    Double posting (same post in "New Buta" topic) to document the Gargamel collab with Mr. Ohashisan. If this isn't appropriate (it's not the traditional Gargamel Lucky Bag, but a collab), please let me know, and I'll glady delete. Thank you! :)

    Buta Gargamel "Zokki Kaiju" Lucky Bag sneak peek!

    *Book and GID figures confirmed by oha0884 on IG!
    *THANK YOU oha0884 for sharing your photos!

    Hot diggity doggies! Figures are GID! :razz::razz::razz:
    I love the fact that Mr. Ohashisan is using fabric as a medium for his art. Looks like for each snazzy cloth lucky bag (you can cut out and sew the critter to make a soft toy!!! :shock:), you get a book, button, and a full size figure! Wahoooo! :D:D:D:D:D

    p.s. I think Mr. O's Lucky Bags really makes you relive what childhood was like, when you got that special toy that your parents let you pick out at the dime store (yes, some of us are really that old! :lol:). These lucky bags are filled with the little extras, book (remember those tiny paper comic books that fit into a child's hands perfectly?) and button pin (something to wear on your favorite puffy kid's jacket), the sort of tiny surprises that spark that extra sense of joy in tiny tots. And, the interactive nature of making an extra toy from a cut-out paper stencil, is duplicated by leaps and bounds with the beautifully printed cotton fabric. Mr. O has really outdone himself, and set the bar higher when it comes to Lucky "Bags"! :)

    So those are buta/gargamel blind bags in a fabric bag!?!? :shock:
    The artwork is amazing. I'd love to see some cross pollination with the Gargamel bags.

    Yes! See those critters (i.e. the Zagoran) printed on each bag? They are actually a DIY plush toy! You cut on the dashed lines and you'll be left with a Zag body and the limbs. There should be a front and back side pieces for the body and limbs. Sew the two "faces" of the fabric together, and stuff with soft fluffy polyester, before sealing the fabric front/back sides. Assemble all of the parts and sew together to make a plush toy!!! So really, for each lucky bag, you are getting a plush toy, standard size toy, button, and book. That is a doozy of a lucky bag! :razz:

    The first Butanohana Lucky Bag released this year, was a larger cloth bag with cut outs to make a plush toy... see below
    I couldn't bring myself to cut the bag :oops:

    Butanohana/Gargamel lucky bags? Those look cool, but I can only imagine the pact you’d have to make with the Devil to actually get one. lol.

    I’ll be happy if we get regular lucky bags with maybe a painted version of the new Dokuroman, or maybe a new Micro sculpt.

    A slight derail, but I was thinking with all of Mr. O's bright colors and singular creativity, it would be out of this world if there were Buta Utsigyo Lucky Bags :razz:. Now wouldn't that be something!

    That zodiac looks like it might be the same vinyl as last year's unpainted zag?

    Man, that Zodiac is killer. 2021 is already looking better than 2020. Well, let's face it, 2021 doesn't have to be much to beat out 2020... It can just be a fire without the dumpster or vice versa.

    While the original zodiac vinyl color was fantastic, I really like this new vinyl color as well. It reminds me of a speckled light grey granite stone. Pretty cool.
