Certain information on this website must be credited to various M.U.S.C.L.E. enthusiasts. Without their dedicated research into the background and production of the M.U.S.C.L.E. toyline then collectors wouldn’t really have any type of structure to the hobby. The classification guides and research into the production runs and indeed the figures and accessories themselves help the hobby tremendously. A full list of the M.U.S.C.L.E. contributors and authors of M.U.S.C.L.E. websites around the world can be found below. Much appreciation for all your hard work and keeping this niche hobby alive!
CHAD PERRY – The University of M.U.S.C.L.E.
This fantastic and highly in-depth site is constructed in an academic style and it features weekly, sometimes daily updates and the information the author has gathered on M.U.S.C.L.E. over the years is truly remarkable. For example, Chad spent years trying to track down the original Mattel employees at the time of M.U.S.C.L.E. production to find out as much as he could about the toyline and a possible reason why Satan Cross does not appear on the poster – his investigations can be read in full here >>
JOHN KARIS – Little Rubber Guys
John Karis has built the best and longest running forum on the web where M.U.S.C.L.E. collectors can get together to discuss, buy/trade M.U.S.C.L.E. and many more toylines. Any avid collector must drop by at some point to see what’s currently going on, even if you don’t join the discussions there is plenty of interesting information to discover as the posts go back years! John is the guy who discovered ‘The Magnificent Eleven’ Super Rare figures which have caused quite a stir since their appearance.
NATHAN NEWELL : Natahan’s M.U.S.C.L.E. Blog
Launched all the way back in April 1998, this site was originally called Nathan’s M.U.S.C.L.E. Page and has long been the website that the vast majority of collectors first come across when re-discovering M.U.S.C.L.E. and indeed new fans of the toyline. The site is legendary in regards to M.U.S.C.L.E. websites, with lots of interesting information into the background and origins of M.U.S.C.L.E. and much, much more!
SOUPIE – Soupie’s M.U.S.C.L.E. Color Image Archive
Over the years Soupie has documented every colour each M.U.S.C.L.E. figure was produced in, (true dedication and man hours!) leaving no doubt that certain figures were not made in some colours. It also breaks all the figures down into their original Kinnikuman Parts and hypothesized molding trees. The archive was instrumental in constructing the M.U.S.C.L.E. Figure Classifications drawn up by Chad Perry and used on this site.
