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.
Josh handing out the Lucky Bag goodness.
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's Joe's Lucky Bag.
Painted Black Zag in Thrashout Colorway
Here is one of the main reasons I purchased the Lucky Bag: Clear with gold fleck Gatchamecha with gold inner. Goldschlag anyone?
Gargamel's brand new wolf monkey mini: Rokoron. Beautiful
Clear green Deathra. What's not to like?
Thrashman in the same gold fleck clear vinyl. Note this is not the mini, but around 4inches tall and a bit more detailed.
Painted crouching mini zag. Love this little guy.
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.
Some other goodness spied at S7 today:
Clear Zombie Commander
Giant Ceramic Cumberlain by Muntiki. Wild!
