I have just moved into my own house and am taking all of my stuff from my parents house. I grabbed my muscle men and army ants. As I was looking through them I remembered I had all of them except one group of the blue ones.

I had one set, then dad and I went to the store for another color and I acted up so he returned them :( I always remember pulling off their butt and chewing them up. I know it sounds wierd, which it is.

These things and my M.U.S.C.L.E men were my pride and joy as a kid. I remember the commercial for these, had an awesome jingle too. Can't find it though!

I love, love, love Army Ants. I still have all of mine from when I was a kid. I found them again a few months ago and noticed what great detail they'd been sculpted with. So I decided to paint some of my favorite ants to bring those details out, I've done about 8 or 9 since then.

I wasn't a butt chewer, but you could switch out the butts so your favorite one could have your fav color. =D I remember my brother always had the blue ants, I had the orange ones. And damn, we had so much....
