Stir Up Saturday – Happy


I usually talk about the posts from five years ago in order. There’s no particular reason besides it’s easier when I’m copying and pasting the links. But when I start with a MMMM, in this case MMMM #29, I don’t always have a memory because I didn’t write it. And at certain points I had MMMM’s stacked, so I could have put this post together two weeks earlier.

I was ready to heap even more praise on the Ugly Cenicorn. I loved the figure then, I probably like looking back at it even more today.

But then I clicked on the Rampage Toys store and saw that I may have missed the Final Version of the Cupcake Luchador. It feels like Art 200, closer to what it is today, really started with Cupcake Luchador & ACE Luchador. I will be kind of sad if I don’t pick up the final version.

If you are reading this, then you know I’m a sucker for alliteration and Masquerading M.U.S.C.L.E. Figures still makes me smile. It is probably the most accurate label I have ever assigned something. All of those figures are pretending to be M.U.S.C.L.E. figures.

Look at that post also made me realize I still have some work to do. Future Strength need some pictures and the The W.R.E.S.T.L.E.R.S L.U.T.T.E.U.R.S need a decent write-up and to answer this question.

Have I ever shared the story of the photo to the right? I had always been a fan of MUSCLEMANIA. When the figures entered my collection I basically put them in a tub. As this website idea was starting I thought, “This might be a good section.”

I started sorting them and taking pictures. But I didn’t really know what I was sorting besides sculpt. There were little differences so I just kept spreading them out. I took the picture out of confusion. Maybe I would see something later? I didn’t. Until I had my first MUSCLEMANIA post. I thought it just looked cool.

I still think it looks cool, but it also reminds me of a day that feels long, long ago.

This Epilogue is all over the road. Comic boob review, eBay, pre-cursor to AOTW, Sam Tageson, and titties.

Five years later, Sam is alive and appears to be cancer free. Dude even stole my bit. That makes me so genuinely happy. When I Googled that kid I begged for the result not to be an obituary. It fills me with pure joy to see him smiling and living his life. I’m going to ride this happiness buzz for a lit but.

Have a great weekend!
