WWE Shawn Micheal Action Figure








I love 'HBK' Heart-Break-Kid 'Shawn Michael' and till today he has a strong placing in my heart as a great WWE idol after Hulk Hogan. I started following HBK's matches since the time he was introduced as tag-team wrestler 'The Midnite Rockers'. HBK thrills audiences with his committed performance and good looks. He's one of those pioneer wrestlers with high risk flying maneuvers, elbow from the top rope and stunning finishing 'Sweet Chin Music'. HBK's entry song 'Sexy Boy' also is one of the catchiest and electrifying. HBK has got guts and I really admire his stubborness to stand up against bigger and tougher opponent. Even though when he was hit badly, he would continue to gesture his opponent to bring it now. Always remember the cheering his received whenever he somersault and flipped up from the floor. It's a triumphant to have this action figure of Shawn Michael. Mattel did a fairly good job on this figure with close likeness to HBK's facial features, his tattoo and overall physical appearance. The trunks are also the exact design of what HBK had worn during his late career. What a deserving WWE Hall-of-Framer!

although the Mattel WWF figures has a very good sculpt & paint job, i still prefer those of Jakks Pacific & i saw in person recently, one special edition of the Undertaker with a full size replica (OFC not in leather) of his famous hat, very interesting for WWF’s fans... what i cannot understand is why Mattel doesn’t give these figures the chest articulation ??? i mean, they use that articulation for all figures in their DC lines for a reasonable price... this would b a notorious improvement =)

I remember Jakks Pacific started producing WWE figures before Mattel took over the rights. It's no double that Jakks Pacific made good figures but some were no very proportional and looks bulky even for wrestlers who are supposed to be light-weight. I agreed that Mattel has the capability in improving the articulation and like you say, they probably did try hard enough.

Welcome to memory lane of wrestling. Oh yes, it's entertainment but captivating.

My favourites would still have to be Brett the Hitman Hart and Ultimate Warrior. Though the Rockers were also close to my heart with their acrobatic maneuveres and stylish flying moves.

No doubt that Brett the Hitman Hart and Ultimate Warrior are also great wrestlers of our time. I like Ultimate Warrior well his flame-up shaking the rope. Brett the Hitman Hart awesome and I love the match between him and HBK (The Ironman match). It to see Brett the Hitman Hart returned to WWE as guest referee couple of weeks back still executing his sharp shooter.

I really love this kind of entertainment sport too,, if I recall my favourite was Hardy brothers before they separated.

Sweet Chin Music!! XD
Its very much nostalgic in a sense than his opponents will be dazed while pumps and pumps up for his signature move. LOL

Ha! Ha! Very typical during HBK's match but yeah it's usually at the climate of the match.
