Back in October, news broke that McFarlane Toys were finally doing something that should have been done ages ago: making collectible statues of WWE superstars. The Undertaker was a logical choice for number one, and today, w...

NYCC 2013: Mattel - WWE

The current WWE TV story line might be all about which wrestlers are worthy of being the face of the company, but when you look at Mattel's newest WWE offerings it's pretty clear who the faces really are. The display is prett...

McFarlane Toys takes on The Undertaker for new WWE Statue

For the past week or so, WWE has been sending out cryptic tweets, teasing the return of the Undertaker to action. Dirtsheets ran with it and fell flat as the teases were not a ring return for the Deadman, but Todd McFarlane c...

Earlier, we gave you a peek at Mattel's upcoming WWE figures for 2012 and 2013. Of course, that wasn't the only news: with a panel during San Diego Comic Con, there were bound to be a few surprises in store, and the panel sure delivered on that!

Unfortunately, due to some mishaps with seating, we missed the beginning part of the panel but did get a seat in the room. Thankfully, Mattel was also kind enough to have the painted decos of most of their announcements on hand at the booth. Hit the jump and I'll give you guys a quick rundown of what was at the panel!

King Kong Bundy slams into MattyCollector on May 21 photo
King Kong Bundy slams into MattyCollector on May 21
by 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.

Show & Tell: WWE Wrestlemania XXVIII Bear photo
Show & Tell: WWE Wrestlemania XXVIII Bear
by Rio McCarthy

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 the things I picked up on my trip was the Wrestlemania XXVIII Collectible Bear.

You may be saying, "Is this the nineties?" Well, no, but he is kind of Beanie Baby-esque! Hit the jump to see what kind of adventures this bear's been on!

BANG! Mattel's Diamond Dallas Page figure on sale Monday photo
BANG! Mattel's Diamond Dallas Page figure on sale Monday
by Brian Szabelski

I haven't bought anything from MattyCollector to date ... but that changes next week. Why? Because next week, the newest WWE Legends figure goes up for sale, and it's the master of the Diamond Cutter, one of my favorite wrestlers growing up ... Diamond Dallas Page! What's great is that this is mid-1990s WCW DDP, when he was at his best, complete with the removable DDP jacket, the long hair and the old-school tights. My only disappointment? He doesn't come with a second set of hands so you can make the diamond symbol (you know, the one Jay-Z ripped off).

DDP is going to be at MattyCollector on Monday, April 2, at noon Eastern (9 a.m. Pacific) for US$20 each. Is there anyone else who's going to pick one up and relive a part of their past? And as a side note: the next Legends release will be May 21, featuring the monstrous King Kong Bundy!
