Mattel WWE Elite 63: Shelton Benjamin

Mattel WWE Elite 63: Shelton Benjamin 

Before I post the review, I'd like to say that if you don't have the WWE network do yourself a favor and sign up for a free month and watch the Edge and Christian show. 

Today I'm going to review a former amateur wrestler, billed as the Gold standard, one half of "The World's Greatest Tag Team"  and a staple of the ruthless aggression era Shelton Benjamin.

We want to extend our thanks to Mattel for the review sample.

Mattel has graced us with not just one but two Shelton Benjamin elite figures. Granted that one is just a repaint or as we  collectors call it a " chase figure".  The gold standard was a unique look for Shelton, a VERY unique and distinctive look. 

The packaging is the standard elite fair that we come to expect from Mattel, showing the figure within and an image of Shelton Benjamin in the upper right corner.

Taking the figure out of the package, he comes packed with two extra hands and a large step ladder.

The toy itself looks exactly like the gold standard. The figure retains all the points of articulation you have come to expect from the Elite collection.  Head turns. Shoulders, elbow, and wrist all move freely and the inclusion of extra hands are a nice addition to the figure. 
There's ab crunch, waist turn, hip joints , double knee joints, boot cuts and ankle articulation as well.  Overall, the figure has a wide range of movement. Which is to be expected for the relative high flyer

His accessory for both the regular and chase versions is a ladder which is something he use to be known to use and even competed in a few classic ladder matches. It can fold and open like a regular ladder and is made well.

If you are not a wrestling fan, I don't know how I can recommend this figure since Shelton Benjamin is a guy who has his place in years past and who is currently an active member of the roster, unfortunately he really hasn't done much to garner attention,  but if you are a Wrestling fan this figure works with other figures in your  6 inch collection. 


Overall, he is a 3 out of 5 

Thank you again to Mattel for the sample.
