I love, love gachapon. The lovely, colorful, satisfying little capsules, the neat variety of things, figures, or characters you can collect, all the stuff they can be, whether original or based on something existing, the satisfying crank, and the thrill of the mystery of what you are going to get plus the collectable nature appeals to me greatly. Here is a thread to show your gachapon finds or collections IRL or talk about games with gachapon collecting (not the microtransaction kind, think about free in-game mechanics or collectables along the lines of something like collecting various Sega figures in Shenmue or getting new Yo-Kai in the Yo-Kai Watch series via a gachapon machine). Also, as someone who would like to collect more of them, what are some cool IRL places, be it in the US or Japan, as good destinations for gachapon machines, and what are some cool sets you may not own but want? Discuss away!
I would like to collect more and have few sadly despite my immense love of them because I’ve rarely encountered them in the wild. The only one I really have is this one of Umaru-chan playing a PSP I love.
