Snow White Furuta Gashapon Figures

These were part of the Choco egg series. They were packaged individually in a paperboard box. Inside was a foil-covered Choco egg (hollow egg-shaped hard chocolate). Inside this was a smaller plastic capsule. Inside this were figure pieces and the paper instructions. Each character would then need to be assembled to create the set seen below.
