We have been picking up these little characters over a couple of years now, some we found in LA and others we bought in Tokyo. The thing is, you get teased by all the different ones in the cabinets, but you can't choose which one you want. You have to buy a sealed box and it is pot luck what is inside ! We haven't been disappointed in what we have so far, and luckily we have not duplicated any ! Some of them came from Kidrobot, they also have plain ones from Munnyworld that you can paint and decorate yourself.
