Packaging - ***
The packaging on the Unchained Fury series is a
new packaging with a rather eye catching red color. This color, along with
the chain image on the side, makes these figures stand out from the other
WWE figures on the shelf right now.
Sculpting - ***1/2
As the norm with the WWE titan tron type figures, the body here is sculpted.
Though the lower body and arms are perfect for Booker T, the torso is a poor
choice for Booker T. I feel that a less “ripped”, possibly, Kurt Angle
torso would have been a better choice for “The Book”.
Unlike, Michael Crawford, I personally love the real
scan heads, as these are a huge step above the old WWF sculpted head, just
compare Titan Tron Series 3 to Titan Tron series 4, the first real scan set
to see how improved the likeness on the figures have become, and in
Booker’s case this could never be more true. The face is one of the best
scans ever done by Jakks Pacific, and compares extremely well to the source
Paint - **1/2
For once, the paint application of this WWE
figure is actually extremely good as the color on the body matches
perfectly. All the white areas match as well. The paint on the face is
exceptionally well for a WWE figures. The beard is exceptionally applied
well. Despite all the positives in the paint application, there is still the
draw back of some bleeding on the boots, the tight design on the back of the
tights, and finally, the earrings.
Articulation - ***1/2
The only drawback to this figure is the fact that the
right knee is very loose on my figure, as well as many other people’s
figures. This is believed to be due to the way the figure was packaged in
the box. Due to this weak joint, I deduct half a point from the total score.
After being treated to only 5 joints on a bone crunching action figure a few
years back, the titan tron figures are articulated exceptionally well with
articulation at the wrists, elbows, heads, ball jointed shoulders, the neck,
waist, hips, ankles, and finally the knees.
Accessories - ***
As do all the figures in the Unchained Fury line,
the action figures all come with appropriate, and not over the top
accessories. Along with a pair of elbow and knee pads, this figure comes
with a travel suitcase. This accessory isn’t released that often, and thus
is a welcome addition to the figure.
Value - ***
This figure is one of the best WWE figures in
years and is well worth the $10 I paid when I ordered it off the internet.
Recently, the figure is retailing for 9 dollars at KB and Toys R Us and for
this price, I would definitely pick this figure up.
