Showcase #15: Tag Team Deka Sets
These are some fun sets! I am in the process of buying display cases for my collection so I have been photographing my collection and doing inventory. Hence the entire topic posts (haha).
I am not sure on the exact Japanese name of the sets so I just labeled them “Tag Team Deka”. Once again Mandarakes REX Magazine issue #6 2015 (which has become my bible in regards to collecting/checklists) has a two page spread and more information (Pages 50 & 51).
Obviously inspired by the Kinkeshi pairs but on a larger scale (most are between 6-9cm tall). So they go along well with the other Dekas.
The set consists of 15 pairs total and are quite easy to acquire loose and are almost always a part of Deka lots from Japan. Some sets are more difficult to acquire but its difficult to put a price tag on them in terms of value etc
For display purposes they are not ideal but an acrylic nail polish case displays them quite well or especially a wrestling ring.
However you might get some weird looks or questions from visitors, family or firends when looking at the figures displayed (if I had a dollar for everytime someone said: "Are those guys having sex with each other?"
I never planned on collecting these and just got them set by set along the way. Until I needed two more to complete my collection then I had to go through the process of hunting on yahoojapan.
The hardest pairs to collect are #10 (Ashuraman & Warsman) and #11 (Black Hole & Benkiman)
