Two new figures to add to the Warped Figure archive thanks to Al.
UPDATE: One of the figures also belongs in the Manufacturing Error Figures Archive.
Future Strength figures have largely been referred to as counterfeit or bootleg M.U.S.C.L.E. figures by most M.U.S.C.L.E. collectors. In reality, Future Strength figures are a unique type of “counterfeit” figure – they are Masquerading MUSCLE’s.
This is the official archive for The University of M.U.S.C.L.E. as it attempts to document a full 233 counterfeit M.U.S.C.L.E. figure collection through the submission of collectors’ pictures. The collection is part of Art 100.
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.
The vast majority of collectors have come across figures with small problems – normally some type of warping: an oddly positioned foot, arms or legs too far apart or too close together, a small dent in the figure, or a pose that simply does not match identical sculpts. This warping could be called, “The M.U.S.C.L.E. Warp.”
M.U.S.C.L.E. figures were created using an injection molding process. This process reduces cost, increases efficiency, and produces an outstanding final product. However, it is impossible to have a 100% perfect production process. Errors and slight abnormalities will occasionally arise.
