I was cruising on the line and stumbled across these adorable little toys, which I totally want for my collection. The Godzilla Toho Monsters Press Conference toys from BANDAI are a line of figurines that are designed to go into the capsules of gachapon vending machines. Is it wrong of me to want to fly to Japan just to buy toys out of vending machines?
These adorable little figurines are Godzilla, Mechagodzilla, Ghidorah and Hedorah, all of whom stand before a podium and all but one bow in deep and formal regret for the destruction they’ve visited upon Japan. Yeah Hedorah doesn’t bow, he’s a jerk.
You can read the press release here.
It’s possible you can preorder the keychains here. But since I’m a little ways out from payday I haven’t tested this theory yet.
Or you can order them from Amazon.com. They are listed under Toys and Games and apparently distributed by Nintendo. They’re a bit pricy but less so than flying to Japan for the sole purpose of getting them from a vending machine.
Below are the Amazon links:
Sorry my Godzilla friends, at the time of this publishing they were out of the Godzilla one. Normally I wouldn’t publish two articles in one day because I don’t have a lot of time to blog but because this item appears to be selling out fast I’m going to so you have a chance at getting them. May the odds ever be in your favor. 😉
