Minifigure Review: Parthenon #212 from M.U.S.C.L.E. by Mattel
Height: 1 3/4 inches
M.U.S.C.L.E. #: 212
Originally sold in: Mighty Maulers 28 pack
Year of Release: 1986. Probably.
* This guy has an amazing sculpt! I love the look of the columns across his torso and on his arms and legs. Well, actually his arms and legs are made of columns. His head is really cool, too. It kind of looks like Ram-Man to me. The decorations on the top of the Parthenon chest piece are incredible as well. This guy is just darn fantastic!
* Parthenon has a pretty neutral stance which, again, I always prefer for these guys. The M.U.S.C.L.E. guys that had more posed stances were always tougher to keep standing when I was a kid. This guy just looks like a real bruiser, kind of like the aforementioned Ram-Man or the Hulk.
I'm just starting to review some M.U.S.C.L.E. figures on here so let me know what you think! Want to see more? Got a bunch of spare M.U.S.C.L.E. figures you want to send your old pal Barbecue17? Let me know in the comments below!
