First up from the 10th Anniversary Zodiac Rilakkuma order is Taurus Rilakkuma!
Taurus (♉) is symbolized by the bull: in Greek mythology, Taurus is connected to Zeus, who disguised himself as a white bull to abduct the Phoenician princess Europa (how rude).
Today, Taurus Rilakkuma is dressed like a little Holstein bull with a bright red collar!
San-X actually released Rilakkuma (and Korilakkuma) in a full cow suit back in 2008. Seems like Rilakkuma appears in a cow outfit every 5 years!
Taurus is mine sign too! I think they could’ve done a better job with this sign, it looks too much like a cow and not like a bull.
Yeah – he basically looks like the previous cow suit version but without the torso part. Guess they were afraid Rilakkuma would look too scary as a bull?
Yeah, he might be a little too scary with a nose ring…
Haha it’s mine too, looks like everyone is Taurus. So cute, can’t wait to see more!
Hahaha must be something about that sign that turns people in Rilakkuma fans!
WOW! All of you are Tauruses! That is incredible. Taurus is one of my absolute favorite signs. I can only think of one Taurus I don’t get along with. Otherwise, I adore them.
(I’m a Capricorn, and I LOVE the Rila Capricorn plush. I hope to eventually get one. All 12 of them are so beautiful, though.
Capricorn is so adorable – I hope to collect the entire 12 one day!
Do you know if there are any places where I can purchase this??? I know that they are not being made anymore, but do you know of anyone that is selling one?? Any information would be appreciated!!! Thank you!! =)
Were you looking for just the Taurus version, or the zodiac series in general? I haven’t seen too many Taurus Rilakkumas left on English/American sites, but there are a few on Yahoo Japan auctions: http://auctions.search.yahoo.co.jp/search?p=%E3%81%8A%E3%81%86%E3%81%97+%E3%83%AA%E3%83%A9%E3%83%83%E3%82%AF%E3%83%9E&auccat=&aq=-1&oq=&ei=UTF-8&slider=0&tab_ex=commerce
