WWE fans: you only have until Midnight EST to back the Mattel Creations New Generation ring to get the Macho Man Early Bird bundle included. Announced a couple of weeks ago as the first WWE crowdfunding project from Mattel, the amazing playset is trying to get over the 5,000 piece hump and get across the finish line. The last few days have seen a flurry of backers get in to get the Macho Man Early Bird bundle. So, what does that entail? Until midnight, if you back the project, not only will you get the New Generation light up entrance, real scale New Gen ring, and Ultimate Diesel figure, but you will get a Wrestlemania 10 Macho Man Ultimate figure, headsets, mics, an announce table, and blue chairs.

Honestly, there has been some crazy discourse about this thing. People bullying each other into backing, people hoping for its failure, all sorts of dumb stuff. At the end of the day, though, this is a fantastic product that wrestling fans should be salivating over. You do what you want with your money, of course, but for this ring, this entrance, and at least two Ultimate figures when you factor in Macho Man, with the possibility of a third with Doink if they get to 7,000, this is a no-brainer.
Go here to check out all the details and to back the ring. Remember: you only have till midnight to get Macho Man included!
