Super quick update before my anatomy dissection lab starts: Tokyo Station Rilakkuma Store 5th Anniversary Plushie designs have been announced!
Wow, so many! And so cute!
The first row of plushies are Hinamatsuri (雛祭り – Doll’s Day/Girl’s Day) themed. Looks like Korilakkuma is holding her own Korilakkuma dolls, Rilakkuma is holding some bear-shaped hishi mochi (菱餅), and Kiiroitori has his own plate of arare (あられ) all for Doll’s Day! They are 1300 円 each, and will be released on February 14 (Valentine’s Day)! Last year, San-X released special Rilakkuma and Korilakkuma dolls for Hinamatsuri!
The 2nd row shows a special plushie that features a Marunouchi (丸の内 – a commercial district of Tokyo) design! Super adorable – I love a Rilakkuma with a camera – and they’ll come in a bunch of different sizes, from keychain, to standard S (22 cm – collectible size), to M (like my first Rilakkuma), and will be 1480 円, 2000 円, and 3500 円, respectively. The M size will only be sold at the Tokyo Station Rilakkuma Store! They will also be released on February 14.
What do you all think?
Totally excited!! And oh dear!!! More plushies!!! :D hahaha!!! Yup!! Yup!! Love the Rilakkuma with camera too!! I love his shirt!! So fashionable!!!:)) which size should I get??:O :))
Thank you so much for the update Faith!!!:))
It really is so exciting!! I might get the S size since almost all of my plushies are S size haha, but I still have to decide! So cute!
So exciting!! I am seriously considering getting this anniversary one because it is so cute! I really like the camera kuma I get a yamanote feel with it~ I like the big version but I’ll probably just go for the standard one :D
They really do have a Yamanote feel to them, I love it! San-X is probably trying to ride the wave of popularity that the Yamanote collab generated haha. I might have to get a standard sized one too! :D
Oh my gosh, these are awesome! I especially love Kiiroitori’s, it’s so pretty and I already know where I’d put it if I bought it. I also really like Korilakkuma’s design, she’s so cute holding those two dolls.
I’m not really feeling Rilakkuma’s design though. It looks bulky and for some reason, it looks like he’s wearing pants to me (maybe from the shadow of the sandwich box?).
Not feeling it for the camera one either. I don’t like Rilakkuma and the gang wearing t-shirts >_<
Korilakkuma really is so cute holding those two dolls! It reminds me a lot of the Gemini Rilakkuma from the zodiac series holding the two Korilakkumas as well: https://rilakkumalifestyle.wordpress.com/2013/02/03/gemini-rilakkuma-plushie
Love the hinamatsuri ones <3 thanks for posting them!x
Me too! I really love seeing how much San-X incorporates Japanese tradition into their Rilakkuma plushie designs :D
Tokyo Station holds a very special place in my heart.
Rilakkuma feels the same way! :D
Congrats on your collection being featured! How exciting~
Yay thanks so much hehehe :D
