    What is this used for? Is it just a souvenir, or are these actually cufflinks?

    Maybe I’m just missing something, but I have no idea what this is supposed to be. I’ve read the description three times and am still confused. The packaging and object itself are no help either.

    Personally, I’m not a fan… this entire thing just creeps me out…

    This is exactly why using Google translate isn’t a good idea. Nothing in this post makes sense, including the words on the package.

    I have no idea what they’re selling. That’s not so much a “lovely package” as it is a confusing mess.

    As said “vinyl figures”, It is one of limited piece of designers collectable toy produced by Michael Law,Hong Kong based artiest.

    This post, however, obviously needs more clear description to tell what it is.

    Coarse is a Hong Kong based studio, producing entirely handcrafted vinyl “sculptures”. These little things are very populars in Asia mainly in Japan. That’s what I call “collection madness”. You can sell anything if it’s come with a collection…

    As with most Asian packaging, this does not make any sense. Apparently the Chinese and Japanese get it, though. What’s up with the shooting cum streams on the box?
