Anyone else collect the little SD capsule figures?  
These are the figures I'm talking about: Set One and Set Two. Aren't they cute?

I ask because I've been trying to collect them and I have a double of the "Al-In-A-Box" from series two that I want to get rid of. He's complete with stand, little paper booklet and still wrapped in plastic. I also have the capsule itself, but that might be too bulky to ship for cheap; the other parts are small enough to toss in an envelope. Al cost me $2 Canadian (about $1.71 US), but I'd rather trade for a different figure than sell it (still need the winking Ed and Hughes from the first set and Ed, Bradley, Roy, Riza, and Scar from the second set).

But, hey, if you REALLY want it and don't have a figure to trade, make an offer and I'll think about it. I'm moving soon and want to give Al a good home soon before he gets lost in the upcoming mess. How can you say "No" to a face like that?

Where in Canada did you get them, if I could ask? My local stores don't seem to have those, and I'd be interested in possibly collecting them, too.

My friend and I found a capsule toy store in out in the northeast end of Toronto. It's kinda hard to explain, but it looks kinda like this place, a whole farm of the machines. They have a range of imported caspule toys, everything from anime figures to cute little Nintendogs swings to tiny medical/anatomical models.

The store doesn't online have an online presence. It's purely a walk in, put a tooney (or two or three) in and spin the knob deal.

Ah, that kinda ruins it as I'm in Winnipeg. Never seen anything like that here. Keep me posted on the figure though, I may just mail you a few bucks for it if no one has a trade.

I've never seen one in Canada before I stumbled upon that one, and it was chance I even found the place.

Someone has already made me an offer for the Al figure. However, odds are that I'm going to go back out to the store in the next week to get some more figures and with my luck, there will be more extras to relocate. :)

If I don't hear a trade offer in a day or so, you'll be the first person I go to. :)

I didn't make it - it was made by _effulgence.

Wow, I already hve Set #1 (excluding the Roy figurine o_o;.) ~ I lost Alphonse, though. I think my cat hid him from me @_@;. I got it in....Edmonton I believe.

I want set #2 now <3. I prolly wont make any trade offers, though.

I really love all of those figures! They are all so adorable. I want all of them. I wish I could buy them.

Ah man! They had those in a store in HK (only the second set, though) and I blew so much money off of them... I DID have a couple of Rizas around, but they're back at my parents house in HK - though I could look into organising something if you're still after her (I may have Bradley too). I only missed out on Ed in the end...Him and Envy were rather hard to find...I also couldn't get hold of the 'normal' Mustang, though I got a couple of him in the 'special' form (was really just him painted grey...whoot! -__- ).
