First of all, cinema is undeniably all about characters. If the characters are relatable and depicted brilliantly, fans are able to connect with them on a different level (just as we connect with Bearbrick figures, don’t judge 🙈). We are aware some of these characters came from comic books and cartoons background, nevertheless, they’ve made a huge impact in the movie industry as well.

He represents the humane side of anarchy and chaos. And yet, we all love him. There have been many great Joker performances over the years, and each one is quite unique and spectacular. There are also a few Joker Bearbrick figures as well (and they are all spectacular).
2) Terminator Bearbrick figure — “I’ll be back.” Terminator has to be the most popular movie character of all time. Disguised as a human, a cyborg assassin known as a Terminator pretty much stole all hearts away. This movie franchise spawns the greatest sequel and unforgettable characters. The legendary Arnold Schwarzenegger is one of the most charismatic actors of all time which makes it even better that he plays a robot so well. Either way, he’s the best in all of these movies.
