Monday, July 17, 2017
It looks like we now know a few different upcoming WWE toy lineups just a few days ahead of their big reveal that will be happening at San Diego Comic Con this Thursday. New photos have surfaced through multiple outlets of Mattel's Battle Packs Series #48, and this series features a little something for everybody. The series includes updated versions of Chad Gable and Jason Jordan, as well as a new pack featuring the Hype Bros (which marks the first action figure ever for Mojo Rawley), and a special "Flashback" pack is being released with Shawn Michaels and Diesel. The series is not available to order just yet, but it should hopefully be going up online for pre-order soon.
However, a few new images of some of the basic action figures that Mattel will be cranking out have been released. Photos of basic editions of Enzo Amore, Big Cass, Brock Lesnar, and Sting, circa his 'Surfer' run, have been released. The new figures will be exclusive to Toys R Us as part of their WWE Network Spotlight lineup. They will likely be released later this summer. Also, new images of Basic Series #76 have been released. This lineup features the popular AJ Styles, John Cena, and The Rock figures, as well as new editions of Sami Zayn, Dolph Ziggler, and the "Macho King" Randy Savage. These are due to be released in mid-august.
In another bit of news, we also have uncovered, through Walmart.com, some leaked images of the next Then, Now, and Forever Elite lineup. This series is exclusive to Walmart and it features wrestling superstars from multiple eras, including now. New images reveal that Series #3 of the figure line includes Elite editions of Chad Gable, Jason Jordan, Miss Elizabeth, and Seth Rollins. Walmart's site also lists a few new 3-packs featuring Elite figures that are also due to be released soon, but who exactly are in those 3-packs was never identified. No word has been given on when the next series will be released in Walmart stores.
