|There are 21 figures in the set. Just a few are of Arthur (armored and nearly nekkid) and the princess (not nekkid), and the rest of the figure are baddies bent on Arthur's destruction and, if you were a child of the 80s, all of your quarters.|
|Today's rubbery malfeasance took place at a nice coffee shop/restaurant called Glorious. It's smoke free and reasonably priced. The nachos aren't bad, and the serving of fries, which come in a paper bag NYC Pomme Frites style, is huge by Japan standards.|
|The figures came in five different colors, and they're about 1" tall.|
The Makaimura keshi were released in two ways. As I've been told, most were sold in gacha machines. You got 3 figures in each capsule, and it cost 100 yen per turn of the magic wheel.
The other selling method was in tiny boxes (with three figures per box), but I believe that release style was less common, and based on images I've seen in a sort of catalogue (which I haven't been able to photograph though I want to) you could get the same variety of color types in the boxes except one (green, I think, was the missing one).
|Each gacha capsule came with this nifty folded pamphlet.|
|On the back are illustrations of 16 of the characters in the set.|
|And on the right inside flap, you've got illustrations of the other five, as well as the names of all 21 figures, So it's a nice reference.|
|Send more quarters - I mean paramedics!|
|Very similar to the Gargamel sofubi figure.|
|Nicely posed, detailed, and balanced figure.|
|We're going to gomu - clap - |
|Thingscaper. I like the different textures and levels of detail in the series. Gives it a nice variety.|
|I'm a comin' princess, but I've got problems of me own - and there's a sword growin' out me arm!|
|The rest of the creepy rabbit mannequin, for that segment of our readership. Toys are still perched on head. All very classy. It's just the way we roll.|
Have a great rest of the weekend!
