Maybe this is old news, but I just stumbled upon it and couldn't believe it. I have found it listed through multiple sources though, so I guess it's real?

I'm really torn here. The promise of a MUSCLE movie is beyond exciting (in theory). If it leads to more readily available MUSCLE-style figures, that'll inject a whole ton of enthusiasm into this community, and it's good for all of us.
But on the other hand, I'm not super stoked at the idea of our quiet, niche, little subcommunity getting an influx of fair-weather nostalgia-fanboys. Just the sheer amount of faux-MUSCLE geekdom that's going to come out of this.... sigh... Not to mention, personally, Vin Diesel is easily one of my least favorite actors in Hollywood. Usually if he's in it, I avoid it.
Of course, it all really depends who's at the helm writing and directing, but still... This is shaky ground....

Any sort of publicity would be huge. I have a massive collection of Marvel comics whose appreciation stalled - even depreciated for awhile - until the movies came about (anything associated with Deadpool at the moment has gone nuttier than cryptocurrencies). Unfortunately I have never been able to part with anything I collect to take advantage of the situation - especially items I saved for 20 plus years. Studios seem to be tripping over themselves to attach themselves to any sort of 80s nostalgia. And there would be a big overseas market for a movie like that. It only needs to make a few people remember how much fun they had with those little rubber guys.
