Hi BB,
these MUSCLE men are really surprising. Never seen these before. The biggest surprise to me is that a company like Mattel brought up such a creative collection. I thought they had these GI Joe stuff, few figures and you could always tell at a first glance who was "good" and who was "bad". These MUSCLE collection is just a total surprise. Very simple on the one hand, and then really touching about anything subject around. Were they a success?
For you, yes. For me as well.
Looking forward to new discoveries
Greetings from my Norman orchard
Michael

Thank you Peter and Michael, for taking interest in my quest here to collect a few that i'm posting as the last days of this awful year fall away and are duly assigned to infamy within world history!


:coffee: And now as i sip my Tea,lets carry onwards shall we?

Hot shot bolts are let fly from ancient castle slits and battlement alike. Well at least in my imagination.

:winky: Don't belive WingNut,we smilies are always wide awake on Benno's Figure Forum.
:cowboy: As is BB,it seems Pards!

:coffee: Yes i am awake between a few naps throughout my day and what better way for myself, then typing a few stories within lacy fancy dreams.

From the little white cottage surrounded by the evergreen of Fiddle Wood, UK.
Take care my friends,and stay safe and well. BB

I was a young teen when these came out in the U.S.A. My younger brother had some of them. I really did not think much of them at the time...they did not really fit in with the other toys and collectibles we had at the time.

Now I can appreciate how delightfully unique they are. And when painted well, they are simply marvelous.

Okay here's a bit of trivia if it has not been ready posted: what does the acronym M.U.S.C.L.E. stand for?

:mrgreen: Then BB,looked it up. :eh: To confirm it! :sst: playing with letters is a good game to play.
:coffee: Very true little Button! :winky: However is BB, correct ? :eh: Or wrong? :cowboy: And who cares?

:coffee: As i close, the first ASDA Delivery spot we could manage to book on Line in 9 months arrived!

Well Peter,
They all have numbers,and yes many have names but mostly they are Anagrams !
I have written some anagram names myself for fun ,and i guess i'll do even more
along the metaphysical trail of characteristic story writing.

THE BISHOP FISH

I'm a bit late on this thread. Excellent collection of M.U.S.C.L.E. / Kinnikuman figures! Do you intend to paint them ? One of these minis will be on display on one of the last images of my 2020 Advent Calendar :)

A large job lot i bought after a very large deduction was offered from the Seller.
Twenty Three out of this 28 i did not have, but the real bonus is that three are on the rare list to find.
Well upon my rare list anyway.

Image

:coffee: i need another,'Washing Tub!', to stash a few more in.
:eh: Take the label off BB.
:mrgreen: Do that and two large areas remain very sticky to handle a touch upon.
:sst: they most certainly do. :eh: "Bah Hum Bug!" WingNut tongue twisted out.
:sst: i suppose that bb at a push could paint over it ?
:coffee: There is an Invisible Man,i could paint if only i could find him.

The sign of the times are a turning, so stay safe,stay well. i sincerely mean it. BB

Best part of the last picture is the mug, whahahaha
No just kidding, always a pleasure to see how much different figures you use
even if it is in a washing tub!
Keep up the good work!
