Stephen Amell to face Stardust and King Barrett at SummerSlam, so I guess you could put him with your Arrow figures if you wanted to. Ready for a closer look at this new high-flying Superstar? Then join me after the break...
Articulation: Lateral ankle rockers, hinged ankles, boot swivels, double
hinged knees, swivel thighs, ball jointed hips, swivel waist, mid-torso
hinge, swivel/hinge shoulders, swivel biceps, hinged elbows,
swivel/hinge wrists, and a ball jointed head.
Accessories: Entrance cape
Non-Scalper Price: $20 dollars
* The one thing that gets a little old with reviewing Mattel's WWE figures is that their articulation is incredibly consistent. Of course, that's not a bad thing at all as that means Neville is well articulated, sturdy, and a ton of fun to play with. Have fun making this guy fly around your ring like a British Spider-Man.
* This is Neville. Seriously, this is a pretty good likeness. Neville has very angular features (my wife says chiseled might be a better word, but I'm not so sure) and had a lot of character to his face and Mattel just nailed. Neville kind of sounds like and looks like a wizard, and to be honest I totally dig it. If he comes back with a wizard styled gimmick I'd be down with it.
* Neville's outfit is pretty cool. I tend to wear a lot of black and purple myself so I'm absolutely digging Neville's outfit. The purple and white stripes on his boots look really cool and the bright purple trunks definitely make a statement. Also, take note of his cool gray knee pads which are indeed separate pieces.
* Neville has an incredibly cool entrance and Mattel has included his entrance cape to help you reenact it. I'm going to talk about the cape in the negatives because honestly I'm not a big fan of how it turned it out but I do want to point out the cool printing on the cape. The purple color this is molded in and the black and white logo just look stunning.
* Mattel made a terrible choice to not give Neville an actual soft goods cloak. Imagine how cool this would have been if he could pose wearing it, perhaps even utilizing the hood? That would have been a stellar accessory. As it stands, this thing barely lets the figure move his arms, something that I consider highly unfortunate. Yeah, it's his entrance cape, but you really cannot even reenact Neville's entrance with it.
*I kind of wish Neville came with one of those cool aerial action stands that Kalisto came with as it really works for his in-ring antics, too.
