Hey guys! It’s great to be back in the ‘Zone reporting wrestling figure news once again!

Last weekend we saw several new wrestling figures revealed by Mattel at the annual Ringside Fest hosted by RingsideCollectibles.com! You can always Save 10% on there by the way with discount code MBG to save you some dough! You can also check out a full gallery of a number of the figures revealed last weekend at the bottom of this article.

That being said there were several new faces, and multiple faces at that, shown there at Ringside Fest 2018. We got to see the first official Elite Nia Jax figure that comes with multiple swappable heads, one with straight hair, one with braided hair and another with curly hair, giving you several display options. I’m sure some people may end up even buying three to display all the versions at the same time!

Not to mention we saw the first ever Elite Eric Young in Sanity attire, as well as an early prototype of Shayna Baszler and Velveteen Dream, which are both highly anticipated! Some other surprises included some of the new “Chase” Basic wrestling figures, such as a variant Dean Ambrose and Macho Man in alternate attires being limited to one per case, not to mention Ronda Rousey’s very first Elite figure based on her contract signing! We also saw a Braun Strowman with a destructible car, a “Chase” Elite Aiden English in alternate attires, the GameStop Exclusive Elite RetroFest Ric Flair as well as the Walmart Exclusive one per case Sherri Martel. And lastly we saw the new 12″ value action figures featuring the first Gran Metalik figure as well as an updated Elimination Chamber playset that is exclusive to online retailers in early 2019!

There were several other figures shown, which you can see below in the gallery with this article. Most will probably be up for pre-order on RingsideCollectibles.com in the coming weeks so be sure to keep an eye out for that so you don’t miss out on some of these figures, especially the Chase Elites and Basics!

Here’s a walkthrough of what was shown with one of the Mattel designers on hand at Ringside Fest 2018 courtesy of Ringside Collectibles:
