I loooooove capsule toys. Known in Japan as gashapon, these overpriced plastic trinkets can be found in every corner of my home. I have a miniature Sega console collection in a glass case. I decorated one of my bathrooms in Pokemon gashapon. I came home with a bag of them earlier this month after my trip to BitSummit.
And I have to have these new Street Fighter II ones, found on RocketNews24. The cast is bowing, begging for forgiveness on their hands and knees, dogeza style. I'm not sure why, but this is hilarious to me. Look at Dhalsim! Blanka is shocking from the pose alone!
Hachima Kikou says that these strap charm gashapon are coming to Japan later this July from Zarigani Works, priced at 300 yen (about $3) a piece.
