WWE Mattel Shockmaster upside down figure

A Mattel Shockmaster figure was accidentally placed upside down and backwards in the package.

This is just so perfect and appropriate for the gimmick…

    He can sit(trip) proudly next to my Jakks figure on the shelf. Hope he doesn’t fall out of the package on the way to my place.

    A shocking new part for any collection of Fred Ottman merch.

  3. Darryl Stewart says:

    Are you sure it was accidental and not intentional?

  4. Barry says:

    That’s not actually in accident. It’s an intentional move by Mattel.

  5. LindaJean says:

    This is not an accident. This is the San Diego Comic Con exclusive figure, and he is deliberately packaged that way to recreate his epic fall from grace. The back of the package is even clear so you can see poor Uncle Fred’s face.

  6. Si says:

    “Accidental” in the “clearly designed that way just by looking at the shape of the plastic container” sense?

      I don’t collect them. LOL.

    • Anonymous says:

      Not intentional. The plastic casing was placed upside down and backward. The plastic part fits in the cardboard box either way, the machine just happened to screw up that one and put it in in the wrong direction.

      • JJ says:

        What are you talking about? That plastic CAN NOT fit any which way. The figure WAS meant to packaged that way. The back of the figure is even cut out so you can see the “Shockmaster’s” face.

  7. MistaMaddog says:

    If it had the recorded voice of Ole Anderson if you push a button, I’d buy it…

  8. John C says:

    If they could make a lego playset out of the whole scene that would be incredible.

  9. CP says:

    “Come and buy me Stid.”

  10. Mighty says:

    Wait, they made a Shockmaster figure? Truly no one is sacred.
