Got Me My Lucky Gachapon One Piece mini Ships!

While we were working on the exhibition installation in Taipei, I became somewhat upset at Maibelle this one night for some reason that I no longer recall.  To appease this big child who was pouting while carrying a few gallons of paint inside his backpack (They were heavy! Of course I had to pout!), she decided to give me some coins so I can try out my luck on this gachapon machine inside a FamilyMart that we happened by on the way.

 

“I want that yellow submarine!” I whined, pointing to the picture of Heart Pirates’ submarine, “but actually, I’d take any of the six ships OTHER than the marine ship, it’s ugly!”  (Yah, you should’ve heard me, i was pathetically childish and bratty!)

 

 

So I tried my luck… and the excitement built as I put in more coins (ALL of our coins, evenutally, actually),  wishing for a different ship other than the marine ship

 

 

If I recalled correctly, I managed to get all 5 SD ships that I wanted in this order:

 

Laboon ラブーン the scarred black whale of West Blue
Whitebeard Pirates’ main flagship Moby Dick
Heart Pirates’ yellow submarine
Straw Hat Pirates’ Going Merry
Straw Hat Pirates’ Thousand Sunny (サウザンドサニー号, Sauzando Sanī-gō)

 



 

Do I have enough coins to go on?

 

OK one last one!  YES!!! I got my Straw Hat Pirates’ Thousand Sunny (サウザンドサニー号, Sauzando Sanī-gō)!!!

 

And it worked out exactly the way I wanted to!!!

 

 

OOOOPS!  I was wrong!  Just checked my gachapon progress pics that I took, the correct order was actually:

 

Whitebeard Pirates’ main flagship Moby Dick
Straw Hat Pirates’ Going Merry
Laboon ラブーン the scarred black whale of West Blue
Heart Pirates’ yellow submarine
Straw Hat Pirates’ Thousand Sunny (サウザンドサニー号, Sauzando Sanī-gō)

 

 

So there we have it, what luck eh? Though on hindsight, perhaps I should’ve gone for another ship (but we were totally out of $ cuz we spent every coin we had on these…) and who knew with my kind of luck that night I might have just gotten a complete set!

 

Alas~ and here’s your chance to get your very own (and BIGGER) One Piece pirate ships from Tofufu~
