Border Patrol: WWE Elite Scale Play Set – Must See!

Border Patrol - WWE Elite Scale play set by Extreme Sets

For this edition of Border Patrol, we’re just featuring one eBay auction. But it’s a doozy!

I am instantly wary of eBay auctions listed with qualifiers like “OOAK HTF L@@K!!!” in the title. This auction is not titled like that; I’m the one applying the labels, because if you love action figures, you’ve got to check it out.

This play set was built to accommodate a Mattel WWE Elite Scale ring – that’s not included in the auction but you can pick up an Elite Scale ring with free shipping at the Mattel Shop this week. The play set comes with pretty much everything else (minus the figures, naturally) to give your wrestling action figures a full-size arena to put on a show. It comes with a couple of entrance sets, a Jumbotron and speakers that are suspended from the ceiling, and a custom built audience, complete with wrasslin’ slogans on their t-shirts.

This was a prototype built for an ambitious but ultimately underfunded Kickstarter project from last year. Be prepared to see a huge price tag, and know that this play set is so huge that the seller is only accepting bids from people who can pick it up (in a pickup truck, most likely) from its location in Southern California. Even if this puts you out of the running, you should still take a look at this one-of-a-kind WWE Elite Scale play set.

In AFP’s Border Patrol, we scour active eBay auctions for customized action figures that you won’t want to let slip by!

Border Patrol: Marvel Legends Rogue, WWE Seth Rollins, and Transformers Optimus Prime

Border Patrol - Marvel Legends Rogue, WWE Seth Rollins, Transformers Optimus Prime

In this edition of Border Patrol, we’ve got some tried and true favorites plus a new champ:

  • Marvel Legends Rogue by Loose Collector – the DC Direct Hush Poison Ivy has been a go-to head for the likes of Rogue and Jean Grey for years, but the Loose Collector crew is one of the few capable of executing the recipe so cleanly – ends Wednesday, April 8 at 7:03PM PST
  • WWE Wrestlemania 31 Seth Rollins by highlytales88 – just how much is a WWE Heavyweight championship worth? – after snatching the title from Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns at Wrestlemania 31, this Seth Rollins custom skyrocketed in price, getting bid up by fans looking to secure memorabilia from his championship run – ends Thursday, April 9 at 4:57PM PST
  • Transformers Masterpiece Optimus Prime by billmeistercustoms – it’s been a while since I’ve seen a Masterpiece Optimus Prime, but with as many as there have been, and as many as there will be, it makes you wonder just how much more Takara and Hasbro could charge for a metallic paint job – ends Wednesday, April 8 at 11:16AM PST

Toy Fair 2015: Mattel WWE Elite

Toy Fair 2015 WWE Elite (1 of 22)

Admittedly, my interest in this line has waned since the Legends line extension was folded back into the Elite umbrella, but I still appreciate the good sculpts and articulation setup for these wrestlers. I’m getting a little more familiar with today’s stable – but that’s only because my wife can’t stop watching the WWE Divas reality show.

Of these reveals, I know the Junkyard Dog, Batista, Doink, and Hogan. Even the Hulkster in his prime (which this figure is not – it looks like a figure for his latest return to the WWE) would have a hard time getting me to recall the rest of them.
