The Mattel WWE Panel at San Diego Comic Con 2014 proved full of surprises and amazing looks at upcoming Mattel WWE wrestling figures! Fans were treated to a panel that included Mattel designer Bill Miekina, Mattel’s Mitchell Cameron, Michael Cole, Daniel Bryan, Hulk Hogan, Paul Heyman and a surprise, completely unexpected appearance from Sting! The Stinger himself came in to debut his upcoming Mattel WWE figure and talk about his new partnership with WWE. Fans went wild! Watch the entire Mattel WWE SDCC 2014 Panel above and see close up images of the figures showcased and the panel members below. The upcoming figures shown include:
The Mattel WWE Series 41 wrestling action figures!
The newly announced Mattel WWE Series 41 will feature some of the most powerful, intense and silly WWE Superstars that the WWE has to offer! The set is now up for pre-order and includes:
Santino Marella receives his first Mattel WWE figure treatment since the pique of the “Cobra era” and he still carries the old, trusty snake around. This figure could possible feature that Cobra built in once again, but chances are we could be seeing a standard Santino this time around.
The whole world is in the hands of Bray Wyatt, who just recently enjoyed the release of his first ever Mattel WWE figure. This time around we can likely see a more colorful shirt or a different type of ring pants from the frightening Wyatt Family leader. Hopefully his Mattel WWE action figure won’t hypnotize the young owners who enjoy playing with it!
Antonio Cesaro has cemented his place as one of the strongest members of the WWE roster after winning the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal and swinging some of the biggest WWE Superstars like rag dolls. He has proven to be a literal super man, and will more than likely receive a new headsculpt treatment after his previous Mattel WWE Series figure left fans with a bit to be desired in that respect.
Fandango has danced his way into our hearts and souls providing arrogant comic relief amongst his wrestling talent. His latest Mattel WWE figure could feature a different style of facial hair and with so many colorful attire choices, it wouldn’t be surprising to see the most colorful Fandango yet, and that’s saying a lot.
Drew McIntyre has let his intensity hang loose to take a much more laid back approach to the WWE as a member of the 3 Man Band. 3MB finds McIntyre wearing leather pants, head bands and rocking out with the other members. This will be the first Drew McIntyre Mattel WWE wrestling figure in quite a while, so fans will more than likely be excited to expand their roster with him if they didn’t get the chance when he was a bit more…serious.
The leader of the Yes! Movement, Daniel Bryan has followed his dreams and made them all come true. He shows up in Mattel WWE Series 41 and will hopefully have a new headsculpt and an excited demeanor. His outfit will likely show off his style as WWE World Heavyweight Champion or even throw back to the challenges he faced while chasing that championship glory. Either way, the WWE Universe will be able to get behind their current leader.

Leading up to the WrestleMania 30 Tag Team Championship match, Cesaro and Jack Swagger have had their share of differences. Jack Swagger, once a main event player and powerful rookie, has taken a back seat as of late to his unsolicited partner, Cesaro. Cesaro, after a successful run with the United States Championship, has taken to using the ‘Real Americans’ tag team to his advantage and showcasing a stronger, more efficient side, gaining himself a WWE World Heavyweight Championship match at Elimination Chamber and momentum going into WrestleMania 30. Since then, both men have been at odds with their manager, Jack Swagger’s uncle, Zeb Colter playing their praises against each other. No one is sure as to why Zeb Colter would cause distrust between his two protégés, but they have managed to remain a team leading up to the Tag Team Championship opportunity. Mattel WWE wrestling figure fans have perfect versions of all three members of the ‘Real Americans’ to re-create the mistrust…or to make it dive even quicker than before.
Mattel WWE Series 37 Zeb Colter!
Zeb Colter is the mouthpiece of the ‘Real Americans’ tag team. With his shaking fists and dislike for anything he considers ‘anti-American’ he has been a loud, obnoxious presence in the WWE since coming to the aid of his nephew Jack Swagger. Recruiting Cesaro as another person he considers a ‘true Patriot,’ Colter often favors Cesaro and his outstanding ability over that of his nephew. In Mattel WWE Series 37, his spot on likeness is featured and in great detail, obvious by the likes of his dastardly mustache, combat vest and tie. You can almost expect the wrestling figure to shout ‘We the People’ in the middle of the night.
Mattel WWE Elite 23 Cesaro!
Cesaro was already doing his best to let the WWE Universe know that he considered himself more of an appreciative American than many of those who call the United States their home. Waving a flag and carrying the United States Championship as seen here in Mattel WWE Elite 23, Cesaro has since joined up with Swagger and Colter and offered a new level to the patriotism they carry. With the devastating ‘Cesaro swing,’ amazing uppercuts and brute strength, he’s one of the fastest rising WWE Superstars and clearly brings about the jealous ire of his partner, Jack Swagger.
Mattel WWE Elite 26 Jack Swagger!
Since opting to take a more ‘middle American’ approach to his wrestling style and demeanor, Jack Swagger has become scruffier, grumpier and more aggressive. No longer the smiling golden boy, Swagger feels, at the behest of his Uncle Zeb, that he is representative of what a true American really is. The ‘All American American’ is in Mattel WWE Elite 26 with his new look, waving a ‘Don’t Tread on Me’ flag and a black and grey wrestling singlet. While he may be jealous of his uncle taking a liking to Cesaro, Jack Swagger has raw wrestling ability of his own that is not to be overlooked, especially when in contention for the WWE Tag Team Championships. The ‘Real Americans’ could walk out triumphant at WrestleMania 30 thanks to Jack Swagger.
The Elimination Chamber 2014 is fast approaching and the WWE Universe is speculating as to which WWE Superstar is going to leave the event with the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. The overwhelmingly dangerous structure was first introduced by Eric Bischoff in 2002 and has been a major WWE spectacle ever since. With pods releasing a new Superstar every few minutes, anything can happen with no disqualification and tons upon tons of cold, hard steel trapping the world’s best wrestlers with no way out other than winning.
The participants include John Cena, Daniel Bryan, Randy Orton (the current WWE World Heavyweight Champion), Christian, Sheamus and Antonio Cesaro (now known simply as ‘Cesaro.’) A combining crop of veteran WWE Superstars and young, hungry competitors make it possible for the WWE Elimination Chamber 2014 match to be incredible. Each competitor featured is a definite Mattel WWE staple, and any wrestling figure fan with the Mattel WWE Elimination Chamber Playset would be able to re-enact the action of the event.
Elimination Chamber Participants Randy Orton and Daniel Bryan in Mattel WWE Battle Packs 27!
Daniel Bryan has been chasing Randy Orton ever since he cashed in his Money in the Bank Briefcase on the American Dragon at Summerslam 2013. After multiple distractions and opposition from The Authority, Daniel Bryan will finally get his chance to face off with Randy Orton again, like in Mattel WWE Battle Packs 27. However, Randy Orton knows the target is easily on his back, so he will have to be extra aggressive during his Elimination Chamber 2014 appearance. This Mattel WWE Battle Pack includes updated looks for both The Apex Predator and the Dazzler, along with the Money in the Bank Briefcase that has proved to be the catalyst for Daniel Bryan’s struggles.
Elimination Chamber Participant Sheamus in Mattel WWE Series 38!
Sheamus is right back in the picture after suffering an injury and disappearing from WWE television for almost 5 months. He has made it clear he is choosing no sides and looks to enter the 2014 Elimination Chamber with power and leave the WWE World Heavyweight Champion. His participation in the event will not surprise many in the WWE Universe and while he has been vocal about his intentions to regain the top spot in the WWE, he has yet to prove himself since returning. His Mattel WWE Series 38 wrestling figure showcases his new gold and silver wrestling attire.
Elimination Chamber Participant Christian in Mattel WWE Series 39!
Christian has lost most of his matches since qualifying to gain entry into the 2014 Elimination Chamber, so he is working off weak momentum and is now only participating in his second match for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship in his WWE career. However, he has been faced with impossible odds before and after proving he will not take sides with any member of the WWE locker room, Christian has the ability to be the surprise winner. In Mattel WWE Series 39, a confident and happier head sculpt on Christian reflects his current mentality as he gives his all because he may not have many more chances to do so.
Elimination Chamber Participant John Cena in Mattel WWE Series 39!
John Cena can be considered an easy favorite to win the WWE World Heavyweight Championship at Elimination Chamber. Having participated in the match numerous times before, he can also benefit from a weakened Randy Orton at the hands of other competitors. John Cena knows how to use all situations to his advantage. He is a Mattel WWE necessity, appearing here in Mattel WWE Series 39 with updated attire. Many of Cena’s fans in the Cenation will fully and completely expect him to win and face of with Batista at WrestleMania XXX, as long as he can survive the Elimination Chamber with no outside interference.
Elimination Chamber Participant Antonio Cesaro in Mattel WWE Series 27!
Antonio Cesaro received his first Mattel WWE figure in WWE Series 27, complete with painted chest hair and painted leg wraps. He will now receive his first WWE World Heavyweight Championship opportunity at the 2014 Elimination Chamber and will have to fend off five other WWE Superstars to prove victorious. He is not a veteran in the WWE, but proves with his brute strength and incredible move set that he is a force to be reckoned with. He is certainly the dark horse participant in the match up and will be a contender for years to come.
The Mattel WWE Elimination Chamber Playset!
The Elimination Chamber has the ability to offer glory to anyone walking out of it victorious and horrible defeat to anyone losing not only their match, but their pride and adding an additional possibility of serious injury. The Mattel WWE Elimination Chamber Playset has the ability to offer a re-enactment of all those emotions for any Mattel WWE wrestling figure collector. With the inclusion of these six participants, the stakes can be raised and the show can be unforgettable.
