When I heard these were coming out I was very happy!

 

Although I didn't order them in the pre-sale phase I thought I would not have a hard time getting them afterwards (on my own time). I waited a bit and just decided on going the Mandarake route since the prices are still reasonable there and not on ebay for example (the prices are nuts on ebay).

 

Mandarake (although sometimes expensive) has both volumes on sale (I bought both volumes & with shipping it was a total of about $125 bucks; I live in Germany so I thought that was reasonable)

 

They sell out but keep getting new ones (you can find them on a weekly/daily basis). So I recommend buying them now when its still affordable.

 

I received them today and I thought I was not getting them with the BANDAI mailer but I did! If anyone ordered them through BANDAI; did they ship them just like that? meaning only using the mailer as a shipping box? I ask because the volume mailers have this sticker on top that very much looks like shipping slips (but am not sure).

 

Both volumes are new and unopend (minus the mailer of course) and each Kinkeshi is placed in its own respective bag for extra protection.

 

I have not had the heart yet to open them & am not sure I ever will.

 

Even though I love the vintage line more I wanted to support the product and was happy to do so.

 

The boxes are smaller than the original 28 figure boxes, practical for display purposes but I would have liked if they had that same look and size to have continuity with the old boxes which ended after Box #11 and the Crystal Kinkeshi boxes (the only small gripe I have with the sets).

 

For more info on the figures The University of M.U.S.C.L.E has a great blog by Professor Terry on volume 1:

Since I left the Kinkeshi sealed in the boxes I never actually showcased them individually; after my recent trip to Japan I was able to buy 2nd sets and open them.

 

Except for Vol. 2 since it’s sold for almost double the price I paid for originally (it's selling for like 140 EUR at toy shops/hobby shops in Japan!).

 

So if you have chance to get Vol. 4 when it comes out in November, do so because depending on the sculpt they could go up in price.

I received them today and I thought I was not getting them with the BANDAI mailer but I did! If anyone ordered them through BANDAI; did they ship them just like that? meaning only using the mailer as a shipping box? I ask because the volume mailers have this sticker on top that very much looks like shipping slips (but am not sure).

 

While I didn't order any of these sets, I've received many products through the Bandai Premium webshop (Tamashii Webshop specifically). In Japan, they absolutely are shipped in those more plain mailers if shipped individually. Larger orders have them in a sealed case or other larger shipping box depending on the order of course.

 

Many Tamashii Web exclusive figures from SH Figuarts and the like get released in the US via a distributor, Bluefin, and in many cases those figures will continue to include the shipping mailer box as well.

Thanks for the info! Since I only shopped/bought from resellers like Mandarake I wondered about that; even when I bought my 2nd Premium Vol. 3 set in person at the Mandarake Shibuya branch I didn't get the mailer (but I didnt mind since I was opening the box anyway).

 

However if sealed sealed (meaning that the mailer remains closed) then you will get it anyway (I bought my first Premium Vol. 3 on yahoojapan and there I got the mailer).

 

I dont mind the japanpost sticker on the box (feels more genuine) :)
