A.J. Lee Returns To The Blog...For The Last Time?
If she is in fact finished, a new figure is hitting Wal Mart shelves just in time to celebrate. The figure is part of the latest series in the chain's exclusive Superstar Entrances collection. The series features WWE stars in non-removable entrance gear. The series is notable for having a die-cut "window" on the back of the packaging so that the detail on the clothing is in full view. A.J. is the first female to be part of the series.
For some reason there are a few bumps on the abs of the figure. I thought that it could have been bubbled paint in a botched job, but every example that I've seen had this issue. I did also come across some paint mishaps on the tights design, but it isn't really anything that hurts the figure overall. You can easily imagine this figure skipping to ringside. When a figure almost comes to life before your eyes simply from the design, it's a great product. Mattel has really begun to poor their all into every one of their releases--even store exclusives.
With Thanksgiving coming up, I'm glad that we had a chance to revisit my favorite "Turnbuckle Turkey" one more time. For all of the fun that I poke at her, she stood out in an era where it's increasingly hard to do so. Now she can ride...err...skip off into the sunset while still "on top."
