It's certainly a relief to be opening up some keshi mail, that's for sure! Between this terrible weather and this flu bug that just won't go away, you gotta' take the small things in life that make you happy and just run with them. Spring is on it's way, someday I hope, and I'm finally feeling better, so I hope that leaves the rest of the year open for some awesome keshi happenings.
I made a trade with Little Weirdos on the forums lately and I pleasantly received the package today. So, let's dive in and take a look!
I do have some big packages on their way, but sometimes it's not always the giant baggies of figures that make your day. Today, in this package, was all about getting my first Slimy Sludge minifigure! FINALLY! I know they are probably loaded in everyone else's Toys R'Us or wherever, but I've yet to find one anywhere close to me, and I've almost sucked it up and bought one way-overpriced on the secondary market, just to finally have one. Luckily, it didn't go to that and my cool trade bud supplied with that awesome purple guy in the top left corner.
Not seen in the picture is the baggie of green slime that was included in the package as an awesome extra. It was certainly a pleasant surprise. I can understand where many people would throw it away eventually, once the gimmick wore out it's welcome, but it works out in my favor it didn't go that way this time.
Also in the package was this Oh-No Alien figure slotted there in the top right. He's a pretty cool guy, and my first Oh-No Alien. To my knowledge, he's from a gumball machine line here in the States that would be the closest thing coming to traditional Japanese gashapon keshi, at least one of them. This guy is surprisingly chunky and solid. I'm impressed for sure! You know how I like to support gumball workers, so I'll certainly have to be hunting for more of these alien guys.
Green plastic dinosaur! Classic! Maybe the same you used to chew on as a kid.
Finally, it's a little black bendy tree ent from a line I'm not familiar with. Regardless, he's very cool and will fit in just fine with the crew.
And that's the haul today, guys! A little small this go around, but no bad eggs, so that's awesome! All these guys are going right on my keshi shelves and that goo is likely to be dropped and stained into the floor very soon. Just like old times!
As always, thanks for stopping by!
