McDonald's Japan is now serving up an assortment of three limited-edition Happy Meal boxes that are filled with one of eight collectible Funassyi figurines.

Funassyi is a character that was created by a citizen of Funabashi in the Chiba Prefecture of Japan, which now unofficially represents the city. Since the Funassyi mascot was introduced, it has come to be an icon for the region that's been depicted in everything from TV shows and commercials to anime series.

In recognition of this region-specific mascot, McDonald's Japan is now releasing a set of artful collectibles in its Happy Meal boxes, including a fun 'Donald Funassyi' that takes on the iconic appearance of the brand's Ronald McDonald clown character.
