry Night, he would never had thought it would be a LEGO toy collectible 130 something years latter. I pretty damn sure, he would never had imagined his world famous painting would find itself on a Bearbrick collectible figure too.

That’s right, people. Van Gogh’s The Starry Night has found its way onto Medicom Toy’s Bearbrick (stylized as BE@RBRICK). The MoMA x Medicom Bearbrick Figure is a collaborative product between the Japanese toy maker and Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) Design Store in Japan.

The MoMA x Medicom Bearbrick Figure is offered in three sizes: 100% (about 70 mm) and 400% (about 280 mm) (as a set), and 1000% (around 700 mm). Each figure is made up of 9 parts, each carefully imprint with The Starry Night painting with a unique finish.

It is worthy to note that no two figures are the same. Each Bearbrick features a slightly different way of printing.
