WWE Superstar - NIKKI BELLA!

WWE Basic Series #52 - Superstar #46 - Nikki Bella - Mattel 2015

I've been randomly yet compulsively collecting WWE ladies for about 5 years now.  My first figure was Kelly Kelly from Series #6 which I believe was on the shelves in Fall of 2010.  Since then I've excitedly bought every figure I've ever seen in the store. The only purchase I have ever had doubts about was the first Bella Twins 2-Pack from 2012. The figures of Nikki and Brie Bella in that set looked very odd.  Their outfits were bulky, their expressions were awkward, and overall the set was just very lackluster.  But luckily Mattel is offering resculpted versions of the Bella Twins which more than make up for the forgettable first attempt.  Brie Bella was released earlier this year and blew her previous version out of the water.  This Nikki figure has the same effect.  Her new headsculpt, her cool hat accessory, and her lack of any add-on bulk clothing makes this a fantastic apology figure.  Now if all the other toy lines would get in line with this kind of fan demand!  Let's check out Nikki Bella (Version 2!) in detail below!

The coolest thing about this Nikki figure is her hat accessory.  
It is made from a flexible rubbery plastic and can be worn in a variety of ways.

Here are a few images of  Nikki from around the web.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here she is with the Updated Brie Bella figure from this past Spring.

And with her 2010 2-pack version.

And with the whole group, old and new.



  1. Was begining to get worried about you. Glad you're back. Are you gonna be doing a Ripley review from Aliens?

    1. Haha sorry to worry you. I don't think I've ever had a 10-day gap between reviews in the almost 4 years I've been doing this. I had let my toy room get super messy, I got hooked on the Spider-Man Unlimited game on my phone, and I got sucked into binge-watching several different shows simultaneously. So, yeah, unfortunately my priorities were all messed up for a few weeks. I'm back int he swing of it now and I have a huge photoshoot planned for tomorrow night.

      I fully planned on buying the "Suspenders" Ripley, but I just haven't taken the plunge yet. I'm a fan of the movies, but I'm not always a fan of plain-clothed action figures. I'm sure I'll eventually get her though. She's way too iconic to put off for long.
