Funko Gashapons

Postby GuruGuy128 » Thu Aug 29, 2019 5:39 pm

It's a new type of collectibles called Paka Paka which are going to toys inside capsules, like the Japanese ones.

I don't know if this means we'll get funko in gachas at some point but I kinda would like to see some original lines too.

I can't wait until these are released and wonder how easy/hard it will be to find them. I'm excited about kawaii village, so cute.

Because they're not out yet, they just announced them.

In case anyone is wondering "Gacha" and :Gachapon" are also both correct

GS doesn't have the Funko ones yet, but some have the other branded stuff.

The hype of these comes from Japan. Whole stores will have row after row of toy machines, they're kinda like the toy machines you'd see at grocery stores where you'd get the one capsule with a random thing for 50 cents.

What I'm curious about is if there will be a way to buy entire cases... When I lived overseas, you could get an entire series case online without having to go through the pain of not knowing what capsule is going to come out, eliminating the possibility for dupes.

Will be interesting if this kicks off considering that Funko seems to be fighting for retail space in general, their displays are always getting adjusted.
