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 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 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.”
