Epilogue – Week of June 10th

Just when I say no other auction matters this week a fucking M.U.S.C.L.E. Nestle Quik tin shows up!

To me, this is even bigger that the Purple #153. This thing NEVER shows up. I can’t even imagine what it will go for. If I didn’t already have it, then the gloves would be coming off. And it looks to be in amazing condition. Hell, I’ll probably still put a bid in for this gem.

Some hardcore M.U.S.C.L.E. collector is going to be very happy.

Seriously, with a Purple #153 and Nestle Quik tin showing up I almost feel silly pointing out any other M.U.S.C.L.E. auctions.
Ha! I thought it said “Double Rare” at first glance.
The M.U.S.C.L.E. figures are the worst parts of this lot.
Looking for a SHA? Just buy this one. You’ll still have money for a washing machine.
This GI Joe shirt pulls from one of my favorite graphics. There goes another $22.
300 over-priced figures, but these are the auctions you dream about finding a Non-Poster figure in.
A General Veers figure. He he he.
The BIN is too high, but those boxes are in great condition.
Great idea, great branding, and great price point.
76 figures. Zero feedback. And missing hands. What could go wrong?
“rare pieces,” I wasnt going to bid until I saw that!
Not a game changer, but a nice mixed lot of 84 figures.

Also some important updates on the custom figure front:
ManZilla. Yes – the name sounds like a gay porno, but it might be in the hunt for best custom M.U.S.C.L.E. ever.
And that isn’t the only new custom from Namu-Niku and friends.
Speaking of customs, Flesh Clawshines are for sale again.
And Alec’s (Muscle Things) website has converted from a blog to message board.

Do you know what the Picture of the Week is? Of course it’s the M.U.S.C.L.E. Nestle Quik tin. I LOVE THESE THINGS! I don’t know what it is about them.

I’ve always said anything longer than a minute (for an internet video) is a lifetime. This post on BuzzFeed was music to my ears. And I guess eyes. Whatever. I was returning video tapes.

P.S. – This was like a look into my future. Except the TV will be a glass case of M.U.S.C.L.E. figures…and a Nestle Quik Tin. I better have a back-up.
