Frank or Kin?

Frank or Kin?

The University of M.U.S.C.L.E. needs your help! Can you identify this figure?

Is it a Frankenstein-like Amalgam Figure or simply a Kinnikuman Kinkeshi?

Please post your answer in the Comments section below – and even if there is an answer, feel free to corroborate or refute it.

    Looks like Popy Mini Ashuraman.

    The amount of excessive flashing on it alone alludes to it not being a legitimate Kin figure.

    As far as the sculpt goes, it would appear to be an amalgam, using parts from various Kin figures, though it is obviously using Ashuraman as it’s basic framework.

    Any chance that more detailed photos can be provided?

    It looks like a Frankenstein’d figure from the flashing and such, and the detail doesn’t look like any Kinkeshi I’m familiar with.

    OK, so based on Eric’s pictures, that is a legit sculpt, but it still appears to be a bootleg, like the yellow one he has shown.

    Im leaning more to a kinkeshi bootleg. Im not 100% sure but I think I seen this particular sculpt in Kinkeshi lots on YHJ auctions.

    It looks like I have my answer – it’s neither.

    Thank you to everyone for their help!
