Ringside Fest 2015 was a huge success! Fans were treated to meetings with their favorite WWE Superstars, including WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins, Lana, Paige, Intercontinental Champion Kevin Owens and Dolph Ziggler! While waiting patiently to meet them, they were able to have a look at some new, upcoming Mattel WWE wrestling action figures, including the newly announced upcoming nWo Wolfpac Kevin Nash Exclusive! Also on the way were the first Kevin Owens, Sasha Banks and Bailey Mattel WWE figures. They were peppered into a lineup of returning favorites, like Sheamus with his new and improved look, a Flashback style Chris Jericho, Paul Bearer, Undertaker and even new looks for Lana and Wade Barrett.
Tag Team and team-up and rivalry fans, rejoice! The Mattel WWE Battle Packs 35 and Mattel WWE Battle Packs 36 line-ups have finally been announced.
The Mattel WWE Battle Packs 35 includes:
Curtis Axel & Ryback
Jack Swagger & Zeb Colter
Kane & Roman Reigns
Finding a common ground in talent and aggression, Curtis Axel and Ryback came together to create Rybaxel. Providing a unique blend of muscle and wrestling ability, they created a bit of an unmatched tag team with wins, but more conflict than success. Ryback always makes sure to bring colorful, airbrushed outfits forward. Curtis Axel has recently proven that ‘Axelmania’ is runnin’ wild, but that is highly unlikely to appear as an attire for this figure based on how recently it happened. Only time will tell.
Kane has been doing Triple H’s corporate bidding since his rise to authoritative power. This means stopping Roman Reigns from being the ‘next big thing,’ so it’s no surprise the two massive forces would collide. Kane has both worn his mask and wrestled without it as of late, so it’s possible he could be ‘corporate’ or a fiery, unleashed version of himself. Roman Reigns wrestles with the power of a super human, so the more figures that fans can get their hands on of him, the better. It’s important to have access to your hero.
Jack Swagger and his uncle Zeb Colter represent a down, dirty and extremely proud sense of what it means to be Americans, whether the people around them like it or not. Together, they make sure that upon their arrival, fans shout ‘WE THE PEOPLE!’ Since this is the first time Jack Swagger and Zeb Colter will appear together, it will likely provide an updated look for both the collegiate wrestling WWE Superstar and his grizzled veteran of an uncle.
The Mattel WWE Battle Packs 36 includes:
New Day (Big E & Kofi Kingston)
Seth Rollins & Dean Ambrose
The Outsiders (Scott Hall & Kevin Nash)
Since grooving and singing together on WWE television and praising about the coming of a ‘New Day,’ Big E and Kofi Kingston are brighter and bluer than ever! It’s extremely likely that the Mattel WWE Battle Packs 36 Kofi Kingston and Big E will be dressed in ‘New Day’ attire, possibly including vests and dusters, so fans can build depth for their tag team division.
Dean Ambrose took Seth Rollins’ betrayal of The Shield extremely personally. He’s now a loose cannon and will likely never be the same, with a newfound aggression that he loves to take out on the likes of villainous Superstars like Rollins himself. Though they have been running on separate paths since the breakup of The Shield took place, they will likely one day meet again with explosive results. Fans get that now with the Mattel WWE Battle Packs 36, which should included updated, non-Shield looks for both Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins.
The Outsiders are one of the most legendary villainous tag teams of all time. Scott Hall and Kevin Nash invaded WCW and changed the wrestling world forever as founding members of the nWo. They wore colorful outfits along the way, but there is speculation that their most recent WrestleMania appearance could bring new, updated versions of The Outsiders to the Mattel WWE toy line. If not, it’s likely that Scott Hall will have his iconic red and black vest and gear, and ‘Big Sexy’ Kevin Nash will be sporting a red or black ‘Outsiders’ style getup.

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!

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:
In your Mattel WWE collection, Lana and Rusev own you! The Russian beauty and her beast of a WWE Superstar have taken the WWE Universe by storm. With a striking look being delivered by Lana and immense pain being delivered by Rusev, the sky seems to be the limit for these newcomers hailing from the motherland. A Mattel WWE wrestling figure of both WWE Superstar Rusev and WWE Diva Lana are on the horizon and shining on wrestling figure collectors like a red sun! Whether they are together or separate, both will be sought after by the fans.
Mattel WWE Lana wrestling figure!
Lana wears here incredible ‘well fitted’ suits to the WWE ring week after week and fans are as jaw-dropped by her beauty as they are by her harsh, intense words. Coming in multiple colors, when Lana is released as a Mattel WWE figure her fashionable suits will offer multiple options. She is striking in black, but some may prefer her blue suits or even a ravishing red.
Mattel WWE Rusev wrestling action figure!
Rusev’s intensity and beastly size will more than likely require a new body mold from Mattel to capture his physique perfectly and truly offer a great representation. With huge arms, a giant frame and a no-nonsense wrestling attitude, fans want to grab Rusev to complete their roster of newcomers who have burst on to the WWE scene. His trunks have seldom changed, showing off his huge, muscular thighs and bearing his name in a harsh blue or red and black. His Mattel WWE figure will most likely include his standard outfit. An Elite Rusev could include additional accessories as Rusev begins to grow and add to his arsenal.
Lana and Rusev as Mattel WWE wrestling action figures!
All good, powerful things come in pairs and there is nothing more obviously meant to be paired than Rusev and Lana in a Mattel WWE Battle Pack. Lana’s introduction of Rusev make him a cold, calculated opponent on the way to the ring. For the two of them to be together and immortalized in a Mattel WWE Battle Pack would be a win for fans of the duo…and a win for Mother Russia!

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!
