Usually when I buy a gift, I’m just happy I was able to come up with something to give someone. I feel like with age, I’m getting worse at buying gifts for people. My wife on the other hand, she’s not only good at buying cool gifts, but she even goes the extra mile and throws in little things you wouldn’t think about. Case in point, attached to my Christmas gifts this year was a Mario Galaxy Star Bit charm for my DS (she picked a Red one, to match my Red/Black Lite) and this Nintendo mystery figure. This mystery figure is awesome, and I wish they were available domestically because I’d probably buy a bunch of them.
Each mystery egg comes in it’s own box (above) and is all wrapped up in foil. Removing the foil reveals a chocolate egg…
Once you unwrap the egg, it’s now time to crack it open.
As you can see, inside the chocolate egg is a red capsule, this is where the prize is. Also note that the inside of the chocolate egg is coated with white chocolate, making for a rather delicious treat if I do say so myself. Now it’s time to pop open the capsule, would could be inside?
Awesome, it’s Luigi! The fun of getting these things is that you don’t know what you’re going to get. Usually each figure requires a bit of assembly, which makes it fun to put the character together (even if it does take less than 30 seconds). So yeah, this thing is pretty awesome. Not only is there a delicious treat involved, but you get a cool figure with it too.
Hooray for odd inventions.
