Showcase #20: Bandai Kinnikuman "Custom Contest" Daishi & Trophy

 

This was posted way back when in March but I am in the process of putting all the showcases in one place.

 

I acquired a Daishi concerning a Kinnikuman contest from the 80's along with a small kinnikuman trophy (that apparently one could buy for 3,486 Yen?)

 

I have seen the Daishi in poster format before inclosed in certain Kinkeshi boxed sets from that time. The version I have in daishi form may or may not have been displayed in Gashapon machines.

 

Obviously the trophy I now own belonged to someone else (I covered it up) and what is interesting about this is that you could have your name engraved in the trophy. However I have no idea if it was awarded based on painting the custom Kinkeshi or if one could just buy it?

 

I have been trying to decipher what this contest was about and was wondering if anyone here at LRG had any additional information?

 

Nama Niku had a blog post about it in 2013 (he has a poster version of the daishi and scanned it):

In Showcase #7 I highlighted the Kinnikuman Tag Tournament Ring Sets. On the inside of each set is a flyer similar to the Daishi backing board (It's also an ad for other toys/products but it also concerns a Kinnikuman painting contest, I really wish I knew more about the contest!)

 

Regardless it made a nice addition to my collection and I thought: "Well I painted my own Deka...so I will award myself a trophy lol"

If I had to guess from looking at the included page, maybe you found one that was mass-produced and awarded for participation (with a purchase), and the other two trophies shown are the ones awarded to the winner(s)/second runner(s) up of the contest?

Its interesting that the gashapon machine Daishi (backing board) I own was also inserted as a leaflet/poster inside Kinnikuman toys/playsets as well. Probably encouraging kids to paint the kinkeshi figures etc

This topic was posted way back when in March but I am in the process of putting all the showcases in one place. So I thought I would make this #20 to add it to the rest of the showcases.

 

Here is an addition to this topic post: In Showcase #7 I highlighted the Kinnikuman Tag Tournament Ring Sets. On the inside of each set is a flyer similar to the Daishi backing board (It's also an ad for other toys/products but it also concerns a Kinnikuman painting contest, I really wish I knew more about the contest!)

 

Here are some pictures :)
