Halloween is merely a week away and I finally get to do something Halloween and wrestling related.

Mattel and WWE have been doing some fun stuff with their Zombies line and who better to review than the Demon king himself, Finn Balor!

Thank you to Mattel for the review sample. 

Zombie Finn Balor comes packaged in a slight redesign of the zombie packaging that has become a stable of the series. It seems a bit more streamlined than the previous packaging and, I feel, a bit more eye-catching.

The Zombie line has been a fun and creative use of wrestlers. It's fun to take them out of the standard wrestling world and venture into the absurd and wacky world that toys are meant to be. To take it even further, I'd love to see a comic or animated series of wrestlers as zombies and monsters.

Finn is a great wrestler to be used in this way since he does sport demon makeup at times, making the leap into a zombie is completely an obvious choice.

The articulation is beyond standard with elbows, hips, "neck bones", shoulders, and knee articulation, but the play factor escalates with the look of this figure. Whoever is sculpting these figures, please give them an award.  So creative and so much fun. 

This figure isn't for the regular wrestling fans seeking the highest points of articulation and most realistic sculpts of their favorite superstars. This is for another subset of collector and casual fan.
We already know fans of horror and Halloween who are buying the zombie series to use during their decorations of the coolest holiday ever! 

Adding Finn to anyones collection is a must. He would fit in anyones horror or fantasy collection. 

As a toy, it is 100% fun and imaginative, but if you are seeking something more than just a monster looking creepy zombie figure, this probably isn't the toy for you. With that, I am giving this toy a 3 out of 5. Well sculpted and looks great but won't be something that all fans want to have.

Guys let us know what you think and leave a comment below
