WWE Elite Isaac Yankem, DDS Revealed as SDCC 2017 Exclusive
Thursday, July 6, 2017
It was revealed earlier today that Toys R Us is going to be having a rather unique action figure that will be exclusive to them at Comic Con this year. Mattel has created a special Isaac Yankem, DDS Elite action figure for the big event this summer. Yankem will definitely be a rare action figure, no toy company has ever produced one in history The new action figure will be available at Comic Con at Entertainment Earth Booth #2343, and it will be released for purchase on ToysRUs.com on July 20th. The new figure is exclusive to the San Diego Comic Con, an event where, in addition to some major pop culture events, multiple new WWE action figures are revealed every year.
Isaac Yankem may seem like a strange choice to make for an action figure as the Yankem gimmick lasted just a little over a year in the former WWF. The character was that of an "evil dentist" who was hired by Jerry "The King" Lawler to get rid of his nemesis Bret Hart. The gimmick was not a success by any means, but it has lived on in infamy for several years now, especially since Yankem went on to find greater success as Kane. The dentist may be long gone now, but Glenn Jacobs is now certainly a future WWE Hall of Famer, and he is running for mayor of Knox County, Tennessee very soon as well. For fans of Yankem (and who isn't?), the gimmick can forever be part of your collection.
Comic Con seems to be the place for Mattel to express their creativity through some of wrestling's most goofiest characters, as seen with last year's exclusive Shockmaster figure. The action figure itself has an accurate growling headsculpt, a removable dentist's shirt, and the necessary headgear needed to clean the teeth of all your other action figures. The packaging is also specially made with Yankem's influence all over it. Be on the lookout for the first ever Isaac Yankem action figure if you are heading out to the big convention this month. Comic Con will be going on from the 20th through the 23rd of this month, with preview night being on July 19th. Yankem is available for purchase on each of those dates.
