The first wave of AEW figures produced by Jazwares and Wicked Cool is set to hit stores in the coming months and big plans are already put in place for the future.
Appearing on Adventures in Collecting, Jazwares partner Jeremy Padawer revealed some exclusive plans for a second variant on the first wave of figures.
"I think the skin tones are good, they're going to be better. We'll launch and then there will be a better variant. We're definitely going to do a variant run of series one; lighter skin tones to start, darker and more rich skin tones towards the end of the run. I don't know which one is going to be more rare yet," he said.
The first wave of figures in the AEW Unrivaled series will include Chris Jericho, The Young Bucks, Cody, Kenny Omega, and Brandi Rhodes.
Padawer continued, discussing the launch of the series and how he hopes it will eventually grow.
"We're going to be delivering a new wave approximately every two months, maybe even faster than that. We're launching it at Wal-Mart and Ringside [Collectables] and I think it will very quickly extend beyond those retail outlets. At that time, you'll see more development because when you have more retailers, you have to get exclusivity and opportunity for everyone to shine. The first season of the launch if about making sure we get it right and then we extend," he said.
Padawer also noted that they will pull out "all the tricks" when it comes to exclusives and variants, saying he likes to keep collectors guessing and excited and that they should expect the unexpected.
