Showcase #45: Chibi/Mini Kinkeshi

 

When I visited Japan I ended up with a lot of Chibi/Mini Kinkeshi from purchased lots of Kinkeshi. Unexpectedly I ended up with almost a complete collection and unlike Amada Kinkeshi; the Chibi Kinkeshi are easier to tell apart and separate in terms of bootlegs/pachi or unmarked/marked figures.

 

I also refer to them as Chibi/Mini Kinkeshi to avoid confusing myself with the Amada Kinkeshi sculpts as they are also referred to as mini Kinkeshi.

 

The only checklist I found online was this one: http://www.din.or.jp.../kin_chibi.html

 

This Japanese website has been one of my two "go-to's" when it comes to checklists and according to that the series might have a total of 30 sculpts. Assuming they were made in the standard 5 colors (Flesh, Green, Blue, Red & Yellow) it be a total of 150 in the collection.

 

However pachi versions come in additional colors like brighter versions of the 5 standard colors or even Pink, Gold or Silver; I am only missing 2 sculpts to have a complete collection (Akuma Shogun & The Ninja sculpts).

 

Those (the Pachi) are still super cool looking and fit well next to the original versions (as can be seen in my picture).

 

I have seen the regular Chibi/Mini Kinkeshi packed inside the TEX blister packs (2 per package); in Gashapon form they were available for 100 yen back in the day.

 

So if anyone has Akuma Shogun & The Ninja sculpts in any color please let me know!

 

Also if anyone knows more about them or an exact collection count fill me in as well.

The chibi kinkeshi are some of my favorite, there is just 30 in the official set and I'm not sure how many in The Unofficial set but I think there are a couple unofficial sets.
