Showcase #24: 2008/29th Anniversary Kinkeshi Part 1- Part 11
This is probably already old information to old-school LRG members but I notice that from time to time newbies/people like me at some point have asked about release numbers, parts and sculpts. So for posterity and as a way to display my collection I will do this write up. So I apologize for the repetitive information
Between the original vintage 1980’s Kinkeshi releases, Kinnikuman returned to Kinkeshi form in 1991 and then again 17 years later in 2008. However am not sure if anything else was re-released in between so please correct me.
During the 29th anniversary of Kinnikuman and the release of the DVD/Re-issue Kinkeshi set in 2008, Kinnikuman had a resurgence of Kinkeshi releases.
These consisted of 11 parts with each part having 20 sculpts total (or 60 figures total per part if you count the released colors: Flesh, Blue & Red).
They came in two (tag teams) and in different color combinations (for example 1 Flesh and 1 Red etc).
Part 1 was released in March of 2008 and these Kinkeshi and all subsequent parts were not made of the same rubber material of the 1980’s. They were also different in size to the original Kinkeshi.
The 29th Anniversary DVD/418 Re-issue set Kinkeshi were slightly bigger than these reissues (you can see the comparison picture).
Here we also saw the distinctive molding mark of 4 circles on the back and the Y/S.N.T B. China mark as well.
Which is interesting since the 29th Anniversary DVD/418 Re-issue set Kinkeshi had 3 molding circles on the back meaning they were sculpted first (I think).
Chronological order of 29th Anniversary reissues in 2008
-Part 1 (Released in March 2008)
-Part 2 (Released in June 2008)
-Weekly Playboy Green Kinkeshi (Released in August 2008)
