Naming Names

One entertaining aspect of M.U.S.C.L.E was that, removed as they were from the Kinnikuman comics from whence they came, they were rendered nameless (apart from ones which appeared to have their names written on them), and therefore could be given whatever name tickled your fancy. For example, figures which had the mohawk and other distinguishing features of Muscleman/Kinnikuman himself were called, for some reason, 'Bashdroids' down our way.

There was a rumour that you could get a huge poster of all the figures, with their names!!.
But it wasn't true. There was a poster, but with no names. Nonetheless, I would absolutely LOVE one of these, so if you have one to spare, PLEASE contact me and we'll cut a deal!
Anyhow, I will present on this page a selection of made up names for the figures. Some are too ridiculously self evident to bother with, but others were interesting. If you had any good names, please email me and I'll put them here.

Names from an Alex and his brother:

More name calling from someone else:

All these names are somewhat redundant without being able to see the M.U.S.C.L.E. in question...maybe you can try and guess which is which. Or maybe not.
