So why do these 2-inch tall monochromatic PVC gum wrestling figures produced in the United States have the power to spark an 80s toy revival boom? They are so addicting. Instant childhood memories of a time when you didn't have a care in the world flood back when playing with M.U.S.C.L.E. Men.
The M.U.S.C.L.E. figures were based on the Japanese toyline called Kinkeshi. Kinkeshi were based on a manga and anime called Kinnikuman, and some figures were based on anime-only characters. The main hero was Kinnikuman, who, in the US, was 'Muscle Man' and was the leader of the 'Thug Busters.' He was described as the greatest wrestling champion and is the main inspiration for M.U.S.C.L.E. Men
