I don’t always understand Japan and the things they find cool over there. I don’t exactly understand these either, but I think these Gudetama World Tour figures are very cool. They feature Sanrio character Gudetama – a lazy egg basking in one sort of dish or another from around the world.
The ramen figure makes me want noodles something fierce. I especially like the one where the egg is dressed like Mr. Peanut complete with top hat and bow tie. There are eight different figures in all.
The catch is that they are blind-boxed so you don’t know what you will get. I always wonder why someone doesn’t open these blind box figures, mark them up a bit, and sell the exact ones geeks want to you. I guess it’s because collectables are worth more in unopened boxes, but I still find it odd. These goofy collectables are available at ThinkGeek for $10.99 each.
