WWE MATTEL - The Natural Disasters EarthQuake and Typhoon Review !!

Even though these two figures did not come together in a package, as do many of the WWE Mattel tag teams come separately . Typhoon and Earthquake are formerly known as the tag team called the Natural Disasters . The Earthquake figure is mainly a re-paint, as you will see. I purchased both of these figures at a local Walmart for around the $ 19.99 price range . First we'll have a look at Earthquake.

I'm not going to spend too much time reviewing Earthquake in this review because as mentioned he is mainly a repaint of his original action figure which I've already reviewed . As you can see, the only differences other than a new outfit, is that the original has no knee pads whereas the newer Quake does. Plus the accessories they come with. Original Quake came with Jake "the snake" Roberts pet snake and a bag whereas the newer Quake comes with a tag team championship belt . If you missed the review of the original Earthquake figure , here it is in the following link - .
Now on to Typhoon .

The man known as Typhoon also had other aliases .  He was also known as Tugboat and the Shockmaster . Both of the Natural Disaster figures seemed to have been slimmed down just a little bit compared to the actual real life men. However they both look cool and do not share all of the same body parts despite being similar in size . Pay attention when putting both figures side by side and you'll notice that Typhoon's arms are bigger than Earthquake's arms . Now for a look at the two figures together.

Look closely and you'll notice as mentioned that Typhoon has different arms. Different bigger arms. Other than that difference it looks like they share the same other body parts . The only accessory they both come with are the championship belts .
                                                       FINAL   THOUGHTS 

(1)  ARTICULATION - The only points of articulation that seems limited on both of these figures is the up and down head movement . Other than that the rest of the articulation is very good.

(2) STANDING  ABILITY - Both figures stand really well with no balance issues .

(3) WHAT  I  LIKE  BEST  ABOUT  BOTH OF  THESE  FIGURES ? - Just the luxury of having these guys in the collection . I've wanted action figures of these guys ever since the WWE Mattel line started, so to finally have them is somewhat of a dream come true. A terrific successful big man tag team that dominated the other teams with their massive size and strength .

(4) WHAT  I  LIKE  LEAST  ABOUT  THESE  FIGURES ? - There's nothing to dislike for me .

(5) WHAT  COULD  HAVE  BEEN  DONE  TO  IMPROVE  THESE  FIGURES ? - Make them the actual exact same size as the real life men . The figures seem to be just a little slimmer than the real guys. However I am not bothered by this they still look cool regardless .

(6) GRADING  SCALE - A PERFECT 10 for both !!! Very pleased with both figures.

(7) FINAL  ANALYSIS - It feels great to finally have one of the biggest ( literally ) tag teams in WWE history in the collection . Not only were they big, strong and tough but were also champions, as the proof is with the figures because of the championship belts.
