Showcase #27: LAWSON Kinnikuman Kinkeshi Set

 

When visiting Japan you will often bump into many Lawson convenience stores. It’s not uncommon for the Kinnikuman franchise to have cooperation with companies and or stores.

 

In October 2016 Lawson had a Kinkeshi promotion; the entire set having 5 sculpts total. They are reissued sculpts have a different marking on the back than usual reissues: Copyright Y/S-T B. CHINA & 4 circles (molding indicator) + serial number 2363523 for each figure.

 

According to the Lawson website the Kinkeshi were available on October 18 (Tuesday) starting at 7 o'clock and in order to get a Kinkeshi you had to exchange it for what I will call 3 proof of purchases from a lineup of particular brands of candy. That would entitle you to 1 Kinkeshi. What I don’t know is if they were available after the initial Tuesday or if they “sold out”. They are readily available online and I would recommend them to the completist (I own to sets for example: one opened and one sealed).

According to the information from the Lawson website:

 

-Please bring the 3 “confections” (Proof of purchase) and 1 kinkeshi directly to the cash register.
- Depending on the store, you may bring the target item to the cashier, and when you purchase, it may be exchanged for the prizes.

-"Kinkeshi" will be limited to 5 different characters for every single shop.
-With limited quantity, it will end as soon as they are gone.

-5 types in total, 30 in each store.

 

The sculpts released: Kinnikuman, Mongol Man, Buffalo Man, Akuma Shogun and Ashuraman

This answers the question I had watching NJPW last week about why everything said "Lawson" all over it
