Dr. Britt Baker DMD has spoken out about the announcement of the latest line-up of AEW Unrivaled action figures from Jazwares.
On January 19, Jeremy Padawer of Jazwares announced via Twitter that the fourth series of AEW action figures would include Santana, Ortiz, Sammy Guevara, Matt Hardy and yet another version of Cody Rhodes and Kenny Omega.
The announcement was reacted to negatively by many when it was apparent that once again Britt Baker – the first female signed to an AEW contract – had been snubbed from the line-up despite mountainous support from the public for a miniature replica of the star, especially considering that Brandi Rhodes and Riho have received their likeness in plastic already.
Taking to Twitter herself, Baker wrote:
“LOLLL. Thank God we got another Cody in the works. I was worried.”

Cody Rhodes and Kenny Omega have received several action figures in the previous three series of releases. In Series One, both Kenny Omega and Cody received their initial figures, while the Rhodes brother was gifted a second toy in a double pack with brother Dustin entitled, Blood Brothers.
Following the announcement of a fourth series, Padawer also surprised fans by stating that there would be a different series of action figures, AEW Unmatched’, coming in fall of 2021 while the company planned to release monthly in-between the bi-monthly releases of AEW Unrivaled.
AEW UNRIVALED AND UNMATCHED SERIES:
There will be another series of AEW figures coming, called Unmatched – starting in Fall, allowing deeper dive into AEW! Waves monthly between Unrivaled & Unmatched.
Photos of Wave 4 are coming soon – currently in professional photography.

The news of another series of figures which will take a deeper dive into the AEW roster will give Britt Baker and her fans hope that the star will be included among the first releases when the collectables hit stores later this year.
