We all watched, we all cried. Ric Flair retired at WrestleMania XXIV, coming to the ring with amazing prowess and pride as he faced Shawn Michaels in what would be the final match of his WWE career. As he beckoned HBK to deliver him a final Sweet Chin Music, tears streamed down his face in a now classic moment. That very moment will now be forever commemorated thanks to the newest Mattel WWE Defining Moments Ric Flair!

WOOO! Ric Flair is FINALLY a Mattel WWE Wrestling Figure!
The legendary Ric Flair has finally been announced as a Mattel WWE wrestling action figure! The Nature Boy has been noticeably absent from the Mattel WWE line up to this point due to inactivity with the company. That has all changed seemingly over night as Flair, who returned to the WWE what seemed like ages ago, has finally been secured by Mattel with a contract and his first Mattel WWE figure has been revealed! The Defining Moments line, previously ended at Series 5, will make an exception for Ric Flair with a surprise exclusive featuring Flair at his absolute best in Defining Moments packaging.
This version of Flair includes his first ever headsculpt developed by Mattel and after years and years of speculation, fans have not been disappointed as to what he looks like. The limousine ridin’, jet flyin’ handsome Flair has his long, flowing locks and a fight ready expression.
With blue ring attire with his initials sketched into the trunks and on the back of those tall, blue and white laced boots, Flair is one of the all time greats and is finally represented perfectly in a Mattel WWE wrestling action figure. You can almost picture this figure doing the nature walk all by itself.
The Nature Boy wouldn’t be the Nature Boy without a wildly elaborate, detailed entrance robe and Mattel has gone above and beyond to give Flair that in this special wrestling figure treatment. With white trim and a black and white pattern, this robe fits the Nature Boy like a million dollar glove and defines him perfectly. Also included is the World Heavyweight Championship, marking just one of the important titles Flair has held in his career as a 16 time world champion.
Hopefully this is the first of many Ric Flair action figures to come, but if it isn’t, it truly defines just how incredible of a talent and just how unique of a wrestler the Nature Boy is. Mattel has gone above and beyond for the release of the first Ric Flair and taken wrestling figure fans by complete surprise. They wont want to miss their chance to own this exclusive, one of a kind Mattel WWE wrestling figure of one of the most legendary wrestlers of all time.
