Blind Box Monday

Yup.

That is a kaiju Unicorno. 😀

Blind Box Monday

So, I was at a toy store (wow, how unusual for me, right?) and looking around at all the stuff-n-such, and I of course ended up gravitating towards various cute stuffs, including some Tokidoki blind box figures.  This one in particular caught my eye:

The sides of the box, as is usually the case, show the possible contents of the box:

 

There was one of those in particular that I especially wanted, but my luck with these things is pretty patchy, so I wasn’t sure…

…until I noticed that all the others in the display were Series 5.  So this was the last Series 4 they had, possibly my last chance to get any of them without overpaying.

Blind Box Monday

Yup, the “standard” version now.

There are still two more of these waiting in the wings, but I wonder if I shouldn’t do some other type of blind box figure next week?

The gallery for these posts can be found here.  I went ahead and added in photos of other blind box figures that have been posted here in the past.  (Even though that meant uploading them to the new photo storage site.  But eventually I need to get around to uploading everything, so…that’s a good thing, right?)

Blind Box Monday

Yup, decided to do a weekly feature.  Because it’s better than massive inactivity, right?  I’ve made some purchases I shouldn’t have lately, though, and I’m hoping one or more of those might motivate me to start taking photos again when they arrive.  (Though when July ends there’ll be more chance of that, naturally.)

Today’s entry only kind of counts as “Blind Box” though.  Because while she was sold as a blind box figure, I got her at the local used store in a clear plastic baggie, because some crazy sold back oodles of these, all of them really great.  (I did leave one behind…because I already had her. 😛 )

I’ll never have the ultra-limited edition full size Barbie version of this (I saw one on Mandarake going for the price of a Dollfie Dream!) but at least now I have the SD mini-figure of her. 🙂

That holo-foil backdrop makes nice bokeh in the background, doesn’t it?  It lets me see a bit of the back of whatever’s on the shelf, too.  I’m really glad I went with that one. 😀

(With next week’s entry into this series, I’ll start posting a link to a gallery of these, but there didn’t seem any point with just one in the gallery. 😛  I have taken a lot more than just one photo, naturally.  Went ahead and got several months’ worth while I was at it.)

Deliciously Cute

Okay, a long time ago now, I put up a post about a Kickstarter I was backing.  Well, the plushies produced by that Kickstarter arrived months ago, but due to one thing and another, I’m only just getting around to them in any proper manner.  (Timing was part of it:  they arrived when my house stank because of the dead mouse in the walls, so I left them in the plastic bag they shipped in, to protect them from the smell, only then everything went all weird on me otherwise, and…)

So, without further ado, let me start the post by introducing you to the goodies I got for backing the Kickstarter. 🙂

To start with, here’s the logo, on the grocery tote I got.  (There was all sorts of neat stuff in the add-on shop, y’know?) Continue reading
