It wasn’t too long ago when I was collecting 7-11 stamps for the One Piece figurines. After a short break, we’re already back on it! This time it’s the Hello Kitty 40th anniversary collection. Well, we say Hello Kitty, but it actually includes Sanrio characters of all sorts.
The picture above only shows about half of the whole collection. More toys will be released in mid-January! This event is a pretty lengthy one.
Luckily, I’m not really that into Sanrio… except for this one character. (How can you resist him? He’s just too cute!) So here I am, collecting away again just to get three out of the 30 toys that will eventually be released. The good news is, our whole bunch of kids at work are also collecting together, and we each have our own characters that we like. We’re pretty much a communist bunch – just group up and share.
Stamps work the same way as the previous campaign. From what I’ve heard though, this collection probably won’t be worth as much as the previous One Piece collection. 7-11 comes out with Sanrio characters all the time, but One Piece was a really special thing for Hong Kong. The (unofficial) prices skyrocketed with those toys!
