Perhaps the most inspired wrestling figure ever comes to San Diego Comic Con this year courtesy of Mattel. What is it, you ask? It’s Randy “Macho Man” Savage hawking Slim Jims. That’s right. Sports Illustrated reports that Mattel will be releasing an action figure of Randy Savage from his classic 90’s television ad campaign urging viewers to “Snap into a Slim Jim!” The figure even comes packed in a replica Slim Jim container.
The Macho Man figure itself comes in the classic Slim Jim orange and yellow outfit he wore in the commercials, and holds a pack of Slim Jims in each hand. The figure’s “Snap into it!” jacket is removable, as are the Slim Jim packs, so that Randy can get down to wrasslin’.
If you’re attending SDCC, Mattel is offering a presale on Monday, June 17. This presale is only for SDCC attendees. Like last year, you’ll need to check-in at the Mattel booth during the convention and then the company will ship the figure to your address after the convention.
For those of you not attending SDCC but wanting to snap into this figure, you’re not out of luck. Entertainment Earth is sharing in this exclusive. Preorders start on Tuesday, June 18 at 12 noon EST on Entertainment Earth’s website.
