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 plans to mark the upcoming Holiday Season with a new Christmas themed BE@RBRICK. The figure features a stained glass Christmas tree on a solid black background on the front, while the back is translucent with a simple white Christmas tree logo.
Sold as a pair, with one being the standard 100% size (70 mm / 2.8 in) BE@RBRICK, and the other 400% (280 mm / 11 in), the duo will be priced at ￥9,500 (roughly $85)
The figures are a follow up to a 100% figure released last year that featured Christmas Tree themed stained glass artwork.

To mark the 60th and 130th anniversaries of the Tokyo and Eiffel towers, respectively, BE@RBRICK has announced the release of two new figures.
The two figures feature a color scheme that matches the flag of each towers home nation, as well as a black and white imprint of the towers themselves.
Sold as a pair, the set is priced at nearly $60 and available online via French outlet colette, where they have already sold out.
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.
Iron Man 3 has been one of this Summer’s biggest blockbusters, grossing over one billion dollars in revenue. This makes it about time that Medicom Toy released a figure of one of the movie’s main characters, War Machine. The figure will be available in both 100% and 400% versions, with the 100% figure priced at ¥1,680/$17 and the 400% figure priced at ¥7,350/$75.
