Header.jpgIt's Wednesday and you know what that means... ToyFarce review!
ALWAYZ READY! This week, we're having a look at the Major Wrestling Figure Podcast Ultimates figures of Matt Cardona and Brian Myers from Super7. In a nutshell, Matt Cardona and Brian Myers are two professional wrestlers that you might have seen in WWE, AEW, Impact, GCW or several other companies, that also happen to be huge toy collectors. They have a podcast together where they talk about toys every week, and Super 7 did action figures of them from that podcast. Basically, imagine your favorite toy collector/reviewer, who also happens to be a pro wrestler, getting his own action figure.

The packaging has always been one of the Super7's strong suit, so the unboxing experience is definitely nice. First, the figure have their own shipper boxes. Then, there is a nice sleeve, complete with a wrestling belt wrapping it. Then the boxes themselves, with a ring deco on the front, and all the different heads and accessories displayed nicely.

First off, Matt Cardona (formerly known as Zack Ryder in the WWE), the Broski himself, the Michael Jordan of toy collecting (as he calls himself). His figure comes with 3 additional headsculpts, extra hands, a Major Wrestling Figure Podcast microphone, dog tags, Cardona dollar bills and the best one: his own action figure. Yep, the action figure also has an action figure of himself! How meta!

The figure in itself is ok, but the likeness could definitely be better, and the Super7 trademarked shiny plastic could use a coat of matte paint. Those figures also have the same dreaded ab-crunch that the NJPW figures also had, which is not very pretty to look at, at least on the figures that are shirtless (more on that later). Also, fun fact, the pointing finger hand is also holding an extra finger (I believe Matt explained in the podcast that it was due to tooling complications). "Got your nose!"

Brian Myers (formerly known as Curt Hawkins), the Most Professional Wrestler figure also comes with a ton of accessories: 3 additional headsculpts, extra hands, his entrance facemask, a Major Wrestling Figure Podcast microphone, dog tags and his own action figure as well. Honestly, give me more action figures that come with their own action figures. This is pretty fun!

Brian Myers likeness is... not great. Some of the headsculpts look like it's Odo from Star Trek: Deep Space 9 mid-transformation into Brian Myers (see pic!). Mattel's $20 bucks WWE Elite figure of Curt Hawkins did a way better job. 2 of the headsculpts have the hair glued on which does not look great. It's sad to say, but it's a good thing he comes with a face mask... Also, the ab-crunch articulation doesn't look as bad as on Matt Cardona since he's wearing a dark blue singlet.

All in all (aka the bottom line), those figures are ok, but not worth the price tag ($45,99 each). I feel like if they were $10-15 cheaper, they'd probably be a bit more attractive, even if I understand that Super7 is a smaller company and does need to charge us a bit more.

Totally agree with the $10-15 cheaper line.  I have the first wave of NJPW and Naito from the 2nd wave, and that's probably the last ones I'm getting from them.  The likenesses are off, the plastic is too shiny...I'm just not digging a lot of aspects of them.  The sad thing is, some things about them are great.  Accessories are amazing.  Attires are great!  But at $50...yeah, I just can't do it.

Yeah, I have the Okada from that first NJPW wave, and it was definitely a disappointment. I completely agree on the accessories and will even add that the packaging is really great on those lines. Basically, those figures are great on every other aspects, except the figures themselves 😅
