WWE Mattel Nia Jax Review !!!

I've been wanting this figure of Nia Jax ever since I saw a pic of it. The figure arrived at Ringside Collectibles in May of this year, however it is the month of August where I finally get a Nia Jax figure. Reason being, I was trying to find her in person with no luck. I searched Walmarts, Targets, Walgreens, Toys R Us with no luck. Finally I got sick of the chase and decided to order her online . I wanted to avoid buying from the internet because of the wait time and shipping. However I got lucky as the price on her at Ringside Collectibles dropped tremendously . Probably because she is a Basic figure and not an Elite , even tough she looks as if she can pass as an Elite . I purchased this figure of Nia Jax at Ringside Collectibles at . I'm not giving the price because they change prices on figures almost constantly . So I do not want to give you a number that may be soon changed .

As you can see Nia is a " First Time in the Line " figure . Since she is a Basic figure there is no bio or statistics on the back of the packaging . There is another figure of Nia, same figure although the difference is one Nia figure comes with a trophy and the other does not . As you can see I purchased the version with no accessories . Now for a look at the figure out of the packaging . 

Unlike most of the other WWE Mattel female figures , Nia is totally new with all new parts and a new body mold. No reused parts with this figure . Plus she is the first plus-sized female figure to be made for this line . I love this figure. She is awesome. Nice outfit too with a black leathery look and purple trimmings . I love the shoulder pads and the hip pads, Mattel did a great job of making her body look realistic just like her face. I think Nia is now my favorite WWE Mattel female figure. At least for now . Plus it's great to own a plus sized female figure, as you can display her in poses where she can toss the other female figures around the ring like rag dolls . Speaking of other female figures, below are comparison shots of Nia next to two of them . 

Above Nia is standing next to Alicia Fox and Paige . Even though Nia is a plus-sized woman, she does not totally tower over most of the other female figures height wise . Nia is listed at an even 6 feet tall , whereas the average WWE Divas are like around the 5"7 through 5"9 range . So Nia has a height advantage over most of her opponents but not a super huge advantage in height . Now weight on the other hand , that's a different story . This is what really separates her from the other women . Nia is also listed at 240 on Google, but Wikipedia has her listed at 272 lbs . Whichever one is correct, she is still much bigger than the average WWE Diva . Speaking of size, let's see how Nia compares to a few of the male figures .

In the first two male figure comparison pics for Nia, she stands next to her 6"5 cousin known as the Rock . As you can see she is at even height with John Cena, who is the same height as she . In the final above pic, you can see that Nia not only is taller than the 5"6 Kalisto but is also much bigger . This Nia Jax figure just made history in the WWE Mattel franchise , and this pick proves it . The history I'm referring to is " that the Nia Jax figure is the FIRST WWE Mattel female figure to be bigger in both height and weight than some of the males . Now for a look at one of her finishing moves action figure style .
If you go to Nia Jax's Wikipedia profile , you'll see that she has four finishing moves at the time of this writing . The one above is my best attempt at her getting ready to deliver a " Pop-up Samoan Drop" .
                                                 FINAL   THOUGHTS  
(1) ARTICULATION  -  The only part of Nia's articulation that seems limited is upward head movement . She can look downward pretty well .

(2) STANDING  ABILITY - She stands very well with no balance issues .

(3) WHAT  I  LIKE  BEST  ABOUT  THIS  FIGURE ? - It's nice to have a plus size female competitor for a change. She can overpower the other women with her size and strength . Plus Nia just flat out looks cool , outfit and all .

(4) WHAT  I  LIKE  LEAST  ABOUT  THIS  FIGURE ? - There is nothing that I dislike about this figure .

(5) WHAT  COULD  HAVE  BEEN  DONE  TO  IMPROVE  THIS  FIGURE ? No improvements needed .

( 6) GRADING  SCALE - A Perfect 10 . Excellent action figure . I could find nothing to complain about .

(7) FINAL  ANALYSIS - If Mattel ever make future versions of Nia in some of her alternate outfits, I just may buy them , adding more Nia Jax figures to the collection . She's so cool I would not mind them making more figures of her .
