Long story short-My friend went to Japan to visit his GF. He knows I'm.. u_u obsessed with FMA. And found a book (picked it up for me as a gift) that had chapter 100 in it (along with a tonne of other mangas.. and a tonne of random FMA stuff/advertisements).
However one of the goodies in it were coasters. Yes. Coasters.
:D Great for icon usage or graphics.


Flamel Snake is VERY happy.

Just as I finally compose myself after laughing like a COMPLETE IDIOT at SNAKE. You go in there and throw the GANGSTA!FLAMEL SNAKE in there. Pfftftttf. <3

He does look like Fetus-Envy D:..

These are effin' amazing *_* Srsly, Japanese manga magazines have the BEST gifts T^T

But I'd never use the coasters XD Too precious~

GANGSTA!FLAMEL SNAKE is indeed awesome! ....might have to icon him XD

Coasters...and cups, I feel like such a nerd, but I want them.

Thanks so much for scanning! So, all the other illos apart from the Ed one I recognise as being cropped from various artbooks and chapter illos.

Anyone recognise the Ed illo from anywhere else? Has it been cropped from an artbook pic I haven't yet come across? Dying to know if this is a cropped version of an EVEN COOLER pic. Love Ed's top especially.

I don't think the Ed illo is from any of the artbooks (yet). I think it's from this year and was a magazine cover type thing.

... wasn't it a title page for one of the manga chapters? Maybe?
Or, like evil_little_dog said, maybe a magazine cover... :3

He's the cover of the 2009 calendar, I scanned it when I got it, it's here: http://sky-dark.livejournal.com/628571.html

Thanks, sky! Just looked at the scans. That calendar just rocks, all the way through. Loved Team Greed!Ling.

I will now be very disappointed if the Gangsta!Snake never makes an appearance in any of the FMA canons.

I so want that coaster...
auron_kaleauron_kale on November 12th, 2009 07:11 pm (UTC)
I actually have 2 sets of the coasters, as they came with the November issue of Shounen GanGan.

The bonuses for the issue were: alternate cover for the FMA PSP game, the coasters, and a wristband with a pin.

Now I want the glasses...
rhelpimtiredyo on November 12th, 2009 10:09 pm (UTC)
How much does Shonen GanGan actually cost for you to get, assuming you live outside of Japan?
auron_kaleauron_kale on November 12th, 2009 11:05 pm (UTC)
I bought my copies of Shounen GanGan for about $7 at Kinokuniya Book Store in San Francisco (since it's close to work).

The thing with the GanGan issues is that Kinokuniya doesn't really get a lot of copies of them, since they're the size of a phone book, so they go really fast.
rhelpimtiredyo on November 12th, 2009 11:59 pm (UTC)
Oh, I hadn't even thought of checking local shops like Kinokuniya for a copy of Shounen GanGan. You are a genius.
~*SUPER KAWAII HERO NEKO SPARKLES 9000+1*~anidlefish on November 15th, 2009 10:33 pm (UTC)
Out of curiosity, when does Kinokuniya get them?
auron_kaleauron_kale on November 16th, 2009 04:38 pm (UTC)
Got them at the Kinokuniya in San Francisco's Japan Town.
~*SUPER KAWAII HERO NEKO SPARKLES 9000+1*~anidlefish on November 16th, 2009 06:54 pm (UTC)
Ah, I meant more along the lines of what time of the month they get the shipment in.
auron_kaleauron_kale on November 16th, 2009 10:21 pm (UTC)
Usually around the 8th - 16th of the respective month.

So a December issue would arrive in December, and no you cannot get the issue with the latest chapters - unless you want them to airmail it to you (which is very expensive) and even then, they don't get the issues early so you can't get it on the same day as Japan.

rhelpimtiredyo on November 12th, 2009 10:09 pm (UTC)
Hahaha, I love it!

GANGSTA!FLAMEL SNAKE threw me for a loop.

WTF, Arakawa. XD

I want that to appear on Ed's coat the next time he loses it and has to make a new one. Ed's tacky enough to do it.
