2014 Calbee Series 2 Prizes!

This year's Calbee release includes random, pretty rare prize redemption cards that net you a couple gifts. Series 1 featured the 2013 Rookies of the Year, but Series 2 just appears to feature a couple stars.
 The package includes a card holder with a 2014 designation. Other than the front, the cover is plain; inside are enough spots to hold the full series set. The Series 1 and Series 2 binders are identical.
 The cards use a magic-motion effect on the front, similar to Sportsflix/Sportsflics. The backs are pretty plain and look almost like the backs of IC cards.
Cards are numbered sequentially continuing the first series' numbering.

I pulled my Series 1 prize redemption card from a pack/back of chips, but I just bought the redemption card for Series 2 from a store in Nagoya at a pretty good price. I'm curious what Series 3 will feature now!

Disney Film Collection Gachapon Figurines

Last year, a six-series set of Disney animated film figurines was released and distributed through the gacha-gacha vending machines. Each figurine comes with a "film cell" frame. With seven figures in each of the six series, there are 42 total figurines to collect. As of this writing, I am missing only one - Alice from Alice in Wonderland, from the third series. I thought I had a full set but I might be mistaken as I can't seem to find Alice.

I won't be able to show them all to you assembled, because for now I'm keeping them inside their packages. But each figurine comes with a long slip of paper that, among other things, advertises all the different versions in that series. So you can see what they look like by enlarging the photos below. Note that if you right-click on an image and open it in a new tab, you can usually zoom in even closer than just clicking on the image normally.

I've been on vacation for the past week, so this and all the other posts from the past 9 or so days were all written at once! Marathon post writing is exhausting...

Set Gallery: 2014 BBM Dancing Heroine "Mai"

I brought you the gallery for this year's Hana set, so here is this year's Mai set. As before, I've included a scan of the back of the first card for each team, so you can see if they have casual clothes or a different uniform. Enjoy!
