WWE Elite, Undertaker (Series 8) - Review

It's not hard to understand why some Superstars receive more figures than others in Mattel's WWE toy lines. Characters like Rey Mysterio and the Undertaker are popular with kids and adult collectors alike. Today we're taking a look at Taker's third entry in the Elite Collection.

The Buzz: SDCC & Upcoming Toys

Well, San Diego Comic-Con 2011 came and went with plenty of new stuff shown off. There are lots of pictures and videos floating around the net, so if you haven't had time to surf around, I recommend checking out the following sites: Tow News International, Action Figure Insider, Transformers World, It's All True and the usual news sites listed on the lower right side of the page.

My thoughts on upcoming items for the lines most often showcased on the Hive after the jump!

WWE Elite Exclusive, CM Punk (SES) - Review

CM Punk may have left the WWE after last week's "Money in the Bank" pay-per-view, but he went out on top, defeating John Cena for the WWE Title in the main event. I wasn't able to watch, but I followed the play-by-play online and being that the show took place in Chicago (Punk's hometown), the atmosphere was electrifying. Today, I'm taking a look at the much-anticipated masked Punk figure from Ringside Collectibles.

Green Lantern Classics, Despotellis - Review

Hey all, it's Novelty from Toy a Day, and I'm doing another guest review on this great site.  It's been a while since I've done a guest review here, but 3B has this open door policy where I'm always welcomed it seems.  Anyways, I don't have an insect themed figure to review today, but I do have something yellow from the Sinestro Corps.  Yup, Swarm to read more.

WWE Elite, Edge (Series 8) - Review

Spear! The R-Rated Superstar returns to the Elite Collection in what is most likely his last figure in the wrestling collector line. While Elite series 9 is hitting stores like Toys R Us, I have yet to see any series 8 figures at retail. I had to order this figure from last month. It's the first Edge figure I purchase from Mattel's Elite Collection line, was he worth the wait and does he live up to the legacy of this now-retired WWE Superstar? Let's find out!

WWE Legends, Terry Funk - Review

Not considering the soon-to-hit WWE Legends series 6, I've collected all of the Mattel lines legends except for three: Kamala, Paul Orndorff and George Steele. I do plan to eventually purchase those guys, but in the meantime I'm trying to review everything else. I've reviewed most of my Legends stuff, but starting today, I'm making a big push to get everything reviewed and hopefully construct some sort of checklist page. Today, we're taking a look at a legend from series 2, Terry Funk!

WWE Legends, "Macho Man" Randy Savage - Review

"Oh yeaaaahhh!" Any pro-wrestling fan worth their salt knows who "Macho Man" Randy Savage was! Whether playing the role of beloved face or nefarious heel, he was a consummate entertainer. His classic match ups against the likes of Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat and Ultimate Warrior are the stuff of legends. Macho Man was truly one of the greats and today we're taking a look at his first WWE Legends figure by Mattel. A figure I'm sure will be highly sought after as a tribute to an icon.
