AEW BRODIE LEE & NEGATIVE 1 FIGURE SET
I recently received the latest AEW Jazwares box set, which features figures of the late Brodie Lee and his son Negative 1 (who occasionally makes appearances with the Dark Order). This touching piece is one of the best box sets that the company has produced. The tribute to Brodie Lee and his family makes it special already, but the figures are top notch as well (the Brodie figure has a long white robe over his wrestling outfit), a title belt and extra hands are included (they are placed on the side of the package), and the back of the box includes a photo of the AEW roster during the Brodie Lee tribute show. An amazing piece of work.
The set is available exclusively at ringsidecollectibles.com (currently on back-order with an expected ship date of August 2022) and goes for $59.99. This is one of those sets that collectors might think about getting two sets: one to keep in the box and one for display.
CACTUS JACK FUNKO POP FIGURE
The first ever Cactus Jack Funko Pop figure is now available. The figure is decked out in his Wanted Dead or Alive t-shirt and a red & black flannel shirt. Cactus is also holding a garbage can. It’s a Game Stop exclusive (in stores and online) and costs $14.99.
