WWE Hall of Fame Series 5 Action Figures are AVAILABLE NOW!
Wednesday, November 8, 2017
It has been a while, but Target stores are now selling a new series of Mattel's WWE Hall of Fame Elite action figures. After some speculation as to whether or not the line would continue production, Mattel's next set of figures in the series have arrived. As the name suggests, this exclusive line celebrates members of the WWE Hall of Fame by awarding them with Elite figures with immense detail, articulation and accessories. Series 5 of the action figure line is now available in Target stores, and the series includes brand new figure of WWE Legends including Diesel, George "The Animal" Steele, "Rowdy" Roddy Piper, and Jake "The Snake" Roberts.
One figure in this lineup is legendary WWF wrestler Jake "The Snake" Roberts. Jake's newest figure includes a headsculpt brandishing his signature sinister facial expression. His tights are white with blue snake designs on the sides. He has white and black wrestling boots. Of course, Roberts includes a snake accessory, and he even has another lighter snake thrown in for good measure. Roberts was inducted into the Hall of Fame back in 2014.
After several years of having no action figure released, the late George "The Animal" Steele has a wonderfully recreated new action figure. His wild open mouth with the green tongue, as well as Steele's obscene amount of body hair, are all featured in this action figure. Steele also has a bouquet of flowers and his favorite stuffed animal "Mine." Steele was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 1995.
To this day, one of the most sought-after action figures that Mattel has ever made is their figure of Diesel from Elite 16. That was released back in 2012, but Mattel has finally provided collectors with another figure based on the former WWF Champion at last. Diesel is made in black ring attire and he includes sunglasses and a removable biker vest. This version of Diesel is based on his early run in WWF, so he includes the old school Intercontinental Championship as well. Diesel (as Kevin Nash) was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2015.
The final figure is a much-needed upgraded version of one of the most legendary professional wrestlers from the 1980s. An Elite version of "Rowdy" Roddy Piper has been made with a screaming headsculpt. Piper is wearing blue wrestling trunks. He includes a removable rubber kilt accessory and a removable cloth "Hot Rod" t-shirt. Piper was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame back in 2005.
These figures and more are available now at Target stores!
