Zelda Spirit Tracks Chocolate Egg
« on: May 31, 2011, 04:39:25 AM »

James.C treats himself to a delicious Zelda-themed snack.

As some people may remember from a previous blog entry, I'm a self confessed Gachpon addict, no matter how many little toys, mobile phone accessories and figurines I have, I can't resist picking up any Nintendo themed one I pass by!

Today however I was passing through the chocolate and candies section of a local supermarket and saw a box with Link on the bottom shelf mixed in with other sweets. (cue Zelda "found secret" sound effect)

The box read "Zelda Spirit Tracks Figurine Collection - eleven characters plus 1 secret to collect! I looked on the back of the box and saw a cool looking Link and Zelda, how could I resist getting an awesome figurine and a delicious choclate snack?

As with any randomised thing, there is always some trepidation that I might get something crappy like Anjean, but I might get Link or a mini train! Oh the excitement,  let's see how it went:

Standard egg wrapping inside, a bit disappointing.

Chocolate is pretty good! Reminds me of "Kinder Surprise" chocolate.

Some assembly required.

Bah! I got Anjean - the only one of the eleven I didn't want!

On the back of the box there was a cut out token that allows entry to a competition to win some Wii or DS games, which unfortunately is just enough incentive for me to buy another one next week.

Dagnammit.

I just read that Kinder Surprises are illegal in the US due to their "choking hazard"!
It's not that hard to know when to stop eating  - it's when your teeth hit the plastic!  :P:


But seriously it's nice chocolate and it's usually the best thing about it to be honest, these toys have the potential to be the opposite however, emphasis on potential!! (stupid Anjean)


Now I'm on the prowl for Mario chocolate eggs. Dammit, now my range of collectables has increased yet again!


I'll keep you guys posted on if I get a better figure next time.

Oh wow, it's nice to see Furuta continuing with their Nintendo license! I collected the last series of New Super Mario Bros Wii gachpons because they featured the first ever commercial figurines of Bowser's kids, Iggy, Roy and Larry to be exact. I was so hoping they'd release a second series with the rest of them, but they never came...

I love capsule collecting or I guess you calling it gachpons but it sounds to be the same.  Though being here in the states their really isn't any and that is very good for my wallet but if I ever actually visit japan... yeah... what strange looks I get as a bag full of little random figurines goes through security and the stares I get from my Wife...

Are they looks of jealousy!?

I remember seeing blogs about those but never saw them in the wild, but I'm always on the lookout!
