Because why not.

Apparently images are a two-step process.

Very neat. I need to get some of these eventually. Are these bootlegs of real ones with a key chain stuck in them?

 

Thanks,

There was at least one legit set of Kinkeshi keychains sold in Japan back in the 80's/90's, although the quality is on par with a quick DIY job; Cheap eye hooks screwed into the figures, then attached to a paperclip necklace and a twist tie:

After years in a non-airtight container, the metal has begun to oxidize. This in turn has effected the areas of the figures near the contact points, causing parts of the figures to look eternally "dirty":

People have done this same thing with M.U.S.C.L.E.s, which probably are not as easily effected by metal leaching effect.

 

 

Aslo, these miniature bootleg kinkeshi keychains pop up from time to time as well:

They are shrunken down copies of Kinkeshi with loops added to their heads, and come in various colors and materials.

Great information in this post!
The ones in OP are original Kinkeshi except for the #23, that one is muscle. Simple keychain kit from amazon.
