New Funko Pops Announced! New Photos of Elite 54 & Belt Pack!
Tuesday, October 17, 2017
The wildly-successful Funko Pop Vinyl series will continue to feature some of WWE's greatest superstars. It was revealed today that new figurines of Braun Strowman, Alexa Bliss, and two new 'retro' versions of The Rock, as well as Razor Ramon, will be released this December. While this still has yet to be announced by Funko, it appears that a photo showing that a Shinsuke Nakamura figure is also set to be released this year as a Toys R Us exclusive. This was revealed in a new catalog for the toy store, and it is set to come out on October 26th. Be on the lookout for your favorite WWE Superstars' new figures as they arrive later on this year.
In other news, Mattel has revealed new photos showing off Elite 54. This lineup has been known for quite a while now, but new photos of the finished products have officially been released, and they are currently available for pre-order. The series includes the first-ever Elite version of Charlotte, 205 Live's Rich Swann also receives his first action figure here, and the set also includes new versions of John Cena, The Usos, and Bray Wyatt as well. The set also has new packaging, and each figure includes a piece of a diorama display created by artist Rob Schamberger. The set will be released in early-November, but you can pre-order the figures here: https://www.ringsidecollectibles.com/mattel-toy-wrestling-action-figures-wwe-elite-54.html
The final item that is available now is something that is a bit different from Mattel. Rather than focus on a set of figures with accessories, the toy company will be producing a set just consisting of accessories. More specifically, Mattel is going to be releasing five rare WWE titles in a new Elite belt pack. Each championship has only been once, and they typically go for a lot of money online. So Mattel has made it easier to crown your figures as champions by releasing a new pack with the Hardcore Championship, the Rated R Championship, a spray painted World Heavyweight Championship brandishing 'NWO' initials, and the classic Raw and Smackdown tag team titles. The set is exclusive to RinsideCollectibles.com, and it will be coming out in mid-November. Check it out here: https://www.ringsidecollectibles.com/mattel-wwe-toy-wrestling-figure-belts-rex-140.html
