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 People vs. M.U.S.C.L.E. – Part 2 follows the same framework for M.U.S.C.L.E. advertising that had been established the previous year in the two commercials. Sadly, for the final M.U.S.C.L.E. commercial there appears to be a far less focused approach. However, hardcore Color figure collectors likely view this commercial as the single greatest thirty seconds of video ever uncovered.
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 only documented example of M.U.S.C.L.E. in a mail order catalog is the 1986 Sears Wishbook. Sears, along with Mattel and most advertisers, seemed unsure of the figures proper place – although the placement suggests probably the best understanding of the brand. Read more in Literature 200.
