Arguably one of the most eventful San Diego Comic-Con’s ever for the Mattel WWE line, the Mattel WWE display at San Diego Comic-Con 2014 showcased some amazing new wrestling figures and super detailed versions of extremely sought after Legends and Superstars!
– A Mattel WWE Hulk Hogan is now a reality, along with a Mattel WWE Razor Ramon, Mattel WWE Ric Flair and a Mattel WWE Sting! After a surprising reveal, fans got to have a close look at early builds of each on display.
– Showing off the latest Mattel WWE Elite 30, Mattel WWE Elite 31 and Mattel WWE Elite 32 sets, some standouts included the Legion of Doom in new, spot on attire and a Wyatt Family member Daniel Bryan. Also making their way into the display was a Cruiserweight Champion Rey Mysterio and the Lex Express himself, Lex Luger.
– Big Van Vader himself, Vader has made his way back into the Mattel WWE line with an elaborate representation of his helmet and ‘It’s Vader Time’ tights! Also featured was a Mattel WWE Elite Rocky Maivia, the happy version of The Rock before he became the thrilling Superstar he is today.
– Fans have been clamoring for a Mattel WWE Paige figure and Mattel placed one on display just to give them a taste of what is in store! This accurate Paige figure looks as though she could begin screeching at any moment, just like in real life.

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.
