Mattel reveals WWE Ultimates Ronda Rousey and Ultimate Warrior figures

Ronda Rousey’s WWE run makes me wonder if this is what it would have been like if Mike Tyson decided to join the WWF full time in 1999. No hate as Rousey has been better than advertised. To capitalize on her popularity, Mattel revealed that Rousey and Ultimate Warrior will kickoff the WWE Ultimates line. 

OK, clearly Ultimate Warrior makes sense in a WWE Ultimates line, right?

The big reveal here is the Rousey figure. With this setup, you’ll have the only Rousey you need as the figure comes with removable attachments for a ring jacket version — along with additional heads — and a wrestling version. But that’s not all. Rousey also has double jointed knees and elbows, articulation points I’ve been complaining have been lacking in WWE women figures for years now. I’m only mildly invested in the modern product these days, but this Rousey figure is absolutely a must-own.

The Warrior figure isn’t as impressive largely because Mattel has cranked out two million Warrior variants. The Ultimates Warrior figure has two head sculpts — one with smeared face paint for a mid-match look — and some swappable hands. It’s based on his Halloween Havoc look, which would be great if his opponent — Hollywood Hogan — wasn’t still on figure blacklist island.

The torso joint on Warrior is different from existing figures, which might be problematic if it allows for more range of motion like I assume. I don’t necessarily like the way the torso slims down around the waist though. What do you all think?

Also on display at the Mattel Shop today was the Elite 68 King Mabel. This figure looks like it could be a contender for one of the best releases of 2019. It looks amazing!

Additionally, the American Bad A$$ original Undertaker look was on display. If Mattel insists on not giving us a 1997 Attitude Era Undertaker, this is the next best thing.
