Mattel has revealed a new wave of WWE figures joining their basic line, and this one includes a female first for the toys.
Joining the line-up in Basic Series 95, Sonya Deville will be immortalized in plastic for the first time. Not only that, but Sonya will also be the chase figure, so collectors should be on the lookout for her black attire as the rare variant.
Also in the line are other fan favorites, including Rusev, AJ Styles, a particularly great looking Bray Wyatt, and a classic Kurt Angle with hair. While I do not typically pick up basic figures, that Bray head makes this a hard one to pass one. And I am always for more Kurt Angle figures with hair, and am pleased with how many different Kurt Angle figures Mattel has released so far. Fingers crossed we get Kurt in a toupee at some point, but that is a story for another day.

On this episode of The Wrestling Figure Historian, we continue our look at Wal-Mart’s WWE Flashback basic series by spotlighting Sgt. Slaughter. This was a unique time for Slaughter as a heel and led to a big feud with both The Ultimate Warrior and Hulk Hogan, and garnered him this very unique figure from Mattel.
What storyline does this figure fit into, and whatever happened to the Atomic Noogie? Watch the video to find out.
