be very careful about asking to have this done. Some companies will do it no questions asked, some have some kind of moral/legal code that won't let them do 'copyrighted' items.

technically, it's not illegal, since it's for personal use, and you'll only be making ONE. But a lot of print shops don't like to take the risk.

Major Scam Alert!!!
I just got a poster from Ebay and they guys name is retro_ross. He said it was an original poster and said he elaminated it a while back ago to protect it since it was from when he was a kid. He did tell the truth on one thing. It was elaminated but very poorly and it was just a piece of printer paper that he got from the interntet of the poster. A standard 8 x 10 sheet of effin paper....He is now going to get my foot shoved up his.........
Ebay filed a case and my money is coming back soon and he is getting suspended. He scamed two others I talked to in his sold history....Effer!!!

Well, when the guy flat out lies and says it is the original poster and not a replica or copy what do you do? I took a chance and it failed.
I did though think it would be a fake poster but I did not care, A elaminated copy would cost a bit of cash anyways but to my surprise it was just a effin piece of paper.....Thats ok, you don't mess with Okie!!!! "I got two guns, one for each of ya!!!" ( Tombstone ) I am getting my money back so no sweat!!!

I'm going to side with Smokin Gun on this one. Were you going to put it on the other side of the deer head?

I figured someone would fall for this scam, but I never figured it would be an actual MUSCLE collector. I think it feels a little safer to laugh (which I can't help – I'm sorry) because I know you're getting your money back.

You should try and maybe use the images from this thread and go and price one for yourself mate.
i know it would cost at least double of what you almost lost but you would have an excellent bran new poster , with no stress and no dealings with rip off artists. ;)

Here is a poster useless fact!
If you add a column to each side of the poster which the cutoff stars suggest the imaginative to do, and fill in the the space at the top, you get 300. 27 figures fill the top space in. And the columns are 20.

The poster in its original form is 13 figures per row and 20 figures per column minus the 27 missing spaces.
The revised poster is 15 figures per row and 20 figures per column. Adding a total of 67 new figures.
Attached File  fullMUSCLEposter of 300.jpg   463.98K   31 downloads




Sorry Jlspeth, this super rare 1 of a kind poster is not for sale!





*The 418 of the anniversary set minus 300 is equal to 118.
*The 418 minus original poster set 233 is equal to 185.
*The muscle ring poster never discovered has 400 spaces.
*The M.U.S.C.L.E. NES game had a undisclosed amount of different fixated Animations!

Please pay no heed to the *, they are for my own calculations! TNX Veers & UoM.

Based on my best guess, it has 400 figure spaces.

My Parents' house is a treasure chest of toys from my past. I just happened to come across a small version of the MUSCLE Thing poster that someone did and that I won in an ebay bid years ago because I had lost my larger original poster.

Then this weekend, I also found the original!!! In the "Mr.Brady's plans" cardboard tube!!! Then I take it home and realized that I had my beat up poster and my little sister's near-mint poster in there as well.

I was weeping tears of joy. Not really, but I was smiling like the Joker. My daughter loved pointing out her faves. She may have been almost as happy as her daddy.

Just felt like sharing. Sometimes my searches don't yield any treasure.

How's this? Notice in the bottom of the first photo, I have the cardboard tube it originally came in. I went tonight to Michael's Arts & Crafts and just by sheer luck, found the exact right size frame. The frame was only 20 bucks. I forgot to measure my poster, so I was all set for disappointment and made sure I held onto my receipt. Now, there is no need! Whee!

Thank you. I was not expecting to even find it at my parents'. Just lucked out for a change. Although, I can't complain at all. I have found the Musclemania toys by Select, those Deiner "Myth Monsters" and the Can O' Monsters. Many more things got tossed, so the ones I do find are even that much more special.

Take care!

It is is very good (not great) shape. It must have been in my parents' basement for almost 20 years. Paper and cardboard don't do all that well in damp, dark places. On closer inspection, it has some creases and bends and folds that have whitened, but no mold! I am a lucky guy.

Anybody know where I can get a "full body" scan of this? Would Kinko's do this? There is one not all that far from my job. Also, does anybody know the exact measurements off-hand of the poster? Since I guessed correctly the size of the frame, I never measured it.

Thanks!
