Japanese Board Game Figures
by Professor Terry

To be honest, I am assuming that these are board game figures because of the round bases on each figure.

The figures themselves are early Kinnikuman sculpts which 95% of M.U.S.C.L.E. figures are from. I have 11 different sculpts. I assumed that is a complete set. How many different choices do you need for a board game?

I do however, think there is another orange figure to make up a total of 12 (two of each color).

The texture of these figures is identical to kinkeshi rubber. The color of the figures is where I think these get interesting though. I am certain I have seen these figures in multiple colors. If that is indeed the case, could there be six of each figure available?

If so, I really like the orange figure as it is a color you never see in Kinnikuman. Pink isn’t seen that often either, mainly in bootleg figures. Could these be a vending machine bootleg?

Comments, and any new insights, are very welcome this week!
