Minifigure Review: Ric Flair, Iron Sheik, & "Mean" Gene Okerlund from M.U.S.C.L.E.: WWE by Super7

    Woo!!! Today I'm checking out some more WWE M.U.S.C.L.E. minifigures from Super7. We've got the great humbler Iron Sheik, "Mean" Gene Okerlund (Gene Mean was the best man at the Iron Sheik's wedding!), and Ric Flair, the stylin', profilin', limousine riding, jet flying, kiss stealing, wheelin' n' dealin' son of a gun! Woo!! This is a pretty cool trio of figures and definitely a fun group to have in scale with your classic M.U.S.C.L.E. figures. Super7 has done a nice job with these minifigures which are exclusive to Ringside Collectibles. Let's check these minifigures out after the break...

 The Facts:

Height: 1 3/4ths to 1 7/8ths inches

Includes: 3 figures

Non-Scalper Price: $6 dollars
 Ric Flair

* "Diamonds are forever and so is Ric Flair." Ric Flair is a living legend, a two time WWE Hall of Famer, and a pop culture icon, so you better believe he belongs in this set. Super7 captured him in one of his glorious looking robes complete with his glorious blonde locks. Is this the Space Mountain of M.U.S.C.L.E. figures? You be the judge!
 Iron Sheik

* The Iron Sheik is another true living legend and, my gosh, he will break your back and make you humble. Super7 did a great job of capturing his likeness and his attitude in this figure. He's definitely one of the best in this set.
 "Mean" Gene Okerlund

* Dang, this set is full of legends, isn't it? Now we've got "Mean" Gene Okerlund, a figure that not only pays tribute to a classic announcer but also pays tribute to the announcer figure from the classic M.U.S.C.L.E. line. Figures like this are fun to add some more color and drama to a toyline and "Mean" Gene delivers.
   Man, Ric Flair, "Mean" Gene Okerlund, and The Iron Sheik. What a trio, right? Super7 definitely has done a pretty good job with the WWE M.U.S.C.L.E. figures. It's not the best M.U.S.C.L.E. series Super7 has done but it's still a winner. I'm really liking it. This is another Great set and lots of fun and I'm anxious to check out the fourth series. I'm hoping these do well and that we see a future series with some more Superstars.

   These are the first toys of Ric Flair, The Iron Sheik, and "Mean" Gene Okerlund that I've reviewed. For more M.U.S.C.L.E. reviews, check out the following:
