Shane McMahon was unsuccessful in his bid to gain control of the WWE. In a valiant effort, Shane O Mac went toe to toe with The Undertaker, standing tall against the dead man at WrestleMania 32…even going so far as to leap off the Hell in a Cell to try and defeat the person doing his father’s bidding. Unfortunately, Shane failed at his dream and did not gain control of the WWE, but many questions have been raised since his return. Whether or not the junior McMahon will remain is still being considered, but wrestling figure fans have a different question in mind. Since this is the first time Shane has appeared on WWE television since Mattel began to make wrestling action figures…when will we see a Mattel WWE Shane McMahon figure?
As recently announced at San Diego Comic-Con 2014, Mattel will finally be partnering with Hulk Hogan to release Mattel WWE Hulk Hogan action figures! While the possibilities are endless as to which figures could be released as Hogan has so many different, iconic looks, we were treated to a few of them at Comic-Con. One is an 80’s version of the Hulkster, and another looks to be a modern day version of everyone’s favorite legendary wrestler.
This basic version looks to have a sculpt better reflecting how Hulk Hogan looks now, in all of his years young. With black pants, a red shirt and a prototype sculpt, it’d be perfect for anyone looking for a new General Manager of their wrestling figures. A modern day Hulk Hogan would make many wrestling figure fans thrilled.
The first ever Mattel WWE Elite Hulk Hogan will better reflect one of Hogan’s most popular eras, his time as WWF Champion in the late 80’s. With Elite articulation and a body mold to specifically fit Hulk Hogan like no other, this will also come with the style of WWF Championship belt at the time. It’s the definitive Hulk Hogan for any Hulkamaniacs who grew up in the 80’s.
With the nWo, Hogan’s 2002 WWE return and all of WCW, New Japan and beyond, there are tons of styles and looks that Mattel can produce throughout Hogan’s career. This is just the beginning, and fans should look forward to more Hulk Hogan figures to come in the future.
