Kinkeshi Collector Tracking
Completely stealing a page from Onetallponderosa, I am doing a collector tracking for the vintage 418 Kinkeshi collection, all the five colors or a Master Set.
Not the re-releases, only the original/vintage Part 1 to Part 30 run.
One of the more difficult things about the Japanese Kinkeshi line besides completing it, is acquiring them from other sources besides yahoojapan or ebay.
Prior to joining LRG in October 2016, I knew of the existence of Kinkeshi and that they came from Japan etc (I probably lurked around for a good 6 months before deciding on joining).
But once I joined it was a wealth of information! Simply by just using the "Search" option I could trace back old posts/threads about whaever topic I was interested in.
I also realized that new members kept asking the same questions over & over about Kinkeshi & MUSCLE figures, despite the information being available if you just looked or did the research (I asked some of those questions when I first joined: How many MUSCLES total? etc).
But I get it, its overwhelming and you gotta start somewhere...
Once you cross that bridge and start collecting Kinkeshi like myself, it becomes hard to trade because I didn't know who collected Kinkeshi.
Once you get to certain Parts or start collecting Color Kinkeshi, finding the ones you are missing is a real hurdle. So this could possibly help collectors reach goals etc
From the looks of things not many apparently (haha) so this is why am asking the community: If you do collect Kinkeshi or have completed the vintage 418 set or more than one, please let me know so I can compile a list
I know jkaris and EricNilla have complete sets (more than one even!) but I know other LRG members have some too!
So please share and give me exact numbers.
