When I first saw this gachapon machine filled with little plastic champagne towers, I thought WAT? Who needs a set of miniature, light-up, host club furniture? I mean, even though it’s pretty happenin’ how they change color and all…

…it hit me that the Drunken Pets that helped me ring in the new year BADLY needed a partytown for the other eleven months
And what could keep them more entertained than quaffing champagne with the hostpet of their dreams?
But that’s not all – check out the action at Club Minifig
