Woooo! Today, we look at the Gamestop exclusive “Retrofest” action figure of Ric Flair. Dressed in his iconic red robe from Wrestlemania VIII, and packaged inside an arcade cabinet, this figure may be one of the greatest Flair figures of all time.

With NY Toy Fair looming on the horizon, some companies have already begun making big reveals. Mezco has been doing it for the past few weeks, teasing a new Jack Torrance Living Dead Doll and a new One:12 Captain Marvel figure based on Brie Larson’s look in the new movie.
NECA has now joined the reveals, debuting on their Facebook a long-anticipated and equally long teased 18-inch Shredder action figure! Based on his look in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie from 1990, this figure was definitely worth the wait!
Check out the photo gallery below:
Not only does Shredder come with a variety of weapons and different removable hands, his face mask is also removable, giving us a glimpse of the man under the metal mask. Plus, his cape is removable, and can I just say – that cape always bothered me. It just looked like a trash bag hanging off his shoulders. Definitely looks much better here.
The big question is will The Shredder and the movie-style Foot Clan ninja join their 7″ brethren and be made into smaller action figures too? One can only hope, and seeing as how the TMNT movie figures are hitting mainstream stores like Gamestop, perhaps that’s a positive step forward in making these less exclusive [to conventions] and more accessible to everyone.
Oooooh yeeaaaahh! Wrestling figure fans will be elated to hear the news on a new figure that may be hard to find, but worth the hunt.
Earlier today, Mattel unveiled their special new packaging for their exclusive Macho Man Randy Savage. The box harkens back to the old WWF arcade cabinets, albeit with a new name. It makes a figure that was previously just a new deco for an existing figure into a must-have collectable.
The Macho Man figure is coming soon to a Gamestop near you, and will retail for around $30. It’s quite the price jump from previous Gamestop exclusives like their Samoa Joe and “List of Jericho” Chris Jericho, but the deluxe packaging is likely the reason for this leap in cost. Also joining Randy Savage is a new Shawn Michaels in his Rockers era outfit. No news at this time on whether or not this is the start of a new series for Gamestop or just a one-off, and if HBK will share this box art.
Will you be adding this figure into your wrestling collection?
