I recently bought a box of toys from Brian at Cool and Collected, and one batch of items were these 'Ultimate MUSCLE' figurines from 2002.
I don't recall the MUSCLE resurgence of the early 2000s, but it was most likely short lived here in the US. Maybe it was ill timed, nostalgia-wise, because these little figures do what the original MUSCLE figures delivered while adding to the fun with a few additional adjustments.
Let's take a look, shall we?
I knew nothing of Ultimate MUSCLE until I obtained this pile, now I want to track down more, especially of the wrestling pairs!
