Keshi toys were sold in gachapon machines, as "candy/premium toys" (ex: buy a box of chocolate and get a little freebie figure), individually packaged with bags and headers, in sets, boxes, games...you get the picture.
I thought it would be fun to take a look at some of the varieties of packaging for these remarkably detailed little figures.
|Here are some Gegege no Kitaro figures in traditional bag/header card packaging.|
|Robo Hachan keshi set with backing board + clear plastic window|
|1979 Superman keshi. They made a huge variety of Superman figures for this series, in all sorts of poses.|
|Dougram set. Another cool thing about keshi is they sometimes came with little accessories, making them fun to play with. But these days certain sets are extremely difficult to complete since the add-ons are nearly always missing. :p|
|Interesting little "magnet mask" Kamen Rider item. I love the bubble heads on the header card. The KR Bunch. It's a story...|
|"Ultraman Family" set. I think these may have been pencil toppers.|
