With Bray already examined, this time we're looking at his flunkies, Luke Harper and Erick Rowan. As was the case with Bray, these are the second releases of Harper and Rowan. The two were initially released in "Basic" form in a two-pack. Although Bray's rocking chair was first packaged in that set, to get the full Wyatt accessory experience you had to wait for the Elite releases of all three men.
I've mentioned the "King Kong Bundy LJN Effect" before, but it bears a repeat explanation. The WWF King Kong Bundy figure produced by LJN was an immense hunk of rubber. I'm sure that more than one child got quite the headache by being hit with it at the hands of another kid over the years. The fact of the matter is, it was heavy and you truly felt like you got your money's worth. The Elite Harper and Rowan resemble this phenomenon. Not only are the figures themselves huge compared to many of the Mattel WWE figures, but they are packaged with some great accessories.
The Wyatt Family has become known for their various iconic props. Bray's rocking chair and lantern are here, as is Rowan's sheep mask. The chair comes disassembled with an easy to follow instruction sheet. Once assembled, the chair is surprisingly sturdy and detailed. For the child who wants to play "the wrestlers go to Cracker Barrel," all that is needed is a figure-sized fabric game of checkers. Bray's lantern has a glow-in-the-dark piece of plastic in the center. I have had no luck whatsoever with glow-in-the-dark action figure accessories since the 1980's, so reporting that I was unable to get it to work doesn't hold much ground.
If you want the Wyatt figures, these Elite versions are the ones to get. As we've previously covered, there are versions in the "Basic" line already, but they do not include any of the accessories aside from the rocking chair. There are more versions coming in the next year, but it's not confirmed which, if any, of the accessories will be included. I would play it safe and get these initial Elite releases. Why wait around for future releases when the best ones are already available?
