Need that Yoda but preferably in a color that's not one of those 3 (like mint green!). I like the black Vader a lot too.

 

Leia, Chewie, and Obi-Wan are noticeably absent but if they're doing another series they probably wanted to hold some main characters for that. I'd definitely take a Wicket and Jawa too, Jimmy.

 

Not sure how far they're gonna go with this, but the Cantina and Jabba's Palace aliens would make really cool minis.

I'm pretty sure they were sculpted by the same guy that sculpted the new kinkeshi line, the original sculptors son.

The name’s got to be intended to be “Forcekeshi”, which is downright adorable. The sculpts look cool, the choice of colors is perfect for a Star Wars theme even missing the peach-flesh color, and in a manageable set size. Win all around in my book, and further puts Super-7 MUSCLE to shame.

I've never held one of the super MUSCLE guys, but in photos the details look very soft - what's the general opinion of them?

Probably just importers, it would of already be advertised if it was sold anywhere outside Japan. Plus the press release says capsule release.

Now these are only sold in capsule machines, they're not candy box figures. And from what I've heard they are really popular so they are hard to find. I have a friend in Japan right now looking for them and he was barely able to get a sculpt set.

And yeah that price would be for all 24 figures

Black Vader is a must. 

 

Nothing else jumps out at me though. Yoda for sure if they make a lime green.

I’m also in for the Yoda, though I’m not picky. A sith Black Yoda could be cool.

This thought crossed my mind last night!

 

So one of my Japanese students is in Japan at the moment visiting his family (Most people who work in Germany are on vacation at the moment); he's about 38 years old mind you and not a collector at all (works in the car industry) but I asked him if he could get me some Star Wars Keshigomu.

 

Like Eric said; apparently they are not that easy to come by in terms of Gashapon machines being readily available (if they are available, the machines are completely sold out according to my student).

 

Since the Keshigomu are only available through Gashapon machines and I didnt want to have my student searching all over for a complete set/s...

 

I decided to use yahoojapan and will have them sent to his home outside Tokyo and he will bring them to me when he comes back at the end of the month (used his help since he has a yahoojapan account in Japan; so that saved me the middle man proxy service)

 

I won this 24 complete set auction today for 6,000 JPY (circa $53.46 USD): https://page.auction...tion/d263789012

 

For searches just type (you will find single sculpts or full sets on average for about 6,000 JPY to 8,000 JPY):

 

フォスケシ 01

フォスケシ 01 24

 

I typically use BUYEE TENSO and here is a break down of price differences:

 

1-(If using a Proxy service like Buyee Tenso): 6,000 JPY (circa $53.46 USD) + 300 JPY Service Fee (circa $2.70 USD) + 200 JPY Payment Fee (circa $1.80) =  6,500 JPY (circa $57.80) + shipping which I estimate at $13-$20 for national and abroad (Buyee holds your package for free for 30 days & AIR SP is the cheapest option) for a total of lets say $80 USD (rounding up the highest shipping rate).

 

2-(Just using yahoojapan like myself): 6,000 JPY (circa $53.46 USD)

 

3-(Buying them in person and assuming you get all 24 sculpts at once for 200 yen each): 4,800 JPY (circa $42.77)

 

So you pay basically double (assuming you get a set under 7,000 JPY) for a complete set of 24 Keshigomu using a proxy service but all things considered its not that bad in my opinion (flight to Japan, finding the Gashapon machines + getting all the sculpts with repeats etc).

thank you!!! i was searching on yahoo auctions for ages the other night and found nothing, so this is super helpful. im gonna try get a set and will post back here if i do

 

thanks again

Yeah they are probably more like the Kinnikuman Premium set sculpts (hard and somewhat moveable/bendable but not like classic kinkeshi)
