The Top 10 Worst M.U.S.C.L.E. Figures
By Professor Terry

Armstrong (Figure #88) – A guy in what could be deemed a space mask with his hands up in surrender, not an intimidating character.

Shishkabob (Figure #8) – Looks like Kinnikuman from the back and then you turn him around to see a butt ugly crossed eyed guy.

Powerfulman (Figure #205) – I could have used Strongman, Soldierman or Phoenixman here, they are all similar in that they are plain and don’t add much value to the series.

Kington (Figure #32) – He’s a pig, literally a pig on 2 legs. The Pigman lives!

Cyborg SW26 (Figure #91) – Lets get a regular looking figure and write the initials SW26 on his forehead. A great idea……

Chavo Kerori (Figure #160) – Here is a snooty looking figure that looks quite wimpy. From a pure looks perspective, this figure should be #1 on this list.

Kinnikuman Mariposa B (Figure #222) – I could have used #210 Kinnikuman Soldier here as he’s nearly as bad though at least he poses. Who puts their fists above their head and then turn their head sideways? I’ve always felt this figure looked unnatural.

Iron Sweats Chojin (Figure #106) – I really can’t pinpoint why but I’ve always disliked this figure. I’ve always thought it was a thimble on his head.

Terryman C (Figure #29) – It’s Zombie Terryman. Really, it looks like a zombie with the ripped pants and that terrible facial expression, even the hairline looks receded. Just a bad bad figure. But not as bad as……

Kinnikuman “#234” – The ring version. I absolutely love figure #141. It’s not the sculpt. You have the chance to make a completely new Kinnikuman figure. You’ve just created a wonderful version of Buffaloman. So what do you do with Kinnikuman? Completely rip off the existing figure #141 but make it a little smaller.

    Enjoyed reading this – disagree so much on so many of your choices, but your reasoning for your #1 choice was sound and won me over.

    Thanks for your comment Jason. Lists like this are always 1 persons opinion and meant to be tongue in cheek 🙂
    Glad you enjoyed the read!
