The nice part (if that’s the correct thing to say) about taking a break from the website is that I’m overwhelmed with a backlog of emails to organize, respond to, and use. Many collectors have sent in various error figures to add to the archives. There’s one more “bigger” update after this “smaller” update.
An auction’s price tag may have prevented these Nestle Quik M.U.S.C.L.E. figures from entering into any actual collections, but that doesn’t stop them from entering Advertising & Promotion 300’s Virtual Collection.
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.
Lucas Rage, known as fuzzbuster on LRG.com, recently posted some pictures of figures from his childhood that are excellent examples of both Manufacturing Error Figures and “Warped” M.U.S.C.L.E. figures.
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.”
