These were originally given out as prizes during a Lawson campaign ... but you may have to define "prize" differently
So last summer, Lawson was having one of their campaigns where they have different prizes you can win. This one centered around the K-On! movie, and one of the prizes was ... puppets. Of the entire Houkago Tea Time crew. You can see them above as they've finally shipped out to those who got them, and to borrow a comment from the Crunchyroll article, they look like Terrence and Phillip from South Park.
Some of the character design does seem to get lost in translation (especially Mio), but then again, these will likely be collector's items because the Lawson campaign was the only way to get them. I'm not really regretting missing out on the promotion, but what do you guys think of these?
