Although a couple of great looking Ryback figures are in Mattel's plans for 2013, they all have yet to be released. A few weeks back, pictures taken by yours truly of prototypes of the upcoming Ryback figures were seen right here on the blog. Clad in his signature singlets and with a scowl of destruction on his face, these figures will be ready to dominate any WWE ring...just not this Christmas. That is unless a parent decides to plunk down a pretty big wad of money for a Skip Sheffield figure.
With the WWE Universe getting more and more behind the monster known as Ryback, secondary market price for the Sheffield figure has begun to rise...fast. Between fans who previously snubbed the figure that are now suddenly wanting it as well as holiday gift giving time approaching, it's a bit easier to understand the demand. Little Jim...err...Johnny may want a Ryback, but is paying $80 and up really worth it?
The verdict? Wait. Ryback is coming...with a vengeance. But what if you're a parent who has a child that won't speak to you unless a Ryback figure is under his or her tree? What can I do but offer some simple parenting advice? Feed them more...soap.
