This Week in Wrestling Figures: Sabu Pre-Orders Coming Soon, Cody & Mattel, Super 7 Andre

Sabu Chella Toys Uncensored Pre-Orders Begin May 30

Circle Monday, May 30, on your calendars, E-C-Dub fans. Chella Toys have put that save-the-date on the Uncensored Sabu deluxe action figure.

“Sabu’s new torso articulation includes butterfly-style shoulder joints, a lower abdomen crunch and upper torso joint,” Chella wrote. “Sabu’s sash is covering the ab crunch and will be made out of a flexible plastic to not hinder his movement!”

Sabu will also come with removable headdress and interchangeable hands.

Chella showed off MOC photos of Sabu over the weekend. If the Dynamite Kid pre-orders are any indication of the price, this will likely come out to around $55 shipped in the U.S. In the U.S., Sabu will be available through Figure Collections, J.B. Toys and Asylum Toys. In the U.K., the figure is sold by Wrestling Trader.

If you find yourself saying, great, Sabu. But what about the Dynamite Kid that I ordered about a year ago. Chella has an update on that too.

“We appreciate everyone’s patience on Dynamite Kid Uncensored!” the company wrote. “It has been a real pain having production delayed due to COVID but we are expecting to have them in hand and ready to ship to customers by the end of June.”

So while we’ve yet to see anything close to a finished product of Dynamite, he’s apparently a month or two away.

Chella also offered updates on its retro and Bone Crushing Action figures:

  • Haystacks has shipped from the factory, with Big Daddy not too far behind!
  • Dynamite Kid Retros (both mustache variant & restock of the original) have shipped from our factories.
  • Glow in the Dark Bryan Clark pre-orders will open in June, with more Megastars pre-orders to open soon!
  • Gangrel molds are being developed are looking great!
  • Blue Meanie BCW molds are nearing completion! We’ve had a couple complications with the bone crushing feature that needed to be fixed before releasing the next pre-order!

Cody Rhodes Mattel Figure in the Works

File this under, duh, of course. But Mattel is whipping up Cody Rhodes figures following his WrestleMania return. Cody “broke the news” on his Twitter.

Now show us the art, Cody.

Super 7 Teases Mania 3 Andre

Super 7 is going to make every Andre the Giant figure imaginable and this may be the biggest one yet. WrestleMania III Andre appears to be next up, according to this tease.

Of course, no word on New Japan wave three. It’s not happening, right? Time to give up, right? GIMME MY JAY WHITE!

WWe Elite 96 Lineup Leaked

A leaked lineup for WWE Elite 96 is circulating. Turn away if you don’t want to be spoiled.

We already know that ponytail Brock Lesnar is in the set. Joining him are:

  • Doudrop
  • Hulk Hogan
  • King Shinsuke Nakamura
  • Ilja Dragunov
  • Kofi Kingston

At first glance, not the most thrilling lineup. But maybe once we see which version of Hogan, it’ll change my mind.
