WWE Announces Comic Con Panel/Details, Brian Kendrick Figure Out
Saturday, July 7, 2018
The summer has officially begun, and that can only mean that the annual San Diego Comic Con is just around the corner. The enormous pop culture event takes place in July each year, and WWE is always on hand with Mattel to reveal some of their new action figures that they plan on rolling out soon. Last year's event saw a panel consisting entirely of female members of the WWE roster. This allowed Mattel to unveil their brand new line of WWE Superstars dolls, a toy line similar to Mattel's famous Barbie collection. The dolls, basics, Battle Packs, and Elite wave of figures have all proven to be tremendously successful, so how on earth will WWE and Mattel try to top themselves during this year's event?
It has just been confirmed that WWE and Mattel will be coming to Comic Con once again for another panel that will focus on the "WWE Elite Squad" group that was launched earlier this year. Cathy Kelley will be there to host the panel, and this year's panel will see Raw Superstars, and avid action figure collectors, Zack Ryder and Curt Hawkins take the stage. Current Raw Tag Team Champion "Woken" Matt Hardy will also be at the event, in addition to "a surprise superstar or two." Let the speculation begin on which figures and guests will be at Comic Con later this month! This year's panel will be taking place on July 19th at 11:15am PT, and Comic Con will continue through the 22nd as well.
One of the most entertaining comeback stories of 2016 occurred when The Brian Kendrick compete in the Cruiserweight Classic tournament. Although Kendrick did not win the tournament, WWE decided to re-sign him as a member of the cruiserweight division. Kendrick continues to compete regularly on 205 Live each Tuesday night, and now "The Man With a Plan" has finally received an updated action figure. Kendrick's first-ever Mattel figure is an Elite figure with a removable detailed jacket, accurate ring attire, and a wild-eyed headsculpt. He also comes with the signature flag that he carries with him to the ring. Kendrick is NOW AVAILABLE, and can only be purchased on Ringside Collectibles.
