Showcase #15: Tag Team Deka Sets

 

These are some fun sets! I am in the process of buying display cases for my collection so I have been photographing my collection and doing inventory. Hence the entire topic posts (haha).

 

I am not sure on the exact Japanese name of the sets so I just labeled them “Tag Team Deka”. Once again Mandarakes REX Magazine issue #6 2015 (which has become my bible in regards to collecting/checklists) has a two page spread and more information (Pages 50 & 51).

 

Obviously inspired by the Kinkeshi pairs but on a larger scale (most are between 6-9cm tall). So they go along well with the other Dekas.

 

The set consists of 15 pairs total and are quite easy to acquire loose and are almost always a part of Deka lots from Japan. Some sets are more difficult to acquire but its difficult to put a price tag on them in terms of value etc

 

For display purposes they are not ideal but an acrylic nail polish case displays them quite well or especially a wrestling ring.

 

However you might get some weird looks or questions from visitors, family or firends when looking at the figures displayed ;) (if I had a dollar for everytime someone said: "Are those guys having sex with each other?"

 

I never planned on collecting these and just got them set by set along the way. Until I needed two more to complete my collection then I had to go through the process of hunting on yahoojapan.

 

The hardest pairs to collect are #10 (Ashuraman & Warsman) and #11 (Black Hole & Benkiman)

The first 5 sets are pretty easy to come by but also some of the coolest (like #4).

 

-Part #1 Warsman & Kinnikuman (they can't give these guys away! The most common of the bunch in my opinion)

-Part #2 Kinnikuman & Akuma Shogun

-Part #3 Robin Mask & Ramenman

-Part #4 Brocken Jr. & Buffaloman

Also pretty common sculpts aside from maybe #6 (finding these clean or together) & #9 (I dont see the Terryman too often or at all online).

 

Part #5 Mongol Man & Neptune Man

Part #6 Geronimo & Sky Man

Part #7 The Ninja & Screw Kid

Part #8 Terryman & Kinnikuman (Kinnikuman's third sculpt but my favorite with the added detail of tears coming out of his eyes!)

Part #9 Terryman & Sky Man (Both Terryman's and Skyman's second sculpts)

Part #10 Ashuraman & Warsman (Warsman's second sculpt and Ashuramans only sculpt; these two are hard to find and if you do find them they are split up)

Part #11 Rikishiman & Big The Budo

Part #12 Canadianman & Mr. Kamen

Part #13 Black Hole & Benkiman

Part #14 Pentagon & I forgot his name (lol but the sculpts are also hard to come by)

Part #15 Smile Man & Devil Magician
