It seems as though the reason for WWE’s recent cryptic tweets have finally been revealed. WWE has announced a new licensing agreement with McFarlane Toys to create a new line of collectible statues, which will include The Undertaker. Below is the press release from WWE.com:

McFarlane Toys and WWE are proud to announce a new licensing agreement to produce the first-ever WWE limited-edition collectible statues.

Designed by visionary Todd McFarlane, the WWE ICON Series begins with The Undertaker and will include both current WWE Superstars and Legends.

WWE fans amd collectors can look forward to all the statues featuring authentic WWE memorabilia, which are highly limited in production. Select statues will also feature a limited run of authentic WWE Superstar and Legends signatures. Each WWE ICON statue will be created, developed and designed by Todd McFarlane and his award-winning McFarlane Toys design group, in conjunction with WWE, and will be meticulously sculpted and hand-painted to a fully realized likeness.

As teased on WWE’s official Twitter account, McFarlane Toys has chosen one of the most iconic WWE Superstars ever, The Undertaker as the first in the series. A fan favorite and multiple-time WWE Champion and World Heavyweight Champion, The Undertaker’s accomplishments have cemented his place among the greatest in WWE history.

The statue depicts The Undertaker, in amazingly authentic detail, with the enigmatic character that makes him a WWE icon. The Undertaker statue stands more than 17.5 inches tall, with a special base that includes LED spotlights, a plaque highlighting some of The Undertaker’s historic accomplishments. WWE fans will be able to own a piece of history, as each statue will feature a piece of the ring skirt from The Undertaker’s Inferno Match against WWE Superstar Kane from the February 22, 1999 edition of Monday Night Raw.

The Undertaker statue is limited to only 850 pieces, and each one is individually and sequentially numbered. As an added bonus, each statue will include a Certificate of Authenticity hand-signed by the internationally acclaimed artist and creator of McFarlane Toys, Todd McFarlane.

The limited edition collectible will retail at $295 and will be available on the McFarlaneToys online store and WWE Shop, starting Friday, December 6, 2013. A limited quantity of statues will be available through Diamond Select Retailers.
