WWE Power Slammers Wrecking Brawl Review (Mattel)

What It Is

The WWE Power Slammers Wrecking Brawl ring recreates the excitement of the WWE Money in the Bank match. This playset uses Power Slammers figures that allow kids to recreate wrestling actions of favorite WWE Superstars. The Wrecking Brawl set includes a Thunder Twisting Sheamus figure with ladder and briefcase. There are four ways to play. Before each time you play, wind up the crank on the back of the figure.

Kids can attach the briefcase to Sheamus' left hand and the chain to the figure's right hand. Set the figure on the platform on top of the playset, press the figure's head forward until it clicks, and release. Press the button on the platform to launch Sheamus into the ring and watch him swing around.

Kids can also attach Sheamus to additional Power Slammers figures, which are sold separately, and have them battle from the platform on top of the ring or from the turnbuckles on the sides of the ring. For action in the middle of the ring, attach one figure to each end of the chain and set the figures in motion.

Is It Fun?

We like the concept of the Power Slammers action figures and this playset, but we don't really like the execution. The stunts are difficult to work and don't produce the action you'd expect. The figures don't stand well on their own, and it requires a bit of force to attach the figures. Also, because you have to press each figure's head (which is also kind of difficult) to activate the movement, your hands are in the way. The directions say to press the heads forward, click the heads, and release, but the figures start moving before you can get your hands out of the way.

Who It’s For

The Power Slammers Wrecking Brawl is for ages 6 and up.
