Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So I got into this nasty habit of buying Japanese blind trading figures. Similar to capsule toys, these are figures you buy in a small box, and you get a random figure. Usually there is a "chase" figure, which is a figure normally not listed on the box and worth more because they are more rare (sometimes there isn't even one in a case).
Well there is a set of these for Blue Dragon, and they have finally hit the import shops. I went to a local import toy store and bought the entire box (7 figures is all he had left). Well I ended up with the entire set except one, including doubles of the chase figure (which doesn't seem to be as rare in this set I guess).
On the very right you will see Zola, the mercenary/pirate character from the game. She isn't especially rare, they just happen to have been bought out of my box already before I got to it.
I have doubles of Nene (the bad guy with the purple dragon) and Marumaro (the cat-like guy).
Anyway, my question is, does anyone else collect these? Perhaps you would like to trade me Zola? I'm also interested in stories of other cool trading figures you have picked up, so that I may seek them out.
