For years I've been collecting miniature Japanese collectables called Omake.
These capsule toys were issued by sweet companies like Glico, Lotte and Morinaga.
Tracking down the exact toys you want is a time-consuming business and I have to be honest and admit I haven't found any more Project SWORD miniatures for at least 2 years, despite knowing there are more out there [I lost some Noppin auctions].
Anyways here are a few pictures of lots I saw this year which caught my eye.
This lot has a tiny LP-style raygun toting blue astronaut. There's also a small silver jetplane, which reminds me of the silver missile jets in the JR21 Submarine Aircraft Carrier [see labels at bottom]. There's also a pinky silver jetplane, which recalls a Mighty Jack rocketship [see labels].
What do you think?
Here's a lot containing a neat UFO. It looks like the central red ball spins. Overall it recalls the T in a Circle UFO toy as well [see labels].
Last is this lot. The blue capsule is pretty neat and it looks like there's a tiny astronaut in there too. the small yellow spinner next to it is cool too. It may be a spinner as well.
Do you like these Japanese miniatures? Are they like any miniatures you have in your country?
