Wrestling New Arrivals
DOC GALLOWS & KARL ANDERSON SUPER 7 ULTIMATES FIGURES
Last time, I reviewed the new Super 7 figures of Brian Myers and Matt Cardona. That same company also put out new figures of the Good Brothers, Doc Gallows & Karl Anderson, which recently arrived as well.
Much like the Myers and Cardona figures, the Good Brothers figures are highly detailed and are loaded with accessories. Doc Gallows wears a camouflage vest and pants. Multiple hands are included, along with four different heads (different expressions and one is wearing a baseball hat). Karl Anderson has grey tights and knee pads, along with black boots. His figure includes multiple hands and four heads as well. Both figures also include a beer can. If I have a complaint, it’s the faces for Doc Gallows. Super 7 always seems to be a bit off with the faces and this set is no exception. The Gallows faces kind of look like Anderson to me.
As with all Super 7 Ultimates figures, the packaging is top notch. Each figure includes an outer brown box, a fancy second box inside, and the figures are showcased in a nice clear package for display. Even though they are pricey (the Good Brothers go for $44.99 or $47.99), if you are a big enough fan of this team, it’s almost worth getting a set for display and a set to take out of the box. You can find these top level figures at ringsidecollectibles.com, entertainmentearth.com, and bigbadtoystore.com.
