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.
There are plenty of 1000% Bearbricks below a $1,000 price range, but these are typically easy to come by. So we put together this list of some of the most expensive 1000% Bearbricks sold in auctions and on StockX.
