Anglophiles will appreciate the Medicom x Silas Union Jack Bearbricks created for the Summer 2011 season. The 100-percent-scale Bearbricks come in black and white and feature the Union Jack superimposed on the toy bear's torso. The Silas name and stylized "S" logo are emblazoned atop the British flag print; the same stylized "S" appears over the Bearbrick's left eye.
Patriotic themes run rampant in the vinyl toy world, especially for summer collections. As the popularity of Bearbrick toys continues to grow worldwide, we're increasingly seeing big brands collaborate with vinyl toy manufacturers for limited-edition releases. This particular choice celebrates Silas' triumphant return to the U.K. clothing market after a brief hiatus. The Medicom x Silas Union Jack Bearbricks will be available for sale in April 2011.
