Sightings: cephalopod capsule toys by Takara/Tomy
March 1, 2010
Mr. Sardonicus sent me this sighting of a super-detailed line of Japanese gashapon (aka capsule toys).
Produced by Takara/Tomy, the complete set includes 10 figures (3 octopi, 2 cuttlefish, 4 squid, and 1 “secret” argonaut) and runs upwards of $75, but it’s not too difficult to find individuals being sold on eBay for $10 or less.
I’ll definitely have to keep an eye out for these. Thanks Brian!
