New pics have surfaced from WWE Battle Pack 48. Unless you’re a fan of Zack Ryder and Mojor Rawley there’s absolutely nothing to be hyped about from this wave.

I had a passing interest in what Mattel was going to do with the Dudes With Attitude set. Shawn Michaels and Diesel rocked a pretty cool blue and black color scheme during their reunited tag team run in late 95. The Battle Pack 48 set is just the two guys tossed together in a set. This is more of a Wrestlemania 11 set with what looks like the Ringside Exclusive HBK head.
American Alpha is also disappointing. The Chad Gable figure might win worst figure of the year honors for Mattel. Instead of making a better head sculpt to replace the Dalton Castle one they’ve been using, Mattel opted to paint over the mustache. It’s not like the mustache vanished either as it’s clearly still on the figure. That’s ridiculously cheap even for the Battle Pack line.
Of the set the clear winner has to be The Hype Bros. Zack Ryder and Mojo Rawley both turned out great with bright, colorful attires. If Mattel puts these guys in an Elite set, I’ll definitely pick them up.
