Scott Hall, aka Razor Ramon, made his debut in wrestling in 1984 and has worked in the business ever since. Razor Ramon is best remembered as part of the Golden Age of Wrestling, at a time when legends such as the Ultimate Warrior, Big Boss Man, Shawn Michaels and others were at the top of their field. His match with Shawn Michaels at Wrestlemania X was one for the history books, which was a ladder match that he won.
Razor Ramon stands at 7″ tall and features a fabric shirt that fits over his chest and arms. The Hawaiian shirt includes flowers, and is mostly blue, with pink flowers and green leaves. The shirt closes with velcro in the front, and once on it does look a little baggy. His chest has black wash over it to indicate chest hair, and he is wearing bright pink pants to match the shirt. His head sculpt is excellent, and includes the piece of hair that’s wave in the front and the tooth pick in his mouth. The facial details are nicely done, and he has a five o’clock shadow, and black hair with a pony tail in the back. The pony tail helps keeps the collar of the shirt down as it tends to fold up. Included with Razor Ramon is his iconic necklace that is sculpted as one piece.
His articulation includes a ball jointed neck, swivel-hinged shoulders, swivel biceps, swivel-hinged elbows, swivel-hinged wrists, ball jointed torso, swivel waist, swivel-hinged hips, swivel thighs, double hinged knees, swivel boots, hinged and rocker ankles.
Overall, Razor Ramon is an excellent figure and the new fabric shirt is something different that hasn’t been offered for the character before.
