Stir Up Saturday – It’s a Quikie


Did you think I couldn’t spell or did you understand it was Quik-related? God I hope it’s the latter. Not because I want people to think it’s funny, but I want my meaning to be understood.

Or not. Whatever. It’s a M.U.S.C.L.E. website.

Five years ago their were only two posts. Lazy? Busy? Both? Something else? Who knows. What I do know is that we had a Quik Update on the site. I have always wondered if this update was the catalyst for this Quik nightmare. There was a Quik update posted a month later and it just seemed like so many tubes coming into the world at once. I wondered if at least one was purchased and became the infamous tube?

I don’t know. I have no proof. It is something I have simply considered. What do you think?

The Epilogue from five years ago ties in nicely to some current events. The easiest connection is the $7600 lot. That lot, plus the Quik nightmare, became big pieces of the eBay M.U.S.C.L.E. Shenanigans post. And players in that write-up were also featured in this week’s Epilogue. It sure is a small world.

The AOTW #8 from that five-year-old Epilogue also reminded me of a recent sale. I don’t believe that lot sold for $219.99. I can’t find any evidence, and the AOTW #8 was defeated by AOTW #9. I stopped tracking the story.

That’s why someone paying $100 for these five figures blows my mind. There is not a Class A version of the figure. The Light Blue is Class B – but nobody pays extra for that. You’re basically buying $5 worth of figures.

People aren’t overpaying for many Class A figures. How stupid do you have to be to overpay that much money?

I’m seriously asking.
