Showcase #51: 2017 Kinkeshi Premium Vol. 4
I ordered this two weeks ago from Mandarake Nakano and it was held in customs for 4 days and I finally got it home today!
I dont think you should be paying more than $100 for the Premium sets (except for Vol 2 which has kept a steady yet outrageous price of 12,000 yen + shipping).
I bought mine for 6,000 yen + 1,440 yen shipping using AIR SP (a total of about $65):
Right now Mandarake has a Premium Vol. 4 set available for 9,000 yen (circa $79) and shipping should be between 1,500 to 2,000 yen range (circa $17):
If you are patient you can find them at Mandarake for cheaper prices (wait 2 more months and it will be back to 5,000/6,000 yen).
Vol. 1 is listed at 6,000 and Vol. 3 is listed at 5,000 yen for example.

I am so glad that Kinnikuman has had a Kinkeshi renaissance!
Since the four Premium releases we have had counting the exclusive 3 pack and three new gashapon releases (including the tag team sculpts and new color sculpts) a total of 139 Kinkeshi total!!!!
