M.U.S.C.L.E. Kinkeshi Artwork by SmokinGun ~ 肉

I never grow tired of new artwork based on M.U.S.C.L.E. keshi, and these little gems from my pal, SmokinGun, are no exception.

There is something rather amusing about seeing Terri-Bull (aka Buffaloman) wielding a He-Man style battle ax, and Big the Budo ready to go Yojimbo on some poor unsuspecting keshi's arse...

A big Nama Niku thanks to SmokinGun for sharing these pics!  More over at

Yoiko Kinkeshi DVD Box Set ~ よゐことキンケシ~濱口が有野に全418体を紹介する企画

The Yoiko Kinkeshi DVD Box Set is an absolute must for any hardcore keshi head.  Even if you do not understand a lick of Japanese, the visual display and documentation of the entire original Kinkeshi line is impressive beyond belief.  The set is comprised of two DVDs and one of two exclusive 29th anniversary Kinkeshi figures designed by Yoiko.

The program stars the Japanese comedian duo, Yoiko (Arino and Hamaguchi), and is focused solely on the background, phenomena and celebration of Kinkeshi.

Yoiko basically introduce each figure separately while adding commentary about the history and background of each character. Hamaguchi is a huge Kinnikuman fan and is able to name almost every single figure in the collection.  Japanese comedy duo hilarity ensures as the two engage in a battle of words and whit regarding the Kinkeshi marathon they have embarked on.

The duo ends up spending over four hours (no kidding) introducing and commenting on all 418 Kinkeshi individually.  There is also an additional hour of bonus material including an exclusive meeting with Shimada-sensei of Yudetamago where he answers 29 of their questions about Kinkeshi. 

"The Kannin" designed by Hamaguchi

The program shows the original Daishi for each "part" of the Bandai line, and also features images of the individual capsule inserts.  There is also a bonus feature where you can go through and view a high res image of all all 418 keshi individually.

"Kinkeshiman" designed by Arino

The DVD set is available over at starting at only 2,350円 (In new condition) from Amazon Marketplace sellers.

Kinnikuman Shueisha Comics 1983 Anime Fair Poster

I picked up this vintage Shueisha Comics 1983 Anime Fair poster from an eBay seller in Japan, and thought I would share. 

The print is in fabulous condition considering it has been kicking around for 28 years, and I think it is really hard to beat some of the early color renditions of our favorite Choujins.

Here is another poster on eBay from the same seller featuring anime versions of Kinnikuman and Buffaloman.

Kinnikuman iPhone Stickers

Okay, so these Kinnikuman stickers were not specifically made for the iPhone, but they are small enough to effectively niku-ize the device. 

I picked up these adhesive wonders at the BamBam88 Muscle Shop in Kichijoji last year, and have never really thought of a good use for them until now.  Gone are the days of Trapper Keepers and book covers for this guy...

While I have never experienced dropped calls from the alleged iPhone antenna snafu, I went ahead and applied a Warsman sticker to the lower left "death grip zone" just to be safe ~ looks better than a strip of duct tape ~ 肉

Thought I would share a few pics and updates of the current Muscle Museum going on in Kumamoto.  Would love to see one of these in New York, LA, or Vegas...

Mr. Muscle himself, Santo, of BamBam88 is slated to appear on a radio show called Wota Radio on the 20th of this month.  More details about that can be found here.

The local Kumamoto station, RKK TV, will also be doing a televised segment on the Muscle Museum on the 20th as well.  Lots of excitement on the Kumamoto area for Kinnikuman!

Mandarake Kinkeshi Score ~ 肉

My buddy, Paco, was in Tokyo last weekend, and hit the Nakano Broadway to score a few Kinnikuman items for me. 

Paco using his Gaijin Powers for evil ~ snapping a pic inside the Microkan...ごめんなさい!

The Mandarake Microkan really offers some killer deals on random grab bags of Kinkeshi, and I would highly recommend checking them out if you are ever in the store. The one he ended up snagging me (shown above) included 90 figures and clocked in at only 1,050円.


I was quite impressed with the wide assortment of sculpts, including a few Popy Minis and a couple of sweet boots.

The Geronimo PansonWorks figure was only 312円, and I keep kicking myself for not asking him to grab more stuff...

Interested in ordering a Kinkeshi grab bag for yourself?  Contact Mandarake directly, and they can hook you up.

Kinnikuman Muscle Museum Heading to Kyushu!

Good news for Kinnikuman fans in Kyushu! The Kinnikuman Muscle Museum is heading to Oita and Kumamato later this month ~ 肉

The Muscle Museums are put on by BamBam88 in conjunction with Studio Egg, and consist of a large offering of Kinnikuman apparel and gear combined with a hearty display of original Kinnikuman artwork and collectibles.

Shimada-sensei has traditionally taken a day or two to do signings at these events, although no dates have been officially announced for these locations.

Kumamoto served as the backdrop for the whole Scramble for the Kinniku Throne arc, so this is a rather meaningful location for Yudetamago and fans of the series.  
Event locations and dates:
Oita Parco 1/7 - 1/11
Kumamoto Parco 1/15 - 1/23
