402 サムソン

 

This sculpt because of the extra add on accessory of the hind hooves is quite expensive; I own 3 sculpts in Green, Blue & Yellow without the hooves (I have seen the sculpts with the hooves but can't make myself buy it for the prices...that is until I see a good deal).

403 ジ・オメガマン

 

Another great sculpt in Omega Man; this sculpt was also re-released other times besides the 1991 Battle Collection. This sculpt is also quite expensive and even more so in Flesh. I have this in Green & Red :)

Last but not least a more regal and bigger sculpt of Mito:

Whenever I see the chance to get some vintage Green Kinkeshi I dont own (or any other colors) I do and I have been collecting them separately.

 

But only as they come in lots or if I see them at Mandarake for cheap. I checked each one for the YSN/T marking and those are added to my collection.

 

If they had no marking or a faint marking I didnt include them (unless I did not have that particular sculpt). 12 Kinkeshi from my Green collection I think are bootleg and until I bump into the vintage/legit sculpts I will replace them. The other 238 Kinkeshi are original :)

 

Regardless...

 

As of today I was able to reach 250 vintage Green Kinkeshi from the 418 collection!

 

Since they are so many I have to now display them on my bookshelf (I took them out of Detolf glass display case):

As of today I was able to reach 236 vintage Red Kinkeshi from the 418 collection!

 

From the 236 vintage Red Kinkeshi, 10 are bootleg (until I bump into the vintage/legit sculpts I will replace them).

 

Like the Green KInkeshi, since they are so many I have to now display them on my bookshelf (I took them out of Detolf glass display case):

Incredible!

I can't even imagine how much time and money you have put into this.

I think I spent like 8-10 years tracking down my set and it pales in comparison to yours. No trips to Mandarake unfortunately :( but lots of bulk lots purchased off YJP.

Incredible collection and very awesome of you to catalog all of this for the group! :)

Thank you!

Part 30 (13 Total)

 

Last but not least...almost feel sad posting this (I waited a bit actually) since it's the last Part in the collection and I completed it during my trip to Japan.

 

This was the easiest and most expensive Part to collect (it's most difficult to collect if you want a particular set in a respective color). So having it mixed is good enough for me but along the way since my trip to Japan I acquired some other sculpts in different colors.

 

Interestingly enough since I acquired so many doubles I am actually now 45 Kinkeshi sculpts away from completing a mixed 2nd full set! (sculpts from Part 19 to Part 25).

 

If I wanted to complete a 2nd set I guess, I could collect it easily since the other parts are way more difficult to collect in comparison.

キン肉マン(V)

 

When I first saw this sculpt way back when, it seemed so out of reach and super rare; holding it in my hands when I bought it in Japan was an awesome feeling!

マンモスマン(B)

 

This sculpt along with sculpt #418 is one of the super rares you see sold online often (widely available online). During my trip to Japan I hit every Mandarake in Osaka and Tokyo.

 

The Mandarake Complex branch in Akihabara was kinda disappointing but acquiring this sculpt was the silver lining: They basically had no kinkeshi and when I asked the employee he went to the back and pulled a bag with 5 figures and one of them was a Flesh #408 sculpt that usually runs for 25,000-30,000 yen or more but this one was not priced and when I asked the employee they marked it way below that (I thought about it and just bit the bullet).

 

That was my only purchase (I spent like 10 minutes total and more time in the tax free register).

ザ・サムライ

 

This Part had sculpts that looked bigger or more "jacked up" proportion wise. #409 is an awesome sculpt that almost feels completely different to the other Kinkeshi releases in the family.

My least favorite sculpt from this Part is this one (something about the price in proportion to the sculpt scale) but at least it feels like a brand new sculpt!

412
ビビンバ(B)

 

Google this name and you get a ton of hits for Bibimbap (a Korean dish) which is quite delicious ( I had a chance to try it in 2016 during my South Korea visit).

 

A great sculpt and if the vintage #412 is out of your price range it is available in the 29th anniversary re-release.

 

So make sure if you want the vintage sculpt to look for the CHINA stamp (generally if the price appears to be "Too good to be true" then it probably is).

ネプチューンマン(F)

 

Another sculpt that one can find online but it is expensive! The last Neptune Man sculpt in the vintage line!

 

I found this #413 at JUNGLE in Osaka and it was reasonably priced and the staff are super accommadating.

 

Most of my Part 30 sculpts came from this Toy store.

カメハメ(B)

 

I wished I had a mint sculpt of #414 (damaged chest piece) but am sure I will bump into a better sculpt in the future.

 

For less than $10 I will not complain! At that point I thought I would never bump into the Part 30 sculpts in the wild at those prices, so I opted to complete my collection by saving on shipping and middle man proxy costs.

Another brand new sculpt and the second to last or for some the truly last sculpt in the vintage line (since #418 is a coin). The chest piece is awesome and even the head!

パート30記念メダル

 

The last sculpt! The commemorative medal and this Kinkeshi is always super expensive and never mind the Flesh!

 

Between 10,000 Japanese yen and up depending on the color.

 

It commemorates the last splash page of the original Kinnikuman Manga/story (Manga Tankobon #36 or Weekly Shonen Jump #21, 1987)

Just rearranged my Blue Kinkeshi (together with my Green & Red Kinkeshi) and the final tally this year was...

 

Blue Kinkeshi Total: 224/418

 

From the 224 vintage Blue Kinkeshi, 3 are bootleg (until I bump into the vintage/legit sculpts I will replace them).
