:D Have a nice day !

EDIT by Veers - Czarcher deleted all of his posts because he was embarrassed. He wanted to collect a million mint MUSCLE's (no marks, pen marks, etc.).

EDIT by Orgg - Thanks to a LOT of Googling, I found an archive of this discussion as it appeared on Nov 23, 2008 02:40:31 GMT and am taking the liberty to restore the posts as they were upon that date.

I've been thinking about this for some time now. It's a crazy idea,but is it possible to amass a collection of 1 million muscle figures? Well I intend to try (told ya it was a crazy idea).
Even for a collector with a steady/sizeable paycheck,I think this would be quite a challenge. So for me it would be doubley hard. It definetly would'nt happen overnight,and it would probably take me the rest of my life to even come close,but none the less,I'm gonna go for it. Certain collectors (Arforbes),and the like may have their Rares,and Super-Rares,but I intend to have the biggest collection of Muscle figures EVER!
Starting in November I will be looking for muscle figures any color,and any sculpt in nice shape (no writing/ink marks,no bite marks,other damage). I can't go more than 40-50 cents per figure.
PM me if you can help.
Here's my stuff to trade for MUSCLES-

You're gonna need a ton of storage space!
That's over 4300 large freezer bags worth, or over 4300 complete sets!

I think storing them is the easy/fun part !
I also think anyone who has a million muscles could call themselves a millionaire!

I am anxious to see the end result although it will be many years from now. You should do collection update photos like once a year.

:yes: That would be an amazing accomplishment. I bet you could get on some news spot or tv show if you managed to do that. Some would riducule you, some would mock you, and some would worship you (mainly us hahahaha). Never thought of trying and Alex's reason is plenty enough reason for me not to hahahaha. $500,000 crikey. Good luck my friend, and if I can help you I will. :lol:

At an average salary of 20,000 thousand a year you can pull it off in 25 years! I gave up after I got to 1,500. :lol: Then I started trading my extras.

Ya URS,and considering I don't make quite that much,and I gotta put some money toward the family ( dang family ) It's gonna take awhile. I just have to find those lots on ebay at killer deals. I know one just ended that I was watching.It was over 140 figs plus a ring,and it closed at $40 bucks shipped!

One million MUSCLEs? One million MUSCLEs!? I can see the headline now: "One million MUSCLEs." (Okay, the headline will be a little more creative than that...)

But Arforbes is correct. You're looking at an investment of at least $500,000 Washingtons. That's a lot of mulla, a lot of dough, a lot of bread, if you're hearing what I'm saying. What you need, my friend, is a regular old Duplicator. A Duplicator is a simple little device that duplicates whatever the hell you put into it.

In other words, it'll make an exact copy of whatever you put inside of it. For instance, if you put a donut in, you get two donuts out. If you put two donkeys in, you get four donkeys out. If you put in a pant, you get a pair of pants out! Brilliant!

It works on paper too! You see where I'm going with this? It works especially well on green, rectangular pieces of paper with pictures of presidents on them, haha. You with me? That's right, my friend, you can put MUSCLE figures in the duplicator and get an exact copy! :yes: That way you don't have to spend $500,000 to get one million MUSCLEs! In fact, there's a Duplicator on eBay right this moment! There's a day left and high bid is at $650,000 right now! Go for it!

Your best bet is to move to a third world country and somehow become a politician and slowly make your way up the ladder until your the El Presidente' and then you start a Coup De' Ta, and form a Dictatorship. Then all you have to do is tell your servants to "Bring you some Muscles!" They will be like "Some that you own, or new ones you Highness?!" Then you have them beaten for their insolence while yelling "NEW ONES YOU SON OF A PIG!!!"

That would be Fun. :lol:

you can do it for less than half a million, there are times when you can pick up lots real cheap on ebay and if you can find some at thrift stores and garage sales, although that will happen less often, you can get them even cheaper. Why no marked feet, etc? I think you should go for any and all MUSCLE damaged, dirty or not in order to get a million.

If you could buy 100 MUSCLEs a day, every day for the next 27 1/2 years, you'll make it to a million. I wonder how easy it will be to find 100 muscles for sale every day in the year 2035.

whoa Czarcher, you have all my admiration for this quest you're planning to do
but... a 1.000.000?? Isn't a bit much?

It will take so many years! Are you sure that your MUSCLE fever will endure so long?!? (ehy I hope so man, I'm not trying to let you down :lol: )
Perhaps start at 100.000? It's always a BIG number but a little more affordable don't you think?
