The above video is the first part a brand new series over at the Zelda Dungeon YouTube Channel. Each week, or perhaps every other week, I will be showcasing an item or group of items from my Legend of Zelda collection. I have quite a bit of material to go through, so I imagine this will in fact go on for at least several months. I look forward to showing you all some cool stuff.
For this particular video, I am showcasing the Yujin Phantom Hourglass Figurines, or Gashapan. The complete set includes all 5 figurines shown in the video. Each of the figurines is roughly 1 1/2 – 2 inches in height with small accessory pieces that are detached from the actual stand.
Price: $25 – $30 for the Full Set
While the figurines had cost only 200yen at release, (about $2.50 a piece), they are no longer in production and you must purchase them second hand if you’d like them. Fortunately they are quite common and haven’t gone up to much in price. I’ve seen listings for $15-$20, but with shipping costs it pushes up the price. There often times aren’t auctions for these things so we have to settle for higher Buy-It-Now prices. You can take a look at eBay if you are interested in purchasing this item.
So what do you think about this new series? Is this something you’d like to see more of in the future? What about the actual figurines? Does anybody out there own these little toys? Is it something that you’d want to add in your collection? Is it worth the $25? Let us know what you think by posting in the commons below.
