    I was down with the multi-colored versions released in the '90s. My father's arcade had them as ticket-prizes, used to grab handfuls of 'em everytime I was there.

    I use to have a massive bag of them. If I remember correctly teen my brother and I we had the full set. I even had the wrestling ring. But they are lost to time now.

    I have some of the newer Kid Muscle ones that came out a couple years ago though.

    Between my brothers and myself we probably had a thousand of those things, we had the wrestling ring too.

    Yeah! I still got a bunch put up somewhere. I had about 4-5 of the variations of Muscleman himself. lol

    I also have some of the newer Ultimate Muscle ones that I bought used for 10 cents apiece. I believe they were from one of those boxed sets, because there was a gold one in there.

    Dude I was gonna start a thread like this the other day! I loved those little things! Glad to see I'm not the only one who still remembers them! I remeber one year for X-mas I got a big box of them... I think it was like complete series 1 or something like that.
