ToaG: Luck Part 1 by TriaElf9 ToaG: Luck Part 1 by TriaElf9
So, not sure if many of you knows know what Gashapon is, but it's basically a capsule machine game thing. Like, imagine that you're putting in a quarter to get a gumball, but instead of a quarter, it's 2 dollars and instead of a gumball you get a toy. Now, you don't know what toy you'll get, so people like me can waste a lot of money at these things.

To cut the story short, they also have sticker versions where you can get sheets of stickers. The nice thing about the stickers is they're cheaper than normal capsule machines, and they stickers are put in order, so if you want all 4, you can just buy until you get them. I didn't know this at first, so I only got three in tokyo when there were 4 sets and my favorite character was on the 4th.

I was lucky enough to find this machine in Nagoya, so I went to try for the 4th set before work one day. This is what transpired.

To be continued on Wednesday.

Enjoy!

I used to get stuff from these things all the time. Man I remember when you could get really cool things for 50 cents now everything is between $1-$2. Oh well I still get stuff anyways on occasion. XD

Inflation is a giant jerk >_< Also,it depends on the thing, the new capsule stuff is really high quality, so some of it is worth 2$. Then again, some of it SOOO isn't ^_^;;;

Yeah the quality stuff I buy but when I look and it's $2 for some cheesy little toy car I wonder who is going to buy that when next to it are DBZ figurines at the same price. lol I guess it's like regular shopping.

I remember doing those capsule and sticker machines when I was young a lot. Always hated it when my parents wouldn't give me any quarters for it.
