Wrestlemania 35 is days away, and the wrestling world is going insane – especially on the East Coast! WWE Axxess is just about ready to get started, where Mattel will be unveiling many new action figures. Things just kicked off as the company revealed their second line of “WWE Ultimate Edition” figures, with the addition of Bret “The Hitman” Hart and Shinsuke Nakamura joining the series.
Check out photos below of both figures!
Bret, with his splatter paint outfit from the 90’s, will come with three different heads, which appear to have slots on the sides to put his signature sunglasses on.
I’m still not a fan of the hair that they have given Bret, especially since it looks like overcooked black pasta trickling down his forehead. I want this figure and will own it, but I do wish Mattel would do something about his hair to make it look a little less peculiar.
He also comes with eight hands, and a second set of arms and torso that combine to make his leather jacket look.
Nakamura will come with three different head sculpts, and six hands, as well as a spare torso and set of arms so he can wear his red jacket.
These are easily the best face sculpts we have seen for either wrestler, and getting three new heads with one figure is amazing. My only concern is the five ‘o’ clock shadow for both of them, since Mattel has been having trouble as of late with facial hair. I’ve avoided purchasing any of the new Seth Rollins Elite figures because the beards have all been terribly painted – no matter how many times I find him. I hope that since these are “Ultimate” editions, more care will be given with how paint is applied.
I was a big fan of the most recent Nakamura elite figure, and I am very excited for this version, although part of me wishes he came with another jacket since he has so many – but beggars can’t be choosers.
No release date has been announced yet for these, but I would expect them out by late summer or the fall of this year.
Stay tuned, as more WWE figure reveals are bound to happen over the next few days!
