  1. Big thanks to Mattel for sending us out this review sample! The Shakespeare of song, the songbird of our generation is here to grace us with his presence on RUSEV DAY! This is the Mattel Elite series 65 Aiden English chase figure. A big smile came to my face when I realized that English would be getting an elite figure, and it certainly did not disappoint. His face scan has that pompous look that only the artist can give. The new True FX face scan technology really captures his look. I really appreciate his beard on this figure. His beard isn't that full and comes in patches in real life, and I feel Mattel really delivered on that aspect. His skin is very accurate and has that pale, milky white skin tone. Mattel really steps it up this year when it comes to extras and accessories! You get the plastic plain black scarf, soft goods cloth black robe, hipster style black sunglasses, and a WWE microphone. His body type has a slim, yet defined look. He is not very muscular on TV as say an EC3, but he is very toned and athletic, and it comes across well in action figure form! He is wearing black tights with an abstract shimmering gold, white, and pink accents design on the left pant leg. English is wearing the mid cut black boots with painted on silver buckles on the side. He also is wearing a painted on shimmering gold belt with a silver belt buckle. You get the artistic style removable hand, a gripping hand, and two closed fists. All are great for recreating matches during his run with Rusev on Smackdown Live. As with other elite action figures you get articulation in the head, shoulder, arms, elbows, wrists, waist, mid torso, legs, knees, boots, and ankles. One major detail that I would have changed is the scale. Upon reviewing several images and video footage as reference, Aiden English is taller than both Rusev and Lana. But in figure form, both Lana and Rusev are taller than English. Being a collector, I like to have a full roster in action figure form, and certainly could not pass up the opportunity to own an Aiden English elite to complete my Rusev Day trio! I believe the positive outweighs the negative on this figure release, and appreciate the strong effort on Mattel's part. I would rate this a 7/10 Thank you once again to Mattel for this very generous review sample!
  2. First want to give Mattel a very big thanks for sending us out this review sample! Beware, Sanity is here with the WWE Mattel Elite Collector's edition Alexander Wolfe of Sanity! Sanity has been tearing up its competition in NXT and now the blue brand of Smackdown Live! Wolfe is a first time in the line action figure. First thing I wanted to point out is the extensive deco on this figure release! Pictures really do not do it justice. It's something you need to hold in hand to admire all the colors and patterns on his gear. Its quite astonishing that Mattel can give us all this detail at a price point of about $20. We have come a long way since the Jakks days when they were reusing the same body molds and even went as far as reusing old head sculpts for various superstars. In hand the figure is quite heavy. Wolfe has a very distinct body type in real life, and I feel that Mattel has really delivered on that in figure form. The face scan has that crazy eyed look like he's about to snap on his opposition! His hair has that imperfect slicked back mohawk. He features removable suspenders which are not glued or sculpted on. Very nice touch on a piece that can be left on or off. He also comes with a very detailed rubber coat. The sides have a distressed fabric appearance with red paint, and the Sanity logo on the back. The tights he is sporting have a very cool design with patches, pockets, and a zipper design along the front and back. He has on small maroon knee pads with that distressed fabric design. He is also wearing the tall black boot design with white lacing with maroon accents. As with most elite figures you get articulation at the head, shoulders, arms, elbows, wrists, waist, legs, knees, boots, and ankles. A small detail that goes really far are the extra pair of removable hands. You get a complete pair of open hands, as well as the half open grip hand mold. Each set of hands give you unique poses and playability. Alexander Wolfe is very much in scale with other figures. One area of improvement would be to either have a different material for the jacket, or figure out a way to allow articulation as the thick rubber hinders movement in the joints. I would definitely consider picking this up to complete your Sanity trio or Smackdown Live roster! I would rate this figure release a 7.5 Once again big thank you to Mattel for this great review sample!
  3. Massive thank you to Mattel for this awesome review sample! Hacksaw Jim Duggan, is here with Mattel's Retro-fest Elite Gamestop exclusive action figure. This release is a three in one. Which means, you get three eras of Hacksaw Jim Duggan that you can complete if you have the previous Mattel releases of Jim Duggan. The crown goes with Hacksaw from his late 80's run during his stint as King Hacksaw. The shirt goes well paired with the Mattel Legends Jim Duggan as the mid to late 80's Duggan. The United States flag goes perfectly with the new generation Jim Duggan with the full singlet. You can see these pictures of all three eras of Duggan below for comparison. I truly believe that Mattel is upping their game with every release. I love the effort being made to include various accessories to these Elite line action figures. You will get the crown, soft goods cloth shirt, US flag, and the classic 2X4. The packaging features a unique 80's game cab feel that fills any collector of these classic WWF characters full of nostalgia! The front of the box has the cool game controls with the old school WWF style font that says Retro-fest at the top. The back of the box has all of Hacksaw's stats in video game style font. The face scan has Duggan's goofy look with his tongue out. Goofy isn't necessarily bad in this case, as when I close my eyes and think of Duggan, this is exactly what I imagine. His hair has that scruffy and shaggy brown hair which is done quite impressively. His attire features a blue singlet with red and white with blue stars on the back. He also has red and white knee pad on one side, with a blue knee pad with white stars on the other. Duggan is sporting the tall white laced boots with the United States flag emblem on the side. The scale is accurate as well, and is in line with other Mattel scale action figures. One area of improvement is his torso/mid section. I always recall Jim Duggan of having a barrel type belly, it would've been more accurate to have that be the selection for his torso instead. Another thing Mattel can improve on is the United States flag accessory. It is made out of thin paper, any crease or even taking it out of the packaging can damage it if you are not being careful. I do recall Jakks including cloth flags with various figure releases. Even with these minor flaws, this is still a top notch action figure of a classic character! This figure can be purchased online and in store at any Gamestop. My rating for this particular release would be a 9/10. Once again, thank you to Mattel for sending us out this sample!
  4. I wanted to give a massive thank you to Mattel for sending us this very generous review sample! The 16 time world heavyweight champion, the WWE Hall of Famer is here with one of my personal favorite figures! This particular release is from the Gamestop exclusive line of the popular Retrofest series. This figure release is from Flair's run as the WWF world heavyweight champion, and feud with the Macho Man Randy Savage as Flair had been terrorizing Savage along with the lovely Miss Elizabeth. They went head to head at Wrestlemania 8 with the Macho Man ultimately defeating Flair to recapture the gold. The line features several classic superstars from the 80's and 90's. The box features a very unique design in which the box resembles a classic video game cab. The font is is the same font used in the Golden Era and features the classic blocked logo, minus the "F" in the logo for obvious reasons. On the back of the box features the Nature Boy's highlights and stats in cool video game lettering. Once unboxed, the figure feels very premium and solid in hand. The robe is a soft goods cloth robe which is very fitted. It can be removed if needed. The robe has an intricate pattern on the front and back in silver with "Ric Flair" on the back. The scan is fantastic as it captures that classic smug look that only Ric Flair could give! The hair sculpting was also beautifully done. Flair's golden locks look great, even in action figure form! A small detail that was not skipped by Mattel was Flair's dark colored eye brows. On some other figures in the past made by other toy companies, it seemed like they could never achieve the accurate color of his brows on figure form. Such a small detail, but as a collector and massive Ric Flair fan it was certainly appreciated! The color of his trunks, boots, and knee pads are red and the "RF" logos on the side of his trunks and side of his boots are white. The back of his knee pads are a pink shade, which adds more realism and attention to detail. While the front remains a solid red. While this is an absolute amazing figure, there is one glaring drawback. I would have chosen a different torso mold. Flair was always in great shape, but he never had a body builder physique with abs. A slightly thicker torso mold would have been more appropriate. This figure release is a must have for any old school fan of the 80's and 90's wrestling, or even a new era fan that is discovering Flair matches on the WWE Network for the very first time! I would rate this figure a 9.5/10 All around fantastic figure with extras, detail, unique packaging, and all the bells and whistles that Ric Flair deserves. Once again, a big thank you to Mattel for this review sample!
  5. A big thank you goes out to Mattel for sending us out this review sample! KO is ready to "fight anyone" in Mattel's WWE Elite series 66 Kevin Owens! You get the latest look of Kevin Owens from Smackdown Live. Ever since returning from his injury at the hands of Bobby Lashley, Owens has returned with new vigor and life on the blue brand. Mattel has included all the bells and whistles with this release. The head scan is very dead on from previous scans that have almost looked cartoonish. It seems like the new TrueFX technology implemented has really taken Mattel Elite figures to an all new level. The beard feels nice to the touch and has texture to it. The facial hair has not been painted on like past figures in the elite line have had. It even has the same patchy spots of the beard which is a nice touch. Owens is sporting his trademark fight shorts that has "K" on the left leg and "O" on the right side. The logo is in blue, with a white trim. On his sleeveless shirt, it has the current logo that says "fight anyone" in black, white, and blue. The body type is very much on point, as Owens has that burly bar room fighter type of body. Less muscle definition would have been preferred on his arms. He has his tattoos included on his arm, shoulder, and hands. You get an added bonus of extra removable hands that make play and collecting that much cooler! The extra set of hands also include the tattoo design. You get one pair of closed fists, and one pair of open hands. Mattel was also generous enough to include a "Yep" Yep" Yep" maroon removable soft goods t-shirt. The shirt was a take on Daniel Bryan's "Yes!" t-shirt at the time of their feud. As much as I really enjoy this particular release of Kevin Owens, there is one minor change I would make. That would be to change the color of his hair. Kevin Owens has been with WWE since 2014, and I have never seen him have red hair or a red beard. I do think it takes some time in the design process to effectively nail down certain traits to the superstars, so i'm sure in time we will see a better and updated version! You get articulation at the head, shoulders, elbows, wrists, elbows, legs, knees, boots, and ankles. I would rate this an 8.5/10 Once again a massive thank you to Mattel for this awesome review sample!
  6. Massive thanks to Mattel for sending us out this review sample! The Enigma, Jeff Hardy is here with WWE Mattel Elite 67 Jeff Hardy action figure! This figure is based off of Jeff Hardy's United States championship run on Smackdown Live! Out of the numerous figure releases he has had, this figure is in contention for best Jeff Hardy figure release. It has that intense and menacing scan! His eyes even feature the white out contact lenses that Hardy has been wearing as of late for his matches on the blue brand! The figure scan looks great for poses where Hardy is getting beat up, or putting the smackdown on his opponents! The colors on this figure are so bright, that i've got to wear shades! His face paint has orange, aqua blue, light blue, and white. Mattel even included the spacer earrings on the head of this figure. This is perfect for recreating that classic scene where Randy Orton stuck a screwdriver into the spacers of Jeff Hardy during their Hell in a Cell match! His pants are solid black, and features a white studded belt that has some nice texture when you touch it. The coolest part I believe, are his multi colored arm sleeves! They have a unique speckled/splattered black, white, and blue design! This really makes the figure pop and stand out among your shelf of action figures. 2019 has been the year of Mattel upping their game by including interchangeable hands! This release has the classic Jeff Hardy entrance gun pose! You can also do the "Brother Nero" delete post as well by swapping in one of the unique hands as featured in the picture gallery. Both sets of hands have Hardy's tattoo roots design peeking through the arm sleeve. You also get a removable United States championship title that fits most of the Mattel scale action figures. Mattel also has a special edition chase figure of Jeff Hardy in the red, white, and blue. You get the customary articulation in the head, shoulders, elbows, wrists, waist, mid torso, legs, knees, and boots. As someone who is a lifelong fan of WWE and massive Jeff Hardy fan, I felt the need to have both in my collection. Jeff Hardy is known for his unique face paint, colorful outfits, and charismatic personality that has endeared him to the WWE Universe. I would rate this figure release a 9.5/10 Once again, thank you to Mattel for sending us out this very generous review sample!
  7. To start i'd like to give a big thank you to Mattel for sending us out this review sample! The "Glorious" Robby Roode is here with this Wal-Mart exclusive WWE Mattel Elite Survivor Series action figure. Bobby Roode has been everywhere in the world of professional wrestling. He is a character I never envisioned as having a Mattel release, so its fantastic that we can add such a cool superstar to our collections! This is a figure release which was based off his United States championship run after he defeated the villainous Jinder Mahal in the finals of the tournament on an Smackdown Live! The face scan is done very well but leaves for some areas of improvement. Having only a small amount of figures released thus far, it sometimes takes toy makers awhile to finally nail down a face scan properly. The beard on the figure has a red tint on the sides and isn't as full as it was during that time of his career. The body type on the figure is very much like Roode's. It has a very muscular and toned build. In comparison to other action figures, this action figure is very much in scale and looks great when paired off in matches with other superstar's action figures. The trunks are maroon, with silver accents and the "Roode" logo in yellow on the front with "Glorious" being on the back in yellow as well. Bobby Roode is sporting the tall black laced boot style. Mattel went all out with the extras by including a soft goods Survivor Series removable t-shirt. The shirt fits very snug and has a fitted look. Mattel has come a long way from its early days where shirts were frayed and sometimes baggy. This is the perfect fit! Mattel in recent time has started to move away from including figures with the huge and bulky plastic t-shirts. As a collector, I can say that we appreciate cool extras such as a cloth t-shirt or robe when purchasing an action figure of this price point. You also receive a WWE United States championship title that has the network WWE logo. With other Elite style action figures you get numerous points of articulation. You get to bend the figure at the head, shoulders, arms, wrists, mid torso, waist, legs, knees, ankles, and you get a swivel at the boot. As previously mentioned, I would only improve on a couple of areas such as the fuller beard and changing the red tint on the sides of the beard. Bobby Roode is also known for his signature robes he wears for each of his performances during his elaborate entrances. It would have been a nice touch if we could have received a cloth robe instead of the t-shirt. I had to use another superstar's robe for this photo shoot. But that is only a minor thing I would have wanted as a collector and fan of Roode. While this may not be a perfect release, it is still a fantastic action figure that captures the likeness of the Glorious one! I would rate this figure a 8/10 This figure can be purchased at Wal-Mart as part of the Survivor Series Elite line. Once again I would sincerely like to thank Mattel for sending us out this fantastic review sample! This was an absolute blast to shoot with!
  8. Big thanks to Mattel for sending us out this very generous sample! K-O Mania III is here with Mattel's WWE Elite series 66 Kevin Owen's chase figure. Every year for Wrestlemania season Kevin Owens has had a t-shirt that has one of the original Wrestlemania logos and put his unique spin on it. This figure is from Wrestlemania 34 which was from the return of Daniel Bryan. Bryan and then Smackdown Live general manager Shane Mcmahon took on the nefarious Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens in a match where if Zayn and Owens lost the match, they would be banished from Smackdown Live. I have owned several Kevin Owens figures in the past and felt I was done collecting them since the gear is similar on most releases. However, Mattel always finds a way to reel the collectors in! This is a fantastic figure release with a vast array of extras. The face scan has that typical Kevin Owens smirk that was captured flawlessly. The beard has a nice texture and grain to it. On TV the beard doesn't look full and looks to come in patches, and Mattel nails even that small detail. His tattoos are accurately depicted on his arm, shoulder, and hand. You get an extra pair of hands, one set of closed fists, and another set of open hands. Both sets of hands come with the tattoos which is a nice touch! Kevin Owens has a bigger frame than most superstars on the blue brand and the choice of body is very much on point. Mattel has nailed that barrel and stalky look of K-O! One one side of his fight shorts it says 'fight" in yellow, and on the other side has his K-O logo in gray. You also get the YEP! YEP! YEP! soft goods removable t-shirt which was Owen's way of mocking Daniel Bryan with his Yes Movement that he was known for at the time. As with other elite figures you get articulation at the head, shoulders, elbows, wrists, waist, legs, knees, ankles, and swivel at the top of the boots. If I could have an area of improvement, it would be to add articulation to the mid section, as the molded on shirt hinders full on movement. Another area of improvement for a future release would be a less toned arm mold, as he isn't as muscular as he is depicted in this figure. But those minor flaws shouldn't hold you back from purchasing such a cool looking figure! As a collector it's very much appreciated when Mattel does something different and produces chase variants which makes the overall experience that much more enjoyable. I would rate this release a solid 8/10 Once again. a huge thank you to Mattel for this sample! It was a pleasure snapping some review shots!
  9. A big thank you to Mattel for sending us out this review sample! 5 feet of fury is here with Mattel's WWE Mattel Elite Survivor Series Alex Bliss! This is easily one of if not the best release of "little miss Bliss." The packaging is decked out with unique Survivor Series colors and has the updated Survivor Series logo on the front of the box! As a collector it's always great when toy makers go the extra mile to include cool little details that make the experience that much better. Fresh out of the package the first thing that immediately jumps out at my is the menacing trademark scowl of Alexa Bliss! I have seen Alexa Bliss since her early days in NXT when she adopted her bad girl persona, and that is one hundred percent the expression she makes! Her attire is red and gray with silver accents. I really liked how the front of her top is molded with silver accents. I have seen past figures just have a painted on design which doesn't look as accurate. She is wearing her trademark gloves and has kick pad design boots that say Alexa on one side, and Bliss on the other. Her hair even has her pink highlights at the tips! As a collector who has collected the Mattel line since its inception, I have come to notice even the most minute details. The hands on the newer women action figures are smaller and more in scale and accurate, which can certainly be appreciated! Alexa Bliss is only 5'1 so its awesome when her figure is in scale and much smaller compared to other women wrestlers. This is articulated at the head, shoulders, arms, elbows, wrists, waist, legs, knees, and feet. This is comes with the Raw women's championship. The title is quite large and can be a pain to keep on the waist of some of the smaller women's superstars such as Alexa Bliss. I can hope Mattel can adopt a smaller scale title sometime in the future. A minor tid bit I would adjust would be to include an ab crunch in the mid torso to add articulation similar to the mens action figures. I would give this figure release an 8.5/10 These action figures are in stores now at your local Wal-Mart. Pick up one or all your favorites in the Mattel Survivor Series line. Thank you once again to Mattel for sending out the generous sample!
  10. On the newer figures from D.C. Multiverse by Mattel. I really wish this line was always this quality because this is a beautiful figure.
