モーニング娘。キャラクターマスコット なかよしバージョン。

These Momusu mascot figures arrived a few days ago from Ohta's eBay store where you can find a lot of great H!P items including some really rare items. I love collecting figures and I thought that these were really cute cartoon like versions of the group.

A good thing about the packaging is that it's the type where the backing slides right out so the figures can be removed without damaging the packaging. The backs of the cards include a brief profile of each member including birthdate, blood type, and special skills and interests. And when it comes to figures I have to take them out of their packaging as for me the whole point in owning them is to display them. I don't ever intend to sell any of my figures so I figure it's best to enjoy them rather than keep them sealed in storage. In particular the Kaorin, Nacchi, Gocchin, Rikachan, Aibon, and Konkon mascot figures have the best resemblance of those members. All of them are actually quite amusing to look at. It's Momusu animated! 

This 13 figure set matches up perfectly to my cardboard stand up from Kaorin to Gakisan while Kei and Gocchin are to the left…to the left… to the left to…to the left. Beyonce moment. :) 

However they match up perfectly with my 13 mini Momusu figure set which I bought from Cdjapan a few years ago. These "mini" figures are now the giants next to the even smaller mascot figures. It's like one big happy family! Now all I need is for them to release figures of Gen. 6 through 8.

    I saw those on Ohta's store, but didn't really know what to expect if I bought them, so I didn't buy them XD. They look really cool now that I can see them close-up, though! I'm jealous…

  3. xmangerm thanks! I have a collecting problem as I keep getting them and I don't have much space to display them left. lol. But I'm going to keep buying them and in early October I have 2 larger ones that will arrive. May be time to check into collector's anonymous. 😛

  4. Hotaru I noticed that Ohta has another set for sale on his site that he put up right after I bought it. I wonder where he gets all of these rare H!P items. He has a lot of CDs on his site right now including some first press editions which is really great. It's good that fans who are trying to get older releases can find them easily there and his prices are very reasonable and in fact a lot of them are lower than what I would have expected.
