M.U.S.C.L.E. (Millions of Unusual Small Creatures Lurking Everywhere!)

Very odd, but brilliant, toy. Based on the Japanese Kinkeshi and Kinnikuman animie. I would often get the regular pack and make up my own scenarios since I had no clue about their origins.

Everyone had their favourites and doubles were supposed to be traded (though rarely were). A cool toy, since no two were the same and the character designs went from sleek, to comedic, surreal/ scary and hilariously random.

OMG!!!!!! Yes!!!!

Thank you so much for posting this Kash! WOW!!! I am female but I was obsessed with these for some reason as a child...we won't explore that but I think I had all of the ones in this picture!!!!! I used to play with them all the time & trade em with my friends at school!!

Hmmm, I wonder if I still have these packed away somewhere...they're probably hanging out with my California Raisins & Smurf figures.

[Smile] Kudos to you, Cindy. Loved the fact that they were so random thus you kinda had to use your imagination and make up some scenario for them.

I mean, this guy was sort of the leader...

I collected these things up until 1990. That's when Matchbox came out with MONSTERS IN MY POCKET...

 -

As one can plainly see, Monsters in my Pocket were very similar to M.U.S.C.L.E in nature. But being that I was a big fan of iconic horror, sci-fi & mythilogical creatures and stories...these were way cooler and alot more fun to collect to me. And not only did these things come in an assortment of cool colors; but I remember for a time alot of them came with some cool trading cards that were also very fun to collect.
