Ga Ga For Gashapons

Damn it! It’s not like I need to start collecting something else but I just can’t help it. I love Gashapons! ( Don’t know what Gashapons are? Then click here to find out)

Recently I was in Japan Town, in downtown San Francisco, when I came across a Japanese toy store selling all sorts of cool action figures, models, trading cards, and Gashapons. I bought two blind boxes (A blind box is a type of packaging that completely hides its contents.Blind boxes are identical in every way and nobody knows which toy is inside.) figures from  the Dragonball Z HG+ Action Pose series volume 1 & 2.

I love surprises (just like when I get a pack of trading cards) and I was hoping to get either a Piccolo or a Vegeta figure from either box. But instead I ended up with two figures of Goku.

Although discouraged I wasn’t going to give up on getting at least one character I liked, so I returned to the Japanese store a week later to buy two more blind boxes. And guess what…I got Majin Buu and Mr. Satan! *sob*

Majin Buu is gonna get you!  

Oh well… there are tons of various Dragonball Z Gashapon series to collect from and I’ve got some great ones in storage! (Which I’ll be getting out of storage next time I’m in Dallas).

Got something to say? Go for it!
