Bleacher Creatures – Braun Strowman and Finn Balor

The folks over at Bleacher Creatures have announced another pair of WWE Superstars that will be released in 10-inch tall plush form. There's "The Monster Among Men" Braun Strowman, complete with his giant beard and fashionable rat tail. And he's also yelling at you...an imitation my six-year-old son has perfected. Then, you have the unmasked version of Finn Bálor. (They already released the Demon version of Bálor) You can pick up both of these wrasslers to add to your personal stable for $19.99 a pop.

Vegas Golden Knights Bleacher Creatures

Today's the NHL Trade Deadline...so that means no rest until 3pm for hockey fans. One guy who will not be going anywhere is Vegas Golden Knights' goaltender, Marc-André Fleury. But the goalie for the NHL's newest team is now available as a 10-inch tall plush figure from Bleacher Creatures. Available for $19.99, he's joined by the Vegas Golden Knights' mascot, Chance the Gila Monster. Because...of course, a gila monster.

AJ Styles Bleacher Creature

Bleacher Creatures has announced the pre-order availability of their WWE - AJ Styles Bleacher Creature. "The Phenomenal One" will be making his first appearance in the line. And - as you can see - he's dressed in his red wrestling attire. You can currently pre-order this 10-inch tall plush for $19.99. It's expected to begin shipping around February 25th 2018 (which is just way too long for my 6-year-old son...who must have this).

REVIEW: Finn Balor Bleacher Creature

Bleacher Creatures have come a long way since we last reviewed their cuddly plush creations on Plastic and Plush. Currently, they produce their 10-inch tall Bleacher Creature plushies based on the following licenses – WWE, NHL, and NBA. For this review, we’ve received a Demon Finn Balor Bleacher Creature to check out.

First off, this is the first time we’re using our new 360-degree view video to show off a collectible. You can check out the Balor Bleacher Creature from all angles.

If you didn’t realize yet, Finn Balor is a WWE wrestler (or sports entertainer). He normally comes to the ring as a normal looking (unpainted) dude, but he occasionally lets the Demon come out. When that happens, he more than often shows up in the paint scheme you see here.

I can see why Bleacher Creatures features this plush in their WWE marketing. Balor’s one of the more interesting characters and the only one who’s just not a guy in a shirt. He would be a lot less interesting if it was just regular old Finn Balor minus the Demon makeup.

While kids love them – my 5-year-old son swiped this Finn Balor as soon as he saw it – the Bleacher Creatures plush line is made with collectors in mind. They’re produced with flat feet, which allows you to display your plush next to your plastic collectibles. So, you could put the Finn Balor Bleacher Creature next to the Mattel Elite Series figure. No problem.

Plus, the entire line looks a lot like the players/wrestlers they are trying to represent. That’s a challenge, especially considering these plush. It’s difficult to get a plush toy to look like a real person. But Bleacher Creatures has done it.

It appears that all aspects of each Bleacher Creature’s face are unique. They have different nose shapes, different eye styles with correct colors, various mouths. You can even check out Enzo Amore’s unique two-tone spikey hairdo.

In addition to Balor, Bleacher Creatures has a number of other WWE wrestlers in their line. There’s about 10 different characters, including The Rock and John Cena. Each plush runs $19.99. I’m of the opinion that $19.99 is a decent price for a 10-inch tall licensed plush.

(Really? A 17% Rotten Tomatoes score for this movie? You could edit together animated cut scenes from one of the games and come out with a better score than that.)
