Heya, party people.
Ugh, god, that was terrible sounding.
So, apparently, at Mattel's WWE Toyfair showing, they had proto-dummies of potential M.U.S.C.L.E.-styled WWE figures. Other blogs have already posted vids and pics, so, I am not going to bother with that shit. No, I am going to give you all the shortcuts to these resources...
Let Enrique Ruvalcaba know what you think on Facebook. Enrique Ruvalcaba is the Director of Marketing at Mattel, and he asked for any feedback we have on these figures. If we bark loud enough, for long enough, they'll get made.
Chad, over at University of M.U.S.C.L.E., has also started a campaign to get interest and awareness up on this opportunity. Click the UoM link, to see a video interview with Enrique Ruvalcaba from Toyfair. In the interview, Ruvalcaba informs us that the line hasn't been approved, but there are people within Mattel that were around when M.U.S.C.L.E. was released... And they want the whole little rubber guys movement to make a comeback. All they need is our support and Mattel will finally give us what we've been asking for, for the last 25 years.
Also, hit up Mattel on Twitter, and let them know that you want these made. Also, give them feedback so they can put out the best product possible. Chad from UoM and Soupie from Minifigures XD have already produced some nice insight... Let's keep the dialogue flowing.
Alright kids... I'm about to go stomp Sara Faust at One Piece (for Gamecube), like a NARC at a bike rally.
It's been fun though, right?
