Mattel – WWE Elite Collection Survivor Series AJ Styles Figure Review

Mattel – WWE Elite Collection Survivor Series AJ Styles Figure Review

 

Mattel is offering three new WWE Elite figures based on their appearances in the Survivor Series, and are exclusively available at Wal-Mart. This wave includes AJ Styles, Alexa Bliss and Bobby Roode. Each action figure features Elite articulation, unique accessories and True FX facial deco detail.

Thank you to Mattel for providing their WWE Elite Collection Survivor Series AJ Styles Figure for review. 

Availability: December 2018

AJ Styles is packaged in the standard window box as seen with other modern WWE Elite figures by Mattel, with images of him on the left side, and an action shot of him on the back along with a brief bio. Also shown are the other figures available in this wave.

 

AJ Styles comes in his blue attire as seen in Survivor Series, and features a removable vest that is nicely detailed and painted with blue deco on the front, along with white and black deco, and a logo on his back and left hip. The vest is made of soft plastic, and has a removable hoodie that is interchangeable with the extra one that is included, and one is folded down, and the other is raised up and goes over his head. The vest is also removable, revealing the chest hair and tattoos underneath. The pants are blue with the white and black deco making the logo, symbols and patterns. His right elbow includes an elbow pad, and he has blue gloves, each with detailed lettering including the words AJ Styles.

The elbow pad is made of soft plastic and is one piece, and if you call in WWE, AJ Styles uses an elbow pad that has a small cutout on the inside. Another drawback from this figure is that the missing knee pads as many fans have been pointing out. The phenomenal detail outweighs any missing parts of changes that could have been made however, including the logo on his chest and the dates underneath it, as well as the painted applications on his pants, gloves and vest.

 

 

His head sculpt is nicely done, and includes long blonde hair, a sculpted beard and a mustache. The hair gets in the way of the hoodie, which makes his head turn to the side a little bit.

His articulation includes a ball jointed neck, ball hinged shoulders, swivel biceps, hinged elbows, swivel-hinged wrists, ab crunch, swivel waist, ball jointed hips, swivel thighs, double-hinged knees, swivel calves, and ball jointed ankles.

Overall, AJ Styles is an excellent figure and given he’s one of the biggest names in WWE right now, you’re going to need to pick this figure up if you have the opportunity to do so. A reader let us know on social media when we posted a preview we would be reviewing new WWE figures that he was having trouble obtaining this wave of WWE Survivor Series figures, which is understandable as Wal-Mart exclusives can be rather difficult to find at times. If you come across him, make sure. grab one as you sure won’t regret it.
