OtapediaShinsuke Nakamura World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) - BE@RBRICK

The WWE, formerly WWF and WWWF, is an entertainment company that is known around the world for professional wrestling. Although many unique people and personas have appeared through the years, one of the more recent fighters to join the WWE rosters is Shinsuke Nakamura. On the other hand, Medicom Toy, the company behind the BE@BRICK line of figures, began adding more figures in their collaboration with WWE. As a result, the “BE@RBRICK Last Man Standing Shinsuke Nakamura 100%” was created in 2019.

WWE x BE@RBRICK Collaboration Background

The first set of figures to be produced through the collaboration between BE@RBRICK and WWE was the Hulkamania BE@RBRICK, which was released in December 2014. As of early 2021, a total of four BE@RBRICK designs based on WWE have been produced, with the Nakamura figure being the most recent addition.

Collaboration Planning and Launch

Although the Hulkamania figure first launched in 2014, it would be almost two full years before another WWE BE@RBRICK figure would be made. After this gap, however, The Undertaker would get a figure of their own in August 2016. Later in 2019, both Shinsuke Nakamura and AJ Styles would also get recreated as BE@RBRICK figures as well. The Hulkamania and Undertaker figures were both made in BE@RBRICK’s 100% and 400% sizes, while the latter two were only made in the smaller 100% size.

This figure recreates Shinsuke Nakamura’s costume as he appears in the ring. His outfit simply consists of a pair of red pants tied up with a black belt, as well as a pair of black bracers, and a matching armband. Since his outfit doesn’t have a shirt, Nakamura’s upper body is painted to show off his muscular chest and abdomen. This figure also has Nakamura’s characteristic hair parted to one side and a unique smirk.

About WWE

The World Wrestling Entertainment company is widely known for holding professional wrestling competitions and events. It first began in 1953 as Capitol Wrestling Corporation, where it was a part of the National Wrestling Alliance. After the controversy surrounding the founders of the CWC, one of their fighters, and the NWA in 1963, however, the CWC founders left the NWA and created the World Wide Wrestling Federation. The company would truly begin to hit its stride after 1979, where it rebranded once again to become the World Wrestling Federation. This new rebranding eventually led to the creation of WrestleMania in 1985, which quickly became a staple of the professional wrestling scene. In 2002, the WWF would once again rebrand to become World Wrestling Entertainment, where it currently stands today.
