From what I can figure out, a box set with all the episodes (sans movies) and a box full of 418 Kinkeshis! Now something I wanna get for my own birthday!

On the negative side, something like this shows how much Toei cares about Nisei. Meaning that don't give a rat's arse about giving Nisei fans what they want. (Yes, I'm a scorned fanboy, weep for me. >/)

Oh well, STILL WANT!!

No freaking WAY!

I am definitely getting one of these, for the keshis alone! :D

I wonder what kind of plastic they will be?

1050 yen (about $1000)
Next December
Japan (ne of the bidding services can buy one for you)
Probably not. They are Japanese region DVDs as well. Won't work in a US player.

Man! That's just Freaking Awesome!!! Why the DEVIL does it have to be $1000 bucks????!!! I mean....$100 bucks for the DVD set even $175 would be reasonable. Then 418 Reissued figs? Come on at the most $.50 cents each would be a profit. So $209 for them. $400 would be a better price. :woot: Although I still couldn't afford it. So I guess it doesn't matter. :D I want one....

I guess it's to a life of crime, just afford some LRG's.
Bah.


I do think they should include keshis with US releases of any of the Kin DVD's. I think their sales would go up.

If it was subbed, which it's not, I would spend the $1000.

Oh, those TEASES. I can't afford that, no matter how awesome. A lack of subs doesn't help...*weeps*

But actually Frobman, I think you do get a couple of the movies with the set. When you click the picture of the set, you can see 2 DVD's with the word "MOVIE" in bold letters

It's all the (already released) DVDs to the first and second anime plus all the movies (yes, on just two discs)... one, indeed, must wonder why they didn't just wait another year... maybe to be funny?

Actually, that is pretty damned cheap for what you are getting.

The DVDs, by themselves are $100 per set (2 discs). There are 17 sets (12 regular series, 4 final battle and 1 movie). This contains 16 f the sets, so $1600 worth of DVDs, and a full set of regular series re-issue keshi.

So at $1000, that is quite a bargain.

Yes, DVD sets in Japan are outrageous, but for what you are getting here, the keshi alone are worth the money!

Our glorious Milky Way is a tiny, infinitesimal speck of sand in this vast, incomprehensible universe. And somewhere in that Milky Way is our own solar system, less than one billionth of that speck of sand that is the Milky Way. And then there is our planet Earth, one hundred trillionth of that one billionth of that one speck of sand. And on this planet Earth there is DEV-0, an insignificant blemish with a lifespan too short to measure when placed in infinite time.

And you are here, with them, as so many specks of sand.

Wow, $100 bucks for a DVD. I'd expect them to be gold-plated for that.

Well, it's a year away until they're out. Maybe I'll see what my financial situation is like, and get myself a Christmas present.

I wonder if this will be a limited release. I might have to save every penny I currently don't have, and maybe I'll buy this......or a car. :lol:

There are 34 DVDs in that box. If the kinkeshi were 50 cents apiece, then the DVDs would be around $23 each, not $100. It's really too bad that they won't have English subtitles. That really sucks, 'cause I'd be all over this.

The owner of Toy Zipangu says:

Feb.29 2008 will be Kinnikuman day! Did you get it?

29th is going to be Friday. In Japanese language,

KIN = Friday

NI=2

KU=9

From now on, every Friday the 29th of any month will be an official KINNIKUMAN day.

Best.Fact.EVER.


...and don't forget to throw in $200 for a Japanese DVD player. Unless you know someone who can remove regeon coding with software that's not intended for that, but allows you to back up your DVD collection.

I always wondered about that whole '29' thing on Kinniku websites. The more you know...XD

Too bad February 29th only comes every four years (Leap Year's). It should be an annual holiday!

It just happens to fall on Leap Day this time. All it has to be is any Friday the 29th.
