Showcase #49: Amada Mini Kinkeshi "10 Super Rares"

 

I have been heavily pursuing/collecting the Amada mIni Kinkeshi line recently and from all the sculpts in the line I was always curious about the Kinkeshi I saw highlighted in the April 2008 issue of Mandarake's REX Magazine.

 

These "Super Rares" are really seldom and harder to come by than the other standard 16 kinkeshi "Super Rares" for example (these are available but the prices are really expensive).

 

However these Amada mini kinkeshi sculpts hardly come up in the wild and are more affordable but still expensive nontheless. The April issue of REX listed 10 sculpts as "Super Rare" and they are really tiny in comparison to the vintage Kinkeshi and have the marking: © YS.N.T with a circled P underneath on the back.

 

At first glance these are not spectacular and more for the hardcore collector in my opinion. But some sculpts make up for it like the original character sculpts not made in the traditional Kinkeshi size.

 

They come in Flesh, Blue, Red, Green & Yellow.

 

I acquired some recently and will showcase each one in the upcoming days/weeks :)

MR VTR

First '"Super Rare" is the VTR sculpt in Flesh:

Thanks to Rubberhammer for pointing this out!

I had my Japanese student translate the REX magazine blurb and it says the head on the sculpt is backwards and as a result more "rare".

Correction! Rubberhammer I was curious about your comment (head being backwards) so I had my Japanese student translate the REX magazine blurb and your absolutely correct! The head is backwards and as a result more "rare". Never noticed until today!

This little guy came with the capsule; back then only 20 yen! imagine getting this guy from a gashapon machine.

 

He is a little bent due to him being inside the capsule; I heard that placing it inside hot water would corrects this?

 

Not really sure about that but am not taking the risk and will just leave him "as is"; leaving him outside the capsule to prevent melting :)

Boiling water works! They made the Super Rares "sit up straight" again (often when in a capsule for a long period of time the Kinkeshi bend); I heard that putting them in boiling water would fix that and it did.

 

I normally use the boiling water method to clean gunk from figures that have experienced melting or are just dirty. I was hesitant to try with such expensive Keshi but I just did it anyway.

 

I place the hot water (boiled in a water boiler) and diswashing soap inside tupperware and just let the Kinkeshi sit in it for 30-60 min (I stir them around with a spoon).

 

Afterwards I scrub them off with a normal sponge.

 

The Amada almost immediately straightened out. Now I can display them standing as well in my display cases :)

Mammoth Man

 

The 3rd "Super Rare" in my collection is a Mammoth Man Mini Kinkeshi in yellow. The sculpt is very similar to the Deka Kinkeshi Mammoth Man sculpt and mine came with the capsule; which back then only cost 20 yen!

 

He was a little bent due to him being inside the capsule; I placed him inside hot water and it corrected this. The figure can now stand on it's own!

Kinnikuman Phoenix

 

The 4th "Super Rare" in my collection is a Kinnikuman Phoenix Mini Kinkeshi in red and mine came with the capsule.

 

Like my other 3 mini Kinkeshi, this one was a little bent due to him being inside the capsule; I placed him inside hot water and it corrected this. The figure can now stand on it's own!

Hawkman

 

The 5th "Super Rare" in my collection is a Hawkman Mini Kinkeshi in blue and this one also came with the capsule.

 

Like my other mini Kinkeshi, this one was bent as well; I placed him inside hot water and it corrected this.

 

Its not anything special in person or comparison to the Mammoth Man or Haniwaman, recommended only to completist or Kinkeshi addicts like myself :D
