Thanks to the internet, the world of pro-wrestling has gone through a bit of a resurgence the past few years. While WWE is still on the top of the mountain, fans can find pretty much anything that fits their particular tastes, but even with so many options, many old-school fans agree the greatest time period in wrestling was arguably the “Attitude Era” during the late ’90s. The then-WWF took a more “shock-value” approach to its storylines, and while it had both hits and misses, its influence cannot be denied. Thanks to Tamashii Nations, Bandai’s collectible brand, you can relive that age of wrestling with the release of two figures representing its peak, Stone Cold Steve Austin and the Rock.
Revealed on Tamashii’s Twitter page, these two figures will be released in December of 2016, hopefully just in time for Christmas. These fully articulated rivals look great and give fans the opportunity to recreate some of their classic poses. The Stone Cold figure comes with different head sculpts so he can either run his mouth or stare you down. If you want to have your own beer bash, he also comes with two cans of beer and splash effects. Oh, and from the looks of his vest, this will be the first Austin figure that has “Whoop-Ass” adorned on it. That already makes it a definite purchase for fans of the “Texas Rattlesnake.”
The Rock also comes with different head sculpts as well. When it comes to talking skills, not very many people can top “The People’s Champ,” so of course, he comes with his own microphone.
The two icons will be part of the S.H. Figuarts line, so it’s not surprising how great they look. If you were a fan of this insane era of wrestling, these figures are must-haves for your collection. You can pre-order both figures on S.H. Figuarts website here.
So what do you think? Are you excited to get this figures in December? What other WWE superstars should get this type of treatment? Let me know on Twitter or let us smell what you’re cooking in the comments below.
