WWE Figures – Complete buying guide

We detail the current WWE Figures available by category with a short description of each action figure assortment.

Since January 2010, Mattel have held the master toy licence to manufacture WWE Figures. This gives them the rights to produce all available WWE Superstars that they wish, subject to approval.

WWE Figures by Mattel are produced in a 7-inch scale, depending on the actual height of the wrestlers, they may be slightly shorter or taller. Some may include accessories such as WWE title belts. This was a key difference introduced in 2010, previously no other WWE toy manufacturer produced realistically with the wrestlers actual height.

Each series, also known as an assortment is usually numbered, for example Elite Collection Series #65. The series contains usually 6 different characters in the series for Elites and each is usually released every 2 months. Basic figures which now contain 5 wrestlers are released every month.

From 2019, Mattel have made two changes that effect most of the figures produced. The face scanning technology has been improved across all figures and in the Elite line, additional hands are included with the male wrestlers which can be changed to hold items or for an entrance pose.

These include Funko POP Vinyls, Jada Toys Metals, Playmates Turtles, Bandai Tamashii Nations and real scale rings from Wicked Cool Toys. The latter two were subsequently stopped when Mattel decided to produce their own versions.

Prices on WWE action figures.

Prices can vary widely depending on many factors associated in any collector orientated business. Rare or exclusive figures can cost more generally to source and are brought in usually just so that they can be offered. Some may cost less or more than others even in the same series, however usually the prices are balanced overall. From time to time, sales could be found on selected figures.
