Mattel Unveils WWE Legends Line

It was inevitable, given all the success that Jakks Pacific had with its classic line (that will continue in a non-WWE capacity as "Legends of the Ring"), for Mattel to bust out some of the classic stars of yesteryear, even though they refused to comment until now. At a Toy Fair fan event in New York, they revealed prototypes and images of the first series, which will feature the much-requested Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat, Road Warriors Hawk and Animal, Steve Austin with vest and leg-braces, polka-dotted Dusty Rhodes, Sgt. Slaughter, and a Million Dollar Man with removable tuxedo.

All the legends appear to have the extra articulation of the "Elite" style figures, though Million Dollar Man is part of the "Entrance Greats" line that has standard articulation. But on the plus side, he'll come with a base that sings "Money, Money, Money!"

Enough talk. The pictures, along with images of previously released figures, can be found by CLICKING HERE.
