WWE fans always have one of the best panels of SDCC to look forward to every year, and this return to in-person panels was no different. The team at Mattel are some of the coolest and nicest people working in the toy industry, and they listen to their fans and give them what they want. That is always evident when they have so many reveals of new WWE Elite, Ultimates, Retros, Superstars, and more. Why am I still talking, let's get to the reveals.
WWE Reveals Galore, We Are All Going To Be Broke
The biggest reveal is that there is an Ultimates Cody Rhodes coming, and preorders will run for one full week starting today at noon on Mattel Creations. He comes in what is pictured, including his entrance jacket and special packaging.
