I remeber making a wrestling ring with plywood, nails and rubber bands for these guys. I had some time on my hands. Great website.

actually, lisa, M.U.S.C.L.E. toys did come back for a few years. there was a new cartoon series called "ultimate muscle: the kinnikuman legacy" on american t.v. a few years ago, and they released a slew of new minis, and a couple waves of super-articulated, poseable figures of the new characters.

I used to love these. The best one - by far - was the hand!

WOW!!! These were the ULTIMATE in "Cheap crap toys" - but they were soooooo great!! I had like...a zillion of them. i always stepped or kneeled on them by accidnent and it would hurt SOO much! i've been looking for these things for ever,and i could never remember their name. M.U.S.C.L.E. Men...hahaha sooo great. i built a wrestling ring as well for them out of wood and jump rope (and hammers and nails - oh the things we played with as kids!!)..

Believe it or not folks, I still have my MUSCLE Men collection. I have them all overstuffed into a Simpson's fanny pack that barely even zips any more since there are so many of them in there. I have some MUSCLE Men that are apparently considered rare according to ebay. And just in case you are wondering, no, I am not getting rid of them. They are one of the few toys that I still have from my childhood...and they're all MINE!!!

My brother had M.U.S.C.L.E. figures and I had C.U.T.I.E.S., the girl version. It seemed like there were so many of these little toys. I think we got ours at Big Lots.

M.U.S.C.L.E., ("Millions of Unusual Small Creatures Lurking Everywhere") My brother had a TON of these when we were kids! Also, there was the girls' "equivalent": The C.U.T.I.E.s (The "Cutest Ultra Tiny Individuals on Earth")! LOL

Still have the whole set too! I hunted down every last figure, and then got into the color ones too. I had the ring, and my dad used to do a cheesy announcer voice while I wrestled them. The first packaging was a small blue bubble card with about 5 figures per box. Then they started putting them in semi-opaque garbage cans of maybe 10-12 figures. Then there was the large series boxes that had, like, 1/3 of the whole series (you had to hunt down all 3 boxes). Not sure, because I was only in 4th grade, but I think there were different figures in the set boxes than in the cans and cards, so you wouldn't wind up with dozens of duplicates (yeah, imagine that nowadays, when the toy companies deliberately create 10 "error" versions of Darth Vader to drive up demand and prices)!

Remember the one that was just some monster looking hand? It didn't have legs or anything and just rested on what would be the wrist with the fingers pointing straight up. lolwtf? Good times.

They were sooo weird! My brother had them. It was around the time of WWF and Hulk.
Greg - August 06, 2009 - Report this comment
There was this one that was a round spinning top. Those things, along with Army Ants and Battle Beasts, were such fun mini toys.

Wow, these guys were the one toyline I never really got tired of...there were so many of them, and I remember the bandwagon effect on all the kids in my neighborhood! We would make up storylines for hours, and of course our stories would always have to end with a final "Royal Rumble" between all of the wrestlers! lol Good God, where did those times go?

I had a gazillion of these. My favorite was the one that looked like Paul "Mr. Wonderful" Orndorff. Had him kick the crap out of the others LOL

I remember my cusion and I had these I got the wrestling ring for Christmas. We would play for hours there was one that was blue and had like a bulleye for a face we called him Captin Blimy and he would ride our remote controled cars and crash in to the lincon log buildings until one winter day we were playing out side in the snow we barried him in an "avalanch" near the door step of our grandparents house. Went to dig him out and never found him again. To this day I still wonder what happend to him.

I still have at least fifty of these guys. Great toys. They outlasted everything else.

Haha my favourite one was the little wrestler with the Mask on and a Big Bullet hole in the side of his Head. Haha how much fun could you have with them! Dont make toys like this anymore, but then again i dont think Kids now have the imagination to truly appreciate and enjoy these brilliant Toys!!!

I actually,for some reason or other, bought some MUSCLE men off of ebay a couple years back. Think it was 20+ of them for 8 bucks or less. I have them in a box and have not messed with them since I bougth them but it makes me feel good knowing I have them...strange.I wondered what the hell I did with my old school toys over the years...think I just gave them away.

We found a plastic bag full of these in our parents' attic recently, along with the ring. They'll be put on display when I have my 80s party.

I have a box of all mine from when my brother and I played with them as kids. We are selling our He-Man collection but I don't want to get rid of these! They bring back so many memories.

I still have most of my MUSCLE Men. They're in an armadillo shell in my basement collecting dust. I burned and chewed up scores of them when 8-10, they had a certain taste...and when you'd open up the garbage can of new ones the smell was glorious!

I had a bunch of these when I was about 6 for my birthday. Came in a huge pack. I have no idea where i have put them now.

I LOVED these as a kid and have since accumulated a decent small collection. I have 3 of the 5 packs still on card, and an unopened garbage can 10 pack, plus about 90 flesh colored ones. The hand people are talking about (actually the Claw), is one of the rarer figures. The flesh one goes for $10-20, but the other colors are rarer. The purple one is ULTRA rare, and I have seen one sell for over $900. There's also been some extremely rare ones found, where there's 1-2 known in the world, that have gone for well over $1000-2000 or even more.

I found a huge bag of these and the C.U.T.I.E.S. at Goodwill a few years ago for $2.99. I wasn't dumb; I bought them. There are over 200 of them, all different. I was an adult in the 80s, but my nephews had them, and I would play with my nephews for hours with these little guys. Mine are in great condition, none broken or melted, and in different colors also. I'm going to hang on to them for awhile.
