WWE Mattel Basic Series 75 is NOW AVAILABLE to Order!
Saturday, July 15, 2017
The next set of basic action figures has been revealed just slightly ahead of Comic Con next week. Series 75 of WWE action figures is now available to order from RingsideCollectibles.com. The new set of figures includes no action figures of anybody new, but they include some much-needed and updated versions of some WWE Superstars. These action figures are part of Mattel's basic lineup, and as such, they do not include as much detail, articulation, or accessories, as those are typically all save for their Elite series figures. Despite this, they still always manage to do an impressive job with their action figures regardless of the series.
Let's take a look at Basic Series #75! First up is the "G.O.A.T." Chris Jericho. This is the first Mattel figure to be officially released that is based off of Jericho's latest run with the company. Due to issues involving rights for the band logos that Jericho has tattooed on his arms, Mattel has stated before that they cannot use any of Jericho's tattoos. Instead, we still have accurate grey ring gear and a new headsculpt with Jericho's goatee. No List of Jericho this time around, but don't be a stupid idiot, that's what the Elites are for.
Finn Balor returns to the basic lineup here. Nothing much to add to this action figure. Balor arrives in black trunks, boots, and kneepads this time around, but he does also have a brand new serious headsculpt. For anyone in need of a non-Demon "Balor Club" version of Finn, now's your chance to finally pick one up.
Randy Orton slithers his way into another lineup with a new action figure that includes all of his sleeve tattoos and a bearded headsculpt. His ring trunks are black with light black lettering. Hopefully we'll hear about a new Jinder Mahal figure at Comic Con next week, and also the Punjabi Prison match playset made by Jakks Pacific ten years ago is allegedly selling for a ton of money right now. Get on it Mattel!
The current Universal Champion is here to conquer the basic lineup once more. Brock Lesnar returns with his usual black ring shorts and a new headsculpt as well. This one also includes his MMA gloves and a molded "Suplex City" t-shirt on the figure's torso.
Lana may be an official Smackdown superstar now, but you may remember last year when she got married to Rusev and they constantly had their celebrations interrupted by Roman Reigns. Ah, good times. Anyway, Lana is based off of those angles in this series. She comes in her wedding dress, pink heels, and with a brand new headsculpt as well.
BRRRRRRRRRAAAAAAAAAAUUUUUUUUNNNNN! He was nearly killed last time we saw him on TV, but "The Monster Among Men" Braun Strowman is alive and well here. This is Strowman's first Mattel figure from his post-Wyatt Family run, and the figure is about as well done as it can get. The incredible size, tattoos, ring attire, hair, and long beard are all here. Strowman seems to be perfectly calm with this figure, but hopefully we'll get one with a roaring headsculpt very soon.
That is basic series #75 everyone. Be sure to check back here next week during Comic Con for more exciting action figure news and reveals from WWE and Mattel!
