Pre-owned Non-genre Mixed Grab Box S Size For Boys & Girls

MaakieMaakie1 anno/i faLoot
I managed to get a non-genre mixed grab box in the most recent round! So far these type of boxes seemed to have the weirdest items inside, so I was very curious to what I would receive (be it good or bad)!

The box

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-KYr9ZjEi2HQ/VlLlnB-iyXI/AAAAAAAAEU8/78y09pxK5GQ/s912-Ic42/IMG_8724.JPG

Everything was shipped in a small box with less paper than I am used to with this shop. Also, of course, the cute card is there!

What's inside the box?

Let's go to the most interesting part right away: the contents! I'll look at the items one by one.

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-3xUvwQRDLeU/VlLlnT565vI/AAAAAAAAEVA/5a2s2f82tGc/s720-Ic42/IMG_8725.JPG

The first thing I grabbed out of the box was...this ITEM #370012 . Oh boy, this promises something for the other items I will find inside. Not that I have something against Donald Duck, oh no, my boyfriend and I love him! But it's just...not a good sign to get something like this from an anime/Japanese hobby store's grab box...

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-Iykb4uWpVPU/VlLln31Ix0I/AAAAAAAAEVI/T15r_y2Jy2Q/s720-Ic42/IMG_8727.JPG

Then an key cover from the Monster Hunter character Liolaeus ITEM #370013 . I remember in my previous (and also first) non-genre grab box blog/22305 I also got Monster Hunter items.

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-9o19nU3PCVc/VlLloYMeYeI/AAAAAAAAEVM/ODv6nJm1vAk/s720-Ic42/IMG_8728.JPG

Then an...uh, an item that really confused me when I picked it out of the box. It looks like just some sort of small fabric with a sheep on it? After some research I found out it's a mobile cleaner (I'm just used to having items like this being on some sort of strap): ITEM #279298

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-gC44WmiOApk/VlLlpOHlsQI/AAAAAAAAEVc/FfDAalw-0M0/s720-Ic42/IMG_8729.JPG

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-oLIU4xW0Q4A/VlLlp1DKJtI/AAAAAAAAEVo/Y9xmaXQfn-c/s720-Ic42/IMG_8731.JPG

Looks like Youkai Watch items are going to be in this box too again! This is a lucky charm for someone who's birthday is on the 9th of september? ITEM #370014

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-IuDr5gyNjrg/VlLlqepJVEI/AAAAAAAAEVw/3D74WrDXtm0/s720-Ic42/IMG_8732.JPG

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-g_mbsQe-Exg/VlLlq-UgDeI/AAAAAAAAEV4/QboZgQMUxDU/s720-Ic42/IMG_8733.JPG

I don't know if this was by accident, but I got the same one in a lighter shade of blue ITEM #370015 too! Makes me wonder if they really have one for each day of the year???

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-FzsytM1FkTs/VlLlrcxaUSI/AAAAAAAAEWA/_6IT95W-L1I/s720-Ic42/IMG_8734.JPG

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-iCZdIjOqSW8/VlLlrpJLDPI/AAAAAAAAEWI/dWnLgmDHKcI/s912-Ic42/IMG_8736.JPG

Continuing with the "weird items in non-genre-boxes" trend, here is a strap from Happy Tree Friends ITEM #370086 ! I didn't even know people in Japan knew about this stuff? Even more funny is that the first thing I thought about when I saw this strap was this videos and the guy's reaction to Happy Tree Friends: View spoilerHide spoiler



I always have to laugh too when the old guy starts laughing like crazy at 0:37. xD


https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-CU9LHz9qKzg/VlLlspS0m0I/AAAAAAAAEWY/H0CGBVTW8Sc/s912-Ic42/IMG_8738.JPG

Oh wow, another one of those erasers. How many does AmiAmi still have of these?! Still, I didn't get the taiyaki one yet, this one has very nice detailing. The best looking one I've seen from the set so far. Since I'm not into collecting/using these erasers, I think I'll gift it to someone.

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-Tm5M_Go4lcg/VlLltPTfzuI/AAAAAAAAEWg/GDvU3tIrmUI/s720-Ic42/IMG_8739.JPG

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-f2Te1JYj2uk/VlLltb7IQII/AAAAAAAAEWo/_2EjK0Hewq4/s720-Ic42/IMG_8740.JPG

Oh man, I remember seeing this one in DARKMEWSIC 's blog with her horrible grab box sorry. Anyway I got a green one ITEM #370087 , which I guess is better than a pink one...?

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-2eMKAG0gCq8/VlLlve6j-DI/AAAAAAAAEW8/oncUMDZTZKc/s912-Ic42/IMG_8742.JPG

A deadly Seven Sins item also pops up in this box! I got Hawk ITEM #294635 in my previous grab box blog/25493 , now I got Arthur ITEM #294642 ! I just finished watching this series a few days ago and to be honest I feel like I don't know enough about this character yet. It was quite rushed how he came into the series and with not much explanation.

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-gGCbAz4S_tc/VlLlv9t5VMI/AAAAAAAAEXE/xg8m4TXRiI4/s720-Ic42/IMG_8743.JPG

This huge item turns out to be...a pen ITEM #370090 ?! Not very easy to use I can imagine, but it looks very nice!

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-_t5znQkw10c/VlLlwE77eaI/AAAAAAAAEXI/VY5CCgACClM/s912-Ic42/IMG_8744.JPG

Then more Youkai Watch items! Four pretty big and heavy straps, they come in weird packaging...I wonder if they were some sort of special release or bonus? ITEM #370098 , ITEM #370099 , ITEM #370100 and ITEM #370101

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-yVeI2PQ1_m8/VlLlyJwJHpI/AAAAAAAAEXc/jfMRFJWqZgM/s912-Ic42/IMG_8747.JPG

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-AYhjKNTxzMA/VlLlwUipJQI/AAAAAAAAEXM/0gJ4dg_92yo/s912-Ic42/IMG_8746.JPG

Followed by a blind trading figure box from the Toy Story Re-Ment set! As with every Re-Ment, the detail quality is very high! I got the set with the alien pizza, hot dog, menu-card and milkshake ITEM #319018 .

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-AkY8SuXAwf4/VlLlyUIaQxI/AAAAAAAAEXg/uImwlDkMttY/s720-Ic42/IMG_8748.JPG

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-Lcg80zwzbGY/VlLlyhdhhUI/AAAAAAAAEXk/F0Z0068R6VI/s720-Ic42/IMG_8749.JPG

Then there was this notepad with Articuno. Considering my boyfriend loves the legendary birds, I showed this happily to him, followed by his reponse "eh, I don't like the artstyle". WELL THEN, NO GIFT FOR YOU. ITEM #370102

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-_gBeJbZQsa4/VlLl1uGpFuI/AAAAAAAAEYE/kfqxHlwlWJs/s912-Ic42/IMG_8751.JPG

More notepads! These are from Dragon Quest: ITEM #370330 & ITEM #370331

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-N6ugH3RHqb4/VlLl1_v1wII/AAAAAAAAEYI/OCuMs0Y9Y_o/s720-Ic42/IMG_8755.JPG

Maybe I should have put this crazy face in a spoiler.

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-AHbKnqSwZMY/VlLl2VX3LEI/AAAAAAAAEYM/dOqZ2TMaA8I/s720-Ic42/IMG_8756.JPG

Oh...my...god...what?! This thing is the stuff from nightmares! I thought Bastard!! was a series with pretty girls! Luckily this figure was already in the database, so I didn't have to do some research on this ITEM #101264 and could quickly move on to the next item.

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-pWWbhMdetgU/VlLl4yVwXGI/AAAAAAAAEYw/CRmP0dlYJ0Y/s912-Ic42/IMG_8761.JPG

Interesting, I got this play mat before: ITEM #319314 Because AmiAmi is not allowed to sell them, I think we will continue to see these play mats for a long, looong time in grab boxes!

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-1bPOD8Ngndc/VlLl57oyCaI/AAAAAAAAEY8/hm2ekS6B5_Y/s912-Ic42/IMG_8762.JPG

Oh, I never saw this strap series before, that's a funny art style! I got lucky and got Kusanagi Motoko herself ITEM #212149 ! View spoilerHide spoilerMORO , maybe you want this? Just shoot me an PM and I'll send it over to you!

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-sf6UCHnLN1o/VlLmgwhKgTI/AAAAAAAAEas/lsnZDfJWTlk/s912-Ic42/IMG_8763.JPG

It's raining Nanatsu no Taizai (the Seven Deadly Sins) items in these grab boxes? Was the series so badly received in Japan? Anyway, another strap from this set, I got Diane ITEM #253818 in an earlier grab box blog/22305 and now I got Ban ITEM #253815 !

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-xERvwtVkr2o/VlLl7yXiNwI/AAAAAAAAEZM/0bcLHQT0fP0/s912-Ic42/IMG_8765.JPG

I was screaming when I picked this one out of the box! I saw someone else getting a Re-Ment of Gudetama, which made me wish for anything Gudetama in this box...and yes! I got lucky and also got a Re-Ment set! I got the spaghetti with salad-set. I just love Gudetama so much! From the first time I saw this character I fell in love with it and I have been on the edge of buying Gudetama merchandise so much (especially keychains), but in the end never did...now I have this cute minature ITEM #301527 !

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-wBg5psVFDFM/VlLl8Rl_9QI/AAAAAAAAEZU/7wndlmVEjy0/s912-Ic42/IMG_8766.JPG

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-5HqqzJ5Qylo/VlLl9LKB7YI/AAAAAAAAEZg/W8iAQQ8_LyM/s720-Ic42/IMG_8768.JPG

Well, that is interesting. At first I thought it was an oversized Storm Trooper chesspiece, but it turns out that this is a stamp with ink ITEM #255446 . This thing is huge!

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-bESM63X7TqY/VlLl-YUvxPI/AAAAAAAAEZo/0_Cx_-ENoVM/s912-Ic42/IMG_8770.JPG

After getting ITEM #267654 in an earlier box blog/24573 , now I got ITEM #267648 from this set! It's a bit of a weird item, considering it's a waste to use it as a coaster, but it's way too big as a strap. Luckily it comes with a display stand!

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-oNRLu1G6QF4/VlLl_iFe04I/AAAAAAAAEZ0/Ahdka_iCUpc/s912-Ic42/IMG_8771.JPG

Now for another weird item...this is a 3D puzzle to make a dummy doll? After some searching I found out it's the Copy Robot from the series Perman ITEM #224253 , never heard of that series before. It's quite old?

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-lMpQsGP5GgA/VlLmhL0KVkI/AAAAAAAAEa0/8ex78NwohUY/s912-Ic42/IMG_8772.JPG

This character looked vaguely familiar to me at first. It turns out he's Azazel ITEM #68719 , where I've heard of the series' name, but never watched it. Also this figure is big, heavy and nicely detailed! I thought it was a prize figure!

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-q9owsS5Hpks/VlLmAbPlz2I/AAAAAAAAEZ4/LJrE5CBBzO4/s912-Ic42/IMG_8773.JPG

As final and biggest item, there was this Danboard re-usable shampoo/soap bottle ITEM #370670 at the bottom of the box! A pretty cool item, but I would be too scared of damaging it if I would use it!

The complete loot

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-kwYaGqRQwPw/VlLmCSlNOGI/AAAAAAAAEaI/GwiAXP0gXPY/s720-Ic42/IMG_8775.JPG

Especially with the bigger items, the full contents of this box are quite impressive!

Final Thoughts

Even though this box had it's fair share of really weird items, the less weird items in this one were really good and made up for it! Doesn't that come pretty close to how a grab box would be? A few really good items and the rest is "crap" to fill up the rest? Haha! Anyway, we shouldn't forget about the real star of this box:

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-HWI2NFaSgUU/VlLmE-94xmI/AAAAAAAAEaY/jd2z5vUrRgk/s912-Ic42/IMG_8779.JPG

Why I love Gudetama so much I don't even know how to explain, he's just so cute.

FAQ Grab boxes Please read the FAQ before replying or sending me an PM!
View spoilerHide spoilerFAQ #1
What is a grab box?
An box with mystery items. Depending on the store you can get all sorts of items. With people interested in figures/anime/gaming the most popular boxes come from AmiAmi, J-List and Tokyo Otaku Mode, This blog is from one of AmiAmi's boxes.

FAQ #2
How can I get a grab box?
Grab boxes are insanely popular and you have to act quick if you see them in stock at the store of your choice. It is recommendable to put an alert for the item on the webshop, keep an eye out on their main page (most stores advertise them there) and/or follow the shop newsletter.

FAQ #3
How much shipping did you pay for the grab box?
With most boxes you pay high shipping. On AmiAmi boxes you generally pay 2-3x the amount of the value on the box and that is for unregistered SAL! On J-List most people pay about the same amount in shipping as the box costs. TOM has free shipping if you buy an expensive grab box (totalling over $100).

FAQ #4
Did you pay costums for the grab box?
I live in the Netherlands, where costums starts at 22 euros. I mostly stick to AmiAmi grab boxes, where the small and medium sized boxes are in general valued at inbetween 15 and 21 euros before shipping. That way, I don't get taxes/customs. I do have to watch out with the current exchange rates. J-List and TOM boxes will always give me costums.


I hope to see you guys also at my next blog, where I will do a food review from the Popin' Cookin' - Cake Shop Kit DIY kit!

VioFitz (1 anno/i fa) #8869912Hmm... But, you do know that Dragon Ball was actually started from 80's, right?

Yes, I know. :) But they only showed "Dragon Ball Z" over here in the 90's, and I started watching the original Dragon Ball later by myself on the internet. :)

Maakie (1 anno/i fa) #8727769Oh no, I meant more like "that type and/or time era" of anime was skipped showing here. ;) Most anime only started here in the 90's so I didn't even hear about anime like Doraemon until I started talking to you. xD

VioFitz (1 anno/i fa) #8603596You don't actually need to know Doraemon to know Perman series, because Perman series timeline is different compare to Doraemon. It was set like 3 or 4 or 5 years before the event of Doraemon storyline, judging from one of the character's age which appeared to be older than Nobita & his friends. So, Perman series almost never mentions about Doraemon but, Doraemon series indeed mentions Perman occasionally whenever they're watching TV.

Maakie (1 anno/i fa) #5118714Yeah, I'm going to treasure that Gudetama figure! (And hope I can still help myself to not buy too much from him, just yesterday I almost bought a pair of socks. xD)
Ahh yeah Doraemon was completely skipped over here, so I also didn't know about Perman. Happy Tree Friends is quite weird, but also funny every now and then. xD

Moro (1 anno/i fa) #5142281What an odd assortment of stuff, haha. The Azazel figure is so weird.
View spoilerHide spoilerAwww, a strap of the Major for me? Yes I'd love to have her! I sent you message > w<


Because of this, I'm liking these non-genre boxes the most so far. Of course there is some weird stuff in there that doesn't look like it will ever sell/trade, but it's just so much more diverse than other grab boxes!

I'll reply to your PM soon, I promise! I'm a bit busy with doing a lot of things at once right now. xD

mickeydeerho (1 anno/i fa) #5166634MFC really does have an entry for many merchandise.
Really cool looking grab box. I'd be totally surprised to see any Working!! merch. as this is my favourite anime I've been watching recently.
And that Bastard!! trading item scared me as I was reading your blog in the middle of the night! >_<


Fun fact: check those entries and the person that made them, probably half of them I made for this blog, because of them not being in here, haha!

I think I have seen people get things from Working!! in the boy's boxes. I never got items from it.

I'm still scared of that trading figure and it's hidden at the bottom of a box right now. Q.Q
