Wrestling figures have come a long way in the past few years. I've talked before about the big shift happening when Mattel got the WWE license in 2010. Suddenly Jakks Pacific had some serious competition, and all of us collectors reaped the benefits. Jakks wrestling figures were nothing to scoff at before. I'm sure wrestling fans were ecstatic at the quality, just like comics fans were on cloud nine during the first few years of Marvel Legends.. But for a casual collector of wrestling figures like I am, they just didn't have the Wow factor that makes be buy an unknown figure purely out of aesthetics. Lately though, I'm totally into Jakks figures. Gail Kim is the second Impact Wrestling lady I have reviewed and I suspect I'll be hunting down many more in future waves. This figure isn't a fantastic representation of Gail, but it's pretty recognizable. Plus it's always nice to get some ethnic diversity in the mix (I think I might have to skip the next blonde caucasian wrestler in protest). Let's check her out below!
Gail shares identical articulation with Velvet Sky. The sculpt is nearly identical except for the head and lower legs.
Time for a Comparison Pic!
