* One of the things I really like about Mattel's WWE line is that pretty much everything they release is in the same scale and style. While a metal mutant Cena might seem crazy alongside normal figures, the scale, style, and build are all compatible. I wish more companies (and Mattel's DC team) would take note of this. Cyber-Cena is very sturdy and well made; my 3 year old loves playing with him and I have no fear of her damaging him.
* So...this is essentially John Cena with a metallic torso, his regular ring gear (sweat bands and jorts), and a metallic championship. It's almost like what you'd get if John Cena jointed the Metal Men. Again, this is just a silly concept that I just love it. It's not for everyone, but if it is then you know who you are.
* I like the likeness. It's not just a simple silver painted John Cena; Mattel actually resculpted the head to have different features and a more robotic looking hairsculpt with sharper definition between the top and the sides.
* To aid him in delivering the Five Moves of Doom, Cena is sporting a solid metal spine. This is actually a really cool sculpt with some nice paintwork to bring out the details.
* The paintwork is incredible simple, but I do like the fact that Cena is sporting a WWE Championship. I mean, the guy is a 16 time champion, so the presence of the title absolutely makes sense. To be honest, I'd love to see him hit 17 at some point. Love him or hate him, you gotta respect John Cena.
* Cena features two wrist bands and a sweat band on his shoulder, all of which some of his trademark slogans. There's an OK symbol, "Never Give Up" and a "U
* Cena's championship strap just kind of ends on the back of the figure. I'm guessing someone didn't thing to sculpt it on the back. What an odd decision that really shows a problem with the direction of the figure.
* The other problem I have with this guy is the absence of bicep swivels. Typically even Mattel's basic figures feature bicep swivels but, when they're absent, you realize how much motion they give you. I hate that they're missing.

Oh, and here's a picture of Cena's WWE Championship taken by my daughter! She's becoming a regular contributor, isn't she?
