Dear LRG community,

 

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):

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"
