Today was a long day!
The newest batch of MPC plush, along with a set of super DX plush, were released through Game Centers today. The MPC set features 6 dragons (Goomy, Goodra, Salamence, Gible, Dragonite, and Dratini), with the super DX plush set being Goomy and Goodra.
The MPC plush were easy to find as they are everywhere. The hardest part is finding a machine where you can actually win. Sega’s set-up tends to be difficult. In this case, they have three plush set out at a time on a flat service. You are supposed to use the claw to drag the plush forward to where the drop/chute is, a little bit at a time, but this becomes time consuming for larger, heavier, and rounder plush, like Salamence and Goomy.
I was able to win all of my MPC plush from machines that had the plush situated like a mountain. This is the best machine for winning, especially if you can find the plush you want around the middle of the pile or closer to the top. If you can move them enough, they will simply roll down the other plush and into the winning chute without much trouble. Goodra was my first win of the day and Goomy was my last…he was also the hardest to win because of his round body.
The super DX plush were a lot more difficult to find. Based on the past DX plush releases, I just assumed these plush would also be everywhere, but surprise surprise, distribution in Game Centers was not ideal. Most of the locations in Tokyo (and by most I mean 3 out of 4) were Sega centers, and lately they put larger plush like these in machines with C rings, which are very difficult to win from. Thankfully, I was able to find a game center that was close enough, and it turned out to not only have a machine I could win from…
…but apparently no one goes to this game center because the MPC plush machine was full of some older plush.
I won this Litwick using the “fall down the mountain” technique. He is part of the I Love Gothic line, which came out in the fall of 2013!
After catching dragons all day, I had a lunch break with my little Goodra. I love udon, and I especially love this type of udon (kitsune udon) which comes with fried tofu (inari).
More dragon catching tomorrow!
