Mattel – Masters Of The WWE Universe Wave 2 – Roman Reigns, “Macho Man” Randy Savage, Rey Mysterio & John Cena Figures Review

 

Mattel’s popular Masters Of The WWE Universe figures that are exclusively available at Wal-Mart Stores continue with this new wave of figures. This line-up includes Roman Reigns, “Macho Man” Randy Savage, Rey Mysterio and John Cena, and these figures all pay homages to Masters of the Universe characters. Roman Reigns fist pays homage to Fisto, “Macho Man” Randy Savage’s armor pays homage to Battle Armor He-Man, Rey Mysterio’s wings pay homage to Stratos, and John Cena’s chest and skin color pays homage to Faker. A third wave was confirmed back at Power-Con 2019, and there could very well be additional waves that are on the horizon.

This years New York ToyFair, Mattel had shown off some previously announced Masters of the Universe Origins figures, MOTU Mini’s, and some new Mega Construx sets that all look amazing. Unfortunately, more waves of the Masters of the WWE Universe were not shown, and we could very well have to wait until San Diego Comic-Con or even Power-Con to learn more about the line.

Each figure can also break apart at the shoulders and hips, and what we learned is that the head is also easy to pop off to create a custom look for each character. Most of the figures this line, and Masters of the Universe Origins have compatible and interchangeable parts, including their bodies and accessories.

Overall, Mattel’s Masters of the WWE Universe is a great line that works great for both Masters of the Universe and WWE. The characters and sculpts work well together and we love how the parts can be interchangeable. This second wave is a great addition the line and each one of these figures have homage to Masters of the Universe characters, which not all figures in this line will offer. This is a great line and definitely what the fans have been waiting for.
