Hey guys, been awhile. I was bored in Eugene today, so I decided to hit up a new toy store in the larger town next to mine. Picked up every MUSCLE the guy had, and when I was going through them just now, I found this guy. He looked unfamiliar, so I decided to look him up on here. Apparently, he's the Black Emperor :D

I've attached some pics, but since I know how skeptical you all can be about this kind of thing, I already let Eric Nilla know that I might be sending him the figure for legitimacy confirmation ;)

It's definitely MUSCLE rubber, and not Kinkeshi rubber. Pretty exciting!

Man; and here I am just thinking how great would it be just to find any muscles anywhere but online....in the 2 years I have been collecting them so far, I have found a total of 2 muscles at yard sales, junk stores, etc......and they sure weren't class A's or super rares. Just a couple of C's, but I considered it a minor triumph to even find those. I think I am in a muscle dead zone or something. Depressing. Super happy for you though. Amazing discovery. I would be so charged up right now if I were you; probably wouldn't come down off of that high for several months!

 

Congrats for reals!

Thank you! Honestly, it's a really big deal for me. I spent years looking for MUSCLE and found nothing except online. And then for some reason in the last year or so, I've been finding them all over! Definitely feeling like I've accomplished a long-term goal here :)

I have seen MUSCLE once in the wild. MIMP never. It is a pity.

I have found one MIMP in the wild. It was a green harpy, which I of course snagged up! It is so weird how I just find one of something. I guess it happens. Still waiting for the day I can find a full toy box from the 80's/early 90's with lots of little goodies that made their way to the bottom of the toy box. The bottom is always the best part!

Wow, good for you! I found a handful of MUSCLE at a comic chop in Boston yesterday and the best one they had was a Buffaloman missing an arm priced at $2.

 

Congrats on an exciting find.

 

 

Thank you

Thanks everyone :)

@Dixiebull: I couldn't agree more! When I hit up places that have bins of toys, I spent a lot of time at the bottom, just in case there are hidden mini figures in there :)

@bigburty: with the three purple Class A's I found, I auctioned them off because so many people wanted them, and I was kind of indifferent, as they were just purple muscle sculpts to me. With this guy though? I've ALWAYS wanted to find something like this out in the wild, and having done so, have absolutely zero interest in ever letting it go :D

Nice score dude! I don't think I can control myself if I ever find a muscle so rare out in the wild like that. Shoot I haven't find any commons either.
