Counterfeit Packaging Update

This 28-pack caused some confusion within the M.U.S.C.L.E. community for two main reasons: (1) it was called “MUSCLEMANIA”; and (2) it had a 28-pack tray and figures from a standard M.U.S.C.L.E. 28-pack. The MUSCLEMANIA name appears to be nothing more than a coincidence. The graphics, characters, and literally everything but the name differ from the more widely known Select version of MUSCLEMANIA figures. The tray appears to be an attempt by the seller to sell a “complete” product – although the apparent loss of the original tray could go all the way back to the original child owner. They may have simply switched the trays of two 28-packs with one being authentic and the other being counterfeit.



If you have any counterfeit packaging that you would like added to this section, then please send them to the University of M.U.S.C.L.E. with a brief explanation. Thank you in advance for all submissions!

    Ay Chad.
    Just found this.Yep I was the auction winner
    for this MUSCLEMANIA 28-pack,but the tray IS
    different and not the same color M.u.s.c.l.e.
    blue tray,MUSCLEMANIA has a darker blue tray
    and it does’nt have the lifted square at the bottom left corner of the tray.Thought I mentioned something to that effect on LRG.
    Still have put up more pics of them soon,once
    I get to find the post.
