Coca Cola Trexi "A Better Tomorrow"

Released in blind assortment in July 2007.
15 of these Trexi was selected after a 2-month online design contest and another 10 Trexi was designed by Invited Artists around the World.
The online submission attracted almost 4000 entries from 17 countries.
Another reason I started collecting Trexi was because of it's Coca Cola theme.
Each Trexi comes with a Coke bottle and can be firmly attached to the Trexi's hand.
I used to collect coke cans and bottles until lots of my Coke cans burst out, leaking all over my shelfs... I stopped collecting coke cans!
But when I saw the Coca Cola Trexi, my interest for Coke collectibles was renewed.

A Better Tomorrow - Coca-Cola Trexi :
Fish leaping over dragon gate, Recollections of Childhood, Share Fun
The "Recollections of Childhood" shown in this picture is among one of my favourites in this series.

Love, Coco-Doll, Lampada-Man

Passione, Swallow Peace, Sir Pun-STER

Bollicina (Silver), Popa Pengo, Happy Machine
The original Bollicina in this series should be "RED" in colour.
This silver Bollicina, I think is use for another Coca Cola promotion.

Jolli, Cola Sweet Heart, Happinkness

Refresh Sound System, Joy, Fridge Bot
Joy Trexi is also another cute little one I like.

Eggerston, Face to Face, Cupcomola

Enjoy My World, Transmutation of Happiness, The Mariachi
