Showcase #67: Kinnikuman Premium "The Best" Kinkeshi Set

 

This was covered by Crunkenstein here: http://www.littlerub...howtopic=266630

 

I was sweating not getting this in time before I left on vacation but luckily they arrived today!

 

These have been promoted and anticipated for quite some time (starting last year) and I would say right now would be the best time to purchase the set.

 

I bought my set from Mandarake for 5,500 yen shipped (circa $50) because it was considered "open" (it didn't come with the mailer).

 

As of writing they have a set on sale for 5,000 yen (circa $46) + shipping but even if it sells out keep searching the site regularly (they always end up putting up more for sale).

 

Stay away from ebay, the amount this set sells for along with the other previous volumes of Premium sets is insane & overpriced!

 

These look way better in person as the box kinda hides the shape and look of the figures (the box and presentation looks awesome all in black though).

 

They are more "silverish" and really remind me of the Exogini/Cosmix sculpts for some reason.

 

These like other Premium sets have 15 Kinkeshi and is a mixture of "The Best" or popular sculpts from Vol 1 & Vol 2.

 

I showcased Premium Vol 1 & Vol 2 sets here: http://www.littlerub...topic=254909

Akuma Shogun (interesting how they kept the sculpt somewhat in uniform with the giant Great Deka Akuma Shogun vinyl release)

The Buffalo Man sculpt is partially responsible for the Vol 2 Premium set being sold for so much money now (I was told this by multiple sellers in Japan as the character is extremely popular; among others in that respective set which are also included in this set). Hence why I say that one should buy the set now before it goes up in price in the future...

Nope, unfortunately no new sculpt has been made in the last 5 releases (I dont think he's that popular).

It's all about the Seven Akuma Chojin story arc: http://kinnikuman.wi...kuma_Chojin_Arc

and

the Golden Mask story arc: http://kinnikuman.wi...Golden_Mask_Arc

and I think it's awesome!

 

Other premium volumes might be supposed to embody certain episodes of the manga, judging by these titles on ebay:

 
"Winding of Kinnikuman Kinkeshi premium Vol.1 ~ Kinkeshi-revival !! Prologue"
 
"Kinnikuman Kinkeshi Premium Vol.2 Sei Aku Kanpeki Dairanto no Maki Bandai Japan"
"Kinnikuman Kinkeshi premium Vol.2 ~ positive and evil-perfect winding of la"
 
"NEW Kinnikuman Kinkeshi Premium Vol.3 Tearful Episode of Giant Superman Troll NE"
