Make way for the hometown heroes coming back where they belong, the Mattel WWE Series 40 wrestling action figures have been announced! With flavor based on a famous Superstar’s love for where they come from, the lineup features a vast array of talent. Mattel WWE Series 40 includes:
- CM Punk (Chicago)
- Alberto Del Rio (Mexico)
- Rey Mysterio (San Diego)
- Great Khali (India)
- Zack Ryder (Long Island)
- Edge (Toronto)
CM Punk is missing and no one knows if, or when, he will ever return to the WWE so his release in a Mattel WWE set is surprising. It may be one of his last Mattel WWE action figures ever, so it’s great to keep an eye out as to what attire it could feature, especially in tribute to his hometown (and the place he probably is right now) Chicago.
Alberto Del Rio is an aristocrat from Mexico who is rich and powerful and the people from his home country know it. His figure will no doubt feature a smile with how happy he is to carry that type of wealth, or a spoiled, angry demeanor fit for a rich jerk.
Rey Mysterio has long claimed San Diego as his home, dialing up the 619 as a move and featuring it on all of his ring attire. He will be masked, for sure, but it is a curiosity as to which of his many colorful looks represents San Diego best.
One of the most recognizable faces in all of India, The Great Khali is the Punjabi Playboy both at home and abroad. With WWE, he has worn black ring pants and maroon ring pants, the latter of which he has worn for years and will most likely be featured in here.
Zack Ryder loves Long Island and Long Island loves Zack Ryder, as is proof any time he comes into town with the WWE. Getting more praise at times than The Rock while in New York, Zack Ryder holds up the LI on the way to the ring regularly and proves he is a hometown hero.
A career cut too short, but luckily with the health of the Rated R Superstar still in tact, no city loves a Superstar like Toronto loves Edge. Even with John Cena at his heels, Edge is always massively cheered by the Toronto fans and always was during his storied career. If only it could have lasted just a little longer!

Time and time again, Rey Mysterio is released in a new, colorful attire in the Mattel WWE line. To older collectors this is sometimes frustrating but to many fans of the Lucha Libre legend, this is too good to be true. With more Mattel WWE figures than almost any other WWE Superstar, Rey Mysterio is prominently featured. Here are a few of his current, most popular (and colorful) favorites:
In Mattel WWE Elite 24, Rey Mysterio sports a skeletal, gothic and Halloween style theme that’s sure to make Jack Skellington blush. Including Elite articulation, this elaborate design based on Mexican folklore suits Rey Mysterio perfectly.
Facing off with a youngster like Kofi Kingston is a piece of cake for the veteran Rey Mysterio. His love for comic book characters and superheroes shines through in Mattel WWE Battle Packs 23, as his ring attire resembles the caped crusader, Batman. Still sporting his unique Rey Mysterio scheme and style, Rey pays tribute to Bruce Wayne’s alter ego by suiting up with ears and even a cape.
One of the first released Mattel WWE Rey Mysterio figures, this Entrance Greats piece includes an elaborate head dress based on Rey’s Aztec entrance attire from WrestleMania XXII! Now harder to find but still a classic, this figure shows just how over the top Rey Mysterio’s entrance gear can get, and just how detailed his look always is!
Not only is it the first Mattel WWE Ringside Collectibles Exclusive, this Rey Mysterio further celebrates the master of the 619’s love for comic book super heroes! Dressed in an attire inspired by The Flash of DC Comics, Rey Mysterio is no stranger to high speeds and dangerous situations. As unique as Rey Mysterio can get, this figure embodies all of his creativity.
