Showcase #57: Kinnikusutensu Competition Hen Kinkeshi Part 3 (1991)

キン肉星王位争奪編(91年版)

 

The Part 3 series had 12 sculpts total (60 if you count all 5 color sculpts). Released in the classic five colors: Flesh, Green, Red, Blue & Yellow and the material is more robust and less "bendy & rubbery" material.

 

This set has some extremely rare & popular sculpts that can garner a higher price than some of the original vintage Kinkeshi.

 

Typically I like posting showcases of completed collections but I am unfortunately 1 sculpt shy of having a complete set.

 

Finding these is hard because they are not affordable or readily available like some Kinkeshi or the earlier Part 1 & Part 2 releases. I acquired most of these in Asia and a couple from yahoojapan.

キン肉マン(C)

 

 

This is one the "rarest" Kinnikuman sculpts I have ever seen besides the Part 30 vintage Kinkeshi sculpts (due to the price some of these go for). I have only seen this sculpt in Red, Green & Blue so far in 2017 (I was actively searching for it but maybe it was more available in the wild in 2016).

 

A Green sculpt recently sold for a little more than 11,000 yen and even at that price, I would consider it a "good deal" (subjective).

This was the 2nd to last piece I acquired from this Part so far and this sculpt of good ol' Warsman sells for a premium!

Nice memory of picking up these two sculpts in Hong Kong (2017) and haggling on the price (got a great deal!). An awesome and massive sculpt!

ラーメンマン

 

Might get confused with the Part 30 version of Ramenman but the "tell-tale" sign is the positioning of his pony tail (left or right side)...

サタンクロス

 

Great story about acquiring this sculpt in Hong Kong last year:

 

I only paid about 40 EUR for this sculpt (give or take with the exchange rate) and I found out from Ericnilla that these usually go for $300!!!

 

I always lump everything together when buying toys abroad (even if they have separate prices) and divide by the number of items and just low ball first (with my intended amount hopefully coming somewhere in the middle).

 

Usually that works and also...

 

I did the old "I am walking away routine" (the woman was on the phone with her son); after a couple of seconds she came after me (I think at least in Hong Kong the market for Kinkeshi or Keshigomu is not that high). Maybe the son felt: "I am not gonna sell these otherwise".

 

The store also had the Flesh version!

 

I really wanted the Flesh version of Satan Cross from Part 3 (especially because it had the insert from Part 3) but the owner would not budge on the price.

 

My final offer was 1400 Hong Kong Dollars and the owner eventually took it (the day before I bough this sculpt, I offered her 800 HKD for three Part 3 figures and that was about 28 EUR a figure)

 

I guess the seller thought I would rather have a sale of about 240 EUR total than not (Usually am pretty good about haggling in markets: Mexico City or Thailand etc)

 

What is even more nuts to me is that I ended up paying more for a Marty Hansen resculpt of this in Flesh than the original!

I saw this sculpt in person at the Osaka Mandarake branch and didn't pick it up.

 

Months later once I started to actively collect the 1991 line, I remembered seeing this and the Nakano Part 3 sculpts in the Osaka store.

 

I simply emailed them and asked if they still had them and luckily they still did! The price was super affordable in comparison to what I see them sell for on yahoojapan.

This was the 2nd sculpt I bought from the Osaka Mandarake branch. It is also the last original sculpt released in the 1991 collection and thus ending the 2nd and final wave of vintage releases (until the 1999 & 29th anniversary re-releases).

A Flesh arrival today, with a torn antenna...but I paid about 20 EUR and this sculpt usually sells for a heck of a lot more (so I'll take it)...
