Why does Mattel keep making the same figures? Jun 13, 2019 7:55:15 GMT -5 via mobile PJ, finnbalor1, and 1 more like this

No one said to stop making them. Even if they made them every other series they would always till be easily retainable in stores. Besides, He-Man was a totally different thing than WWE. WWE has hundreds or more wrestlers past and present that everyone wants to see made. And the fact that we get a brand new series every few weeks means they can make more of just about anyone they are allowed to.
I like the idea of series 67 and 69. They seem to be the hottest sellers lately, especially on RSC. Why? Because it's basically a whole new wave of figures many of which we haven't seen yet and everyone's excited for them. Shayna Baszler, Velveteen Dream, Ricochet, Ali, Lashley. And 68 had Mabel, which people are still going crazy for.
You don't see anyone talking about the new 2019 Top Picks at all, though.
Imagine an entire series of figures such as King Mabel? Or even 2 series' with figures such as Haku, Hercules, Hollywood Hogan? It would be one of the biggest sellers to date.
Ringside caters to the niche, hardcore collector audience. As for why every series has at least 1-2 “top guys” it’s because Mattel/WWE/stores want versions of those guys on shelves at all times. Like, to them the fact that people claim that their Wal-Mart always has AJ (or whoever) on the shelf isn’t a bad thing. It’s generally what they’re going for.
