Mattel & WWE Announces Multiple New Action Figures, PHOTOS
Thursday, July 20, 2017
Mattel has announced a whole litany of very special toys that will be coming out over the next few months. In addition to items like a new scaled ring, a Defining Moments figure based on Chris Jericho's 2001 Vengeance title unification, and a new like of WWE women's dolls, we also have all of the usual new wave of regular action figure announcements. In Elite 52, we will see new editions of Braun Strowman, D'Lo Brown, Ken Shamrock, Kofi Kingston, Xavier Woods, and Seth Rollins. In Elite series #53, we will have new Elite editions of Alexa Bliss, Heath Slater, Chris Jericho, Kevin Owens, The Miz, and Big E. Check out the photos below for a preview:
Now we get to some of our basic figures. Popular Raw announcer Corey Graves will be making his Mattel debut in the upcoming Basic Series #77 lineup. The action figure includes Graves with a sort of smug headsculpt, and it has the commentator in his suit. An angry Seth Rollins is also coming in this lineup in his grey and black wrestling attire, and he has a pained on t-shirt as well. A smirking Roman Reigns joins the lineup with "The Big Dog's" signature removable vest decked out in black with orange trim. Dean Ambrose completes the entire Shield group in one series. Ambrose has a new headsculpt and a new pained on grey t-shirt. A new and improved version of Finn Balor is also coming to Series 77.
Alright, are you guys ready for this? Mattel has unveiled the motherload of all Elite action figures prior to today's Comic Con panel. While no physical editions of these figures were shown, the rendering indicate that they will be part of the Elite lineup soon. Gallows and Anderson, a "Flashback" Batista, "The Extraordinary Gentleman" Jack Gallagher, Steve Austin, Ember Moon, Mean Gene Okerlund, Maryse, Scotty 2 Hotty, a new Randy Savage, Neville, "The Perfect 10" Tye Dillinger, an updated Braun Strowman, "The Drifter" Elias Samson, Mickie James, Sheamus & Cesaro, and JAMES ELLSWORTH are all coming to the Elite lineup soon. Phew, that's a lot of names, and we've still got a few more days to go. Check back here for all of the latest updates from WWE during San Diego Comic Con this weekend.
