A tie up between Nike and Medicom has seen the release of a New Nike SB shoe along with matching 100% and 400% BE@RBRICK figures. Entitled Nike SB Dunks Low Elite x Medium Toy, the collaboration is the latest from the two companies, that have been partners for more than 15 years.
Announced by professional skater Theotis Beasley on his Instagram, the shoe was released on Black Friday. Given the prices the shoe is already fetching on eBay, it is safe to say that it no longer is available at retail. Sold separately, expect to pay about $175 for the shoes, and more than $200 for the 100% and 400% BE@RBRICKS.
Medicom has collaborated with firm fragment design to produce a new pair of wooden 400% size BE@RBRICKS. Priced at a whopping 200,000 Yen (roughly $1770) each, the hand-made wooden figures are available in Natural Wood and Carbon Black varieties. Both figures are available starting this month at the Medicom Toy Plus retail store in Tokyo.
Batman is certainly a larger than life character and suitably Medicom Toy will be producing a BE@RBRICK 400% Dark Knight Rises version of the figure. The figure stands nearly a foot tall and is based upon the Batman character seen in the popular motion picture, The Dark Knight Rises. The average BE@RBRICK stands about 3 inches tall but the 400% editions are 4 times the size and are more than 11 inches tall. The figure will be priced at ￥7,140 or about $80 and will be available this May.
