The Ringside Collectibles exclusive Bret Hart, based loosely on his look from the '93 Royal Rumble, arrived today.  For the most part, he's great, although Matty didn't get all the details right.  The worst offense, of course, is the GIANT knee pads they insist on using.  On this Hart figure, it's pretty inexcusable.  Bret wasn't wearing these Jack Swagger sleeves on his knees, he was wearing the same sized smaller pads as he wore throughout his career.  There's no reason for Mattel not to use a pink set of the smaller pads they already have on hand.  Using much smaller knee pads would have given them that all-important budget space to include the elbow pads he was wearing for the event.  I don't think he could wear the elbow pads under the jacket he's wearing in the package, but they could have packed in.  Outside of the pad issue, the only other thing that might be a turnoff is the stiff plastic used for the jacket.  It looks really good, but renders his arms and upper body pretty immobile when wearing it, so you can't get his traditional pre-match pose with Bret exposing his shoulders while showing off his WWF championship title belt . . . Oh yeah, he doesn't have one of those, either.  Thankfully I have a couple of those things around for posing.  The sculpt is same as the Defining Moments Bret, meaning it's pretty awesome.  The paint work is very well done on the jacket and tights.  Bottom line, it's a great figure of Bret Hart, one of my all-time favorite performers, with a few flaws.  Not sure I'd want to pay this much (around $34 with discount and shipping) for another Bret with the same flaws, so I hope this is the last exclusive Hart figure.
