Bearbrick 1000% - Karimoku Long Chess
Although best known for their moulded plastic bodies, Medicom's Be@rbrick figures are also a fantastic base for unique materials. Over the years everything from aluminium to carbon fibre has been used to create special editions, but few measure up to the wooden versions made by Karimoku. A master woodworker in Japan, Karimoku Yosegi is famously known for his furniture design and now in luxury figurines. His famous Bearbrick is constructed with a complex parquetry process.
Yosegi selects different essences and colours of wood which he puts together by hand to form patterns throughout the figurine. In the 1000% version, this is nothing less than a work of art.
Weighing in at roughly 26kgs, it comes encased in its own custom made wooden crate.
