I wanted to give a massive thank you to Mattel for sending us this very generous review sample! You can purchase WWE figures now at out sponsor Megalopolis.Toys.



The 16 time world heavyweight champion, the WWE Hall of Famer is here with one of my personal favorite figures! This particular release is from the Gamestop exclusive line of the popular Retrofest series. This figure release is from Flair's run as the WWF world heavyweight champion, and feud with the Macho Man Randy Savage as Flair had been terrorizing Savage along with the lovely Miss Elizabeth. They went head to head at Wrestlemania 8 with the Macho Man ultimately defeating Flair to recapture the gold.



The line features several classic superstars from the 80's and 90's. The box features a very unique design in which the box resembles a classic video game cab. The font is is the same font used in the Golden Era and features the classic blocked logo, minus the "F" in the logo for obvious reasons. On the back of the box features the Nature Boy's highlights and stats in cool video game lettering. Once unboxed, the figure feels very premium and solid in hand.

The robe is a soft goods cloth robe which is very fitted. It can be removed if needed. The robe has an intricate pattern on the front and back in silver with "Ric Flair" on the back.



The scan is fantastic as it captures that classic smug look that only Ric Flair could give! The hair sculpting was also beautifully done. Flair's golden locks look great, even in action figure form! A small detail that was not skipped by Mattel was Flair's dark colored eye brows.



On some other figures in the past made by other toy companies, it seemed like they could never achieve the accurate color of his brows on figure form. Such a small detail, but as a collector and massive Ric Flair fan it was certainly appreciated! The color of his trunks, boots, and knee pads are red and the "RF" logos on the side of his trunks and side of his boots are white.



The back of his knee pads are a pink shade, which adds more realism and attention to detail. While the front remains a solid red. While this is an absolute amazing figure, there is one glaring drawback. I would have chosen a different torso mold.



Flair was always in great shape, but he never had a body builder physique with abs. A slightly thicker torso mold would have been more appropriate.



This figure release is a must have for any old school fan of the 80's and 90's wrestling, or even a new era fan that is discovering Flair matches on the WWE Network for the very first time!



I would rate this figure a 9.5/10



All around fantastic figure with extras, detail, unique packaging, and all the bells and whistles that Ric Flair deserves. Once again, a big thank you to Mattel for this review sample!

That's an excellent likeness. I'm not sure they quite got his hair right, but it does look very good in some of your pics there.
