The Ultimate Grade will cost you more than your monthly mortgage and car payment combined!  You cannot make this stuff up.  Apparently they imported the tusks from Russia... Only in Japan mates!

Five Star Toy Kinnikuman Collab Color Spectrum

Five Star Toy's Wonderful World of Color
Five Star Toy is ratcheting up their Nostalgic Sofvi Collection production with the announcement of their new FST Collaboration Color Spectrum.  The shops listed below can now collaborate with Five Star to release blank sculpts from the existing Kinnikuman catalog in their own exclusive branded colorway.

While stores like TOYFUL have been doing this for quite some time now, it is exciting to see other toy heavyweights like Hobby Net, Yamashiroya, and Ganking jumping into to the mix.  Ganking will ship overseas, so I cannot wait to see some slick green Kinnikuman vinyl on my shelf!

Five Star Toy x Flesh | BamBam88 x Red | Yamashiroya x Blue | Hobby Net x Yellow | Ganking x Green | dune x Clear Lamé | KIN29SHOP x Black | TOYFUL x Pink | 8-Style x Gold

Kinnikuman Classic Match Tickets

Kinnikuman Classic Match Commemorative Tickets
Included with select copies of Kinnikuman vol 38

These tickets represent some of the greatest matches in Kinnikuman history, and are without a doubt some of my favorite collectibles to date.  They are printed on very high quality paper, and even come complete with detachable ticket stubs.  Each ticket honestly looks like it was issued for an actual Japanese wrestling event.  No attention to detail was overlooked, with every important aspect of the historical matches being based on facts straight from the comic.
