Limited edition figures designed personally by the girls06 July, 2010 by Chad
This is just a quick follow up to the AKB48 7-11 Promotion post. Here are pictures of all 48 Bearbricks designed by each of the members.
The Bearbricks can be obtained randomly from this month’s 7-11 promotion. Some of the girls are clearly more artistically inclined than the rest, but that is not what the fans love them for anyways and designs from the more popular members will likely resell for many times more.
Team A Be@rbricks:
Nakaya Sayaka’s bearbrick looks rather mismatched, though the colors might be of some significance? Aachan on the other hand, provides a graphically sound technicolor star pattern.
Maeda Ami’s bear looks positively dainty but is also suspiciously pants-less, while Matsubara Natsumi seems to be apologizing for her lack of time.
Kuramochi’s design is hilarious and rather ingenious.
Kojima is back with her creepy cat while Sashihara’s bear is kind of strange.
Shinoda Mariko could have put in a little more effort.
Takajyou was feeling eco-friendly.
Takamina’s rabbit-bear-prince is definitely adorable.
Surely Nakagawa and Nakata must had conspired with Shinoda.
Iwasa Misaki loves music.
Lovetan’s bear is both jaundiced and lovesick.
Ooya gives fans another simple but sweet design.
Another heart design bear, but Katayama Haruka clearly put in more effort into her design than the others.

The trio of Matsui, Minegishi and Miyazawa seem disturbed.
Rumi’s bear is amusing, in a naked way.
