Anybody knows the mystery behind these space invaders?

I have been spotting space invader mosaics all around town, I have heard it's more than street art, anyone has a clue about what these icons can do?

    There's a French artist called Invader who had done mosaic street art in Tokyo multiple times. Invader travels all over the world and mostly does the Space Invader designs, but I saw photos of Astro Boy and other local designs. There are lots of photos on this blog, including a T-shirt design with the same bottle design in your photo. https://invaderblog.com/ I'd be interested to know if there's anything else going on, but I think it's just Invader's street art. I guess there's an app where you can take photos of them for points.

    I don't know what they mean or represent, but I'll be on the look out for them from now on. This is my first time to have seen them. Like a space invader Banksy!

    I've never seen them, but I am not in Tokyo a lot. I will be on the look out on my next visit. Thanks for pointing it out Mica and for the answer HelloAlissa, that's interesting to know.

    I know Pokémon go isn't that big of a deal anymore but it was rumored that where these mosaics appear, there's usually a crowd of monsters. Interesting isn't it? I just wanted to verify since am not doing Pokémon go!

Second hand Lego in Japan

Hi, does anyone know where you can find second hand Lego in Japan. Ebay and other flea market sites seem to have slim pickings. A friend suggests that most Japanese throw the Lego away because they assume other Japanese won't touch it due to hygiene concerns. Thanks :)
