WWE Elite Exclusive, Undertaker (WM28) - Review
At this year's WrestleMania event, the Undertaker increased his unprecedented winning streak to 20-0 setting a record that will more than likely never be broken in the WWE. A testament not only to the phenomenal abilities of the Deadman, but his popularity as a professional wrestling persona for over twenty years.
Today we're looking at his latest WWE Elite figure by Mattel, based on his appearance at WrestleMania 28. Watching the event back in April, I immediately thought "well, there goes Undertaker's next figure!" when he emerged on the stage wearing a creepy hooded robe covered in spikes. I thought it was a sure bet Mattel would deliver that version of Taker.
They did in a way, but something is clearly missing.

WWE Elite 17, Zack Ryder - Review
Zack Ryder's second entry into Mattel's WWE Elite Collection is finally here and this time the "Long Island Iced Z" is carrying gold! Yep, the main Broski comes packaged with his custom "Internet Championship" title belt and it easily ranks as one of the best belt accessories in the line thus far. But does this revised version of Ryder have anything else going for him to make him worth a double-dip?

The Honeypot: HTF Hot Wheels, TFs, Joes & WWE!
This week I hoped to pick-up some hard-to-find figures before the Thanksgiving/Black Friday holiday shopping rush starts next week and I was quite successful! New additions from WWE and Transformers plus I finally found some of those damned Dollar General G.I. Joes!

WWE Elite Flashback, Bret "Hit Man" Hart - Review
There are really two important aspects to any of these WWE exclusives: (1)paint decos and (2)accessories. We rarely see new figure sculpts, although there is the occasional new head scan, but for the most part they reuse a previous release and only focus on a new deco and accessories. The "pink and black attack" version of Hart reuses the "Defining Moments" figure as a base. It does really well in one category, but suffers in the other. Find out which one after the jump!

WWE Elite Flashback, "Macho Man" Randy Savage (nWo) - Review
Today I appreciate WCW and the NWO as an important part of professional wrestling history. If not for the rise of WCW and the "Monday Night Wars", we wouldn't of had such awesome programming in the mid-to-late 1990s and early 2000s. Mattel's already released some prominent WCW-era Superstars and they continue with one of their RSC-exclusive WWE Elite Flashback figures this year, Randy Savage!

WWE Elite Flashback, Kevin Nash - Review
It looks like my assumptions about the state of the Elite series in my area were wrong because last week I saw wave 16 figures all over the place! I'm very happy about that because it means I'm not at the mercy of RSC-pricing for retail figures. Legends fans should be doubly excited about series 16 because it contains two "Flashback" figures. Okay, yeah, they're technically the same guy, but he appears in two must-have versions. I'm talking of course about Kevin Nash and his WWE alter-ego, Diesel. So far I've only found Nash in his WCW-era, New World Order "Outsiders" gear, but it's a great addition to the burgeoning WCW section of the collection. Let's see how he turned out!

WWE Elite Flashback, Stone Cold Steve Austin - Review
But that's not the thing that sold me on this exclusive. No, sir. This version of Austin also includes his trademark "Smoking Skull" championship belt along with the "Attitude" era WWE title. Those two belts were enough to bump this latest Stone Cold figure into the "must-have" category.
