    I may get that one.
    You are a bold and courageous person, afraid of nothing. High on a hill top near your home, there stands a dilapidated old mansion. Some say the place is haunted, but you don't believe in such myths. One dark and stormy night, a light appears in the topmost window in the tower of the old house. You decide to investigate... and you never return...

    That is a solid win, mixing Mr. T with Fisto and Jitsu!

    Jake "The Snake Man" Roberts is also a nice touch.

    I agree. I'm not a fan of wrestling but I still think these mix ups are clever and Mr. T is going to be a huge seller.

    oh, it's the trifecta of things I don't like or care about but it's mashing three nostalgia buttons at once, it cannot fail.

    Although I'm a huge Mr. T fan and will still buy this figure, this WWE head sculpt by Mattel doesn't quite do him justice. If anything, this sculpt makes Mr. T look older than he did during the 1980s. If you look at the Rocky III Clubber Lang figure from several years ago which was released by NECA, they did a nice job of capturing his likeness (especially on the black trunks reissue). The first NECA edition from around 2012 or so simulated sweat shining from Clubber's face and the reissue from a few years later had more of a non-sweat skin. Mattel ended up releasing several different Hulk Hogan figures (both in Elite and Basic) a few years ago, so hopefully they'll have some variants of Mr. T as well.
