31 Days of Toy Terror Lives: Triple H from WWE Zombies by Mattel
Height: 7 inches

Non-Scalper Price: $12-$13 dollars
* I absolutely just love the design of these figures. I'm really glad that Mattel went with making these zombies actually kind of scary rather than silly or overly caricatured. I also love the skin tones. The greenish skin tone on Hunter is excellent and just works for a zombie. It makes these figures stand out without feeling overly toy-like or kid friendly.
* Most of the WWE Zombies are built just like the basic series figures which isn't a bad thing. For the price you're getting a pretty decent action figure. These guys are durable and really fun to play with, even if they are missing the more articulated legs of the Elite figures. For a zombie figure, I doubt you'll miss things much.
* This headsculpt is... it's amazing! Oh my gosh! The skull! That skill is incredible! And the bits of loose flesh and broken jaw pieces? And the flesh ripped from his neck revealing his muscles? This guy is incredible. Frigging incredible! What's funny is that while Triple H has a very prominent nose, zombie Triple H has no nose at all.
* Check out the tear on the flesh on Triple H's leg! Yikes! I love how gruesome these figures can be. Mattel really didn't pull to many punched with these, did they? That paint work is excellent with a variety of colors used to help the grotesque detailing stand out!
* Turn Hunter HEARSE Helmsley (wouldn't it be cool if the packaging called him that?) around and you can not only see the HHHs on his elbow pads and trunks but but also more of the rips and tears on the back of his right thigh. The printing is really neat and clean and looks awesome.
* I'm really impressed that these figures have accessories and Triple H's is one of the coolest: His skull adorned crown with an iron cross on the front. It's a cool accessory and really gives the figure a different look. I'm not sure whether I like the figure better with or without it but I'm glad it's included nonetheless.
If you're looking for another figure of Triple H, I reviewed the Series 35 Elite figure, too!
