MachoMania runnin’ wild: Mattel unleashes Randy Savage
Dig it! More Randy Savage merchandise is on the way. A week after THQ revealed the cover of its upcoming WWE All Stars video game featuring the Macho Man, Mattel released images of a new Savage action figure to be released to help promote the release. Unlike his initial Mattel figure (well worth the $23 price tag), Savage this time is featured in his classic gear, circa ’86. It even comes with two different Macho-looking bandanas–oh yeeahhh. The only downside is it’s only being sold as a two-pack with John Morrison.
But take heart, Macho Maniacs: Another Savage figure will be released as part of the Mattel Legends line in March, complete with the classic Macho Man logo T-shirt from the ’80s. Again, this is notable, as Vince McMahon refused to sign off on any Savage-related merchandise for more than a decade. Clearly, wounds have healed, and the chairman wants to do business with the Macho Man. As McMahon used to always crow back in the ’80s, “Anything can happen in the World Wrestling Federation!”
