Epilogue – Week of June 11th

#4 – Logo, Poster (from eBay auction)

Did you guys see this? I’m guessing that 99.9% of M.U.S.C.L.E. collectors didn’t care about it. For the 0.1% it’s proof that I was wrong.

There are now five undocumented combinations:

  • Package #1 – Thug Busters (No Logo, No Poster)
  • Package #2 – Cosmic Crunchers (Logo, No Poster)
  • Package #2 – Cosmic Crunchers (No Logo, No Poster)
  • Package #3 – Mighty Maulers (No Logo, No Poster)
  • Package #4 – Cosmic Showdown (No Logo, No Poster)

But with the discovery of the #4 (Logo, Poster) I believe #2 (Logo, No Poster) was also made. I believe the only unmade version of each box was the No Logo, No Poster. It is what I have always suspected, but it was just a gut feeling. I think this is proof.

Here’s the weirdest part. I was 99.9% sure I owned a #4 (Logo, Poster). I’m still 60% sure I have one somewhere, but I just can’t find it. Ugh. It wouldn’t be the first time.

I skipped all the Buy It Now listings this week. They seem like a colossal waste of time. There were only 263 listings with the Auction format, and many of them are this or that.

This seller does not know his audience. These are nice enough figures, but a hardcore collector isn’t spending $4.99 (plus shipping) for these two figures.
I thought the price made him an asshole. Nope. It was this, “returns ok with 20% restocking fee.”
$6. Jesus. I’m blaming this otherwise my brain would explode.
Starts at $0.99. Thank you. (I thought it was a Red #53 for one second.)
Also starting at $0.99. Thank you too!
This made me think of this. I realize it should probably be the other way around.
Speaking of video games and starting at $0.99.

There has only been one instance of talking about autonomous cars on this site. Here’s the second. I think it’s much more accurate. Feel free to shove this in my face if I am wrong.

Remember when UofM was the internet’s best source for Batman v Superman info? Then some Transformers 5 pictures showed up on Instagram. Then the state fucked up, cut tax incentives, and movie-making stopped in Michigan.

Anyways, I would recommend checking out this website if you ever liked seeing some of the Transformers 5 pictures I posted. He has broken down the trailer and has far better pictures. I imagine he used more than an iPhone.

Did you see what I did there? I tied the cars, self-driving, and Transformers together. Little victories.

One last addition to the post. I don’t know if you guys already saw this video. I loved it. It felt like a video of my boys watching Star Wars. I remember the joy those movies brought me. Watching The Force Awakens in the theater with my parents and my boys I was overcome with emotions more than once. Sometimes it wasn’t even the movie – I was just so happy. This made me happy too.
