This years Comic-Con @ Home experience will see a WWE Ultimate Edition Sgt. Slaughter Figure that would have been offered at the convention, but is now going to be available at Mattel Creations starting July 22nd, 2021 at 12 PM EST. The Ultimate line features more articulation (0ver 30 points), deco and accessories than the Elites, and this figure is priced at $35.
Sgt. Slaughter is inspired from his appearance from the 1980’s, which along with the 90’s is his most memorable time in professional wrestling. Sgt. Slaughter includes an alternate head portrait, swappable hands, riding crop, his trademark hat, sunglasses, wristle, and jacket that are removable.
A black packaged variant will be randomly sent out over the standard release. You won’t be able to request which one you get, you’ll just have to roll the dice.
Thank you to Mattel and the WWE brand team for providing their SDCC 2021 Exclusive – WWE Ultimate Edition Sgt. Slaughter Figure for an advanced look and review.
Availability: July 2021 – San Diego Comic-Con Exclusive
Sgt. Slaughter is packaged in retro-styled packaging that resembles the 1980’s quite nicely, with an opening box and the figure is placed inside a blister card for safe keeping. The artwork features additional wrestling legends of the 80’s looking outside the, and the blister card packaging has Sgt. Slaughter inside the ring in the uniform that the figure is wearing. The blister card has a sliding back, so you can remove the figure without cutting into the packaging. Underneath Sgt. Slaughter are his accessories, including interchangeable hands, head, riding crop, and the entrance jacket.
Sgt. Slaughter is based on his appearance from the 1980’s, otherwise known as the beginning of the golden age of wrestling. He comes in his classic green tank top with the USA test in the front, black pants with red, white and blue stripes on the sides, dark green boots with black stripes, and yellow and red symbol on the sides. He also has black gloves, red wrist bands, and a white belt that is a separate piece.
His head sculpts features an incredible likeness to Sgt. Slaughter, with nicely done facial details and each given a unique expression. Either one will work with the hat and glasses, which are easily removed. The hat is brown with a black trim around it, along with a yellow symbol in the front, and the glasses are dark grey with black shades. The wristle goes around his neck and is also removable. He also comes with his entrance jacket with the camouflage patterns, and is different than the one that came with Mr. T last year as the patterns are in different places and the shade of green is a little different. There is also a difference in the length of it. The riding crop can be placed in one or both hands, and is made of a soft plastic.
He also includes four sets of interchange hand sculpts, including closed fisted, open grip, open hands and pointy finger.
Comparing him to Macho Man and Mr. T, that are past San Diego Comic-Con exclusives, Sgt. Slaughter fits in quite nicely while keeping this slot open to the legends. The figure fits in perfectly with your growing collection, especially the Elites and Ultimates.
Sgt. Slaughter is fully articulated and includes a ball jointed head, ball jointed torso, ball hinged shoulders, swivel biceps, double-hinged elbows, swivel-hinged wrists, swivel waist, ball jointed hips, swivel thighs, double-hinged knees, swivel boots, hinged and rocker ankles and hinged toes.
Overall, Sgt. Slaughter is an excellent figure with a great attention to detail and overall likeness. Mattel’s WWE team has surely offered a great figure here that Wrestling fans are going to love.
