Yessss!!!! The Q&A!
My question got asked this year about 70s era wrestlers getting made! Unfortunetely I was hoping for better news, however I do think Bill will do his best for some of the big names from that era, Superstar Billy Graham, Bob Backlund and hopefully Bruiser Brody!
Cant wait for 2018, some great releases coming up, Bill has me excited for all the Jeff Hardy variants.
A point about the Rhyno figure, its not just his arms that were way off, his hair sculpt was very unnatural looking, they need to fix that for future releases.
All in all Im very pleased, I just wish so badly we could get more names form the 70s but Bill brought up good points about wrestling really exploding from the mid 80s onwards and so I understand.
Pitty Bill didnt get asked about the rock n roll express and when we can expect to see them.
Great to hear the retros and NXT lines sold so well!
Great job MDT with all the figures, Mattel WWE figures will go down as the best line in history because they care about things such as scale and tattoos basically every little detail and thats what makes them head and shoulders above the rest!

Here's what i took away:
HOF line continues - yay Mean Gene is still up in the air with no slot yet Bill was surprised by reaction to Virgil... Bill, it's not Virgil per se, but any first time in the line from the mid 80s to early 90s!!
BRING ON GREG VALENTINE, DYNAMITE KID, HARLEY RACE, HERCULES, HAKU, BOB BACKLUND, ZEUS... and while your'e at it... NEW VOLKOFF AND JIMMY SNUKA!!!
That's the best q&a that I can remember. Ringside asked some more in depth questions compared to previous years, and I felt like Bill was pretty detailed in his answers. There was some good news for collectors like myself who didn't see a lot that fit in their collection at sdcc.
Probably my favorite Q&A because of the production and "why" questioned that were asked, and well answered by Bill.
In the future though, they have to adjust the questions after the reveals. Don't ask about seeing the cruiserweights when there are 3-4 behind you in the display.
I like that Bill confirmed Dude Love and, basically confirmed, Big Shows closed fist. He has been hesitant to do that kind of stuff in the past. Great job Bill! (now get to work on my Candice Michelle )
A little disappointed with the answer he gave for part selection, as it doesn't explain the molding of a new kickpad that is incorrect for everyone, and then using said kickpad design on NXT Rollins and the next Elite KO, but overall I enjoyed the Q&A.
