Round 5 to Release Four New MMA Figures That Look Very Little Like Their Real Life Counterparts

 
(Okay, Nate Diaz is somewhat recognizable other than the fact that he’s as big as Carwin, but the others aren’t even close.)

If your only job was to create plastic facsimiles of MMA fighters for the action figure company you worked for, you’d think you might want to do it with at least *some* accuracy.

I’m guilty of owning a vintage Ken Shamrock WWF and a handful of Zakks Pacific figures that I bought spruce up my office a bit, but I’ve never seen a Round 5 model that I’ve had the desire to purchase.

They just seem like the design team is just phoning them in. The fact that they advertise them with a photo of the real fighter in the background which doesn’t even look a little bit like the toy version is somewhat odd.


Tell me this looks anything like Vitor Belfort:


It’s almost as if they had a Gonzaga figure ready to go and they had to rebrand it after "Napao" got cut last week by the UFC.

Does these remind you even remotely of Shane Carwin or Tyson Griffin Thiago Silva?

I kind of want the Jim Carrey or the Jason Statham figure, but I’ll wait until they go on sale at T.J. Maxx.

Shogun looks like they asked him totake this picture emidiately after his brothers last fight. I have never seen a sadder mug on a dude holding a UFC belt.

Alright,

It's Confession time I as well own some of the Old school Jakks specific Once WWF action figures. I gotta say when I was like Eight to Twelve these things were amazing and just outright fun I mean they had "Real" Bone snapping action and.. Alright so I have them all in a box in the attic and this kind of makes me wanna bust them out and have a Royal Rumble or some shit.

@FBF

Thats some funny shit, I have a bunch of those I should dig them out I think they sold the steroids and shotgun accessories separately though so I never got to play mass suicide. Though I do have the Old Brian Pillman and Eddie Guerrero figures maybe I can make a cool youtube video of them blowing coke off my Sable/China/ and Stephanie mcmahon. Oh the fun that might ensue!

Dear Editor: If I get banned from youtube will you post my amazing video?

Is it just me or does the Thiago Silva one look like he's tripping on acid and thinks he's a gorilla?

I just read somewhere that Lil' Tykes is bringing out it's own salute to Chandella Powell, A Spring Hobby Horse in her likeness.
This Adult sized Hobby horse allows it's owner to ride Chandella all night long as they watch reruns of UFC 119 and then put her away wet.
Viva Hate- November 1, 2010 at 6:56 pm
@Ballkick,
You are actually onto something, rumor gas it the Chandella figures will be nothing more than left over My Little Pony dolls with larger teeth glued on, sadly I think they are not fugly enough from what I have read.

Almost North

Right cause Carwin isn't a huge dopey mouthbreather looking motherfucker in real life. Its just the doll.

Hahah!!!

FBF >>

Hell points AND a belly laugh? Yeah, i dig it. Well played, sir.

Also, Charming Charlie has to be the most polite troll ever. Like, EVER ever ever.
Mike Russell- November 1, 2010 at 6:02 pm
 And what does being cynical about an MMA blogger make you, Charlie?Let me guess....President of Round 5?
Charming Charlie- November 1, 2010 at 5:49 pm
Mike Russel, they look just like the fighters. Being cynical about politics makes you look smart. Being cynical about MMA action figures makes you look stupid.

The Anderson Silva action figure has the "NO SOUL" eyes going on.
As Good As Anyone- November 1, 2010 at 4:57 pm
Shane Carwin's action figure features a 5 minute stand up time, comes with a gurney, oxygen tank and list of excuses.
Dirt- November 1, 2010 at 4:51 pm
Shane "The Iceman" Carwin!
lol, not even close
Vitor looks like Nate Marquardt and Gonzaga's forbidden love child
darciesdaddy- November 1, 2010 at 4:31 pm
I would buy the Diego Sanchez and Carwin figures if you could pull a string and make them say "YES!" and "TIMMY!", respectively.
Viva Hate- November 1, 2010 at 4:14 pm
@Fbf,
I will take one, I am making a nativity scene and I need someone to choking the baby Jesus in a roid rage.

Why is the Silva figure making some sort of fishlike kiss face?
Bruce_Buffer- November 1, 2010 at 3:51 pm
Poor Thiago Silva...

djp1988- November 1, 2010 at 3:43 pm
@fatbellyfrank

A. Holy shit.

2. I lol'd.

When are my Chris Benoit dolls gonna be worth anything on e-bay, I went out and bought a couple after he killed his family thinking they might become collectors items
RwilsonR- November 1, 2010 at 3:32 pm
I actually love that Nate Diaz is mean-mugging even in doll form.

@ gigerarm - For the Belfort one, I think Gonzaga fucked Tito's wife, and she popped out a little plastic version of him. That is if Gonzaga could reproduce with a woman who is 90% plastic herself.
JDL- November 1, 2010 at 3:29 pm
The belfort doll looks like nate marquardt and why is the silva doll cross eyed?
