Ufo Dolls In Ufo Claw Machines! ...in The Us!!

Yeah its true folks ufo catcher dolls in claw machines in...Iowa. It was weird i found them right before i moved. My local malls Arcade just filled one of there Claw machines with "X/1999" dolls. Me and m friends freaked. I spent way over $70 and only got 3. I didn't want to pass up this amazing opp. The weird thing was ..X doll....in a US claw machine....in a mall aracde....in IOWA@! There long gone, after one of the employes found out what they where he took them all and sold them on e bay.

I was a lucky guy walking off with 3, since i totally suck at claw machines. But the hard part was walking around the mall with dolls afterwards.

I saw an X doll at an arcade in - get this - Johnstown, PA. As my mom says, "the town that god keeps trying to flush". It wasn't in the claw machine itself, you have to get enough tickets. But I'm gonna be stuck there again in not too long, so I'll try to get one. ^^ (What ELSE am I gonna do?)

It's too bad I wasn't there, I am a master of crane machines and I say this with little ego. (No, honest, they reset the machines at GameWorks after I left. Muahahahah!)

Here in Waco last year, they had 3X3 eyes UFO dolls in a local grocery store claw machine. I don't know what happened to them, but now there's a ton of hello kitty stuff mixed in with the usual crap there.

X dolls? You've got to be kidding! I have been looking for a Subaru for ages with no luck and there they are in random machines in arcades in the US?

XD

I found the same thing in the Franklin Mills mall in PA XD

The best part is... the arcade staff let me buy them for $3 each!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! XD XD XD XD

Between me & my friends we got em all EXCEPT Seishiro... T_T

But I still got precious Sorata and Subaru~~~~ XD

I guess since the X dolls are made by Sega they are easier for USA macines to get? I've heard of people all across the country finding them in their local arcades!


And no I don't have any extras and I won't sell them and there's no more at Franklin Mills, we bought em all XD
