    Will trade a glow or red Doragiras for Ebireon or Giant Gorilla.

    Lucky indeed, as I picked up those three for less than retail. I doubt Marusan will offer them for sale online, as they seem to be for events only using their gachapon machines. I dream of getting a painted version out of a machine some day, but doubt I will ever get the chance. Also, the person trying to sell some of those for super-inflated prices on YJA is just ridiculous.

    overseas sales for the Marugacha would be very welcome.

    I have always liked the little skeletonized guys, something Regency looking about them. Also loving these little netsuke shin-gojis!

    ^ There's no shortage of peculiar click-click toys out there, but the good folk at Panda No Ana really do both take and ice the cake.

    Yep, they have to be one of the more original toy makers in the Gachapon world, ever.
    If i lived in Japan, i'd have a big collection of their stuff - i know i would.

    Thanks for that headsup you two. Panda no ana. But now must decide; people inserting fingers series, or little animals barfing the rainbow? Def love the sumo birdies too!

    Nice, she really knows what she's doing. Is it my imagination or do these look more Chinese style/influence?

    Slightly, but each one of them is from Ukio-e prints for sure.

    I want to get naked and go swimming in gachapon. Does that make me strange :?:

    Agreed. They are probably one of my favorite gachapon makers.

    What I love about Gachapon is that it seems to be the realm of the risk-taker when it comes to toys. Items that are just so damn odd and funny that you would almost never see it packaged in a toy store, but because it's small and takes up almost zero space to display, package, and sell, you can just put it out there. Deep fried construction equipment? Sure! Rainbow-hued dogs pooping? You got it! Great national monuments doing silly things? You bet!!

    I love gachapon.

    I too love the Takara Panda’s Ana line of gachas. Had to pick this one up and take it along to the roadhouse for lunch last week...
