Gashapon! Capsule Toy
Posted 9/14/09 , edited 9/14/09

@ Wiki
Gashapon (ガシャポン?) or gachapon (ガチャポン?), also referred to as "capsule toy", is a Japanese onomatopoeia, made up of two sounds: "gacha" for the turning of a crank on a toy vending machine, and "pon" for the sound of the toy capsule dropping into the receptacle. It is used to describe both the machines themselves, and any toy obtained from them.




I love those peek a pooh ones or the disney couple ones
I'm trying to collect the disney ones right now =3``
They're usually cost around $2-5 :]

Anyways...

Do you guys like to collect any Capsule Toy? ^^

They always end up breaking after a few weeks =/

I also get frustrated when the machine only accepts one particular coin and I don't have the coin it accepts -_-

I don't collect the toys but once in a while I'll buy one.

THAT'S SO COOL.

I could just go to one of those stores and spend hours there, and hundreds of dollars.

Wait... do they have to be in capsules? At the last anime con I went to, they had little boxes, and you'd get a random figure each time.
I bought a few.
