Out all the purchases I made at Mandarake Grand Chaos; finding Part 26 of the vintage Kinkeshi line was awesome.

I want to complete, as much as financially possible the series on this trip.

As most of you know I am just about 4 parts away from a complete set of the vintage kinnikuman kinkeshi line (plus some stragglers).

Although the set has 2 sculpts in crystal kinkeshi form I'll take it!

Am not being too picky about the later parts being in color and not Flesh.

The latter parts can get expensive starting with Part 25 and up.

I have 1 double from Part 26 and am open to trade for anything I don't own from the vintage line (pictured in blue).

I also snagged these later part kinkeshi for a reasonable price. Now reasonable for me is taking into account a ton of factors.

If I buy something online through a middle man provider (I use Buyee Tenso); I have to factor in the end bid price, national shipping, international shipping to me, the commission for the middle man and on top any custom charges I may incur.

So in the end just buying it in person is much more appealing.

So I was happy to find these!

These 3 are the 1991 sculpts and Eric now I know what you mean :)

These sculpts are bigger and made of a different rubber material.

Last but not least I bought some of the vintage Ramenman Mangas (only 200 yen).

I visited this store called Astro Zombie in Osaka. No Kinkeshi but a ton of cool stuff and especially sofubi (didn't buy anything here). Highlight was seeing Battle Trolls!

Finally a store I was able to sneakily take pictures in!

This is a pretty cool one floor store called Admski in Osaka.

They had some kinkeshi that I was missing from Part 16 but the selection is quite small (what I pictured was pretty much everything).

Tons of bootlegs!

The next store I highly recommend (they have a couple of stores in Japan): Jungle in Osaka

At first I was not expecting much in Kinkeshi but boy was I wrong!

So far in my trip this was a pleasant surprise!

Plus the staff know their stuff, one employee went out of her way to hook me up.

I bought 3 Kinnikuman T-Shirts (they had a ton of them).

The red being my favorite but it won't be something people recognize, as a former wrestler I appreciate the design. In Mexico the mecca is "Arena Mexico" for Pro Wrestling (as the Tokyo Dome would be for Japan).

Kinnikuman T-Shirts are freaking expensive!

I bought a lot of the later part Kinkeshi and at some point the female employee went to the back and brought out a giant bag of kinkeshi. I asked her how much since it didn't have a tag. She looked at me,smiled,winked and said "how about 3,000 yen?"...I said for sure!

It ended up having about 250 kinkeshi (averaging circa 0.12 cents each). Not all winners (28 of them were from the 2008 re-release) but am not complaining!

The sets have number markings but I believe they are bootleg (I have to check my issue of REX when I get home; I remember seeing them there). At first I confused them with the Kinnikuman A, B, C boxed releases but they are not (plus the insert has no copyright or BANDAI, Poppy or Amada marking logo)
