Mattel has created some fun San Diego Comic Con exclusive figures from Issac Yankem to The Shockmaster. As revealed today by SI.com, the latest exclusive is Slim Jim style Macho Man Randy Savage.
This is a weird choice as Savage is hardly a character Mattel hasn’t been shy about making any and all versions from various eras. I’m pretty much Macho Man’d out at this point and without getting all of them I’ve got about 10 in my collection. I’d love for Mattel to be the consistent in cranking out Sting, Ric Flair, Shawn Michaels and Razor Ramon figures.
That said, this is a cool Slim Jim version of Savage that actually looks like it has a new head sculpt. The packaging is also pretty cool as well.

We’ve also got the lineup for WWE Elite70 courtesy of Wrestling Figure News:
Overall, this is a pretty uninspired lineup especially for old school collectors. Assuming the McMahon figure is from Attitude Era or maybe vintage 80s announcer Vince, that’s just one flashback figure. And he could easily be a modern figure as well.
Outside of Gargano and EC3 we’ve gotten plenty of Balors and Rollins figures since they’re prominently featured in the Top Picks line. Maybe Ziggler will feature his ponytail modern look from his pairing with Drew McIntyre, but he’s always been a guy Mattel has struggled to really get the likeness down just right.
