We here at Toyark don’t focus on wrestling figures very often, there are a ton of great sites out there and we aren’t into the lines full on at a personal level. Every once and a while though Mattel drops a gem and we pay attention. I’ve been looking for a Stone Cold figure to slip into the all purpose shelves for a while, and the recent Defining Moments figure hit the spot. I was lucky enough to find one in the wild so let’s take a look at him after the break as he stunners through the rest of my super hero shelves. :)
Defining Moments Stone Cold Steve Austin
Good solid Stone Cold fig
Jacket and tattoo paint apps crisp
Awesome set of belts
I can’t really compare this Stone Cold to any others, never had em. All I know is it was above average for the other multiple tiers of Mattel WWE figures, and it does the job representing the Texas Rattlesnake in my collection. The quality and articulation was higher than I was expecting – it allowed for a ton of cool poses. Paint was on point. Sculpt is good, captures Stone Cold’s body type and the face is above average for a mass release figure like this (without comparison to priors that is). Bonus, I personally always loved the “Circle Belt”, the one after the future Hardcore belt and before the “Skull Belt”. It was short lived but awesome. It was included here, along with the other two mentioned, and all are super well done. I wanna champ-up all my non wrestling figs with em now. They’re a far cry from scotch taping quarters and nickels and dimes together as a kid. It was a fun well done figure to run through some photos with, and that’s the bottom line, cuz Tony_Bacala said so!
