Seeing as this was an event that you paid to attend, you are to get exactly what you paid for. I believe everyone did, as I heard no complaints at the event nor have I seen any in the little feedback that I've come across on the internet since. Crowd control got a bit out of hand near the middle of the event, but that can happen at any appearance and was ultimately remedied.
Is this behavior that someone in the company told her to follow? It must not apply to the champion or various other stars under contact who have signed similar items over the years. Does she understand that the Weston publications often use WWE-licensed photos nowadays? For someone who claims to be a lifelong fan of the business, she certainly doesn't seem to understand that a magazine cover is an extremely high honor. One of the same magazines that someone she claims to have looked up to, Miss Elizabeth, often graced herself.
I'm not spiteful. I'm not mad. I just hope to get a point across. Miss Lee may or may not ever see this. Based upon her actions, she probably would not even care. My point is that just as I am respectful as a fan of the business that I love, Miss Lee needs to learn to be respectful to the business that's currently putting food on her table...although...she could use an extra sandwich or two.
The Honky Tonk Man figure did not yet have a jumpsuit but is clad in red tights. I particularly appreciate the fact that the hair is sculpted to be a bit messed up in the front as if he is in the middle of a match or one of the legendary five-hour television tapings of the era. Hopefully a guitar will be added to the jumpsuit. Many fans are hoping for a red jumpsuit as it is one of the few that Jakks did not produce with their figures of HTM.
Miss Elizabeth marks the last legend who has not been overdone that we will see in figure form. By inserting the legends into their Elite line, going forward we are only likely to see characters that are known by both diehard and casual fans. The days of seeing figures of largely territorial stars are dead. While the Mattel product is well-produced and usually visually impressive, it's not going to sustain the interest of fans that Jakks brought to the table with their Classic Superstars. A sad but true reality, for sure.
A WrestleMania XXVIII version of The Undertaker was shown and is already hitting Toys "R" Us stores in purple "20-0" packaging. Wal Mart will see their own exclusives with a line of current stars clad in t-shirts painted directly onto the figures. Ryback will be hitting the shelves first (well...first as in not as Skip Sheffield) in a pack with Jinder Mahal, and Lesnar will have both basic and elite figures.
