I saw this Dragon Quest figure collection at a convenience store this week. I love Dragon Quest and am looking very much forward to the first English release of Dragon Quest V. Most of the figures in this collection are from 4 and 5, so I had a good chance of getting a figure I wanted.
I really wanted to get the hero character from 5 that is featured on the box. What I did get was his father, “Papasu”.
The detail on the figure is really nice. I often wonder how these kinds of things are painted. Can a machine actually do this?
I spent a long time choosing which box I would buy. Not knowing what is inside can be tricky. I tried to find one that was heavier than the others. Some figures shown on the box are a lot smaller, so they must be lighter. Well when I opened my slightly heavier box I found this mysterious bag.
I wondered what might be inside, was it candy?
No it was just useless leftover plastic bits to make the box feel heavier. Damn you Square, and your trickery!
