{     Mori Chack's Gloomy Bear - Pandatone Variants     }    

Ahhhh, Gloomy Bear! So cute, so cuddly, so deadly. Longtime admirers of Gloomy already know the story- boy finds adorable little bear cub, raises cub to adulthood as his best friend, bear eventually realizes his true nature and shreds boy to bits. If rampant Disneyfication of Mother Nature is the joke, than Gloomy Bear is the harsh reality-flavored punchline. For a couple of years now, Mori Chack has been serving up his original Gloomy design in a plethora of variations- from Bloody Camo and Instictive colorways to the steel-plated robo-super-bear Kumakikai. The newest variants are rendered in a "Pandatone" scheme, and they just may be the cutest Gloomy Bears yet. The fella seen here has yet to make it to the States, he's the Bloody Gloomy Bear Standup in Black Pandatone. Standing around 12 inches tall, he's somewhat poseable (thanks to an internal wire-skeleton) and I'd smile and giggle the whole time he was disembowling me were I ever to actually run into him. There are a whole rainbow of smaller Pandatone plush colorways (pink, yellow, orange, green, red, blue, purple, and sky blue) already available in the US. I've got my fingers crossed that the black Pandatones will be showing up here soon.

There's something about their huge, misshapen heads... and the claws, and their cylindrical limbs... it's like they cracked the formula for "cute".

You really need to see the Pink Baby Wind-Up, it actually crawls just like a real teddy-bear baby! Seriously, it is simultaneously one of the most adorable and one of the most terrifying things I've ever seen.
It reminds me of the hallucination scene in Trainspotting where the baby is crawling across the ceiling.

Really?! That was one creepy/funny scene...I laughed but felt guilty afterward. Poor, poor neglected heroin baby. (I so want a pink baby wind-up panda now!)

It's hard to say what the cost would be, and how long it would take to get to you, especially if you are ordering outside of the US.

You can e-mail-

and tell them what you want and where you are (and make sure to ask how long it would take to arrive), they should be able to help you out.
They have the best domestic price on Gloomy Bears I have seen, and though it might take a while to get to you, they ship securely.
