M.U.S.C.L.E.: #149 Screw Kid

I'm kinda surprised I don't have more M.U.S.C.L.E. figures in my toy collection.  After all they are highly collectible, I'm a fan of wrestling and I fondly remember buying these figures when I was a kid.

Wait a minute.  You don't know what M.U.S.C.L.E. is?  Of course it's an acronym for Millions of Unusual Small Creatures Lurking Everywhere.  Like my first love, Transformers, M.U.S.C.L.E. is the American version of a popular Japanese creation - Kinnikuman.  I'm not the most well versed in the history of these toys so I'll just let you read the history courtesy of Wikipedia for yourself.

Several weeks ago when I scored that awesome Rock Lords plan-o-gram sheet I shared, the seller had a slew of M.U.S.C.L.E. figures - most starting at $1 each.  I thought and pondered adding a few, then I took the plunge and selected 15 or so.  However the shipping calculator was a little screwy so I kept removing figure by figure from my cart until I got to a shipped total for everything I was comfortable with.

This is one of the figures that I grabbed because I can remember having him when I was a kid.  I always thought the drill hands and the screw head were cool, but I forgot all about the little drill knee caps!  Fun stuff.

  1. Nice! I'm pretty sure this is one of the 3 or 4 guys I still have boxed away somewhere with some other childhood stuff.
