A Look At My Gashapon Collection

Figurines and CollectiblesYujin. It’s a name synonymous with Japanese gashapon (capsule) toys, not surprisingly because they are one of the top producers of capsulte toys in Japan.

I came across this interesting interview article on Pingmag which sheds some light on Yujin and the capsule toy development process.

Being a bit of a gashapon collector myself, my collection of made-by-Yujin gashapon includes my entire Mario Kart and Animal Crossing figurines as well as my Twilight Princess and Phantom Hourglass figurines. The following are pictures of my collection:

So, where do I get all these? I usually purchase them online, at Play-Asia. Head over to the Toys section and proceed to the Gashapon / Capsule Toys sub-section and you’ll find a variety of collections available for purchase.

These usually sell out pretty fast, so be sure to subscribe to Nine Over Ten 9/10 for highlights or reviews of my collections.
