Showcase #26: Kinnikuman Amada Mini-Kinkeshi/Amada Daishi

 

A couple of weeks ago on the boards I noticed the Amada Kinkeshi brought up and it peaked my interest. Yet another collection/set I was not aware of! It sort of lead me through the "rabbit hole" (hahaha). I acquired some when I bought lots of Deka and sold them (I regret that now!); I try to collect one piece/collection at a time.

 

Amada is a company name that had a license to the Kinnikuman characters. They are smaller than regular Kinkeshi (but not always) and the gashapon price was for 20 yen!!!

 

Already a discussion topic in 2011 here at LRG: http://www.littlerub...showtopic=37951

 

Also discussed on LRG in 2015 with pictures in an attempt to provide an archive: http://www.littlerub...howtopic=227423

 

If you check out the famous first issue of REX Magazine 2008 they talk about the Amada Kinkeshi and give it a spread of 6 pages. According to the magazine it had 10 parts total (so 100 figures total but a ton more if you count the color variations).

 

These Keshi pop up in the wild quite often and as I understand it they are officially licensed. Often they are wrongly referred to as Bootleg and in one Japanese site I even read that this is where the "Train Man" Kinkeshi came from (I guess that would mean the other rare Kinkeshi are also Amada?).

 

I own 2 Daishi (one with the Kinkeshi and one without) but I wonder why Part "7" is the only part I find information for online (especially images).

 

I have yet to find a complete checklist online or even how to tell which are Amada/distinguishable traits (some you can tell by the rubber sculpts and something I call peeling around the mold). But often I confuse them with Poppy Kinkeshi...

If anyone has better information please post it here or if anyone has any Amada Daishi let me know!

Some recent Amada acquisitions (70 total) but its frustrating because even if marked on the back; its often difficult to tell if the sculpt is not a bootleg (unless it's completely unmarked but even then some bootlegs have the YSNT marking too).

 

I have not seen a complete checklist for these anywhere online besides a few pictures. But nothing complete; I have seen the sculpts in the standard Flesh, Green, Blue, Yellow, & Red colors but also some in Pink!

 

I put them each in an individual bag and vending machine capsule; I used the two Daishis I already owned and two old gumball machines (flea market finds) and for now that's were they will be stored.

"Party Time" Kinnikuman! You might recognize the suit from the ending credits of the anime :)

An interesting Neptune Man sculpt; I once saw this sculpt (the pink one) in a lot on yahoojapan and the Japanese seller described it as "rare" but I don't know for sure since I know so little about the Amada line (I know the VTR and Mammoth Man sculpts etc are premium Keshi; I saw the thinner & smaller VTR sculpt for sale during my last Japan trip for a pretty penny)

These have the same markings as Poppy keshi which makes it more difficult to figure out. I have 100+ sculpts with that marking but cannot tell the two lines apart..

I just call these all mini kinkeshi, or popy minis. They are almost always mixed together in lots.

Amanda released regular sized figures as well that I actually call Amanda kinkeshi, since they look like they are part of the original 418 set but are unique.

You mean sculpts like these right? I also have the Puyo sculpt as well which is bigger than the other vintage release.

Where do the 16 Wanted Supermen fall into (Trainmman, VTR & Mammoth Man etc)?

Are they also Amada or just bootlegs?

Not sure who made the contest winning super rares, most likely Amada, but could be another outside party.

This is the Amada set I was talking about.

Thank you for posting the link again (I had it saved at some point and lost it). I have 2 Japanese "Go-To" websites when it comes to checklists etc (I hope they never get taken down since both have not been updated in quite some time).

 

Random but I have at least 8 of the 19 in Flesh from the link (I acquired them in a bag of mixed Kinkeshi in Japan); I was wondering if they were Amada since they are 3.5 cm etc.

 

Question Answered!

3.5cmシリーズ Mini-Kinkeshi

 

To further add to the Amada or Mini-Kinkeshi's already long list of variants and series; thanks to Eric Nilla I was able to cross out/identify some in my collection.

 

According to this link this particular set has 19:  http://kinkesisamura...ti/35senti.html

 

The Japanese text loosely translated reads like this:

 

"このシリーズは、同じアマダシリーズでも、通所のものよりズシッとしています。
日本地図の書いてあるキン肉マンは、プラネットマンとの対戦を再現したものであり、意外と人気があり、良く知られていますが、他のものは意外と知らない人も多いのではないでしょうか。
私も、キン肉マンは気に入っています。
アイアンコマンド、木木人の造形も好きですね。"

 

"This series is more frustrating than the regular ones even in the same Amada series.
The Kinnikuman that the Japanese map is written is a reproduction of the battle with Planet Man, it is surprisingly popular and well-known, but there are many people who do not know other things unexpectedly. I like Kinnikuman as well. Iron command, I also like the shaping of trees."

 

I have 8 in my collection but I have no idea were to put these in terms of release date but sooner or later they will be displayed alongside my other Kinkeshi because some of the sculpts are completely different and "original".

 

If anyone has more, please hit me up!

The following Kinkeshi I acquired in a lot from Japan; it is a Mini Popy/Amada Kinkeshi. It has a clear YSNT marking on the back and the "P" for Popy. It is slightly smaller than the 3.5 in sculpts.

I saw a link in Japanese website about the Robot looking dude being a "Rare" but I think the person might be misinformed?

However I have never seen this character in Kinkeshi/Keshigomu form besides Flesh & Green and outside the Mini Kinkeshi/Amada line (the character did appear in the Kinnikuman Manga).

I Found this article/blog from 2015 about the Robot Popy (the person confuses this with a Pachi): https://blogs.yahoo....8/16518002.html

Translated text using Google :

"Common, Pinchon style kin erase.

Everyone, even if I collect collection of kin magazines sometimes I will encounter this superman? Both hands are scissors, the face is a retro robot style. A mischievous design, everything is a mob.

There are two distinctive corners on the back. And, © Y - S.N.T stamp.

As for this meaning, was it "Yunitama Tamago - Shueisha company. Nippon Television. Toei" ... was it? To have this inscription is to remove the regular kin (no confidence w).

Well I guess this guy knew that it also appeared properly in the main part of "Kinnikuman"? Scene in which the superhumans are resuscitated with the light of the mask of the "coal of golden mask", the unified peace mask.

I'd like you to see the superhuman on the right, who is pleased with "ya-ya" and guts pose (?). Its characteristics are perfectly consistent.

· Three rounds of forehead.
· Mask shape
· Scissors on both hands
· Design of waist
· Horn of back

Kin eraser has been developed as a regular series like Greider or Silver Liki, but has not been circulated on the market, there are cases where Mobu Giants are circulating as genuine like this"

 

I wondered about the Amada Kinkeshi coming out before or after the vintage 418 Kinkeshi line?

 

I figured the Robot was Popy; in Mandarakes REX Magazine from 2008 they have this mini popy kinkeshi six page spread on 10 sculpts like VTR & Mammoth Man for example.

 

But the Robot doesn't fall under that category?

 

The world of Kinkeshi is so fascinating, the more I collect the more stuff I bump into :)

I recently got another Robot Mini-Kinkeshi sculpt in Green to go along with my Flesh sculpt.

 

I have seen him in Blue but I wonder if besides the Yellow & Red if he came in other colors like Pink or Emerald?

I have 1 or 2 pink popy keshi dudes, not him though. I'll have to remember to check to see if they have markings. I just remember that the sculpts matched ones I already had marked as popy.

 

Also, I have a transparent gummy one too that is a popy sculpt but is unmarked and a bit smaller.

I wish a checklist was available for the entire Amada Mini Kinkeshi releases (boxes & the gashapon 20 yen releases that had the Super Rare sculpts) including the 3.5 cm Kinkeshi...gives me an idea.

Its fascinating to see other legit colors released for the Mini-Kinkeshi line besides the main five with markings.

 

The same could be said about the regular Kinkeshi as well.

Do you think he was more common a couple of years ago? because I search listings on yahoojapan daily (haha) and from almost 11,000 hits daily over 2 months I have only found him two times (the green one I bought that I saw in a lot and the blue one).

Of course I have only been actively searching for him in the last two months but I didn't see him pop up before. The flesh one I acquired in a lot from my last trip to Japan.
