Gargamel Lucky Bags 2009!!

Gargamel Lucky Bag 2009

I think Gargamel killed it this year with their Lucky Bags. What the heck are Lucky Bags? Every New Year, some Japanese toy makers sell blind "Lucky Bags" that are sealed and you don't really know what you're gonna get. I believe traditionally the intention is to get rid of older stock that didn't sell during the year. It's a Grab Bag. Some good stuff and some not so good stuff.

Bucking the tread is Gargamel who usually produces new toys or colorways specifically for their Lucky Bags. This year was no exception and i'm really glad that I was able to get one from Super7 today.

Joe trying to decide which one he wants. Joe has mad toy karma cause he chose a bag that contained a one-off Zag painted by Kiyoka! Yes, it's ok to hate him.

Here is one of the main reasons I purchased the Lucky Bag: Clear with gold fleck Gatchamecha with gold inner. Goldschlag anyone?

Thrashman in the same gold fleck clear vinyl. Note this is not the mini, but around 4inches tall and a bit more detailed.

And the big surprise which made the bag: Biskup Pocket Helper! Wowie!! Glenn noticed it's not the same clear purple color as previous Pocket Minis, but slightly more pink. Beautiful.

Where is this Super 7?! Is this a grab bag we can order online? How much do they cost?

You run a great blog, btw. Really great entries. ~Quincy

Thanks for reading Quincy!

Super 7 is located in San Francisco. their website is www.super7store.com check it out!

sadly they are sold out of the Gargamel Lucky Bags. There were very few and those sold out in minutes. $300 for the bag...

Damn... Gargamel really pulls through with good stuff. Apparently, so does Super 7. Congrats on your bags.

You ever buy direct from them, or is it always through Super 7? I've been to their (Gargamel's) site a couple of times and it's not very Anglo friendly... yet.

You going to the New York Comic Con or Toy Fair in Feb?
