Mattel just revealed some new images of WWE Elite 71 and it’s another home run set with more incredible likenesses and welcome new accessories. With Elite 70 and now this wave, Mattel is really cranking out some good modern offerings for current day collectors.
The Fearless One gets her first Elite in awhile. It’s too bad Nikki doesn’t get the updated female Elite articulation on the knees as those old clunky ones don’t provide nearly enough movement. Still, it’s a nice enough looking figure that I might consider it.
Soccer Dad Cena gets an update and while I hate that haircut, it’s a nice modern Cena. Naturally I like the T-shirt and U Can’t See Me hands.
I think the lighter hair is throwing the likeness off somewhat and the leg sleeves look bad here, but with some adjustments this would make for a great figure especially with the debut of the NXT North American championship belt.
This might be the winner of the set. I like the various heads, which provide some facepaint options and the rag in the pocket.
Drew is another winner and the alternate head sculpt is terrific.
While I hate his ring attire, this is going to make for a great Kings of Wrestling version of Chris Hero.
I’ve got a soft spot for Paige as she really helped kick off the Women’s Revolution and I dig this look for her.
The Big Show
Our lone Flashback isn’t a perfect Unholy Alliance version of Big Show, but it has the necessary head sculpt, which is all I wanted.
