Epilogue – Week of March 10th

Sorry. I know someone is going to say, “You just rang the dinner bell! This was under the radar!”

Is that ever true? Really.

M.U.S.C.L.E. collectors are like hound dogs. They always sniff out the good stuff, and this is some pretty good stuff. At first glance I see three Class A figures that jump off the screen:

  • Purple #1
  • Red #110
  • Purple #154

It feels like we’ve seen a Purple #1 more recently, but the last example I could find on the website is from 2015. Plus he’s popular and cool looking. The last Purple #154 I can prove was for sale came in 2011. I’m not trying to stoke the flames of this price tag, but that seems correct. Purple #154 is burned into my brain as being one of the harder figures I tracked down.

The last Red #110 I can document sold in 2014. It sold for $2.47. In this lot I imagine it will sell for a little bit more.

128 figures starting at $0.99.
I wish this lot started at $0.99.
Not an asshole; more of a comedian.
I get excited for paper – not plastic.
Are you fucking kidding me?
I do believe Ray Charles painted these.
Not the worst MUSCLEMANIA lot.
I like this color. (I bet this is sold by the time this posts.)
I would make this an AOTW, but this guy would have all his listings win.
Seriously, this guy is disqualified from all future events.
SC is going to push the price on this lot.
He’s dreaming.

Last week we crowned the second AOTW Battle of the Champions Fatal-Four Way Winner. I thought it would be a closer battle, but our winner utterly destroyed the competition. Who will these two champions take on in the future? Let’s start to find out.

I don’t mean to brag. Everybody, look at me! I found some of the biggest assholes – maybe ever! This group of combatants feels like a Battle of the Champions. I am inappropriately excited about this match up.

The AOTW #1 comes with a short story. Have you ever had someone wave at you and thought, “How the hell do I know this person?” And then it turns out they thought you were someone else. Or vice verse. That happened to me. I saw the $115 BIN for and open, fair condition 28-pack and thought, “Is this that Quik guy?” It wasn’t rickztoyz, but there was something that tricked my brain for a second. Maybe it was just the terrible price.

The AOTW #2 made me bubble with rage. I hate C.U.T.I.E. figures. Hate them. This asshole has a $50 BIN for one figure. Of course, he declared it “RARE.” I did a quick Google search, and one of the first images was this exact figure in a 4-pack. Look. I don’t know what upsets me the most: the price; the laziness; or that it’s a CUTIE.

The AOTW #3 earn their spot for two very specific reasons. The first is their use of the word “RARE.” The second is the $15 opening bid – not BIN, opening bid. Do they expect a bidding war for this dirty Flesh #56 figure? A $15 BIN would be absurd. A $15 opening bid is…it…it leaves me speechless.

Finally, the AOTW #4 with it’s $373.66 opening bid for $0.50 figure. And don’t forget the nearly $34 addition for shipping. If I believed in the fire and brimstone of end-of-days, then I would take this as a sign.

Since discovering that our ULTIMATE AOTW Battle of the Champions Fatal-Four Way Winner #1 is still trying to sell his empty box, I like to check in each week.

Seven weeks ago it had dropped down to $160. Six weeks ago the price was $149. She sat firm for a period at $145. Last week it dropped to $139 and continues to hold steady.

This is the level-of-asshole it takes to be an ULTIMATE champion. Amazing. She’s one of the greats.
