As many M.U.S.C.L.E. collectors know, we were given very little in the way of a backstory when they first hit the shelves in the 1980s. An incomplete checklist, a six-panel comic strip, two 30-second television commercials, vague and confusing graphics in print and on packaging... Without any prior knowledge of Kinnikuman, this was all you had to go on.

 

Though the mysterious nature of the north American version of the toy line is arguably one of the most endearing of it's qualities, the approach taken by distributors in the European market is no less fascinating.

 

Though only 40 Kinkeshi-based sculpts were used for the first series of Exogini, they were each given names reflective of their import to Italy (and the same was done for their subsequent arrival in France as Cosmix.) They were not portrayed as two opposing teams of wrestlers, but as a mysterious alien race of miniature mutants that worked together as one to invade every corner of the universe, for unknown reasons.

Not only was this expressed through advertisements and short blurbs on packaging, but a (somewhat) fuller account of the Exogini arrival and conquest of Earth was illustrated in a series of sticker cards and a collector's album released by EUROFLASH in 1988.

 

From what I understand, the cards were sold in individual packets.

According to the back cover of the sticker album, it appears that you could buy bulk orders of cards, as well as specific numbered cards directly from the manufacturer.

This particular EUROFLASH set contained 180 cards, each labeled with the series title and a number on the reverse:

The collector's album contained numbered spaces for each card. A caption was printed below each space, which reads as a story when followed consecutively. The sticker cards add graphics to the story, though in some cases their actual correspondence is questionable.

 

A full version of the album with all the cards in place was scanned and compiled by Albertinoz, and can be found here.

 

Below are scans of the blank book, as well as all of the cards in the proper order with the corresponding captions crudely translated to English. The scans, like the translation, are not perfect, but serve well enough for reference at this point.

I got this complete set of cards, album, and sealed card example from Tofudrifter81, who got it from el midgetron before that, and I must thank them both for keeping these items in such pristine condition. The reason that the scans are a bit blurry/cut-off around the edges is because I did not want to put any additional stress on the album aside from draping and pressing it lightly onto the scanner. Further stress seemed especially unnecessary in light of the excellent scans Albertinoz has already posted online.

 

As stated in the first post, the translation is crude. I welcome anyone with a better understanding of either or both Exogini and the Italian language to offer any insights into anything I may have misinterpreted.

 

From my personal observations, I believe cards 127 and 135 should be swapped, though the numbers on the card backs and the corresponding spaces in the album indicate otherwise. I also noticed what I believe to be more than one Star Wars reference embedded in the story.

These are amazing... I have always wondered (maybe "always" is exaggerated, because I've only know about Exogini for about a year) if the blue/silver alien face on the packaging is supposed to be their interpretation of Muscleman??

I have often wondered about the same exact thing. It does seem to be a stylized version of the classic Kinniku head.
It is worth noting that of the limited sculpts used in series 1 Exogini, two of them are indeed Kinnikuman. Both are featured in the sticker card set as their respective characters, with the Exogini Head also represented prominently at other times.

The disembodied head clearly represents the concept of Exogini as a whole, but no other explanation is given beyond that. Keeping in mind that one of the key words used to describe the line is "mysterious," it is not surprising that some details were intentionally left up to the collector's imagination. In fact, that very speculative aspect hearkens back to some of the charm of M.U.S.C.L.E., even though the element of mystery seems less than intentional with that particular line.

In the spirit of the fun of speculation, I would guess that the Exogini head represents an iconic person or ideological concept among the culture of the aliens; Perhaps an ancient ruler of the tiny planet, or maybe an influential philosopher.
I would imagine that members of Exogine society would identify this image as representative of their culture as a whole, regardless of it's origin.

I like it.

 

Going back over the pics and captions, it surprised me how dark it comes across too.  Much more of a sense of impending doom in this mysterious invasion.  

 

The US version, when I was a kid, I felt a clear good guy vs bad guy element (even though that wasn't laid out very clearly).  Between the paintings and the captions, these are much more moody...
