Blind Box Monday

This Unicorno blind bag plushie chosen in honor of the crazy weather we’re having.

Admittedly, upper 30s and raining doesn’t feel as tropical as this guy evokes (though considering how long it’s been since it was above freezing, it still kind of feels it), but it’s supposed to be in the 50s by Wednesday, so…that’s pretty freakin’ tropical for January.  (And then, if the extended forecast is right, it’ll back down into the 20s by the weekend…and then back up into the 50s again…)

(And yes, I do realize that the weather where I live is irrelevant to people elsewhere.)


Blind Box Monday – New Year’s

The first photo I’ve taken this year!

The new “season” of these blind box Unicornos is the first one that I like so many of them enough to buy more than one.  (This one is the second one I’ve bought, btw.)  Most of the time, when a particular box out of the array is shouting “buy me!” at me, it turns out to be a trick.

This time, it wasn’t. 😀  This guy is awesome.

I’m hoping to be better at posting things other than just the Monday posts this year.  Certainly, February is promising to be better.  Or rather, I already have a bunch of photos, so how can it not be?  January is probably still going to be quiet; I’ll be working 1 day short of full-time in January (5 days a week every week except the third week, when I have one day off), and a lot of it, esp. in the first two weeks, will be more physical than I’m used to, so I’m likely not to have any energy left over for taking pictures with.  But after that, I’d like to get back to regular photo shoots so I can start doing real posts again.

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?)
