I will be disappointed if they don't show Noam Dar, Lince Dorado, Gran Metalik figures and new retros. I would like to see an updated Jack Gallagher, a Gulak elite and a battle pack of Tozawa and Kendrick but would be surprised to see them. A 205 Live ring would be nice too.
Of the figures shown last year, 7 have not been released. - Asuka (Possibly still coming) - Natty (Possibly still coming) - Rod Strong NXT (Supposed to be released) - Titus NXT (Supposed to be released) - Andrade (Confirmed) - Hideo (Cancelled) - Ultimate Deletion (Cancelled)
Posts suggesting that a huge portion of what we see this weekend won’t see the light of day are unwarranted. Will a few get lost in the shuffle? Certainly. But that’s not worth going into the weekend with a “sky is falling” attitude.
When was Rated R Lita and Wendi richter shown? Before last years SDCC? Elite Naomi, Ellering, Basic Billie Kay, Basic Rodrick Strong and on and on. It’s not like this is just pulled out of thin air. It’s a legit problem for Mattel

the lack of hype is because people stop caring.. and stopped collecting. or slowed down greatly. Espec when retail stores just aren't keeping there end of the deal stocking figures. Online only goes so far...espec when stuff sells out. And the cancellations are just another big elephant in the room for people. I wanna see some new stuff , but only if we are gonna get it to retail.. I think they need to seriously consider this before showing anything there even 50/50 on..
