Nintendo collectors will appreciate the free bonus.

Found in Food Mart (akin to a 7-Eleven in the U.S.), in Tokyo, Japan, this unusual pairing of a bagged Nintendo “Dragon Quest X” monster figure with a single-serve bottle of Pepsi brand NEX Zero (bottled by Suntory, Osaka) sells for 147¥/USD $1.88. A band on the flex-packed figure, complete with tiny stand, fits over the bottle top. Consumers can collect 16 different figures in the promotion, which reportedly launched in July.
