Street Fighter II M.U.S.C.L.E. figures Super 7 released earlier this year and you'll wonder what happened. How did the same company release some of the greatest minis ever and some of the worst in such a short span of time? Who knows? Since I bought them and opened them, I feel compelled to at least review these as a cautionary tale for anyone who might be contemplating them!
Height: 1 3/4 inches
Includes: 3 figures
Non-Scalper Price: $6 dollars
* While Pack A included the default vanilla Mega Man, Pack B includes the "firing" Mega Man with his Mega Buster cannon on his right arm. The pose is great but, again, the sculpt is barely visible. This is not a matter of bad pictures: These really look under detailed in person! I would have loved to have had a good Mega Man mini to fit in with my M.U.S.C.L.E. figures, but he's a let down.
* Metalls (also known as Mets, Mettools, or Hart Hats) are little minion guys, not unlike Goombas. I love minifigures that come in unusual shapes and sizes (think the various Sunshine incarnations from the vintage M.U.S.C.L.E. line) but this little guy looks so plain that you could almost pass him off as a random droplet of plastic slime.
* You know who Fire Man looks like? Firestorm. That's who. He's one of the better figures in this series simply because his silhouette is recognizable and a bit unique. Still, the lack of detail just kills the coolness of this figure.
I've also looked at Mega Man

Minifigure Review: Pack B from M.U.S.C.L.E.: Mega Man by Super7

You should paint them.ReplyDelete
I'm not much of a painter, but I did consider trying to give them a wash to bring out some of the detail and possibly cut down on the shininess of them. My fear is that because the manufacturing process didn't seem to leave the sculpts very well defined, the end result would still look rather flat.Delete
