The SGS sold for a whopping $3,113 – which is the most a single M.U.S.C.L.E. figure has ever sold for. While only one person could be the winner of that auction, every M.U.S.C.L.E. collector should be pleased with the outcome.

With M.U.S.C.L.E. collecting the simple, and commonly held, idea is that auctions often come down to two bidders. But the M.U.S.C.L.E. Rule of Two (MRT) is really broader than simply two bidders. It represents behavior more than two standard deviations from the mean on any M.U.S.C.L.E. topic.
Last week I was taking pictures of my Non-Poster Kinnikuman figures. I enjoyed reexamining the figures and thinking about their place in M.U.S.C.L.E. history. Then I came across my Ramenman with Dragon. It put an end to my enjoyment. I wondered, “What makes this special? Why do I even care?”
