Damn. People seem to love a “…a nice tight fit.”
Trite orifice humor aside, $697 is an absurd price.
I’ll spare all of you a re-writing of this post.
I have realized, every day, I am becoming more and more of an outsider to M.U.S.C.L.E. figure collecting. I’m not just talking about prices; it’s everything. Don’t get me wrong, I’m stuck being a fan of M.U.S.C.L.E. for the rest of my life. But when I look broadly at M.U.S.C.L.E. “commerce” I feel separate from it. It’s like reading about a war in a textbook versus being in the war.
But I do have a 100% serious question, “Does anybody have Red #68, #131, #134, #135, and #139?”
I’m asking because I wonder if these figures weren’t actually production figures.I’m not saying they aren’t real M.U.S.C.L.E. figures. I know what it is like to have a real M.U.S.C.L.E. figure, but know there is only one of them.
I’ve never heard anybody talk about this idea, which is why I wanted to share it.
If 25 collectors post their Red #134, then clearly he was a production figure. (Or, at least, as common as SHA.) But if nobody has these figures, then what if the story is…different?
I’m not 100% sure what the narrative becomes, but I’m hoping to hear some thoughts and see some pictures.
There is “evidence” of a Red #68, but it’s part of the $7600 drama. Not the strongest piece of evidence to build a valid argument for it’s existence.
The auction price didn’t hit the reserve. Do you know the final top bid? $29.
I couldn’t look at the BIN’s this week. Sorry guys. It was too much. I could only stomach the auctions – and even that was pretty tough.
– $1 for the “uncommon pair.”
– 21 figures starting at $0.99.
– I like the “little man” the best.
– Started at $0.01. Love this!!!
– I know why “motu” was used to keyword spam, but I was still surprised.
That felt like a good ending.
Have a great weekend everybody!
