I know this is kinda long overdue but I’ve still managed to take some time off in doing this article about these babies I purchased when I first got to discover the first wave of toy shops inside the 168 Mall in Divisoria. Upon seeing this particular corner shop I thought was already the place my friend told me where he bought this fairly big Astro Boy figure for Php 400 (around $9.00), but it turned out that it was just only one of the many toy shops thriving inside the establishment.
Pressed for time and all, I never wanted to leave the place without having to get myself some sort of “souvenir” as a token of my success in finding my first toy shop. So I began looking for something to buy among their goods on display, until I narrowed down my choices to two replica anime figures.
First up, I saw this nice gun-toting Bulla (Bra) bootleg figure from Dragon Ball Z and the shop was selling it for only Php 50 ($1.00 something), though it may be a replica but I love how the miniature figure was finely made. My second choice was this “chibi-ala-ragnarok” inspired figure of Yuna from Final Fantasy X. It is so small yet very cute, and getting it for only Php 40 (almost $1.00), it was surely a good find. I picked up the two figures from the display rack and handed over the money to the friendly Chinese lady shopkeeper tending the place and went home feeling like a winner!
