New Generation Arena Shipping Now; Fig Night Unboxing
The wait for the WWE Ultimate New Generation Arena is almost over. Or it is over if you’re one of the lucky ones like the Turnbuckle Tavern’s Fig Night crew. Mattel has begun shipping the New Gen Arena to those who backed the crowd-funded project (I’m still waiting to get my shipping notice).
So expect a lot more unboxings and photos to hit the ‘Gram and Twitter this week.
And just a reminder, the early bird “Macho Man” Randy Savage announcer set is shipping separately.
