Stir Up Saturday – Tommy and LRG


Header Card – Front

Tommy Tanker

Nobody liked this figure as much as I did. How do I know? Because I couldn’t give this figure away.

I still love Tommy. I loved him so much that I partnered with Triclops Studio to sell a red version of the figure. The Michael Dukakis header card made me laugh.

I still have plenty of them. Nobody liked this figure as much as me. It feels like a shame. It feels like this figure should have easily found a home with M.U.S.C.L.E. collectors.

Further proof that holiday posts suck. For the 4th of July I recycled a picture I had taken for the site’s first 4th of July. I still like the picture, but holiday posts are done.

Five years ago I was wishing LRG a happy 10-year anniversary.

Happy 10 Year Anniversary to LittleRubberGuys.com!


This year LRG celebrated 15 years.

In the ever changing digital world that blows my mind. It’s even more amazing given how Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook have transformed how collectors can talk to each other. I don’t think it has made it better – just easier and, potentially, larger.

To get to 15 years with UofM I would need to keep it going until 2024. I would be approaching 50 years old. My oldest would be around 25 and my youngest 22 years old. Wow. That’s hard to imagine.

Harder yet – still having things to post about. In 2024 M.U.S.C.L.E. figures will have debuted 39 years ago. Even with my glacial pace the Figure Guide will be done. How much more inspiration from M.U.S.C.L.E. figures will drive Art 300?

Hopefully we get a yearly release of the new Kinnikuman kinkeshi. That would put us around volume 18. That seems possible. Maybe.
