'Astro Boy' is a Japanese comic series that started out back in the early 1950s, however the science fiction plot and the unique illustrations made it go global and become the focus of a series of adaptations -- making the Astro Boy toy designed by Medicom a product that's likely to prove popular amongst consumers.

Like it's other Bearbrick collectibles, the company combines the traditional appearance of the manga character with its own model -- transforming the look of his head and body and supplying him with a set of ears. The Astro Boy toy meanwhile retains the character's facial features and his iconic hairstyle, giving it an appearance that's instantly recognizable to fans of the series.
