Review By Robert Greenwood
Who is a part of the Series 61 set? Who? Who? Who? None other than Mr Booty-O’s himself, Big E.
What can we say about the “Powerhouse” of The New Day? Well firstly, this figure is without a doubt energetic to a fault. Big E either looks utterly scared or extremely psychotic. Trying to capture an expression that is only seen on the packaging might seem a bit unnecessary. Maybe in the right angle, this face is something Big E would make? Face scans like this make me wish this was on a figure that would be more gimmicky, something like the Retro figures line. Not so much on an Elite Series. Or, have him packed with a second normal expression.
The entrance gear is identical to what Big E wears and looks perfect on him. He is massive, as rightfully he should be. His arms seem a bit thin, since Big E is a beast and his arms are no joke in real life.
The paint apps are great and it’s important to have Big E in the Elite collection. New day is one of the most over factions in wrestling today, so Big E will be a most sought after figure. His ring gear has so much flexibility and super vibrant, just like all of the members of The New Day have.
His build-a-display is fine, but like I've mentioned before, they connect together and it seems to be a bit of a waste of time to connect to make the artwork come together. I will once again state, I wish they had either official logos on the display or a static image from the TitanTtron.
Also, if you don't get all the figures, you will have an incomplete background.
Other than that, Big E was so much fun to photograph, even with the silly expression. Kids and adult collectors will have more fun playing with and/or displaying this figure. He is well made, perfect paint apps and a key member of WWE Tag Team Division and, I believe, a figure you will not want to pass up.
This figure is currently available for pre-order by Mattel on the Amazon SummerSlam Section
. Thanks to Mattel for providing this figure free of charge for review. Check out images for the Elite Series wave 61 figures which include Big E below.
