As some can recall, a number of months earlier this year I agreed to take on the task of breaking down the information I could gather from the packing of figures in 4 Packs! However I greatly underestimated the size of that little project! Nicely Jkaris provided me with pics of his many 4 Packs to try and figure something out! Unfortunately as helpful as that was, I still could not gather enough information to really get anywhere! I didn't really know what else to do, So I've decided to gather a huge assortment of 4 pack information from YOU My fellow board members! It might be pretty crazy! It might be pretty silly! It might have something to do about that nasty feeling in my gut I get when I read one of Doc's post, but alas it must be done! So here is the plan. Whether you are a muscle collector or not, whether you have 1 4 pack to your name or 100, I need you to do one of a few things! Either kindly send me the packaging contents of your 4 packs, or some good enough quality pictures that I can determine their contents myself. However just a gobbled up group of numbers of each figure in your 4 packs is not enough! I will need info from each 4 pack combination! Including of course FLESH, HALF&HALF, and COLORED! So if you decide to send me just the contents of a 4 pack, I need to either know that the pack is a flesh pack, or what color each figure is. So if you just send pics, it's easier on you, and if you send numbers it's easier on me.
The choice is your's and all help and assistance is highly appreciated! Also I don't check eBay for muscles as often as I used to, so when anybody finds an auction of 4 packs kindly post the link here! Infact ALL information, pictures included can be directly posted in this thread, however you can send them directly to me as well, or just reference me to any website where you may have your pictures stored. I don't know how long this project will take, or how long it will be before I get any results, but still it will give me something to do on my down time.
What I hope to discover from this information.
1. The figure placement for each pack type.
2. The exclusivity of figures between 4 and 28 packs
3. The change in color of each 'TREE' of figures between Half/Half packs, and full color packs.
4. To determine what trees were made in color or flesh in Half/Half packs, and if it is consistent throughout.
5. If that nasty bump will ever go away.
6. If there were any noticeable changes in the exclusivity of figures between 4 and 28 packs depending on each package combination.
7. How often colors change throughout the life span of colored 4 packs.
8. Who knows what else I may find! any suggestions or ideas are extremely welcomed!
My current goal is to amass information from at least 200 of each 4 pack combination! So I will currently need 600 4 packs of information to see if I have gotten anywhere. That's a total of 2400 figures! This number could fluctuate depending on the variety of information I receive. When I achieve enough information, I will compile, and overlap this info to see what I get!
Flesh packs = Need to know each figure included.
Half/Half Packs = Need to know each Flesh Figure, as well as each colored figure and the colors of each.
Colored Packs = Each figure and their color.
Thanks beforehand to each person who can contribute.
Please don't get mad at me if I get exhausted from time to time with this project, I'm in no hurry, and quite frankly muscles aren't going anywhere anytime soon. If at some point I feel I can no longer carry on this project, I will find someone capable to take over all the information.
Current Contributors! Thanks guys!
