Everybody has a price for the Million Dollar Man
! This is the WWE Mattel Flashback Series basic Million Dollar Man Ted Dibiase
action figure from Mattel
! You get the classic Ted Dibiase
in a molded on suit.
Dibiase was always known for his flashy persona and unique looks he wore inside the ring.
The basic line is known for a scaled back version of the elite line.
The basics have lesser points of articulation and not as extensive deco in terms of the outfits or accessories.
But this should not sway you from considering to purchase the basic line as well. Mattel went all out for such a classic villain such as the Million Dollar Man!
The color Mattel used on the green suit is very much how I recall Dibiase wearing this particular suit back during his run in the WWF.
He has dollar signs on the front side of his jacket as well as a giant dollar sign on the backside of his suit jacket.
He has silver lines going down each side of his suit trousers.
While the posing and articulation is very much limited, this piece still looks fantastic and feels very solid in hand.
My only minor complaint would be for Mattel to have a laughing head scan or have a face scan with a scowl rather than an expressionless look.
Dibiase was certainly hated by the fans and had a larger than life personality, so thats the only thing I would modify.
With this line of basics you get the chance to build a figure when you collect four separate figures. With the Million Dollar Man you get the torso.
Once completed you can build a suited classic ring announcer Howard Finkel. This gives you a great incentive to purchase the remainder of figures to complete such a cool legend. I would have to give this basic Ted Dibiase a 8.5 out of 10. Im am only
docking points for the weak face scan. But even with this drawback, you should still highly consider picking this up for your collection!
