Bret Hart and Shinsuke Nakamura Announced As Wave 2 of “WWE Ultimate Editon” Figures

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!

Braun Strowman WWE Retro Series 8 – Action Figure Review

It’s time to get these hands and check out Braun Strowman from Mattel’s WWE Retro Figures Series 8.

This retro figure includes his powerslam action feature, and was en route to being one of my favorite figures from the line. That quickly got derailed due to some quality control issues. Check out the video to see what I am talking about.

Liv Morgan WWE Figure Revealed at Vegas Toy Con 2019

The Riott Squad is one wrestler closer to completion, as WWE fans were excited to see another member of the pro wrestling stable unveiled.

The figure was unveiled at Vegas Toy Con this past weekend, where many of the WWE figures we saw on display at NY Toy Fair 2019 were brought out once more. A new addition joined the roster at this event, as Bill revealed on Instagram the new Elite Liv Morgan figure:

This will be the first ever action figure for Morgan.

Liv will be part of Elite series 69, and Bill added “Is it the only one?”, leading some to believe Liv will have the chase figure in this series. This may mean Liv will have two different figures in the same wave, a very cool surprise if true.

Morgan will be available exclusively at Target in late Summer.

Ruby Riott has already been released as part of Target’s NXT line, although she will be part of an upcoming WWE Elite line as well very soon. A Sarah Logan figure was teased at SDCC some time ago, so look for that later this year as well.

Mattel reveals WWE Basic Series 95 figures – Sonya Deville debuts in line

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.

Check out the full photo gallery to see all the figures:

Sgt. Slaughter Figure Review – WWE Flashback Series

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.
