It doesn’t seem likely that any green arrow can stop the power of Stardust! Cody Rhodes is long gone, and in his place is a mental rarity, a bizarre and otherworldly being named Stardust. His out-of-this-world ring attires, face paint and wild-eyed demeanor have made him one of the most memorable WWE Superstars in recent memory. In the same vein as his brother, Goldust but catapulting into outer space as often as possible, Stardust has proven that he is a force to be reckoned with, even for celebrity and Green Arrow star Stephen Amell. Before Stardust faces off with Amell at SummerSlam 2015, let’s take a look at some of his most impressive wrestling figure offerings to date, including his Mattel WWE latest!
The lineups for the upcoming Mattel WWE Series 50 and Mattel WWE Series 51 wrestling action figures have been revealed! With a mix of legends and modern day WWE Superstars, fans are continuing to get great variety from Mattel WWE figures.
Mattel WWE Series 50!
The Mattel WWE Series 50 includes:
Sami Zayn has burst on to the NXT scene and been NXT Champion for an impressive reign. Fans of the WWE sub-brand have been clamoring for a high flying, acrobatic version of the athletic WWE Superstar and have awaited the arrival of his figure almost as much as his roster debut.
Summer Rae’s Total Divas presence and controversial love life have made her a WWE Diva that fans have loved to hate. Many Mattel WWE wrestling figure fans still are constantly in awe of her beauty, however, and have been ready to add her to their collection.
The older brother of Stardust, Goldust has taken a meaner turn than most WWE fans are used to since teaming up in his search for the cosmic key. With a return to the Mattel WWE wrestling figure line, he adds a veteran presence.
Adam Rose’s carefree party time attitude has been something that the WWE Universe either loves or hates. With no sign of the bunny, Adam Rose’s Mattel WWE wrestling figure debut begs you not to be a lemon…but a rosebud!
Seth Rollins continues to step on the necks (literally) of those he once loved as he tries to climb atop the WWE mountain. Fans will likely be on the lookout for an updated version of his in-ring attire in the Mattel WWE Series 50.
Daniel Bryan finally makes his in-ring return at the 2015 Royal Rumble, and he returns to the Mattel WWE figure line in Series 50. With colorful yet edgy trunks, Daniel Bryan’s wrestling ability continues to amaze.
Mattel WWE Series 51!
The Mattel WWE Series 51 includes:
Stone Cold Steve Austin
Stephanie McMahon has been a thorn in the side of those in the WWE locker room that are trying to get ahead, and after over five years without a wrestling figure, she finally returns. Her ring attire from her match with Brie Bella shows off her physique and proves that she can still compete with the best of the Divas.
When Cody Rhodes lost his mind, he became Stardust and proved that the search for the cosmic key meant moving far into an insane place. Teaming with Goldust, his debut Mattel WWE wrestling figure brings together the bizarre Rhodes Brothers for many Mattel WWE wrestling figure collectors.
Stone Cold Steve Austin maintains legendary status and remains one of the most popular SOB’s of all time. His Mattel WWE Series 51 appearance likely brings a version of the Rattlesnake that’s ring ready and looking for a major fight with any takers.
Heath Slater has been moving forward with an intense solo career and proves it when he returns to the ring, tongue wagging and looking to irritate the WWE Universe. His latest Mattel WWE wrestling figure gives a version of the One Man Rock Band that can’t take whatever he dishes out.
The extremely talented Dolph Ziggler tries his best to fight out against the oppression he faces in the WWE locker room and proves it each and every time he steps into the ring. With a return to the Mattel WWE figure line in Series 51, he will likely show off that he’s here to stay.
The insanity of the Lunatic Fringe Dean Ambrose gets proven day in and day out. In Mattel WWE Series 51, Dean Ambrose will wear a newer, loose-cannon type style that is a far cry from his calculated days of The Shield. Now his madness cannot be trusted and no one, not even his worst enemies, knows how he will strike next.
Mattel WWE Battle Packs 29 wrestling action figures!
The Mattel WWE Battle Packs 29 set features some of the hottest tag teams and rivalries in the WWE today! With newcomers, close siblings and deep rooted grudge matches, the variety is clear this time around. Mattel WWE Battle Packs 29 includes:
Cody Rhodes & Goldust (The Rhodes Brothers)
CM Punk vs. Ryback
Since debuting in the WWE, Los Matadores have brought a stark contrast to the seriousness of the tag team division’s mainstays like The Shield and the Wyatt Family. With wildly exaggerated movesets and eccentric bull fighter outfits, they have become fan favorites among the WWE’s younger generation of fans. With their bull El Torito accompanying them to the ring, their matches have proved entertaining. The Mattel WWE Los Matadores figures will likely feature their pink face masks and current outfits. El Torito is also rumored to be released in an upcoming Mattel WWE Series set, so fans who love Los Matadores will be able to re-create their unique brand of silly action.
Cody Rhodes and Goldust enjoyed a renaissance as they teamed together and captured the WWE Tag Team Championships. Brothers who have long wanted to work together but have been unable to, Cody Rhodes and Goldust took advantage of the opportunity they were given and had a successful run. However, they have since lost their championship glory and Cody has grown increasingly frustrated with his brother. While they haven’t quite moved on from each other, the outlook doesn’t look great. Maybe if they saw their triumphant team-up immortalized in Mattel WWE wrestling figure form they would be more apt to work out their differences.
CM Punk has not been seen nor heard from in the WWE since the 2014 Royal Rumble. Ryback, who once feuded heavily with CM Punk, has moved on to specialize in tag team wrestling with Curtis Axel, but at one point these two monstrous WWE Superstar personalities were at each others throats. Both former ‘Paul Heyman guys,’ this Mattel WWE Battle Pack will likely commemorate their short feud over the services of a manager they both thought they could trust. Though neither ended up benefiting from Paul Heyman in the end, they managed to do their best to outperform each other and it may have been one of CM Punk’s last great endeavors in the WWE.
The Mattel WWE Battle Packs 29 lineup has been revealed, much to the excitement of wrestling action figure fans. Including new releases and a possible now-missing old favorite, this set is going to be hotly anticipated. It includes:
Los Matadores (Diego & Fernando) with 2 hat accessories
Ryback & CM Punk with table accessory
Cody Rhodes & Goldust with two Tag Team Championship accessories
Since making their way onto the tag team scene of WWE, Los Matadores have become fan favorites as they are accompanied by El Torito and wear flamboyant, colorful outfits. With wrestling skill to back up their antics, wrestling figure fans will likely pit them against their other established tag teams.
Although CM Punk has disappeared from the WWE radar, the now disgruntled Ryback still attempts to make as much of an impact as possible. With a table accessory, this Battle Pack could be a wrestling figure fan’s way to send CM Punk out the door correctly, with a massive loss to the machine, Ryback. Or, the Battle Pack could set the stage for CM Punk’s triumphant return.
Cody Rhodes and Goldust are living out their dream of being siblings working together and taking the WWE by storm. This Battle Pack will likely commemorate their hugely successful WWE Tag Team Championship run, capturing the titles from The Shield and defending them against worthy suitors. An updated Mattel WWE Goldust figure has been sought after by fans so they likely won’t be disappointed!
