A little bit of something for fans of all ages

SDCC 2014: Mattel's WWE Panel

Jul 25 // Brian Szabelski
The WWE brought out its big guns for this year's panel, featuring the injured Daniel Bryan, Paul Heyman and Hulk Hogan, with Michael Cole hosting. So pretty much, if you were a wrestling fan at SDCC, this was where you wanted to be on Thursday morning, even if you weren't a big figure collector. Mattel's own announcements were pretty quick but featured a lot of new stuff to go over, including two-figure Battle Sets of the New Age Outlaws; Daniel Bryan vs. Triple H; mid-90s HBK vs. 2014 Undertaker; and Big Show vs. Andre the Giant.  The NXT fans out there will be happy to know that NXT's stars will be beginning to get figures, with Sami Zayn as the first out of the gate. He'll be part of the regular Superstars line, alongside Rusev (and Lana, too), El Torito, Eva Marie, Adam Rose, and Bo Dallas. Not going to lie, the Sami Zayn news was pretty exciting, and I'm looking forward to Bo's figure as well. The WWE Elite line will add in at least six more figures: Bluetista (a.k.a. Best Batista), Roma Reigns, and Cesaro with his Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royale trophy, X-Pac with the European Championship (and there was much rejoicing ... somewhere), Junkyard Dog, and the debut of Doink. Or rather, all three different Doinks; you'll get the three different heads, each with its different hairstyle. The Defining Moments line is returning, with three new figures announced for that series. Two of them will be Wrestlemania III Hulk Hogan (and the original WWE World Heavyweight Championship belt) and Razor Ramon. Oh, and this man called Sting crashed the party at the end, just after Mattel announced they'd be making a figure of him for the first time as the third Defining Moments entry. It's also technically Sting's first appearance as part of the WWE family, WWE 2K15 commercial not counting. Needless to say, the place went a little unglued when he actually showed up in his Crow Sting facepaint and attire, and it seemed like such a perfect surprise to throw at the end of an already entertaining panel. Bet the people who left during the Q&A session in the middle are kicking themselves now, aren't they?

SDCC 2012: Mattel's WWE figures panel

Jul 17 // Brian Szabelski
Among the prototypes announced (in unpainted deco form) were Ryback, Damien Sandow and Tensai in the WWE Superstars line. Also coming to the WWE Superstars line is Bork Laser Brock Lesnar, who has one of the biggest sculpts in the line to make him look properly intimidating. For the two-figure Battle Packs, Primo and Epico will be coming with their tag title belts (no Rosa, though ... sorry), along with Brodus Clay and Curt Hawkins. Yes, Hawkins will have his awesome cane. As for the WWE Legends line, you have both members of the Brainbusters, Arn Anderson (on sale now) and Tully Blanchard (on sale in September), along with a welcome surprise in Miss Elizabeth. In the Elite series collection, Kofi Kingston will be available, wearing an outfit that's colored in a way that's a bit of an homage to He-Man, as well as ... Kelly Kelly. She comes with the Divas title. The Flashback figure for Series 17 will be Makind in his post-Corporation look. Series 18 will bring us Brodus Clay in his track suit and Jerry "The King" Lawler, with Series 19 giving us Shawn Michaels during his European Title reign Dolph Ziggler. And yes, that Dolph comes with his (in)famous butt cape. After the announcements, Mattel brought out this year's three panelists: CM Punk (who didn't crash the panel this year), Zack Ryder and Sheamus. All three were actually great choices, and during the Q & A session, we got a peek at two more figures: Zack Ryder with his Internet Championship, and the first figure of the one and only AJ, seen above.  And yes, like last year, there was an interruption at the end of the panel. This year, it was Alberto Del Rio, accompanied by Ricardo Rodriguez, who proceeded to cut a promo hyping his and Sheamus' then-upcoming match at Money in the Bank. This included Alberto making fun of all the "nerds" in the room and producing a purported copy of Action Comics #1, which he decided to be generous with and give to everyone by tearing it up. You can watch the full exchange here. In the meanwhile, check out the gallery for some additional photos and let us know if you find anything you like!

Show & Tell: WWE Wrestlemania XXVIII Bear

Apr 20 // Rio McCarthy
There he is! Here we see the Wrestlemania XXVIII Collectible Bear, which I will from now on lovingly just refer to as 'Bear', in all his glory. First off I'll gush about how I love the colors! They made the great decision to use the Miami Dolphin colors for a lot of the Wrestlemania gear since it was held in Miami, and I couldn't be happier. Doesn't he look at home catching those rays? Well, I guess he's feeling like he did back in Miami! Alright so I'll be totally honest. I actually got this guy at Wrestlemania Axxess when we went so that I wouldn't have to carry everything around at 'Mania. As you can see there is a ton of embroidery on this little bear. His right arm has John Cena's name on it... ...while his left arm has The Rock's name! If somehow you hadn't had to hear about it on nearly every news outlet, yes, The Rock vs. John Cena was the main event of this year's Wrestlemania. Not going to lie, I was happy with the outcome of that match. Moving on down to his little foot you can see some more embroidery there. The WWE logo is proudly displayed, and actually all the embroidered bits look very nice! Especially considering this bear only cost $10. Oh well look at that! Yes, Bear! You were at Wrestlemania XXVIII and so was I! So was this shirt! I mean, that's totally not a shirt. On the topic of shirts, even if Bear doesn't have his name on him, he still happens to be a CM Punk fan! As were the people I went with, including Tomopop's very own Andres Cerrato, and his amazing wife, Candice! We all wore this shirt to 'Mania to celebrate. Look at his cute little face! Of all the merchandise swag the WWE loves to drop at events like that, he was definitely the cutest. His eyes and nose are like hard plastic beads sewn in, while the rest of his actual 'fur' is pretty soft. Of course the embroidery is a bit rough, but well.. it's embroidery. If you couldn't tell from the shot of the shirt earlier, Wrestlemania took place on April 1st, 2012 in Miami, Florida. How about that! If you hadn't guessed from the shots earlier, the rest of the Wrestlemania XXVIII logo continues on his back side. We'll take a quick peek at the tags on this little guy since we're here. Obviously you see the same information on the front of the tag that we've see on the bear itself. Now the more interesting part is that while it is called a 'Collectible Bear' it is actually a limited edition item as well. It doesn't just have that word 'Collectible' thrown on it for no reason! My bear happens to be #582 out of 3,500, and I'm assuming they must have sold out because I didn't see any online at WWE Shop like some of the other items. Ok, so the fact that the company is named Forever Collectibles makes me really happy for some reason. Maybe that's a weird, sappy, girl thing. You know, I really like it when they tell me what my stuff is made out of. I think this is one of the first plush-type things I've come across personally that actually had it all flat out written for you. Pretty cool, WWE! As you can tell, this was the perfect souvenir for me to bring home from my trip, along with all the photos, and memories, of hanging out with some awesome friends. Even though they didn't get to come to Wrestlemania with us, I did get to hang out with Pedro and Kristina as well, so it was a big ol' happy Tomo-party! This was a trip I won't soon forget. See you again soon, friends!

What's an amazing way to spend a week and a half? Go to Miami, hit up Wrestlemania, and hang out with some amazing Tomo-friends! That's what I did for the end of March/beginning of April and I had an incredible time. One of t...
