WWE "Asuka" Mattel Elite Series 47 Pt.2

I don't really know Asuka in the first place. I purchased the action figure because I like her colourful attire.

Asuka is a Japanese professional wrestler. She wears her Noh mask when entering the ring.

The Noh mask is beautifully painted and it can be removed from the head easily.

Unfortunately, the head sculpt likeness to the character is not good. This may be due to the facial expression which makes it hard to capture.

For overall articulation, it is very limited. Not many poses you can get from this figure. The figure has loose joints too.

Asuka's hair looks better if there are more details sculpted onto it with right colour application.

Lastly, I am very happy to get Asuka action figure as there are not many Asian wrestlers signed to WWE. You may see the box art and design here.

Actually, I find the facial sculpt close enough. The empress of tomorrow is always flamboyant in her entrance and outfit. Her wrestling technique is also top notch.

Yes Dennis, Asuka's image is outstanding and I have no doubt about her wrestling technique.
