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.

Literature 200 Completed

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.

The M.U.S.C.L.E. “Warp”

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.”
