Tristar sent me a box of their new TNA Impact Reflexxions to review.
The first thing I noticed was the box itself is serial numbered out of 2400.
A nice little touch. I don’t think Tristar gets enough cred for their lower print runs.
the box states 3 autos, at least one being a multi auto, and one relic.
There are plenty of lady wrestlers. Some are quit reveling, but my mom reads this site so I will keep it a little more PG and not so PG13. I will say I don’t know much about Ms. Love up there but she sure has a skinny waist, almost freakishly skinny.
The base cards focus on posed photos like these, which is OK. I would have enjoyed some nice action shots, but the set seems to focus a little more on the individual personalities so the posed photos work just fine.
Hulk looks pretty tough BUT I miss the old fashion yellow tighted Hulkamaniac. Tristar didn’t let me down.
These cards are from the Steiners world series in the set. The back offers up Scott Steiner’s thoughts on various wrestlers. Scott calls Kurt Angle the greatest wrestler all time. I am not sure about that one.
This series is interesting. It asks various wrestlers if they watch the Super Bowl for the game or the comercials. Interesting question. I do like that the lovely women up above are wearing uniforms to recreate the 2002 Super Bowl.
For the record Velvet Sky likes the commercials and Traci says she prefers the Grey Cup.
We also have the Fast Traxx series.
The card back tells you about the wrestlers favorite rides. Ms Sky has a Trailblazer. She also states one of her dreams cars is a monster truck. Mr. Anderson states on his card he lives in NYC so he doesn’t own a car. Who says wrestlers aren’t environmentally friendly.
Hit wise I got some cool stuff.
My final auto is a doozy.
Gail Kim numbered to 5. Ms. Kim had a nice little run in the WWE and has been the TNA ladies champ. I also learned on her wikipedia page that she is engaged to Dinner Imposible host Robert Irvine. who knew?
The set is nice. Lots of variety. Some of the bigger names have as many as 5-6 different cards in the set. Great for fans. The set is also fun in that it offers up some interesting tidbits about your favorite grapplers.
The cards have a nice look and the 3 autos and 1 relic offer good value.
