The Edgeheads are just a couple of weeks away.
During this week’s Major Wrestling Figure Podcast, Matt Cardona said that the Ringside Collectibles Exclusive 3-in-1 Edgeheads action figure is one to two weeks away from coming in-stock.
The figure features one figure body and heads for Edge, Curt Hawkins and Zack Ryder.
Meanwhile, some collectors who pre-ordered WWE Legends Elite Series 7 woke up to this message from Target.
I’m not alone in running into issues with Target full-filling a pre-order made many months ago. Although my Razor Ramon and Bobby “The Brain” Heenan figures have shipped and arrived, Greg “The hammer’ Valentine remains in purgatory. The latest delay from Target has pushed the figure’s arrival back to August 21 from an initial ship date of July 29.
Some collectors have reported that Target has canceled their pre-orders. Asked if there are any systems that can be put into place to prevent cancellations from happening on future pre-orders, Mattel WWE marketing manager Steve Ozer wrote on the WrestlingFigs.com forum: “I’m not really sure what else can be done as fulfillment rests with retailers but I’ll of course bring this up and push for improvements.”
Nevertheless, these seem to be popping up in-stores and seem to be readily available.
Also showing up in Target stores is Elite 78, as shared by Good Brother Mike. The series features Randy Orton, Kofi Kingston, Drake Maverick, R-Truth, Naomi, Matt Riddle and “Superstar” Billy Graham.
Speaking of in-stock, WWE Series 111 is now in-stock at Ringside Collectibles. The set features a basic version of Firefly Funhouse Bray Wyatt, as well as Nikki Cross (with a chase variant), Erick Rowan, Kevin Owens and Jeff Hardy.
Some have pointed out that the Kevin Owens Basic head scan may be superior to the upcoming Elite 80 release — although they look very similar to me.
Ringside Collectibles released its latest Top 10 and topping the chart, of course, is the Ringside Exclusive Firefly Funhouse Bray Wyatt Elite action figure, with four puppets (Abby the Witch, Mercy the Buzzard, Vince McMahon and Ramblin’ Rabbit) and Funhouse diorama. Run … to get it.
Finally, Ozer addressed the missing belt studs on the upcoming Survivor Series Elite Kane figure.
“To be transparent, the ask was made well before SDCC but the change wasn’t implemented,” Ozer wrote. “While anything is possible, as we’ve seen with the surprise update of Rocky Johnson’s tattoos, I think the Survivor Series figs are too far along to impact.”
Target will be carrying the Survivor Series Elite line, as well as the WrestleMania Elites in 2021. Walmart typically carries both, but that isn’t “100% confirmed,” Ozer noted. And Ringside Collectibles could be carrying both sets.
