Originally releasing in extremely limited numbers at DCon ’15 back in November of last year, the highly sought after M.U.S.C.L.E C.A.R.S from Alien Robot Monster will finally see a general release next week! Whilst information on the figure’s origin remains close guarded at present, it appears the mini has been kit-bashed from a classic “Meat” M.U.S.C.L.E and a toy car, coming cast in 2 separate parts using an authentic flesh-tone soft resin. Going on sale in the Alien Robot Monster store next Wednesday, March 23rd for an undisclosed sum, we suggest keeping a close eye on the ARM Instagram feed for more details soon…

Chris also tells us that the figure will be going on sale at 9am Pacific time on Wednesday, coming in at just $30 plus shipping… Here’s hoping we see more M.U.S.C.L.E C.A.R.S soon!
