Surprised that there hasn't been a bit more buzz about these (scroll down a few pics for boxed shots)...

Nice that they went with the same style as the regular figures instead of stylizing them up like Hasbro did with the Mashers lines.

Seems to be a reuse of the Hawkman/Hawkgirl/Angella wings in the Lucha pack. These sets could be useful for customizers or people just wanting some easy, generic thugs for dioramas.

I actually think this is awsome. If only Hasbro had done their marvel mashers line like this. Im not into wrestling figures but the 10 year old in me is really excited about making super guys outta these.

...can't wait to get a set and play around with it a bit. Will probably grab the Mysterio set first since he's out of WWE and they may not do a second run of those.

These are a really neat idea. Probably pick up a few when they hit clearance.

These WWE Create-A-Superstar figures are the only "Masher" type figures that I haven't outright HATED for looking like a lump of near-preschool plastic taking up space in the action figure section that would be better filled by decent action figures.

I may actually have to get the "Lucha" one, just because you can put him together so he looks like Hawkman signed up with the WWE... :)

They are popping up at Targets now. They are slightly taller than Basics and Elites.

In case anyone is interested, TRU has a Ring/backstage/event arena set for the Build-a-Figure line.

Not sure how well it would work in non-wrestling type displays, but its out there.

Thanks for the link! I'm not so interested in them as wrestlers as I am for the accessories and the custom fodder that they'll provide. I know I'll be getting Bray Wyatt out of that batch just for the apron and those gloved arms. I imagine that the larger sets with all the crazy extras and no-name heads will be where most of my purchases will be.

Hmmm -- slightly taller, but not disagreeably, especially when you consider that the heights of the WWE figures are, of necessity, all over the map, ranging anywhere from Rey Mysterio all the way up to Khali and Big Show, and that doesn't even take into consideration figures of Hornswoggle and El Torito.

I think I can still make room for Lucha Hawkman without any trouble. :D
