Since being cashed in on at WrestleMania 31 by Seth Rollins, Brock Lesnar has had a rocky road in the WWE in regaining his championship. After being forced to re-ignite his feud with the Undertaker, he has remained mostly silent, not letting anyone in on his strategy in getting back what is rightfully his. With an injury to Seth Rollins putting him out of action and putting the WWE World Heavyweight Championship up for grabs, it’s the perfect time for The Beast to re-emerge. The Mattel WWE Elite 37 Brock Lesnar is a perfect representation of a man who shows no fear, is extremely feared, and is completely void of mercy for anything that might stand in his way.
So few expected and even fewer are not at all shocked by The Undertaker’s defeat by Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 30. With a legendary WrestleMania win-streak on the line, Brock Lesnar managed to make quick work of The Undertaker, man-handling him and ending the undefeated streak, giving The Phenom a 21-1 record. Since, Brock has been recognized as both WWE World Heavyweight Champion and Paul Heyman has done his best to make sure fans remember exactly who changed the face of professional wrestling forever. The Mattel WWE figures released of both heavyweight Superstars have reflected their aggression, and perhaps, aging, for better or worse. Fans will find out at SummerSlam 2015 whether or not Undertaker will be defeated for good, but they can try to predict the action themselves with Mattel WWE wrestling action figures.
It’s San Diego Comic-Con again, and as always, Mattel has not disappointed in offering us a few WWE surprises with their Preview Night display! With a look at WWE Superstars and Legends both previously announced and debuting, Mattel’s attention to detail and excellent offerings are better than ever.
Offering a first look at previously announced figures like Tyson Kidd, Sting, and the nWo in Scott Hall and Kevin Nash, Mattel also displayed new, never before announced figures like The Ascension, Jimmy Hart, J & J Security and more! Also on display were updated versions of Mattel WWE Elite 37 standouts and a special WrestleMania 31 Seth Rollins. To see these and more, read on!
Fans are rejoicing as the Mattel WWE Elite Series 37 has finally been placed for pre-order at Ringside Collectibles. With a few of the figures already seen by the public, it looks to be one of the most popular series in recent memory. Mattel WWE Elite 37 includes:
Brock Lesnar has had what is arguably the most successful year in the history of professional wrestling. At WrestleMania XXX, he shocked the entire world and stopped The Undertaker dead in his tracks, destroying his streak and killing his WrestleMania momentum much to the chagrin of the WWE Universe. His Mattel WWE Elite 30 figure captures the version of Brock who took down the legendary streak perfectly.
This modern day, destructive Brock does not fear anyone in the WWE locker room and more importantly, does not fear a single thing on Earth. After making work of The Undertaker, he disappeared into the woods and reappeared to capture the WWE World Heavyweight Championship from John Cena. The WWE Universe was shocked once again as The Beast manhandled Cena, making him look like he would never return from the loss. The Authority presented Brock with a new WWE World Heavyweight Championship and declared a new era had begun.
Part of Brock Lesnar’s success can most certainly be attributed to Paul Heyman, his right hand man and manager who has stood by his side every step of his dominant journey. Negotiating with anyone and everyone but making sure they know the power they are dealing with, Heyman takes no nonsense from anyone, including Triple H and Stephanie McMahon. Brock Lesnar’s partnership with Heyman and dominance have been a mainstay since his WWE debut over a decade ago, when Heyman saw the very future that they are now living out on the way.
The Undisputed WWE Champion Brock Lesnar was young, dominant and not afraid to take on the likes of Hulk Hogan, Triple H or anyone who stood in his way. He was truly bringing the pain, and the Mattel WWE Brock Lesnar Here Comes the Pain Ringside Collectibles Exclusive is a perfect representation of this time. Brock was strong, undefeatable in most cases and ready for his future as a rock-solid athlete.
With no signs of stopping his monstrous career, it can be said that Brock Lesnar hit his stride when he was younger and has not stopped.

The Mattel WWE Elite 30 wrestling action figures are now available for pre-order! With a great mix of modern day Superstars and WWE Legends, fans are already clamoring for this Elite sets’ release!
Mattel WWE Elite 30 includes:
Animal (Legion of Doom)
Hawk (Legion of Doom)
With Lex Luger’s first Mattel WWE figure treatment ever, fans are to be treated to a representation of the Lex Express himself during his pique WWE days just before jumping ship to WCW. Likely red, white and blue American style attire will be what Lex dons for his first Mattel release and a physique like no other, full of unmatched muscle.
Brock Lesnar has not received an updated Mattel WWE Elite since Series 19, so fans of the Next Big Thing will likely be thrilled to see an updated version of the man who single-handedly destroyed Undertaker’s WrestleMania reputation. Expect a bigger, badder and angrier version of the life-time Paul Heyman guy.
Ryback has re-invented himself as a tag team specialist but his brute strength and size have remained the same as he jumps in to another Mattel WWE Elite set. With a selection of singlets as massive as his arms, Mattel should have no problem delivering a detailed, exciting version of the Big Guy to the Feed Me Morons.
The Legion of Doom includes Hawk and Animal and were represented in the Mattel WWE Legends 1 Series with old school attires. Leaving a bit to be desired for fans in both look and body shape, Hawk and Animal make their return in Mattel WWE Elite 30, likely in the red and black Road Warrior gear they are most well known for. With rumors of a new body shape for Animal, Hawk can’t be far behind and wrestling figure collectors will receive the versions of this legendary tag team that they’ve been waiting for.
Batista made his return to the WWE just in time for the Royal Rumble. Despite negative fan reaction and leaving the WWE once again, he has forced himself to stay overwhelmingly positive and take the feedback of the haters with a grain of salt. All hate aside, wrestling figure fans are looking for an updated, modern day version of the Animal who makes his first appearance in an Elite set since his original departure.

The Mattel WWE Elite Series 30 lineup has finally been revealed, and fans are going wild with the announcement of a mix of modern day WWE Superstars and WWE Legends! WWE Elite 30 includes:
Hawk (Legion of Doom)
Animal (Legion of Doom)
With Ryback’s newfound ability as a tag-team specialist working hard to own the scene with the likes of Curtis Axel, Ryback has finally found a place in the WWE where he is fully comfortable. A new Mattel WWE Ryback Elite will help ease the demand of this ever-popular WWE Superstar and offer another of his extremely detailed singlets in wrestling figure form.
Since returning to the WWE, Batista will receive his first Mattel WWE Elite figure in years. Hopefully representing his new, Hollywood-style attitude, this Elite will more than likely be packed with a few accessories, and if fans are lucky, a pair of skinny jeans with ripping ability.
Lex Luger was once an unstoppable WWE Superstar, chugging off on the ‘Lex Express’ and taking the WWE Universe by storm. His American-themed outfits and patriotism made him a fan favorite during his short WWE run and wrestling figure fans have been clamoring for a Lex Luger figure since the Mattel WWE Elite and Legends lines have existed.
The Road Warriors, also known as the Legion of Doom, consist of the unstoppable Hawk and Animal. Although they had debut figures in Mattel’s WWE Legends line, they finally make a return, hopefully in the red shoulder pads that fans have been dying for since their original release. If this isn’t the case, fans would certainly be happy with blue shoulder pads or even LOD 2000 attire.
Brock Lesnar looks to end the Undertaker’s streak at WrestleMania 30, but in the meantime his ring attire has changed very little since re-debuting in the WWE. With the possibility of a new headsculpt for an Elite Brock, this figure could give fans another modern day version of the Beast.

The Undertaker has finally arrived upon the landscape of the WWE Universe, just in time to remind Superstars and fans alike that he has a WrestleMania streak to maintain. With plans to continue his streak into WrestleMania XXX, the lights went down and the fans shook at WWE Monday Night RAW. The Undertaker stood in the WWE ring face to face with Brock Lesnar, the self-proclaimed ‘Baddest Man on the Planet,’ and only had to make a singular gesture to make his goals known. With the turn of his head towards the WrestleMania XXX sign, both the Undertaker and Brock Lesnar knew that they were destined to face off on the grandest stage of them all. For Mattel WWE wrestling figure fans, the possibilities in play are extremely fruitful with many excellent choices to choose from when booking their own Brock Lesnar vs. Undertaker match.
Mattel WWE Elite 27 Undertaker!
The Mattel WWE Elite 27 Undertaker is intimidating wrestling figure fans like never before with his Entrance Robe complete with current, modern look including spikes and hood. It also includes a head sculpt with Undertaker’s shaved, semi-mohawk haircut and icy blue eyes. With complete Elite articulation and the most up to date version of Undertaker a wrestling fan can find, anyone looking to continue Undertaker’s streak early would be hard pressed to find a better action figure of the Dead Man.
Mattel WWE Ringside Collectibles ‘Here Comes the Pain’ Brock Lesnar Exclusive!
An excellent choice for any wrestling figure fan looking for a more classic approach to defeating the Undertaker’s streak can find it with the Mattel WWE ‘Here Comes the Pain’ Brock Lesnar Exclusive. With Undisputed Championship, t-shirt and tattoos accurate to Brock’s peak time period, the current Undertaker may have even more trouble with a younger, more dangerous version of Brock Lesnar. A fantasy match-up of “old school’ Brock Lesnar and “legendary” Undertaker could prove to be the WrestleMania main event fans have been waiting for.
Mattel WWE WrestleMania XXX Series Brock Lesnar!
Speaking of Brock Lesnar, his intensity and drive to eliminate the Undertaker’s undefeated WrestleMania streak couldn’t be more apparent in his Mattel WWE WrestleMania XXX Series figure. With updated, accurate tattoos, MMA-style wrestling gear and a head scan roaring with power, Brock Lesnar at the very least, truly looks like the baddest man on the planet. Just in time for WrestleMania XXX, this basic style figure carries standard articulation and comes packaged in WrestleMania XXX style carding.
Mattel WWE WrestleMania XXX Series Undertaker!
The Undertaker is not far behind Brock Lesnar in the Mattel WWE WrestleMania XXX Series set, complete with an updated look, accurate tattoos and a perfectly painted head sculpt. Looking to keep the streak alive, this figure trades in the gear and wild spikes for old fashioned brute Undertaker-style strength. Also packaged with WrestleMania XXX carding and ready to deliver a Tombstone Piledriver Brock Lesnar’s way, this is the most up to date, basic version of Undertaker a wrestling figure fan can get, especially with the WrestleMania XXX symbols.
Brock Lesnar is no easy foe to tackle, but Undertaker has kept his WrestleMania streak alive for so long it would be an unwise decision to bet against the power and raw mysticism of the Phenom.

Rumors have been running rampant that the beastly Brock Lesnar has been secretly planning a return to the octagon with UFC. He has openly and publicly claimed he is retired from his MMA career and vowed never to return, but rumors of some sort of superfight including Brock are the talk of the mixed martial arts town. This may seem difficult when considering his WWE career, but fans continue to speculate. Since debuting in the WWE, Brock Lesnar has been considered one of the most feared men on the planet, and his sheer wrestling ability is a major part of that. With WWE Undisputed Championship included, The Ringside Collectibles Exclusive ‘Here Comes The Pain’ Mattel WWE Brock Lesnar action figure embodies Brock’s first and most impactful WWE run:
Brock Lesnar Mattel WWE Ringside Collectibles Here Comes the Pain Exclusive!
Since returning to the WWE, Brock Lesnar has sported an MMA-style attire, including his sponsors and logos on his shorts. Although these cannot be captured in a Mattel WWE figure due to cross-licensing issues, the shorts and the fighting spirit remain, like in Brock’s Mattel WWE Elite 19 figure. This is the current, modern day version of The Next Big Thing:
Brock Lesnar in Mattel WWE Elite 19!
Since Brock Lesnar enjoys time away from the ring and can’t always be present after leaving UFC for a WWE return, he has pulled no punches in maintaining a representative. That representative is none other than Paul Heyman, ECW founder and best friend of the big, bad brawler. Mattel captured the likeness of their business arrangement in Mattel WWE Battle Packs 25. The first ever Mattel WWE Paul Heyman figure is included:
Mattel WWE Battle Packs 25 Paul Heyman and Brock Lesnar!
Only time will tell if the very private Brock Lesnar is planning a return to the UFC. Will he balance his time between both companies? Is the idea that he could return to professional fighting just hot air? One thing is certain, Mattel has given fans excellent versions of this very big, very intimidating man.
