Daruma, but where’s Greg?

From sci-fi Japan:

Bandai’s Tamashii Nations presents DARUMA CLUB, a funky new figure series that takes Japanese themes and characters and mixes them with the traditional Japanese “daruma” motif. Daruma are often given as good luck gifts to help the receiver achieve a desired goal.

From wikipedia:

“The Daruma doll (達磨 daruma?), also known as a Dharma doll, is a hollow, round, Japanese traditional doll modeled after Bodhidharma, the founder of the Zensect of Buddhism. These dolls, though typically red and depicting a bearded man (Dharma), vary greatly in color and design depending on region and artist. Though considered an omocha, meaning toy, by some, Daruma has a design that is rich in symbolism and is regarded more as a talisman of good luck to the Japanese. Daruma dolls are seen as a symbol of perseverance and good luck, making them a popular gift of encouragement. The doll has also been commercialized by many Buddhist temples to use alongside goal setting.”
