They are going for stupid money right now.

I think someone is banking on them being old prototypes or something because both are Mattel properties?

 

They are definitely super 7. The packages in the last 2 pics have the same 'ages 6 and up' that are on super 7 items but not original muscle. Also, the top has the 'J' punched out to hang on racks like super 7 as opposed to the old MUSCLE triangle.

 

Its the same 2 people in a bidding war driving up the price to $222 right now. Its gonna suck for that person when super 7 releases these at some point.....

Well more and more are turning up. The seller seems to do business with Hot Wheels. How would they get their hands on multiple sets of figures that aren't even out yet?

Maybe Mattel took back the MUSCLE name and is releasing them on their own?

 

Could be why Super 7 uses 'Keshi Surprise' now?

Happens all the time with toys leaving the factories they’re produced, one way or another, especially toys produced in China. Not familiar with these auctions to know if that’s the source but being Mattel, I assume so.

I was thinking the same thing. Could be why there is no "s7" imprint on the figure, and the fact that the seller has a lot of hot wheels stuff would lead me to suspect it's a Mattel factory and not necessarily the same one Super 7 has been using.

I was also told that some had been purchased at Toys R us right before they closed. Seems like they have been dumped at discount stores after Toys R us went down.

From brianflynn of Super7.

"I don't know exactly, but I have theory based on conversations had with employees when we made the WWE muscle. We talked about making food fighters into muscle, and they had some scaled down figures that felt like muscle figures. My guess is that much like us reviving muscle, they tried to take a mattel property and remake it in muscle as a test to see how people would react. Shortly thereafter, a management change happened, and the WWE project was essentially scrapped even though the figures were made, probably like the street sharks. Then they had inventory with no plan on how to sell it, since it was an old management project. So, you are seeing people slowly buy off the inventory from Mattel as big chains in test buys, which is what is happening now. Just a theory though."

So pretty much left overs from the changing of the guard at Mattel.

FYI... I'm still finding these at Five Below° as of today (along with the WWF figures).
