The Revoltech box is to

The Revoltech box is to store spare pieces and accessories you might have from your Revoltech figures. It seems pretty useful for the standard figures like Gurren Lagann or any of the Macross Valkyries, but I don't know why they included one with Gloomy Bear... Kind of an odd choice.

I thought about that, but it seems that the box is too small and the cover too flimsy to store most accessories, aside from fists and the like. Who knows..

Well,I was half joking,but

Well,I was half joking,but to be honest it does have that stupid "cute but adult" vibe like a lot of those people are into. Like Happy Tree Friends,or those "ugly dolls" (is that what they're called?) and so forth.
Something just rubs me the wrong way about this type of thing,and in fairness,it's really not the toys themselves,it's certain members of the "community."
Eh,I guess it's just not my thing.

I have a lot of friends

I have a lot of friends still in high school who are girls and simply LOVE all of those things. Plush Ugly Dolls, Domo keychains, Gloomy Bear stuff, etc. I guess it's just not really the sort of products that's aimed at the same people who buy Chogokins or vinyl pieces as much, huh?

From what I heard the

From what I heard the container might be not necessarily for the accesories, but for the coins so you don't lose them until you get enough of them to pick up a mail-away item you pay with them for.

Just like I fell for the Yotsuba Revoltech I fall for this, this toys so adorable and cool. I'm not a fan of Happy Tree Friends happy violent cute characters, but this is completely different style despite some theme similarities. Totally want this one :)

Nice

Well as I don't really agree that this is 'hipster' so to speak; I don't think that is really the word for it, the sort of stylized things like this never really sparked much interest in me.
This design however is actually quite nice I absolutely HATE the Happy Tree Friends and all that jazz that the kiddies were into and I actually kinda get why that sort of thing would be called hipster.

I have seen Gloomy bear merch around and never knew where it was from haha I guess I might check out the videos at some point.
