Manufacturing Error Figures are an interesting subject. Perhaps the most difficult aspect of the subject is authenticity – especially when the error could have come well after production.

Auction Watch #28

One of the most mysterious, and fun, aspects of M.U.S.C.L.E. collecting relates to the Nestle Quik promotion (which is examined in Advertising & Promotion 300). Figures still sealed within the promotional package, which was enclosed in the Nestle Quik tin, are not often discovered. This week two figures have been discovered.

The 28-Pack

The 28-pack write-up has been long delayed because of the desire to add individual pictures of each 28-pack figure. Additionally, there are a few 28-pack pictures that also need to be taken. Instead of withholding the entire topic it seemed better to make the current information available; adding pictures and various improvements over time.
