Auction Watch #210

The first auction, Vintage 1980s Lot Of (7) M.U.S.C.L.E. Men Figures Monsters In My Pocket, really scratches an itch for me. I like the Stumpy figure, but I love him in that color.

But here’s the funny thing, for me, about FLAF’s – I don’t need all the extra shit and I don’t need the figures. I don’t need all the extra M.U.S.C.L.E. figures that tend to come with a FLAF figure. If five extra figures are in the lot, then I just have five extra figures without any purpose. I don’t really have the time or energy to do anything with them.

Of course, the Final 10 plus a few FLAF’s would be ok.

As much as I love the FLAF’s; I don’t actually need them – which makes it hard to justify spending any money on them.

The second lot, c1985 Mattel MUSCLE/M.U.S.C.L.E. Men Figures Huge Lot of 99- Rares??, makes me remember when I was a M.U.S.C.L.E. gambler. I would purchase lots, unable to see everything, and hope that I found a little treasure. There came a time in my collecting life that I had a better chance of actually gambling in Vegas with better odds.

However, M.U.S.C.L.E. gamblers will never die. There will always be someone willing to roll the dice. This lot, with its unattractive $59.99 opening bid, is going to be won by a gambler. In fact, I think only gamblers will bid on it.

The third auction, VINTAGE m.u.s.c.l.e. men 1985? wild wrestlers, is posted for only one reason. The second auction picture made me laugh.

I don’t know why it made me laugh.

Take a look at the picture. I posted this one unedited and uncropped. I’m hoping someone else gets a laugh.

If not, then I’m a little bit embarrassed that I laughed. It makes me feel a little crazy.

Oh, fuck it. Crazy is fine.

At least I’m able to laugh.
