Mattel WWE Elite Series 70 And 71

Totally neglected to take a look at Elite 70, and didn't realize that until Elite 71 pics dropped yesterday. Let's take a look at both right now!

Pics of the figs are available via the links above the lists from Ringside Collectibles.

  • EC3 
  • Dolph Ziggler
  • Finn Balor (Demon King)
  • Johnny Gargano
  • Seth Rollins (Shield's Last Ride)
  • Vince McMahon
All are nice figs, but Shield's Last Ride Rollins with IC Title is the only one I will be purchasing. The classic Vince McMahon is an amazing figure though.

  • Adam Cole (They are making a running change to the NXT North American Title's color)
  • Big Show
  • Drew McIntyre
  • Jeff Hardy
  • John Cena
  • Nikki Bella (There's a chase version as well)
The only Must Buy in this series for me is Drew McIntyre. I passed on the NXT one because I preferred to get him in main roster packaging, the swappable heads, and Raw Tag Team Title is a nice bonus.

Big Show is my second favorite of this series, and he's firmly in the "If I see him on discount some day, I'll probably pick him up" category. Great looking WWE Title with that fig.

The rest are great figs (I'm glad we've documented John Cena's weird hair era or the Weird Haira Cena as I just now decided to call it.), but none are all that tempting aside from one other.

I like belts so the Adam Cole is somewhat tempting just for that belt, but I may wait to see if I can get a Velveteen Dream with that same title at some point.

Mattel continues to do good work, I love their figs.
