Showcase #7: Kinnikuman Tag Tournament Ring Sets
Before I put these in storage due to space I decided to take pics of them and put them up!
The ring sets are similar/identical to the Godaiju Kessen ring sets and I believe there’s even a box set with all the rings included in one set (Tatakae Ochu Chojin Tag Tounament set).
I have all seven individual releases in the set (I think there’s only 7 in the set according to my research) & they are just single rings in a respective color with a paper backing and some keshi.
My Box 5, Box 6 & Box 7 are mint and never opened…but one of the issues with the releases is the ropes are made from a particular type of rubber that degrades in time (however it’s easy to just flick off but still). I wish I had the space to really display them all together along with the Godaiju Kessen ring set (like a diorama).
Not particularly rare & I do see them from time to time on Yahoo Japan in various degrees and conditions. Some particular numbers are harder to come by than others, let alone all of them together.
I am sometimes a bigger fan of the box art than the actual product ( a la 28 Kinkeshi Box sets).
I order so much stuff that when I end up in customs here in Germany the woman knows me by name and her usual greeting is: "ah those little rubber men again?" (in German)
