WWE Defining Moments Bret "Hitman" Hart

He's the Best there is, the Best there was and the Best there ever will be. He's Bret "Hitman" Hart.

Bret Hart is one of my favourite wrestlers. I really took to him after watching the 1993 King of the Ring. I saw him before in previous tag team and singles matches but it was those three matches that left a strong impression.

Out of the package, Bret is all set to make his entrance. He's got his shades and jacket on. The jacket is really nice. Its soft and leather like, and the logo and lettering on the back is sharp.       

He comes with the Canadian flag. It is made of paper. You have to be really careful with it as it gets creased easily. The flag is a little loose in his hand but he can hold it decently.  

Also included is the old WWE Championship belt. Great detail on it. The design is sculpted and you can make out the wording pretty clearly. Its also real shiny. The straps buckles well and the belt fits nicely on his waist.    

On to the figure itself. Hes got a good likeness. Hes got a natural expression with a hint of a smile on his face. I especially like the hair. The few strands over his forehead are quite distinctive. There's paint rub and visible black marks on the shoulders of my figure, not happy about that. His attire is dominantly black. The pink outline and the logo on his singlet are well done. The design on his tights is cool, but the paint application for it appears and feels rough. The paint on his tights is not as glossy compared to his singlet.     

The reflective surface of his shades is just a sticker. The sides of it are already peeling off, due to it being carelessly put on.   

Articulation. His head can be rotated. His hair doesn't really hinders it and a full rotation can be done easily. There's ball and hinge shoulders, bicep swivel, single hinge elbows, swivel and hinge wrists, ab crunch, waist rotation, peg and hinge hips, upper thigh swivel, double jointed knees, swivel at the top of his boots and ankle hinge. 

Some shots of the "Excellence of Execution" in action.

This is a great figure which I'm unlikely to replace for some time.
