Mail Call! – “Shenmue III” Kickstarter Exclusive Capsule Toy Set
Today we’re opening up our Shenmue III capsule toy set, which was a perk from the game’s Kickstarter campaign, which came to those who backed at a $500 level or higher.
Let’s jump straight to the video!
For those out of the know, capsule toys have been a consistent time sink and virtual money pit in the Shenmue series since the first game on the SEGA Dreamcast. While the first two games had several classic SEGA characters in their capsule toy machines such as Sonic, Alex Kidd, and the Virtua Fighter roster, Shenmue III’s toys were limited due to the series severing its publishing ties with SEGA. Instead, Shenmue III has toy versions of in-game objects and vehicles, chibi versions of Shenmue characters, and the likenesses of Kickstarter backers who dropped girthy stacks of cash for their visages to be immortalized in the game.
