WWE Legends, Iron Sheik & Nikolai Volkoff - Review

Mattel's WWE Legends continues to deliver fantastic versions of many of my favorite wrestlers from the '80s and '90s. But it's not always about the good guys you cheered for in your youth, it's also about the heels you hated and booed with passion. It takes a special quality to bring out those emotions in pro-wrestling fans and two of all-time best bad guys are presented in the two-pack we're reviewing today.

WWE Legends, Ultimate Warrior - Review

In the world of professional wrestling there have been many great warriors, but only one man was... ultimate.

That's right, one of the most charismatic Superstars in the history of pro-wrestling finally arrives in Mattel's exemplary collector line, WWE Legends. If there is one wrestler that can bait the non-toy buying crowd, it's definitely the Ultimate Warrior, making it just a bit more difficult for collectors to find him. Let's take a look at what he has to offer with his inaugural figure from Mattel.

Lucha Libre USA, Charly Malice - Review

The world of professional wrestling may be dominated by the juggernaut that is World Wrestling Entertainment, but they're not the only game in town and that goes for wrestling toys, too! Mattel's WWE lines are showcased often here on the Hive, but I'm not against trying out what other companies have to offer and it's not just TNA wrestling I'm talking about. Today's review takes a look at Playmates' newly released wrestling line: Lucha Libre USA: Masked Warriors.

Happy Worker, Bossman - Review

There are "Adult Collector" figures and then there are figures for adult collectors because while any kid would love to get their hands on a DCUC Superman or Batman, not many would pass those up for a figure of a gray-haired man in a business suit. But to a collector in his late 20's, this figure is a must-have for ANY collection! It's Happy Worker's Bossman!

WWE Legends, The Rock - Review

The Rock finally arrives in Mattel's fantastic WWE Legends line and unlike his previous "Entrance Greats" release, this version has the articulation collectors want! And wanted he is because he's been the hardest "Legends" figure to find at retail since the line began last summer. I found my figure at a K-mart about 15 miles from my home a week before Christmas. Let's see if he's worth the hunt!

WWE Defining Moments, Shawn Michaels - Review

A year into their license Mattel unleashes a brand new deluxe line of WWE action figures. "WWE Defining Moments" replaces the previous deluxe line, "WWE Entrance Greats", featuring the same highly-detailed entrance costumes, but adding Elite/Legends-style articulation. Are these worth the price of admission, or another line you can easily avoid? Let's find out!
