Mattel Defining Moments Surfer Sting

Sometimes a rumored figure sounds great, but then doesn't exactly live up to the hype.  For me, Elite 39 Sycho Sid fit that bill and I did not even end up purchasing it.  We have the latest entry in that category with Mattel's Defining Moments Surfer Sting.

The attire looks sharp and all that, but the moment I look at that figure all I see is that goofy head sculpt. I can't look past it. It is literally all I see. I cannot quite put my finger on what exactly it is that it reminds me of, but that mouth/teeth sculpt is horrendous.

In general the Mattel WWE line is fantastic and has been a vast improvement in figure quality from the Jakks Pacific line. This figure is a huge miss though which is disappointing, but good news for my wallet I suppose.
