Paige released earlier this year, a figure that I was kind of iffy about. Today I'm giving Paige a second go around. Have my thoughts on this sculpt changed much in the past few months? Join me after the break and find out....
Height: 6 1/2 inches
Articulation: Hinged ankles, boot swivels, hinged knees, swivel thighs,
T-bar hips, swivel waist, ball jointed mid-torso, swivel/hinge
shoulders, swivel biceps, hinged elbows, swivel wrists, and a ball
Non-Scalper Price: $10
* While the Divas figures don't have the same level of articulation as the Superstars, what is interesting is that the basic Divas have the same articulation as the Elite Divas. For $10 there really is a nice amount of articulation here. Paige is nice and sturdy and feels like she's ready to put Charlotte through the ringer. Seriously, what's with Paige always facing opponents who cheat? Even as a bit of a heel right now, Paige is still facing a cheater!
* The paint work on Paige's outfit is pretty sharp. It's mostly black but the silver highlights on her top and shorts look really good. I also really love the Paige "P" logos on her gloves. She doesn't have painted nails like the previous figure, but these look really cool.
* While the eyes are much better than on the first figure, I still don't think this is a great Paige likeness. Mattel tried
as there are some distinctive elements of Paige's face here such as the
dimple on her chin and the stud below her right lip, but I think the
problem here is that they tried too hard to add so many details that, due
to the scale of the figure, it makes the face look unrecognizable. This
just doesn't look like Paige to me.
* If you look closely, you'll notice that rather than give Paige a uniquely sculpted top Mattel just painted Paige's top over a standard bikini top piece. Considering this figure largely reuses everything from the Elite #34 Paige, this seems like kind of a cheap move.
This is Mattel's second Paige figure. I've also reviewed the first version of Paige from Elite series 34.
