Showcase #23: Kinnikuman Nisei (Kinnikuman II) Color Set Part 1 (8 Total)

 

I am not sure about calling these figures "Kinkeshi". Although it is the special name used for Kinnikuman rubber figures ( KinnikuEraser) but some people also call the small gashapon/capsule figures of any rubber material by the same name (I have a Japanese student and he told me the same thing; for example calling Dragonball Keshi Kinkeshi despite it being a different series etc).

 

Since Kinnikuman is the "Godfather" of the rubber figure craze, I will for posterity refer to these as KInkeshi.

 

Call me crazy but I am a completist when it comes to collecting full releases of the Kinnikuman Kinkeshi/figures. So I consider these a part of the history of releases as well.

 

When I first saw these they did not catch my eye because I love the original rubber look of the vintage Kinkeshi (plain and simple but they have a charm to them). I was also was not yet collecting anything Ultimate Muscle/Kinnikuman Nisei yet.

 

The first series consists of 8 figures total and they come in color and are made of a much stronger rubber material. They are readily available at economic prices online (yahoojapan and even amazonjapan). You can buy them individually, with inserts and with or without capsules.

 

Collecting these is not as much of a hurdle as collecting other Kinnikuman Kinkeshi lines. The figures might not get the love the original Kinkeshi do but they are awesome and on display/in person you really do have a much better appreciation for them, so if you see them at an affordable price snag 'em!

I own these figures as well, and I agree that they're very cool.
