I’m not trying to take a huge shit on the new ones, they’re fine WWE keshi figures. But the 2012 versions had a much stronger “M.U.S.C.L.E. feel” to them. Am I alone on that?
Can you image if that line had taken off? We could be into its fifth year. Damn.
I still think my three points (Cost, Playability, and Collectability) are applicable. In fact, that might be why I don’t like the new M.U.S.C.L.E. figures. Their cost seems ok. And the collectability is certainly there. I just don’t think they are good toys. Take a look at these two Alien figures. Those are statues; not toys. I know my boys would not be excited to play with these.
Maybe that’s it? M.U.S.C.L.E. always needs to be a toy first.
