Sociology 200 and 300 will focus on contemporary M.U.S.C.L.E. culture.
Sociology 200 will highlight present-day children that have discovered, or been given the gift of, M.U.S.C.L.E. toys. If you have pictures of contemporary children playing with M.U.S.C.L.E. toys, please email the pictures to the University of M.U.S.C.L.E.. Please be sure to provide some explanation and context for the pictures, plus how the children learned about M.U.S.C.L.E. toys.
This is just one Sociology 200 example:My son had grabbed some extra figures that had been part of an eBay purchase. We sat for 20 minutes looking at the figures – counting figures, counting arms and legs, identifying the different colors and animals. Because I needed to clean-up and leave the house I told him he could pick three figures. He chose a Dark Blue #153 (which he called “Claw” without any prompt), a Purple #68 (which he calls Obi-Wan), and a Flesh #208 (which he calls Luke). The figures traveled with him that entire day and have become a constant plaything during bath time.
Sociology 300 will focus on adults that continue to be passionate about M.U.S.C.L.E. Collectors will need to complete a questionnaire and provide photojournalistic pictures of your collection. The focus of the pictures are not solely to highlight M.U.S.C.L.E. pieces, but rather how those pieces actually exist within the collectors life. If you have any questions about the questionnaire or pictures, please feel free to email the University of M.U.S.C.L.E..
Below are sample Sociology 300 pictures with a more photojournalistic approach:
