This Summer Rae figure became a minor obsession for me this summer. I first found her in Target many months ago but I had to pass because her hair wasn't attached properly. Then every month I would spot another.. only to find a major defect on each one. Eventually I found her in this small Mom & Pop Hardware store (where I happened to hit toy paydirt and felt really cool being the giddy nerd with a giant armload of toys while everyone around me was buying mulch and powertools haha). So, yeah, I finally found a decent figure after much effort. The figure is unfortunately a little bland. The likeness to Summer is off-point and the tasseled thigh-highs really hinder her poseability. In googling for Summer's bio I learned that she was a former football player for the Chicago Bliss team of the Lingerie Football League. This raised so many questions for me. It seemed way too sexist to be true. Luckily in 2013 they overhauled their image, put on some clothes, and renamed it the Legends Football League.
This is going to be a quick photo post without much preamble. I spent a ton of money on toys today and I'm excited to open and photograph them all. Let's check out Summer Rae below!
Time for some Comparison Pics!
