Tamashii Nations S.H. Figuarts line has jumped into non-Japanese licenses with Marvel, DC and Star Wars, but those aren’t the only ones. On top of video games like Street Fighter and cartoons like the classic Turtles, they also are doing WWF WWE wrestling figures. Now, one thing Mattel has done well over the years in the boys figure space is wrestling, so it’s hard to jump in and convince folks they need a 50 dollar version of superstars they probably already have. That being said, I don’t have many Mattel figs but do dig classic wrestling. I’m a kid of the 80s so of course I was around for Hogan and the rise of the WWF. In my college years, I rode the Attitude Era and watched Stone Cold, The Rock, and Triple H re-invent what wrestling could be. These figures are based on that time, giving us Attitude versions of them along with Kane and Undertaker. Five in all at the moment.
We’ve done a massive catch up shoot, showing off all 5 and what they can do. Over 210 images. Read on to check out some additional thoughts and all the glorious pics including a tag match between The Rock and Stone Cold vs Undertaker and Triple H!
