Figures: Mattel WWE Elite Series 16

Mattel has been "doing work" since they obtained the WWE license.  Elite Series 16 is one of the best lineups they've had in a long time too.

The crown jewel of this line is CM Punk with his original "Best in the World" shirt.  It also includes the following WWE Superstars and Legends.
  • Ezekiel Jackson
  • Heath Slater
  • The Rock
  • Randy Orton (w/ beard)
  • Diesel
  • Kevin Nash
 I have not seen the Kevin Nash figure yet.  Unfortunately, it sounds like it will not be an nWo version.  That's a fortunate thing for my wallet though as I probably will pass on WWE or WCW Kevin Nash if he is not in nWo, Wolfpac or Outsiders gear.

The whole line looks solid and I may pick up three different figures from it.  That hasn't happened since I purchased both Road Warriors and "Stone Cold" Steven Austin from Mattel's WWE Legends Series 1.

Can't wait to get my hands on some of these.
