Jazwares and AEW are starting to unveil its Unrivaled Series 5 line and like the four series before it, there is a distinct lack of female talent present.
Unrivaled Series 5 features the likes of Jon Moxley, Luchasaurus, Jungle Boy, and more but no female stars. To date, only Brandi Rhodes and Riho have received AEW action figures amongst the female talent.
Britt Baker has often called out Jazwares for having too many Cody figures and no Britt Baker figure.
Jazwares partner Jeremy Padawer took to social media to address the criticism.
Pairing AEW Unrivaled with Unmatched will give us the opportunity to dive deeper into the roster. The key is balancing main event talent, mid-card talent and up and coming talent. 2 assortments will help tremendously.— Jeremy Padawer (@JeremyCom) February 3, 2021
We will absolutely celebrate the incredible roster of women in AEW. It's been a miss. No excuses. With Unmatched and Unrivaled, we will do better.— Jeremy Padawer (@JeremyCom) February 3, 2021
The timeline of developing a line of action figures is approximately 9 months from concept to shelf... That includes all approvals. If you ever wondered why it takes time to address things - from avails, to factory changes, to talent in a roster - newbies and champions.— Jeremy Padawer (@JeremyCom) February 3, 2021
Fingers crossed fans will be able to get their hands on a Britt Baker or Hikaru Shida figure with AEW Unrivaled Series 6.
