Dr. Bombay 10-Pack

With some M.U.S.C.L.E. collectors there were concerns over the authenticity of the Dr. Bombay 10-pack. One collector, Eric P., believed it was authentic and privately purchased the Dr. Bombay 10-pack. But Eric is a rationale, communicative, and open-minded collector. He wanted to uncover the truth – no matter what it turned out to be in the end.

Auction Watch #115

Ok, there are some other M.U.S.C.L.E. auctions spotlighted – but is anything as epic as the Salmon Geronimo Shouting auction?

New Alpha Non-Poster M.U.S.C.L.E. Figure: Salmon Geronimo Shouting

The discovery is indeed a new Alpha Non-Poster figure. However, the aspect that makes it huge, monstrous, game-changing, and paradigm-shifting is its color: Salmon.

Editorial: The M.U.S.C.L.E. Rule of Two (MRT)

With M.U.S.C.L.E. collecting the simple, and commonly held, idea is that auctions often come down to two bidders. But the M.U.S.C.L.E. Rule of Two (MRT) is really broader than simply two bidders. It represents behavior more than two standard deviations from the mean on any M.U.S.C.L.E. topic.



Buy, Watch, & Search

While M.U.S.C.L.E. collectors may talk about M.U.S.C.L.E. figures quite often, news about M.U.S.C.L.E. figures is far and few between. Not today.

Auction Watch #69 (he he)

It seems like this Auction Watch #69 should be fueled with passion, desire, and maybe a little name calling.

Philosophy 100: Part 1 – The 2006 Color Code Discovery

The 2006 “Color Code” discovery is most directly attributed to two M.U.S.C.L.E. collectors, known by their screen names – “Soupie” and “Universal Ruler Supreme.”

But what is the “color code?”

Editorial: The B-sides of M.U.S.C.L.E.

Last week I was taking pictures of my Non-Poster Kinnikuman figures. I enjoyed reexamining the figures and thinking about their place in M.U.S.C.L.E. history. Then I came across my Ramenman with Dragon. It put an end to my enjoyment. I wondered, “What makes this special? Why do I even care?”
