It was 35 years ago that Mr. T jumped from The A-Team to the tag team to join the World Wrestling Federation (WWF) as Hulk Hogan’s Main Event partner for Wrestlemania I.

While the world has changed since then (WWF is now WWE), the badassery of Mr. T has not, and for the very first time, the legendary personality is joining Mattel’s WWE Elite Collection. Intended to be an exclusive for Comic-Con International: San Diego (SDCC), this epic action figure is inspired by Mr. T’s first appearance in the ring. Available exclusively through Entertainment Earth while supplies last, Mr. T includes realistic detailing and ring gear and comes packed in a retro-styled box with archival photos and artwork.

The 6-inch scale WWE Mr. T Elite Collection Action Figure – 2020 Convention Exclusive follows last year’s SDCC exclusive Randy “Macho Man” Savage figure that quickly sold out and has become a hot item on the secondary market. What we’re saying is that if you think you might want Mr. T in your collection, you should get your order in right away.

They say that this mighty figure is designed for fans ages 8 and up, but let’s be honest here — most of us that will buy this thing are on the “way UP” side of things!
