WWE Mattel - Elite Series 47 B Kane Review !!!

This version of Kane is my second WWE Mattel figure of the character . I mainly purchased this version of Kane because of the accessories , and not for the figure itself . The accessories that caught my attention are the removable mask with attached hair weave and the clear cube that is holding the mask . I purchased this version of Kane at a local Walmart for a discounted price of $ 17.99 .

As many of you know this is just one of several Kane variant figures in the line . Now for a look at the figure out of the packaging .

Even though as I made this purchase mainly for the accessories , the figure itself is still pretty cool also . The only thing I do not like about this Kane figure is the expression , with a smile  on his face. That expression does not match the personality of the character . I think it would have been better if the figure had the same facial expression that is on the packaging . I'm referring to the sides and corners where he looks mean and unhappy . That is the expression I think the figure should have . Other than that a nicely done figure of Kane . One major luxury of this figure is the multiple display options . It's up to you rather you want to display Kane with or without the mask . Now for some comparison shots of this Kane figure compared to an older version of an Elite WWE Kane .

Besides costume differences , it looks as if there are facial differences too other than the hair . The older Kane figure has a shaved head and no eyebrows, making him look more like a freak of nature . Whereas the newer Kane figure looks more civilized with eyebrows and a full head of hair . Same black and red color scheme in their outfits, with different designs . Now for a closer look at the accessories .

The clear cube is a very nice accessory . As you can see you can open it up with those four latches at the bottom . Also this accessory goes great with another accessory that came with another figure . Remember the Elite 47 Kevin Owens figure that came with a display table with the red cover over it ? That accessory would go along great with the cube accessory that came with this Kane . Plus the mask/hair accessory gives us the luxury of displaying other characters wearing it , Jason Jordan for example in the pics above . Plus it fits better on the older Kane figure than it does on this newer one, because the older version has no hair making a better fit . And finally, the above diorama piece is also another bonus accessory that you get with this Kane figure .
                                                                 FINAL    THOUGHTS   
(1) ARTICULATION  - No major limited points . Very well rounded articulation with the exception of upward head movement .

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

(3) WHAT  I  LIKE  BEST  ABOUT  THIS  FIGURE ? - The accessories . The figure is great too . The luxury of displaying him with or without the mask is a plus .

(4) WHAT  I  LIKE  LEAST  ABOUT  THIS  FIGURE ? - The facial expression . I feel that Kane should be looking mean to match his personality , and not smiling .

(5) WHAT  COULD  HAVE  BEEN  DONE  TO  IMPROVE  THE  FIGURE ? From a physical perspective the figure is excellent . Visually his smile should be turned into a frown or some other mean look to match the personality of the character .

(6) GRADING  SCALE - I give this figure a 9.8 out of 10 . Still a great score, the minus is for the above mentioned facial expression .

(7) FINAL  ANALYSIS - The excitement is not always there when you purchase a figure of a character that you already own in your collection . However once you open that package that feeling of no excitement transforms into pure joy as long as the figure is still a very cool toy, in which this Kane figure is , along with his accessories .
