Halloween Bearbrick

Trick or Treat!! Halloween’s here so here are my Halloween Bearbricks.

2010 Halloween Bearbrick (with LED) 100%
Just got it last week! The first Bearbrick with a light-up LED. Press its head and its belly lights up. What I don’t like is that it’s a push-and-release switch. Release it and it turns off. So it can’t be turned on continuously. I guess the guys at Medicom don’t want the battery to drain quickly or it heats up if pressed for a long time.

I do like the colors and the bat eyes and bat belly though. I think the paint on the head is glow-in-the-dark paint, too. Spooky…

2009 Halloween Bearbrick 400%
(Flocked and Glow-In-The-Dark)
This Bearbrick has its pumpkin head flocked in orange color and the body flocked in black dripping down its legs. The ‘Trick or Treat’ on its body is printed in black behind a glow-in-the-dark plastic.

The remaining parts that are not flocked (the eyes, mouth, hands and legs) are also glow-in-the-dark plastic so the overall figure glows eerily in darkness.


2008 Dr. Romanelli Halloween Bearbrick 400%
This, to me, is one of the best-looking Bearbricks. This all-clear plastic design by Dr. Romanelli has its inner anatomy painted on the front and back with bloody veins running all over…

The ‘Dr.’ actually stands for Darren. L.A. fashion designer Darren Romanelli. His fashion is built on the concept of ‘personalization’. 


He reworks and customizes pieces into a new shape keeping the item vintage, at the same time making it new to a younger generation. His jackets are kinda cool! 

He started off with Medicom with the ‘SF’ Bearbrick in Series 14. More Bearbricks from him coming soon this Christmas. Will update once I have them.


2007 Halloween Green Pumpkin Bearbrick 400%
This is a green re-paint of the first Halloween Bearbrick made way back in 2001 (see below).


2001 Halloween Orange Pumpkin Bearbrick 400%
The first Halloween-themed 400% Bearbrick. This Bearbrick is one of the earlier generations with a poor design. 

This 400% has a smooth movement in its arms and legs compared to a kind of ratchet (click, click, click) movement that the Bearbricks now have. Because of this smooth movement, the legs spread apart easily. When the Bearbrick stands, both feet could not touch the ground. So it actually stands on one leg.

There are a few other first generation 400% Bearbricks with this problem and I tend to avoid buying them.

Anyway, Happy Halloween to all!!
