Phantom Hourglass gashapon does not help our financial situation

You'll have to forgive us me for making two Phantom Hourglass-related posts in the same day (it's like Zelda week all over again), but these capsule toys are irresistibly cute -- yes, possibly even cuter than this. Unfortunately, at just $3 a piece from Play-Asia, they also happen to be irresistibly cheap, a combination that does not mix well when you're a financially impoverished blogger, already reduced to a scurvy-inducing diet of noodles and water for the rest of December.

Which gashapon you receive is entirely random, though as they're all pretty fantastic (and did we mention cheap?), we can't see a lot of people complaining. Not when we'll happily take any like-for-likes you receive off your hands. We're kind like that, you see.

Damn, another purchase of goodies :) I also grabbed a black and pink Hori Pen. One for me (replace white one) and one for my girlfriend. Oh and I got 3 of these little buggers...

Damn, these are awesome. I ordered 7. My girlfriend should be happy with the spare ones not forming my set, right?

I ordered a set of 5, hoping to get all unique characters. Definitely open for a trade on any doubles!

Oh my lucky day. I have 5.91 to spare so I just picked one up. Hopefully I will be able to pick up the others sometime soon.

Why am I such a sucker for figurines and toys! I guess it's compensating for a childhood where I... had tons of toys but just wanted more? Double blast!
These are just so adorable, but compared to the FF remake figurines, I just want link and zelda here, I'll cry if i get a Phantom :'(
Still, good excuse to get some more FFIV figurines, hoping to complete the set :)

Good times. Good good times....
