One of the all-time greatest WWE® Superstars, our first-ever Andre the Giant™ figure leads off Mattel's 2012 WWE® Legends lineup. With a stature matched only by his popularity, he's possibly the largest WWE® figure ever created by Mattel – both figuratively and literally – and proudly displays the WWE Championship that he controversially surrendered to “Million Dollar Man” Ted DiBiase after his victory over Hulk Hogan in 1988.
Titles: WWE® Champion; World Tag Team Champion
Memorable Moment: Andre the Giant™ returned to WWE® in 1987 with his eye on the WWE® Championship, and a willingness to do anything to win it. But one thing stood in his way – longtime friend and WWE® Champion Hulk Hogan. Andre, undefeated in his 15-year career, turned on Hogan and enlisted Hulk’s longtime nemesis, Bobby “The Brain” Heenan, to be his manager. At WrestleMania® IIIin front of a record 93,173 fans, the two squared off in arguably the biggest match of all time.
