'80s Icon Mr. T Gets WWE Elite Collection Figure For Comic-Con At Home
The Comic-Con At Home exclusive WWE Mr. T Elite Collection Mattel action figure has been revealed.
While Comic-Con was cancelled this year, there will be a virtual event in late July called Comic-Con At Home. There have been few announcements for the event so far, but now, Mattel has revealed one of its exclusive WWE figures for the event.
The gold-chain-wearing, fool-pitying Mr. T is the latest person to join the WWE Elite Collection line from Mattel. Like all of Mattel's SDCC exclusives, the figure comes in some fantastic packaging. You can check out said packaging along with the figure below.
The figure stands six-inches tall with deluxe articulation. It features Mr. T in his ring gear and comes with his signature gold chains and camouflage jacket. It costs $30 and is now available for pre-order at Entertainment Earth. However, there are limited quantities of this figure.
While Mr. T was a film and TV star--appearing on The A Team and in Rocky II--he was a major part of WWE (then WWF) during the '80s. He teamed with Hulk Hogan, defeating Paul Orndorff and Roddy Piper at Wrestlemania I. He had a boxing match with Piper at Wrestlemania II the following year. In 2014, he was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame Celebrity Wing.
