King Kong Bundy slams into MattyCollector on May 21

12:00 PM on 05.14.2012 // Brian Szabelski

The next entry in Mattel's WWE Legends line for 2012 is coming soon, and it's the titanic King Kong Bundy. One of the bigger, meaner heels of the 1980s, King Kong Bundy was 400 pounds of destruction from New Jersey, though for licensing reasons, Mattel is dropping the King Kong part of his in-ring name. For many folks, Bundy's most famous moment was wrestling Hulk Hogan inside a steel cage as one of the three main events for Wrestlemania 2. King Kong Bundy was also known for his finishers, which were basic splashes, but hey ... he's 400 pounds, so it works.

Bundy will be on sale May 21 for US$20 at MattyCollector.The sculpt actually looks good enough that while I wasn't considering getting him before, I am a bit now. Are you going to pick him up? Well, not in the literal sense because you're not Hulk Hogan or Andre the Giant ... but you know what I mean.
