A New Discovery ( not really)

Long time I haven't blogged.... sorry!! Anyway, during the holidays me and my family went shopping in Sunway Pyramid, Asian Avenue. My elder brother, Kaelan, was looking for a birthday present for his friend. We entered this shop called Welcome Planet. I was browsing around in the shelves. Suddenly, I noticed this little figurine on the shelf. It was something I've seen before but didn't pay much attention to. Ok.........

*drum roll please*...............


You all must think what is this crazy, insane, mentally cacat blogger boy talking about. Well rest assured I'm perfectly sane and mentally balanced. Bearbricks are small little figurines that look like bears that are professionnally designed to look like many of your fav characters like Darth Vader and Batman.

This is what Wikipedia had to say( actually I just want to advertise Wikipedia) about this awesome things:

"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 signa is a visual device that is a part of the Be@rbrick brand, and as such, a trademark of MediCom Toy. in the place of the letter

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: swivelwaist, ball joint arms, swivel wrists, and ball joint legs. head, swivel."

Note: Not very sure what anthropomorphized means.
