This set features the 2020 style Elite packaging with the red/white/black/silver color scheme. The box showcases the featured wrestler on one side with their name on the opposite as well as a larger image, statistics and those whom also are in the set on the back.
Not to mention Billie Kay is the Target Collector’s Edition exclusive with this set.
This is Pete’s first Elite figure released more readily as his previous Elite, Target Collector’s Edition with Elite 64, was only available at Target as one per case with Elite 64. Fans were clamoring to have him in their collection being his first figure was much harder to come by and their wish was granted much later.
That being said, Pete has a newer head sculpt with longer hair than his previous figure. He comes with the UK title as well as his black attire, including his black entrance vest. The detail on him is great, from his mouth guard to the tattoo on his kneecap. He also comes with swappable hands.
Overall, it’s a nice figure honestly and if you missed out on him the first time around I highly suggest picking this one up. Hopefully we will see more of him in the future, perhaps with the NXT tag title or something. Regardless, this is another great figure of him and with the UK title you can’t pass it up!
Hurricane has two figures in this series, one being the Chase variant. This is Hurricane’s very first Elite figure in the Mattel line. He had a Basic style figure very early on in the line and never had a figure since surprisingly. Both figures feature a much later look with his shorter hair.
The main release is in his typical green and black attire. He comes with a cloth cape as well as swappable hands. He’s sporting his white wrist/hand tape, black tights with logos as well as black knee pads and black/green kickpads.
The Chase variant is very similar, but has a large black/silver logo on his chest as well as green knee pads, different logos on his black tights, and white/green kickpads.
Overall, both figures are very nicely done and pretty sought after in the set. The cloth cape is a really nice touch and the detail on him from head to toe is very nice as well. I’m not sure which of the two I prefer as I remember him having a mixture of both attires. You can always swap his boots if you desired, but I always remember him with white boots with the small logo on his chest. Regardless, both are great and I do recommend you pick them up. Act fast as his figures go pretty quick.
Although we see Rollins a lot in the line, his figures never cease to impress. This one sports what I believe is his Chicago Bears style attire. I guess one could argue it’s Denver Broncos or something else, but I’m going to go with Bears for this review. He has his newer head scan we’ve seen on his figures lately as well as his blue entrance vest with S & R on it, followed by his black wrist tape, blue tights, knee pads and blue/white/orange kickpads.
Overall, the figure is nice and is pretty detailed. Some people have complained his vest isn’t fully decked out in detail, which is true, but it still looks pretty nice regardless. Underneath the vest he has chest hair as well as the tattoo going down his spine, which is cool. I personally like the figure, maybe being from Chicago it resonates with me more, but it’s definitely not bad. The extra hands are a great bonus as well. If you are a fan of his I recommend it as it least his figures do look different.
This is Mandy’s first Elite after her first Basic figure was released not too long ago. She was well overdue for a new figure and they certainly delivered with this one.
Many has a new head scan with her in a ponytail. She comes with her entrance vest, her black top and trunks as well as black knee pads and gold/white boots. She also comes with swappable hands, which is great and a new bonus to the female figures in 2020. I believe she also has double-jointed knees, which is awesome as you can pose her much better.
Overall, the detail is really nice on her vest. It is a rubber accessory, but that allows them to add more detail a lot easier. Her outfit is simple, but we finally have a new Mandy so I won’t complain. The hands are a great bonus as well so you can’t beat that. If you like her or simply want a better figure of her I recommend picking this one up as it’s much better than her Basic.
Although Jeff has had many figures lately, this one at least stands out from a lot of his others. This is from his earlier Ruthless Aggression days with his shorter, colored hair. He has face paint on his forehead as well as down his entire left side. The detail on it looks fantastic. They even painted his fingernails. Jeff also comes with a necklace, a removable rubber shirt and a removable towel from his pants, plus swappable hands. He is wearing his typical black pants with his black/white shoes.
Overall, Jeff is a decent figure in my opinion. It’s nice to truly have a different look for him as a lot of figures have pretty much been the same figure but with a different attire. This one at least has a newer head and stands out from all of his others in my opinion. If you’re a fan of Jeff I recommend it. There’s also a packaging variant where he comes with his rubber shirt off versus on.
Kalisto finishes up the Lucha House Party that released with Elite 73 and Elite 74. He features a new, yelling head scan and comes with a removable rubber shirt, a party spinner accessory and swappable hands. He’s wearing his red/blue/silver attire, which is pretty detailed and he even has the waistband he wears. Not to mention his detailed tattoos and designs throughout.
Overall, it’s nice to have a new Kalisto as he’s been due for an updated figure. I love that he is in fact smaller, but they still give him the typical guy hands, which are too big for his body. To me that always looks a bit goofy but the only person you can swap hands with would be Rey Mysterio but his only come with gloved hands as of late. Maybe Mattel will make proper scaled hands for the smaller guys eventually. The older figures had it but they haven’t made newer, smaller swappable hands for the smaller wrestlers. Besides that the detail is great and you can finally complete LHP with him if you collected the others.
Lastly we have the Collector’s Edition Billie Kay. Billie is a Target exclusive but due to the recent headaches of finding these they made her two per case with Elite 75 at both Walmart and Target, so be on the lookout if you haven’t found her yet.
Billie goes with the Elite 73 Peyton Royce Collector’s Edition, but unfortunately is in blue attire while Peyton is in red. She comes with a fabrice IICONICS shirt as well as a WWE microphone and swappable hands. Her attire is pretty detailed as they molded her top very detailed as well as the lace on her trunks over her stomach/waist, which is a cool detail. That required a lot of new molding for her, which I’m glad they did. She has the older style leg joints though and shorter boots/shoes on.
Overall, the figure is well done. Her likeness is great and the attire detail is fantastic. I’m glad she features the new swappable hands but am disappointed she has the older style knees. I really hope the future female figures have double-jointed knees moving forward as their figures were so overdue for a makeover. Regardless, Billie shouldn’t be that difficult to find while Peyton on the other hand is finally surfacing, but is harder to come by due to all the COVID-19 stuff going on.
Overall Elite 75 is a pretty decent set. The detail on a lot of the figures is nice. There’s several new/refreshing faces we haven’t seen in a very long time or at all, which is a huge bonus in my opinion. You can get them currently on Ringside or do your best to hunt them down with Billie at Walmart or Target. With everything going on a lot of figures are at a standstill in many areas so good luck and most of all stay safe and healthy!
