    WWE Ronda Rousey series 90 from Mattel

    Rowdy Ronda Rousey makes her debut as a standard figure in the newest wave of Mattel's WWE basic line as part of series 90. First off, thank you to Mattel for the review sample. How does this figure stand up against the person it is trying to emulate in plastic form? Let's first look at the packaging, which for some odd reason seems to be different for the line this time around. Nothing super obvious, but it feels more streamlined than previous waves. But, that could just be me? The image of Ronda is great and the way she is packaged really gives the impression of importance (I'm really not trying to fluff this piece), but I honestly think the new packaging (if it actually is new) helps to make the figure stand out. Now, with that all said and done, let's talk about the figure itself. It is a basic and standard figure that is fully-clothed, leaving Ronda without her signature wrestling gear. With that in mind, I wish she would have come packed with Rowdy Piper’s oversized jacket, but it might be possible we will see something like that in an entrance package figure later on. Points of articulation: this is as standard as it can be with this line. Head kind of turns, but is hindered by her hair. Waist, elbow, knee, hip, and shoulder joints, pretty good but nothing stand out. I believe this figure will sell well for two reasons. One, for the customizers who are looking for an affordable women's body buck to make their own figures, this figure works well. Two, this is our first chance to collect Ronda as a toy. Unfortunately, her face sculpt is super generic and not enough that you would automatically say “Hey, that’s Ronda.” But, once again, this body buck can be used for almost any female character. If you look, you can see they painted over someone else’s ring gear. Even so, it's a good reuse of parts. But as it goes for it being Ronda, well, it will do and this line is the most affordable standard line for wrestling toys to date. Good, solid, and durable, but if you are a collector this is currently your best and only option for getting Ronda in the ring with other female icons of wrestling. She is a 3 out of 5, but since I believe Ronda would roundhouse kick me if I keep talking, I'll leave it at that. Guys let us know what you think and leave a comment below Follow Rob on Instagram @alternativemindz And on Twitter @AltMindz Thanks again to Mattel for the review sample

    WWE Zombie Finn Balor

    Halloween is merely a week away and I finally get to do something Halloween and wrestling related. Mattel and WWE have been doing some fun stuff with their Zombies line and who better to review than the Demon king himself, Finn Balor! Thank you to Mattel for the review sample. Zombie Finn Balor comes packaged in a slight redesign of the zombie packaging that has become a stable of the series. It seems a bit more streamlined than the previous packaging and, I feel, a bit more eye-catching. The Zombie line has been a fun and creative use of wrestlers. It's fun to take them out of the standard wrestling world and venture into the absurd and wacky world that toys are meant to be. To take it even further, I'd love to see a comic or animated series of wrestlers as zombies and monsters. Finn is a great wrestler to be used in this way since he does sport demon makeup at times, making the leap into a zombie is completely an obvious choice. The articulation is beyond standard with elbows, hips, "neck bones", shoulders, and knee articulation, but the play factor escalates with the look of this figure. Whoever is sculpting these figures, please give them an award. So creative and so much fun. This figure isn't for the regular wrestling fans seeking the highest points of articulation and most realistic sculpts of their favorite superstars. This is for another subset of collector and casual fan. We already know fans of horror and Halloween who are buying the zombie series to use during their decorations of the coolest holiday ever! Adding Finn to anyones collection is a must. He would fit in anyones horror or fantasy collection. As a toy, it is 100% fun and imaginative, but if you are seeking something more than just a monster looking creepy zombie figure, this probably isn't the toy for you. With that, I am giving this toy a 3 out of 5. Well sculpted and looks great but won't be something that all fans want to have. Guys let us know what you think and leave a comment below Follow Rob on Instagram @alternativemindz And on Twitter @AltMindz Thanks again to Mattel for the review sample

  7. We saw a prototype for this figure at SDCC last month and now we have official images from Mattel for the WWE Series 90 Ronda Rousey figure which is slated for an online release in early November and then brick and mortar retailers shortly after.
  8. Review By: Robert Greenwood Before we do our review, we want to take a moment to remember Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart who passed away on 8/13/18. He was one half of one of the most iconic tag teams pre-Attitude Era, The Hart Foundation. When the music hits, you just have to dance and make sure you take the perfect selfie! Thanks to Mattel, we have our look at Breezdango, the tag team of Tyler Breeze and Fandango. The "Fashion Police" are here in Series 61 of WWE Elite. Tyler Breeze and Fandango have been gaining so much popularity amongst the WWE universe as of late that seeing them in the newest wave of the Elite Series was more of just a matter of when. These two Elite Series figures are packed with the build-a-display, which are simply a stand with a cool background image of each wrestler. Now being these guys are tag team partners, you would think that they are perfect to pick up together, but honestly, each separately was the smarter way to go. Tyler is more than an accomplished singles wrestler, his time in NXT gave him a decent group following. His figure has all that should be expected for an Elite figure. His face perfectly sculpted with the "duck lips" look is absolutely genius because how else do you take a selfie? You can't have Tyler without his signature selfie stick and cellphone that is attached to the end. Both figures come with the Fashion Police shirt that simple velcro in the back. They also get sunglasses and sport the "official Fashion Police" caps. But with Fandango, his sculpt of his face isn't as exact as with Tyler. Sure you can tell it’s him, but it's not as accurate as it could be. Fandango seems super jacked, but the paint apps on his pants really capture his ring gear. Nonetheless, you will need them both to take down ugly fashion trends in the WWE. Maybe even have them give a summons to AJ Styles for the "soccer mom hair" he is always sporting. These two Elite figures are a must buy due into no small part to not only bolster the roster of tag teams, but add some much needed fashion in the modern era of WWE. This figure is currently available for pre-order by Mattel on the Amazon SummerSlam Section. Thanks to Mattel for providing this figure free of charge for review. Check out images for the Elite Series wave 61 figures which include Tyler Breeze and Tyler Breeze and Fandango below.
  9. Review By: Robert Greenwood "The Phenomenal One" AJ Styles has had a storied career in professional wrestling and he has now garnered more respect and attention from the "casual" audience. He is simply one of the best in the business right now and his Elite Series 61 figure represents why he is the G.O.A.T. (Greatest Of All Time) at what he does. Series 61 is the build-a-display set which includes a base and card back so you can display your action figure as if it was a high end collectible. AJ is boxed in the typical Elite packaging and the window display shows pretty much the whole figure and his one accessory, an extra hood. The back of the box shows off a brief description about AJ putting up his United States Championship against Tye Dillenger and Baron Corbin. This figure is designed to represent AJ Styles’ entrance look. Yet even though the package talks about AJ defending his US Championship, it does not include the title belt as an available accessory. The figure does what it must do and that is: look absolutely amazing! The sculpt looks like AJ from his tattoos on his right side of his rib cage (his initials AJ and his kids’ birthdates) to his "soccer mom" hairdo. Which, no matter how you make it look, it’s just 100% AJ. Of course, with the Elite Series, you get full range of articulation, which is ideal for a wrestling superstar like himself. With these added points of articulation, this figure can definitely live up to the high flying technician that is “The Phenomenal One.” I want to briefly talk about the hood accessory. At first glance, it seems maybe a bit silly or cheap, but once I added it to the figure, I ended up liking its design more. It simply snaps in and becomes a hood he can have over his head as his music plays then stands at the top of the stage or snap in the hood that is sculpted to be down so when his music kicks in, AJ can lower it down and head to the ring to do what he does best. Either way, it works. Actually this might be better than if Mattel used a fabric hoodie. Overall this figure is just...(wait for it) phenomenal as is AJ himself. If I had to pick some negative aspects, I guess we could have done without the hoodie and instead included the US title. And the build-a-display isn't a bad thing, but would have benefited having something more like a static image from his TitanTron entrance. With all that aside, I am honestly an AJ fan from his days in TNA to his time in NJPW and, of course, how well he has excelled here in the WWE. The figure is a must buy and, being that it’s Summer Slam weekend, the AJ Styles figure will first be released during this time on the Amazon Treasure Truck in Brooklyn, NY. So, if you are going to be in NYC and attend Summer Slam, try and get him at the Amazon Treasure Truck! This figure is currently available for pre-order by Mattel on the Amazon SummerSlam Section. Thanks to Mattel for providing this figure free of charge for review. Check out images for the Elite Series wave 61 figures which includes AJ Styles below.
  10. Review By: Robert Greenwood The man known as KO has been a fighter for his entire career. He is, by typical fans, not the ideal look of a wrestler. Yet not only has he succeeded in winning numerous title reigns, but has been a part of some amazing story arcs in professional wrestling history. With that in mind, let’s take a look at Kevin Owens’ own Elite figure. If you have been reading these reviews, you already know what to expect from the packaging and the included build-a-display set, so I won't waste time on that. The real question is how cool is this figure? And the answer is that KO is just TOO SWEET!!!!! Wait, sorry, got a little out of control there. This figure is a cut above the rest. His face represents KO at his most vicious. This is the Fight Owens Fight figure, the KO, the man who came to Raw and took over (more or less)! The smug look on his face says it all. This sculpt really resembles Kevin, even including his tattoos on his shoulder and left forearm perfectly. His massive structure might be a bit bigger than I believe him to be, but the figure is no doubt Kevin Owens. He comes packed with two great accessories. First, a microphone. Kevin is an amazing talker in the business and can stir up so much just by talking. His second is the United States Championship title and it is a beautiful piece. My only gripe about it is that Kevin can't wear it around his waist, but most wrestlers tend to just place it over their shoulders. If there is one thing I really don't like about the Elite Series Kevin Owens is the shirt they have him wear. It's made of a soft plastic and it looks just bad on him. Personally, I would have preferred a paint app making it look like he was wearing a shirt or an actual fabric shirt like Tyler Breeze and Fandango came packed with. All in all, it's a great figure and having him packed with the belt helps tell better story. This figure is currently available for pre-order by Mattel on the Amazon SummerSlam Section. Thanks to Mattel for providing this figure free of charge for review. Check out images for the Elite Series wave 61 figures which includes Kevin Owens below.
  11. Who is a part of the Series 61 set? Who? Who? Who? None other than Mr Booty-O’s himself, Big E. What can we say about the “Powerhouse” of The New Day? Well firstly, this figure is without a doubt energetic to a fault. Big E either looks utterly scared or extremely psychotic. Trying to capture an expression that is only seen on the packaging might seem a bit unnecessary. Maybe in the right angle, this face is something Big E would make? Face scans like this make me wish this was on a figure that would be more gimmicky, something like the Retro figures line. Not so much on an Elite Series. Or, have him packed with a second normal expression. The entrance gear is identical to what Big E wears and looks perfect on him. He is massive, as rightfully he should be. His arms seem a bit thin, since Big E is a beast and his arms are no joke in real life. The paint apps are great and it’s important to have Big E in the Elite collection. New day is one of the most over factions in wrestling today, so Big E will be a most sought after figure. His ring gear has so much flexibility and super vibrant, just like all of the members of The New Day have. His build-a-display is fine, but like I've mentioned before, they connect together and it seems to be a bit of a waste of time to connect to make the artwork come together. I will once again state, I wish they had either official logos on the display or a static image from the TitanTtron. Also, if you don't get all the figures, you will have an incomplete background. Other than that, Big E was so much fun to photograph, even with the silly expression. Kids and adult collectors will have more fun playing with and/or displaying this figure. He is well made, perfect paint apps and a key member of WWE Tag Team Division and, I believe, a figure you will not want to pass up. This figure is currently available for pre-order by Mattel on the Amazon SummerSlam Section. Thanks to Mattel for providing this figure free of charge for review. Check out images for the Elite Series wave 61 figures which include Big E below. Follow Rob on social media: Instagram: alternativemindz Twitter: @ AltMindz
  12. Review By: Robert Greenwood Today I take a look at the new Walmart exclusive wave of WWE Elite Series Flashback figures from Mattel which include Shawn Michaels, Razor Ramon and Alundra Blayze. Each figure comes with a piece to re-create Shawn Michaels' Heartbreak Hotel Interview set. WWE Elite Flashback series: "The Heartbreak Kid" Shawn Michaels by Mattel They think he's cute and they know he's sexy. The heartbreaker, the show stopper, founding member of the Kliq, the Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels, aka Michael Hickenbottom, is represented here in his pre-DX and Post Rockers look. Mattel has been on a non-stop streak with no signs of stopping and this flashback series, which builds the titular character Shawn Michaels interview set the "Heartbreak Hotel," is just astounding to look at. This Elite flashback has captured not only the physical look of HBK's face, but his entire outfit has been faithfully recreated in toy form. The little nuances from his chains that connect the vest, his removable sunglasses, it's all here. He comes packed with the curtain and Heartbreak Hotel sign to help flush out the interview set. With him and the addition of the Flashback Razor Ramon (apart of this set), you can now relive their famous ladder match for the WWF World Intercontinental Championship belt. Is there anything negative to say about this figure? Yes, and this is as nitpicky as can be. When you remove his sunglasses, he has two small holes on either side of his temple. Honestly, that is a stretch, but finding fault with a toy that depicts the wrestler as he looked at that moment in his career, I really can't find anything off (maybe the face sculpt isn't photo realistic? But, that would be pushing it a bit.) When people think of Shawn Michaels, this is the Shawn most attuide fans will remember. The Shawn that lost his smile, the one who destroyed kayfabe by hugging it out with heels and faces alike in the middle of MSG. Shawn the epitome of arrogance.The over-the-top renegade who cared only for himself and put on instant classics in the ring. "The Heartbreak Kid" Shawn Michaels has now come home to collectors and fans alike. Mattel has hit high expectations with a very important figure in the annals of wrestling. A must buy and the only HBK figure that a collector will need. WWE Elite Flashback Series Doink the Clown by Mattel Send in the clowns. The master of carnival carnage has made the Elite treatment as part of the Heartbreak Hotel interview set. What can I possibly say about Doink the Clown? Mostly that he was played by at least two different wrestlers over the years and had a decent push during the time before the Attuide Era. Then, when WWE let most gimmicks go, he was pretty much gone. As far as the figure is concerned, he is as basic as can be. Sure, he is an Elite figure and he comes with all the articulation that should be expected for such. Yet, I feel there are a few factors that make this figure not as exciting as others. First of all, his face sculpt is nice, but it honestly doesn't look like Doink (maybe just a little). It looks more like a generic clown-like wrestling figure. I feel that he would work better as a clown-themed thug to place with a Joker action figure, which wouldn't be a bad idea if fans are looking to make army builders using Doink as lackeys. For any Joker figure, it would work great. Unfortunately, his only accessory is the leg lamp from the Heartbreak Hotel set, which is really a shame. If they could have added crazy unique clown themed items, this figure would have been given a breath of freshness and potentially a perfect figure to own. As for now, the only real reason people may buy him is to get said leg lamp, which is sort of wasteful. I love the Elite series and how Mattel takes big steps in having a very robust collection of wrestlers from every era of WWE, but some figures are a hard sell and without the leg lamp, Doink may not be a figure many people rush out to buy. WWE Elite Flashback Series Razor Ramon from Mattel The "Bad Guy" of the pre-attitude era makes his jump into the Elite ranks as part of the Heartbreak Hotel interview set. Razor Ramon, aka Scott Hall, came to WWE and crafted his gimmick based on the film Scarface. He was a greasy tough guy who took on anyone who came before him. The figure is, by far, the centerpiece of this series. A stand out figure for collectors and fans alike. Where do we start with? How about that he wears an actual fabric shirt modeled after his over- the-top Hawaiian style shirts he would where to the ring. He is covered in gold chains that would make Mr. T almost show respect. His face is sculpted exactly as he looked during the early 90s with the gelled back hair into a greasy ponytail and he is chewing on a toothpick, which is a signature part of his look. The articulation of Razor is by far the best of this whole line and I almost wished that Shawn Michaels had as much as this Razor figure. This figure looks, feels and poses like the "Bad Guy" himself and is a must own piece in the whole WWE Elite Flashback series. Only wish it included the Intercontinental title and a ladder so fans can recreate the famous Wrestlemania 10 ladder match with the Show Stopper, Shawn Michaels. WWE Elite Flashback Series Alundra Blayze Before today's modern woman's revolution and years before the term "Divas," the WWE had one of their best and brightest stars to come. She would have potentially changed women's wrestling after stigmas of it being a niche market, something almost as an afterthought. This, unfortunately, did not happen. Her name was Alundra Blayze. But after holding the women's title for 342 days she left and did one of the most controversial things ever broadcasted on professional wrestling. By jumping to the WCW and throwing her WWE (WWF) Championship Title in to a trash can on a live broadcast at a rival wrestling show. She was, for the most part, blacklisted and basically faded away to the history books. Years later, Alundra is now a Hall of Famer and has come out as an Elite figure, but is she worth the money? As far as the sculpt, she just passes representing what Alundra actually looks like. Her look is stylized and maybe a complete reuse of tooling, but it holds up and since she is a part of the Heartbreak Hotel interview collection, she will be needed to complete the set. The figure has a ton of articulation, but for some reason her upper body on the review sample seems to not want to hold a straight-up stance (she tends to lean a bit to either direction). She is packed with her Title and a piece of the Heartbreak Hotel interview set. The figure is a solid Elite style figure but it's missing the subtle details that would make someone scream "I need that Alundra Blayze figure in my life! " Yet, making her a part of the Heartbreak Hotel interview set helps to ease a buyer into owning a figure of a wrestler who never got the recognition she honestly deserved. Now fans can create dream matches that weren't possible and may never happen in real life. Thanks to the folks at Mattel for sending us these figures free of charge so we could review them. Check out more images fo all the figure below in our GALLERY!
  13. Here is a breakdown of the new WWE figures revealed by Mattel last week during the San Diego Comic Con last week. WWE Series "Macho Man" Randy Savage, Mandy Rose, & Drew Gulak WWE Elite Luke Harper, Erick Rowan, & Pete Dunne WWE Elite Cedric Alexander, Velveteen Dream, & Shayna Bazler WWE Elite Alexander Wolfe, Eric Young, & Nikki Cross WWE Elite Dusty Rhodes, Bob Backlund, & Sensational Sherri WWE Elite Undertaker, King Mabel, & Pat Patterson WWE RetroFest GameStop Exclusive Hacksaw Jim Duggan WWE Elite Ringside Exclusive Matt Hardy WWE Elite Bobby Lashley, Ruby Riott, & Mustafa WWE Elite Adam Cole, Kyle O'Reilly, & Bobby Fish WWE Epic Moments Ultimate Deletion Skarsgård, Vanguard 1, & Mower of Lawn WWE Series Sasha Banks, Daniel Bryan, & Sonya Deville Mattel WWE Retro Series 8 Braun Strowman, Zack Ryder, Jeff Hardy & Iron Sheik Figures WWE Entrance Greats Goldberg & Elias WWE WrestleMania Axxess/WWE Shop Exclusive Asuka WWE Battle Pack Becky Lynch & Charlotte Flair WWE Battle Pack Samir Singh & Sunil Singh WWE Battle Pack Curtis Axel & Bo Dallas WWE Elite 63 Shelton Benjamin WWE Elite 64 Curt Hawkins WWE Elite AJ Styles & Finn Bálor WWE Series 90 Ronda Rousey Which figures are you most excited for?
  14. Review By: Robert Greenwood He came from 200,000 leagues from the bottom of the sea on a tidal wave from the South China Sea to the sands of Waikiki. A predator and a scavenger of the Seven Seas with a taste of destruction in his jaws, he is the biggest maneater alive. Heroes of WCW tremble in fear when the first monster of the dungeon of doom is near. SHARK ATTACK SHARK ATTACK SHARK ATTACK!!!!! Mattel has once again delivered on one amazing and unique wrestling figure. The Shark aka John Tenta. As figures go, this Elite has captured not only the goofy/cartoonish look of the outfit and facepaint but honestly captured John "the Shark" Tenta's face to the T. Absolutely authentic to this future Hall of Famer, from his ponytail to his body structure, this is from heel to forehead the Shark! Let's go over the actual meat and potatoes. He comes packed with only one accessory which is a removable headband that has inscribed on it "Attack." His wrestling gear is decked out in garish shark theme elements from his pants having literal sharks on it to his abdomen sporting an open "Jaws" inspired shark mouth that says Shark. His right forearm band is marked with Shark attack. You get the feeling they needed to push the "Shark" elements just a bit. The figure retains all the articulation you have come to expect for the Elite series, which makes him an ideal figure to display or play with. Especially if you have a Hulk Hogan figure for him to face off with. As an Elite figure goes, it's a solid 10 but as a character, The Shark will only appeal to either fans of the old days of WCW or wrestling action figure completest. Either way, Mattel has consistently delivered on not only mainstream superstars but obscure one dimensional gimmicks like The Shark. Hopefully, we can complete the dungeon of doom and recreate one of the most off-the-rails story arcs in professional wrestling history. This figure is available now on Target.com. DPCI# 087-06-0429. Thanks to the folks for providing us this figure so we could review it for you guys.

Each figure comes with a piece to create the Heartbreak Hotel set. These figures will be released as a Walmart exclusive. Be sure to check back soon for an in-depth review of the entire wave. These figures were provided by Mattel free of charge.
  16. Shown below is a in-hand image gallery for the upcoming Target exclusive WWE Elite Series The Shark figure from Mattel. This figure will be available starting on July 19. Check back soon for a full in-depth review of this figure. This figure was provided by the folks at Mattel free of charge.
  17. Review By: Robert Greenwood Retro is hip, cool and where it's at, so cashing in on all things retro is a no brainer. Walkmans are in and so are mix tapes. So for us wrestling fans, we get our hands on 90's inspired WWE Retro Action Figures from Mattel. If you aren't too familiar with these types of figures, they came out around 1990 and lasted till 1994. This time saw a huge change in the (then) WWF wrestling lineup and a change from LJN large rubber non-articulated toys to the Hasbro action feature gimmick. So now that you are caught up on the very brief history, these new Mattel figures are meant to pay homage to those early 90's ones. Thanks to Mattel, we got our hands on the New Day (Big E,Kofi Kingston and Xavier Woods), The Macho Man in his WCW “Madness” outfit, “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair in his Bill Watts era look, “The Demon” Finn Balor, Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn. Each figure has their own stand which has a sticker with their personal logo. On the back are scan codes for the WWE mobile game, Mayhem. We also received the retro ring, which is nearly identical to the vintage one. It's a little hard to imagine these figures appealing to the new younger audience or an older collector who isn't already a collector of these types of figures. But with that mindset thrown to the winds, this line is the most fun I've ever had with any wrestling figure I've owned or reviewed. I spent most of the night playing with these guys with my 6 year old daughter. She loved the action features and how much fun it is to have Ric Flair chop Xavier Woods in the chest repeatedly while yelling “Woo!”
 That is the honest truth. These toys are just too much fun and each wrestler looks amazing even in this style. You can identify each figure just from their face and design.
 The ring is essential to the play factor. On the outside, it's just a simple blue, plastic shell but with the removable stairs and announcers table, the play factor escalates rather quickly. You can recreate matches from the current roster or make your own dream matches using the legends in their old WCW scheme. In closing if you are a WWE fan or a fan of retro toys, these are worth a pickup. But if you are not and, instead, have kids, they are also a must-buy just for the play. Mattel has done a great job of making something look retro yet retain new sculpts and play elements that make it a stand out from the old figures they are based on. These figures and the ring are available for purchase at TNI sponsor Megaloplis.toys. These figures and ring were provided by Mattel free of charge for purposes of review. Check out more images for all the figures and ring below in our GALLERY!
