WWE Mattel Ultimate Edition Shinsuke Nakamura


Recommended Posts

Big thank you goes out to Mattel for sending us out this very generous sample for review!

The King of Strong Style is here with Mattel's Ultimate Edition action figure. Everything screams premium.

When you first hold the box in hand, it feels much different than the typical elite style packaging.

It has a red lining on the inside, a unique box shape, and an interesting bio on the back.

This figure line is aimed at the adult hardcore collector.

This fits among your other basics and elites from Mattel, only with tons more packed in with a $30 price tag.

What separates the Ultimate Edition from the typical Elite figure?

You get multiple heads. Each head comes with Shinsuke's signature expressions.

You can do a walk out pose, or mid match open mouthed pose, or have one with him getting beating beat up by his opposition!

You also get a plastic entrance jacket.

You get two options, you can swap the jacket's arms, then swap in the regular arms, and now you have an entrance vest.

You can get multiple looks with one figure.

You also get three pairs of interchangeable hands.

And like previously mentioned, you also get a pair of arms for match type scenarios.

The colors seem to really pop out at you. I have several other Nakamura figures, but the colors seem very vibrant. So that is a big plus!

You get all the traditional articulation that you typically get with elites, only that you get bonus movement as well!

The extra movement you get in the tip of the toes. You can move the tip of the boots for kicks, walking, or cool in ring poses that you can recreate.

You get this really awesome articulation in the shoulder area. It's a sort of cool butterfly joint that allows the arms to be bent back of some really fantastic poses.

You also get a mid torso articulation point that allows the mid section to swivel from side to side.

The traditional articulation points are full head rotation, bends at the arms, elbows, wrists, waist, legs, knees, and ankles.

While this is the best Nakamura figure release to date, there are some drawbacks.

The chest is molded differently to include that new butterfly joint articulation, but when you have him shirtless, he almost looks like he has a flabby torso and chest.

The legs are also a bit on the thick side. Shinsuke always has worn form fitting tights and gear, so hopefully Mattel can correct this in the future.

While it is not a perfect figure, this is still hands down some of Mattel's best work.

I have been collecting the Mattel WWE line since 2010 til now and these Ultimate Edition figures are some of the most detailed figures that you will ever find.

You are certainly getting your monies worth. I would rate this a 8/10.

Once again, massive thanks to Mattel for this review sample!
