WWE elite series Bob Backlund


Recommended Posts

I love when a toy company makes figures most people may not realize they want or need.
That is the story of today's review as we look at WWE Elite Bob Backlund. 

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

The packaging is the standard Elite box that we already know what to expect from Mattel, showing the figure within and an image of WWE Hall of Famer Bob Backlund in the upper right corner.

Taking the figure out of the package, he comes packed with a championship belt and has a real cloth robe and towel around his neck.

The toy looks like Backlund, not so much how he looked at his height of popularity, but close enough. The Mattel scan technology has really improved over time. 

The figure retains all the points of articulation that is expected from the Elite collection.  Head turns. Shoulders, elbow, and wrist all move freely and the inclusion of extra hands are always a nice addition to any 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. 

His title belt is the stuff of legends and it looks absolutely perfect.

If you are not a wrestling fan, then there is no way that I can convince you why you need to own a Bob Backlund figure. His contribution to wrestling as one of the pre-modern era baby faces won't sway you. But if you are a fan and know your history, then you know why adding Bob Backlund to your figure collection is a must!

Overall, he is a 3 out of 5 

Thank you again to Mattel for the sample.
