The Mattel WWE Elite 29 lineup has been revealed, and it is filled with surprises that WWE wrestling figure fans were not quite expecting. With veterans and newcomers, the lineup is fresh and will include:
- CM Punk
- Damien Sandow
- Erick Rowan
- Luke Harper
- Andre The Giant
CM Punk has made his way into another Mattel WWE wrestling figure set, this time an Elite set, despite leaving WWE for good. Unsure of the possibly look at this point, wrestling figure fans can only speculate as to whether or not this will be a good send-off for the Best in the World.
Providing intellect to the masses in the form of teachings and musings, Damien Sandow brings his unique brand of intelligence to another Mattel WWE set. Fans may expect a Money in the Bank briefcase accessory or a possible removable t-shirt of Damien Sandow’s theory of evolution.
Luke Harper, the gigantic and dirty-shirted behemoth of the Wyatt Family, sports a beard before sporting beards were a thing in the WWE and wears flexible blue jeans. He is ready to attack and with Elite articulation, he will be even more ready to dish out the Wyatt’s brand of punishment.
Erick Rowan is also featured in Elite 29, complete with his bright red hair and hopefully a removable sheep mask accessory, which would delight fans of both WWE figures and the Wyatt Family. He currently wrestles with a jumpsuit attire, so it remains to be seen how Mattel will produce him, either similar to The Shield with molded gear or with a cloth set.
Goldust’s inclusion surprised and excited many Mattel WWE wrestling figure fans as he hasn’t enjoyed an Elite figure since Elite 6. The question remains, however, of whether or not this treatment will be a modern day or classic look at Goldust, who has sported so many elaborate and different designs over the years. Fans will nonetheless be happy to get ‘Goldie’ back amongst their collection.
Andre The Giant, while featured in a short lived Matty Collector internet exclusive Mattel WWE Legends run, remains one of the most sought after and legendary WWE Superstars of all time. With his massive size and actually incredible wrestling ability, fans will continue to speak of him in ways that haven’t been matched. Sporting different hairstyles and different wrestling attires over his career, it remains a mystery as to what this Andre the Giant will look like, but it will be hard for Mattel to move away from his iconic WrestleMania III look.
