Mattel WWE Elite Series 44 Prototype Images

WrestlingFigs.com has released prototype images of Mattel's WWE Elite Series 44.  There are some interesting figures here, but none that I will be purchasing as I am really trying to narrow down my purchases a good bit.
  1. Big E
  2. Braun Strowman
  3. "Macho Man" Randy Savage
  4. Sasha Banks
  5. Sin Cara
  6. Tugboat
The most anticipated figure is also the most controversial and it is the first Elite Sasha Banks.  The face is a bit of a mess and Wrestling Figs even released the prototype image with her wearing her sunglasses.  I assume that was done in order to disguise that face.  It sounds like the head sculpt may not be the final one according to Bill, Mattel's Lead Designer.  Check out Sasha's take on the figure right here...LOL.

The rest of the figures are fine.  I tend to agree with the idea that the Braun Strowman figure actually looks cooler than he does.  That figure is the closest to a must-buy for me as I already have Bray, Luke, and Erick.

I will be passing on the rest of the series however.

Here's the link to the pics again.  Check them out and let me know what you think.
