Be@rbrick Values
What is BE@RBRICK?

BE@RBRICK represents a collectible toy crafted by the renowned Japanese manufacturer, MediCom Toy. Since its inception in 1996, MediCom Toy has been responsible for producing a diverse array of limited-edition toys and licensed merchandise. The standout among these creations is BE@RBRICK, celebrated for its immense popularity and exceptional artistic value. The exquisite craftsmanship and collectible nature of BE@RBRICKs have propelled them into the upper echelons of the toy collecting realm.

A pivotal factor in BE@RBRICK’s triumph lies in MediCom Toy’s remarkable ability to collaborate with global brands and artists. Esteemed urban artists from around the world, including BAPE, KAWS, KRINK, and Pushead, have lent their creative prowess to various lines of BE@RBRICK. The artistic contributions of luminaries such as Keith Haring and Basquiat, as well as partnerships with diverse brands like Nike, Swarovski, and Disney, have seamlessly blended commercial and high art. This fusion has catapulted BE@RBRICK into the art community, a distinction that few collectible toys have achieved.

'Qiu Tu' 1000% Bearbrick (2008), Sold for a staggering $157,000 at auction.

Who works and collaborates with BE@RBRICK?

BE@RBRICK has formed collaborations with prominent figures in the commercial art sphere. Iconic brands such as Chanel, Swarovski, Levi’s, and Disney, alongside lesser-known yet prestigious entities like Karimoku, the Japanese furniture manufacturer, have all engaged with BE@RBRICK. One of the captivating aspects of BE@RBRICK is its role as a blank canvas upon which brands and artists can convey messages or artistic statements. This has led innovators like KAWS, BAPE, and KRINK to ingeniously subvert commercial aesthetics while immersing themselves in pop culture. This dynamic ability to blend high and low art aligns with the prevailing trend of urban art over the past decade.

When did BE@RBRICK first get released?

The inaugural BE@RBRICK made its debut on May 27th, 2001, distributed as a door prize during the World Character Convention in Tokyo. This pioneering BE@RBRICK stood 70 mm tall, subsequently becoming the standard size for BE@RBRICKs. Since then, the BE@RBRICK fanbase has grown exponentially, with global collectors and enthusiasts rallying behind it. Influential urban art institutions like Hypebeast have bolstered its prominence. While it originated as a Japanese phenomenon, the past two decades have witnessed BE@RBRICK’s evolution into a worldwide sensation, sustaining its appeal to collectors and fans alike.

How much are BE@RBRICKs worth?

BE@RBRICK’s hold a wide spectrum of value, ranging from around fifty dollars to well over a hundred thousand dollars. The highest price ever paid for a BE@RBRICK at auction stands at $157,000 for the piece titled “Qiu Tu” (2008), a unique design by artist Yue Minjun. This example epitomizes the factors that contribute to a BE@RBRICK’s value: exclusivity, association with a sought-after artistic personality, and a remarkably limited production.

The most expensive BE@RBRICK is the ‘Qiu Tu’ 1000% Bearbrick (2008), a one-off design created by Chinese contemporary artist Yue Minjun, which sold for a staggering $157,000 at auction.

‘Qiu Tu’ 1000% Bearbrick (2008)

Yue Minjun designed this Bearbrick in 2008 to honor Chinese artists and use his unique art form. Minjun’s artwork of himself with the look of frozen laughing is depicted in the figure, which has a wide-open gaping mouth and a cheery demeanor. Yue Minjun is one of China’s most well-known artists, which no doubt contributed to the Bearbrick’s exorbitant price. It was sold at auction for a whopping $157,000, making it one of the most expensive Bearbricks in the world ever sold.

For streetwear fans, Medicom Toy’s Bearbrick series is likely a familiar face. The collectible toys are effectively an adult’s answer to hitting up Toys “R” Us as a child. The main difference is that unlike your childhood toys, these Bearbrick figures have rapidly become sought-after art pieces. Since the brand’s first release in May 2001, the Japanese toy company has collaborated with artists, fashion designers, and major retailers to produce these collectible figures. When it comes to decorating your home, a solid Bearbrick is easily one of the coolest pieces you could add to any room. 

Bearbricks come in many different sizes; the most popular models are the 1000% Bearbricks–which are approximately 2.3 feet high and popular with celebrities like Ben Baller. The shape of a Bearbrick itself never really changes. What makes these toys so coveted are commemorative and rare editions designed by high-end fashion brands or revered pop artists. Bearbricks made by Chanel or artists like KAWS have earned a reputation among art dealers and toy enthusiasts for not only being must-haves, but for also fetching high prices on auction blocks and resell sites.
