WWE Mattel - Gorilla Monsoon Review !!!

It's great to finally have a figure of Gorilla Monsoon from the WWE Mattel line . As you can see he is a " First Time in the Line " figure and was purchased at a local Walmart for around the $ 19.99 price range.

 I think the back of the packaging noting Gorilla weighing in at 401 pounds is inaccurate . I think they are using his weight from his days as a wrestler . By the time he became a broadcaster he looks nowhere near that weight, he looks a whole lot less than 400 lbs .
 Moonsoon's multiple accessories allow for multiple display options .
 Overall Monsoon is a fun figure to have in the collection and there's quite a bit to like . The old school then WWF microphone , the luxury of changing his jackets and hands along with removable glasses makes Gorilla a worthy purchase . My only gripe however is it would have been nice if the glasses were tinted where we could see his eyes when wearing them .
 Again I also think Moonsoon's glasses should have been tinted allowing his eyes to be seen behind them to stay accurate to the real life look . I think the glasses still look nice just inaccurate to the real life look .
 Above a close up of Moonsoon without his glasses . Sorry for the blurry photo . I think the face sculpt is nicely detailed with the jowls around his chin and mouth.
 As you can see Moonsoon stands at nearly seven inches tall.
 The black tuxedo look is nice however I think I like his default purple jacket look better . Plus the default look gives him a unique look of his own .
 Monsoon's different pairs of hands also allow the luxury of displaying him with different hand gestures. In the pic above one can imagine him waving at someone or a crowd of people .
 The pose above is perfect if you want Gorilla to look as if he is being robbed or mugged on the city streets or anywhere else for the matter . However the smile on his face would ruin the pic because no one would be smiling getting robbed at gun point . So to make it look like an actual robbery attempt  it would be wise to display Monsoon with his back turned towards your camera while in this stick up pose, not seeing his smiling face . As for Moonsoon's hands that have the pointed fingers , they can be good for the very simple reason of pointing at someone or something .
 Back in the 1990s Monsoon would always be paired broadcasting matches with Bobby "The Brain" Heenan . So displaying Monsoon with any Bobby Heenan figure can bring back some hilarious memories of watching these two together .
All the two figures above need is any broadcast booth to recreate their time together on television .
                                                       FINAL    THOUGHTS  
( 1 )  ARTICULATION  LIMITS   -  Limited  upper and lower head movement . Other than that well rounded articulation .

(2) STANDING  ABILITY  -  He stands well when positioned properly .

(3) WHAT  I  LIKE  BEST  ABOUT  THIS  FIGURE  ?-  There's lots to like. The luxury of finally having a figure of Gorilla Moonsoon is good by itself . However the extra hands and jacket allow for multiple display options .

(4)  WHAT  I  LIKE  LEAST  ABOUT  THIS  FIGURE ? - No dislikes .

(5)  WHAT  COULD  HAVE  BEEN  DONE  TO  IMPROVE  THE  FIGURE  ? - The glasses should have been clear with a light tint , allowing us to see his eyes behind them . Because in real life Gorilla wore tinted glasses, however this action figure makes it look as if he's wearing dark shades instead of tinted glasses . As previously mentioned , the tinted look would have been better to stay accurate to the real look .

(7) GRADING  SCALE  -  Despite my gripe about the glasses I still give this figure a PERFECT TEN . No flaws plus there's quite a bit to like . The glasses may be inaccurate to his true look but they still look good however .

(8)  FINAL   ANALYSIS  -   I'm looking forward to seeing more old school WWE characters from the 1990s and earlier as figures . Rather they be wrestlers, managers, announcers, etc .
