As you know I have started to collect Riddler paraphernalia and stuff mentioned previously with my ‘Riddler Power Plant’ and ‘The Batman, Riddler Action Figure’ along with some stuff I have got for my kids.
Well I have got myself this DC Superpowers Riddler from BE@RBRICK which was released at 2013 San Diego ComicCon (July 18-21) by Medicom Toy.
The BE@RBRICK was limited to only 1500 and so I am chuffed I managed to get one.
In 2012 they released the Joker from The Dark Knight Returns and followed suit in 2013 wit Riddler.
Be@rbrick is a collectible toy designed and produced by the Japanese company MediCom Toy Incorporated.
The name is derived from the fact that the figure is a cartoon-style representation of a bear, and that it is a variation of MediCom’s Kubrick design.
The at sign (@) in the place of the letter a is a visual device that is a part of the Bearbrick brand, and as such, a trademark of MediCom Toy.
The figure is an anthropomorphized bear with an extremely simplified form and a pot belly. Each plastic figure features nine parts (widely referred to as tools in the toy industry): head, torso, hips, arms, hands, and legs; These nine tools allow eight points of articulation: swivel head, swivel waist, ball joint arms, swivel wrists, and ball joint legs.
The first figure was released 27 May 2001 as a free gift to visitors of the World Character Convention 12 in Tokyo. Since then Bearbricks have been released in several different sizes using a variety of materials, including wood, felt, and glow-in-the-dark plastic.
