Showcase #47: 29 + 1 Project Kinnikuman vs Uno Caol Kinkeshi

 

Released in June of 2009 and at a price of 210 yen per blind box; these Kinkeshi dare I say are only for die hard Kinnikuman, Kinkeshi completists or MMA fans. Because the sculpts are not necessarily pretty or cool looking to Kinkeshi or Keshigomu purists probably. But I find the sculpt with Kinnikuman getting rear "naked choked" pretty hilarious! They are readily available and decently priced and I have not actively pursued collecting a complete set (meaning all 3 colors) but I bumped into a sealed box and for the price I ended up buying it.

 

The sculpts come in Flesh, Blue & Red and the sculpts/colors are mixed together (like the tag sculpts are usually 1 of each random color). The material is the same as the 2008 reissues and no worries about the Keshi melting; 10 sculpts total or 5 sets of two (30 sculpts total if you add all 3 colors).

 

Caol Uno besides being an MMA fighter is himself a fan of Kinnikuman. During the 2008 anniversary celebration and Kinkeshi releases; Caol collaborated to release his own special Kinkeshi sculpts calling it the "29 + 1 project". The project was supported by BANDAI and the Kinkeshi was sold at 7-11 Japan convenience stores and UCS (Uno Caol's online web shop). Caol was the first legit exsisting fighter to be replicated as a Kinkeshi sculpt. That would be super awesome to be immortalized in Kinkeshi form!
