I think they’re really cool, but there are probably too many in circulation to be future treasure (at least in terms of monetary value).

The issue I saw with them was the inconsistency of the texture on the sculpts. Some were super rubbery and others were firm.

Those nerd block lavender colorway were also sold from the factory in loose sets on ebay. So the rarity was lost after that.

Everyone basically hit the nail on the head, but as for liking the figures, I loved the idea, taking the muscle line and introducing other childhood favorites. Yeah the different artist messed up with the consistency of the line. I am still a bit upset that Super 7 isn't going to continue the line and do series 4. Id love to see some of the side characters and oddballs, or maybe even more muscle man vehicles.

M.U.S.C.L.E. To me is Kinnikuman. It's where the name originated. And I feel any expansion of the line without Kinnikuman, is not worth my time.

 

are they M.U.S.C.L.E.? I guess. But Vintage is better, and the real deal.

I agree with the texture.feel issues. If they were firm like vintage Muscle I wouldn't have had a problem with them, but they are springy and weird. I got rid of my set. The street shark ones are great though, true to scale and feel to the originals. The wwe feel good but are so out of whack scale wise I can't bring myself to call them muscle.

Good looking figures but I'm not a huge fan of them or calling them MUSCLE. I prefer the much older line.
