These Gashapon are part of the Kirby Muteki! Suteki! Closet line. It exists of Kirby in different costumes. The line is also in cute pastel colours.
5 Gashapon figures are in this set; Kirby (Candy), Kirby (Gunman), Character Costume (King Dedede), Character Costume (Magolor) and sleepy Kirby. Each character comes in a little plastic bag inside a Gashapon ball.
I got 2/5.
Character Costume (King Dedede)
Kirby is wearing King Dedede’s iconic hat and holding his mallet. He looks happy. The branding is on his back, and reads in raised font: © N / H T-ARTS VIETNAM.
Character Costume (Magolor)
Kirby is wearing Magolor’s iconic outfit. The branding is on his back, and reads in raised font: © N / H T-ARTS VIETNAM.
I love the classic Kirby games so newer stuff rarely grabs me. But this little set had a gunman in it, which reminds me of the Quick Draw mini-game, so I wanted to try and get him.
When I saw an independent business that imports Japanese goods, going to Japan for some personal shopping, I tried my luck and got 2 of these, hoping for the gunman. Unfortunately, I did not get him. I would have been ok with the Candy and Sleepy Kirby, but I ended up with the 2 costume characters I wanted the least of the set. Oh well.
I’m happy to trade these though, so if anyone has the gunman for me let me know!
The figures themselves are nice though. The pastel colours are cute and the detail on them is very nice and they feel like good quality.
If you like Kirby or Gashapon you’ll love these little figurines.
Got any more details / information you think I should add? Or did I get something wrong? Do you own these figures? Do you agree or disagree with my findings? Let me know in the comments below!
