Can any Gashapon be any greater than Sailor Moon themed Gashapon!?

Unfortunately, I didn’t roll these babies out myself from the actual Gashapon machine. But that’s okay, since I tend to have terrible luck and get 3-4 of the same ones repeatedly. I came across these being sold in a set in the ‘related section’ while looking for Sailor Moon x Anna Sui limited edition items on Ebay. As you can see, I had to have it.

I love compact mirrors and I like making a habit of changing them so these are cute. These also work out nicely as decoration for a room, desk or whatever you fancy. The size of the actual mirror is not exactly ideal, but I think it was designed pretty well considering Gashapon sizes. They’d make great gifts and compacts for little girls(or boys) being the perfect size for kids.

The quality of the whole mirror set was pretty good and acceptable for price for these. They are made of a simple sturdy plastic with good tightened flap mechanism. But, there are inconsistencies since the flap on the Cosmic Heart Compact was loose and there’s no way to tighten it. All the mirrors came with the standard peel seal protection which is a nice touch. Most compact mirrors nowadays have this seal but for a 300 Yen product, that’s a nice detail to keep.

The only compact that I doubt I’ll ever pull out is the Rainbow Chalice Compact. The mirror is minuscule in an oval shape of around 1.18inches x 1.02inches/3cm x 2.6cm (Height x Width).

Here is the label in the capsule which I have scanned:

Luna & Artemis – This one is my favourite with the colour contrast.

What it looks like when you open it. Only one picture here since all the black ones basically have the same shape:

This is roughly what the sizes are in the palm of a hand (Below).
