Availability: July 2018
Debrah Ann Miceli aka Alundra Blayze or Madusa was part of the golden age of Wrestling having made her debut in 1984. During her tenure run, she worked in both the WCW and WWF. She is best remembered as holding the WCW World Cruiserweight Championship and being the first woman to accomplish this.
Alundra Blayze makes her debut into this line and stands at 6 1/4″ tall. Her head sculpt features a great likeness, and her long blonde hair with bangs in the front is nicely detailed and sculpted. She is painted in her WWF outfit, with a white tank top that has orange and yellow deco in the design of flames on her chest. The top of her tank top has her Wrestling name – Blayze painted in red. Her forearms are covered in red and white guards, red shorts, and boots that are pink in the front, white with red flames over it in the back. Her shoes are painted in a light orange, which gives her outfit many different colors all going on at once. The lines in the flames and other details are nicely done and crisp. Included is the WCW Wrestling Championship belt that is painted in pink, and a metallic gold, black and red deco.
Her articulation includes a ball jointed neck, swivel-hinged shoulders, swivel biceps, swivel-hinged elbows, swivel wrists, ball jointed torso, swivel waist, ball jointed hips, swivel thighs, double hinged knees, swivel calves, hinged and rocker ankles.
Overall, Alundra Blayze is an excellent figure with a great likeness to the character. The paint applications came out great and we especially love the attention to detail on this as well as the included Championship belt.
