Blind Boxes

Now for those of you that do not know what a blind box is, it is a box containing a random product of a specific series. Basically it's like collecting trading cards you know which set you are getting but you don't know exactly which one you have gotten until you open the box. My brother loves collecting little figures and has been buying Disney's Vinylmation boxes for a few years now and has picked up other kinds of blind boxes here and there. He was the one that turned me onto buying and collecting blind box toys. I love getting a box and hoping that I get one that I haven't gotten before (if I have gotten that specific series before), or getting a box and looking for the coolest one and hoping I got that one (if it is a series that I have never gotten before). 

One day while I was waiting for my brother to get out of work, I was walking through some stores at Universal Studios City Walk and found two blind box series that I have never seen before and thought were really cool. The first one was a box called Garbage Pail Kids. The Garbage Pail Kids brand has been out since the 80's as these trading cards that are supposed to parody the Cabbage Patch Kids. They look super cool and once my eyes laid on them I knew I had to buy one.

Since I've never gotten these before and after looking at which ones were in this series I was hoping to get either Adam Bomb or Teevee Steve. I love when blind boxes have the blind bags inside as well because I feel like the fun is in feeling the bag to try and figure out which one you recieved. After opening my package I found one that I wasn't hoping to get but was still pleased with since they all look pretty cool. I got New Wave Dave. 

I also picked up a box called Sonny Angel. Sonny Angel is a little boy wearing different head gear and sometimes nothing else. The box that I picked up was apart of Sonny Angel's Beach series which is just Sonny wearing different kinds of shirts with matching hats. 

After getting these two blind boxes I'm definitely itching for some more so I guess this means I know where my money will be going every now and then.

Do you guys love blind boxes? If so which one's are your favorite? Which one's should I get next?
