Custom Andre The Giant figure. Based on his early 1980's look.

the next ringside exclusive will be Kevin Nash so he'll be available again.


Title: Re: What? No WWE thread?
Post by: Boy Wonder on November 01, 2015, 05:55:30 pm
Well I have the original Nash, but I want Diesel too

I've made it my hill to die on to get every WWE champion in figure form, so I figure I could spring for an actual Diesel instead of just using Nash. Hopefully the prices will drop when the RSC figure comes out.

We're only 8 figures away. A few I'm sure Mattel would make if they could (Angle, Hardy, Backlund, Graham) the others are going to need some support (Rogers, Morales, Stasiak, Koloff). Although I could see Koloff getting made if we ever got Nikita. And Rogers WAS the first WWE champion ever, so he has that going for him. Plus him and Morales are in the HOF.

Here's the last group shot I took. I'll take another when Sid arrives. Although I might wait to see if Roman wins the title.

And yeah, my dumbass forgot Sheik in this pic.

Hmm. I thought he kind of sat around for a little bit.  At least here he did. I'm actually surprised he didn't sell slower than he did. The fact that he seems to have sold so well gives me hope for those other old school guys I want.

just a note for bigraj,there's a couple new pre-orders I'm sure you already know about at ringside collectibles,NWO nash,Nation of Domination(Farooq and Rock) and they posted the roster fro elite 41 including Lita,Terry Funk and Finn Balor.


Title: Re: What? No WWE thread?
Post by: bigraj on December 30, 2015, 09:48:50 am
Still need to place a pre-order for that Nash.  Not sure if I want the NoD set, but will probably break down and get it.

Just picked up the new Macho King HoF figure from Target over the weekend, but haven't spotted the DiBiase figure at either Target.  The hunt is on!

I think the zombies will be a flop, but this is still the best line I've ever collected when it comes to giving the fans what they want.  It's hard to believe this is the same company that continues to scratch it's ass when it comes to the DC license.

I still haven't found DiBiase here in North Florida yet.  I need to order a Summer Slam DiBiase for a head swap.  DiBiase is one of my all time favorites, and this goes back to the Georgia and Mid-South days, long before he became the Millon Dollar Man in the WWE.

There's a lot more coming down the pike as well including New Day and Dudley Boyz Elites.

Title: Re: What? No WWE thread?
Post by: Gardner Grayle on April 21, 2016, 10:36:38 pm
Not sure it's "the industry" in this case.  She hadn't wrestled in years.  Sounds like she had a substance problem even before she entered the WWF.  And I'm assuming that's what the cause of death is.


Title: Re: What? No WWE thread?
Post by: B-Lister on April 21, 2016, 10:40:19 pm
The roids she undoubtedly took during her time with the company certainly couldn't have helped. And by "the industry" I really mean those who perform, moreso than the companies that promote it.

Whatever the cause, people in professional wrestling have a tendency to die young. There's no denying it.

We really don't know what happened though.  Vince can be a huge self serving prick most of the time.  But Kimmel Prime from back on the 'Mess told me that Vince does try very hard to help out guys behind the scenes.  Whether or not they are on the current roster.  He gets them into rehab, pays some expenses, medical, etc.  But you can't help people who don't want to be helped or don't want to change.  Dunno if Joanie was like that or not. 

And not for nothing, this is his son in law's ex.  Sensitive subject all around.

There's Chyna's real problem with WWE. Not Vince.

My wife met her a month or two back. Was very cool to her, but was also incredibly high. Then this past Wrestlecon she no-showed and the reason given to her ticket holders, was she was too high on pills to even get on the plane. So no matter what they say, drugs were definitely a contributing factor. But yeah, I'm sure now that she's dead WWE will try to grab as much cash from her as they can.

I caved and preordered Samoa Joe and Kevin Owens from Ringside.

Things have started, but it's one of many, many initiatives started (and continually changing) over the last few years trying to fix one of the many, many things broken with the system.

And also AK's and lobbyists.

You guys are a bunch of old people, so you'll understand my excitement that Bob Backlund is back on TV meaning that with his new exposure, we'll surely get a figure of him now.

I'm partial to his late 70's-early 80's look with either the 73-83 belt or the Big Green belt.


Title: Re: What? No WWE thread?
Post by: Gardner Grayle on May 04, 2016, 07:17:51 am
Never was a fan of Backlund.  But he certainly deserves a figure.


Title: Re: What? No WWE thread?
Post by: bigraj on May 04, 2016, 12:39:08 pm
I'd be all over a figure of Backlund.  And Pedro Morales. And Superstar Graham.


Title: Re: What? No WWE thread?
Post by: B-Lister on May 04, 2016, 12:40:45 pm
No idea who any of those guys are.

My era was 1984-1998


Title: Re: What? No WWE thread?
Post by: Boy Wonder on May 04, 2016, 01:03:35 pm
Then you'll remember Backlund for winning the title from Bret Hart in 94

Heck, Pedro is the most obscure on that list and he retired from WWF in 1987.

Graham is a bonafied superstar (no pun intended). I really don't know how you wouldn't know him.

Now if I was talking about how much I want Stan Stasiak or Buddy Rogers, I'd understand (although Rogers IS the original Nature Boy and the original prototype for charismatic wrestlers)


Title: Re: What? No WWE thread?

Jakks? This like like DC Direct Vs DCUC all over again  :D

I tossed all my Jakks in a garbage bag and haven't looked back. They're just sitting in my attic. Not sullying my Mattels with them.

Bruno sold, Graham will look a lot cooler than him (and is a bigger name) and Backlund will have TV exposure.


Title: Re: What? No WWE thread?
Post by: bigraj on May 04, 2016, 07:09:40 pm
So I swapped out Sting's arms with a pair of Dolph Ziggler's.  I think they look much better.  The extra-wide Batista torso bothers me less now that Sting had slightly smaller arms.

Graham will look a lot cooler than him

Based on what little I know, Graham will want a shit ton of money for his likeness.  Kimmel tried to get him for Wrestlefest one year.  After a verbal agreement, Graham's daughter/manager sent a very long list of specific "requirements" via email to Kimmel.  Plus he wanted a lot more money.  Wrestlefest is an event that probably barely breaks even.  I'd say SSBG is a longshot.

Post by: Boy Wonder on May 04, 2016, 08:34:31 pm
He already signed a Legends deal in January. I'd be very surprised if we don't see a proto at SDCC.

Is Sting tan like Dolph?

That figures still just too much of a mess for me. The body, the scan, the boot situation, the price for something that doesn't justify it. Unfortunately I doubt Mattel can "regress" on him to make him any smaller. I'll just have to figure out a fix for a future version.

I'm an Elite collector.  The women released in the Basic lines have Elite articulation, so I also buy them.  Sometimes I'll pick up a Basic figure in order to do a head swap to make an Elite figure better.

That sucks that you didn't know it was Basic. I use the Basic head on the Elite body. Not terrible.

I do. I absolutely HATE the articulation on Basics. Minus the occasional woman. And even they could use some more POA.

I don't mind the articulation. I just assumed, incorrectly, that the Entrance Greats, due to their deluxe packaging, and presentation were Elite.

I don't mind the basics, i only have two Elites, and they're both Randy Savage,

Sitting here watching some old PPVs from when I first really got into WWE (Invasion era) when I never got to watch the PPVs. Now I'm really jonesing for a Kurt Angle. He was my favorite back then so it'd definitely have some sentimental value to get him (he was also my first ever wrestling figure, an old TTL with a cloth singlet).

He's a free agent right now, so it's really just a matter of time until he's put into the HOF or signs a limited deal. But man, I want it NOW.

He's had so many looks too.

2000, IC title days
2001, WWE title hunt. I'd love to get his USA flag singlet with the gold detail.
2002-04 bald w/boots
2005-06 bald w/ wrestling shoes

Plus all the really cool singlets he had during those four periods.


Title: Re: What? No WWE thread?
Post by: bigraj on May 09, 2016, 09:12:49 am
Yeah, I really want some Angle figures, too.  Hopefully he signs whatever he needs to with Matty and/or WWE so he can start ankle-locking our collections.

Just a matter of them (or their estate) signing the right contracts.  There's still so many guys I'd love for them to make figures of.  They probably wouldn't go back to milk their Mid-South looks, but I'd take Doc in the singlet he wore during his short WWF run in the Attitude Era.  Need some singlet molds so that they can make guys like him, The Steiners, and Angle.  Swagger's body is too tall and lean for Doc and Bros.  Duggan's black trunks w/white boots and weird grayish-white knee pads probably wouldn't too attractive on the shelf.  Sadly, the only Terry Taylor we have a slim possibility of getting is his Red Rooster gimmick.  I'd love a Jake Roberts in his red karate gi pants.  Butch Reed, Chris Adams, Gino, Fantastics, and so many others, but sadly most of them would be a tough sell for today's collectors, especially for the guys who already have Jakks versions of them.  There are still a lot of them that won't buy "Flashback" figures of guys they already bought in the CS line.

I'm so happy they got that Slaughter made. Besides Snuka, I don't think there's anyone left to be remade from their early oddball attire choices.

Probably Dusty, but Bill mentioned he'd really like to do an NWA version so I'm sure he's on the short list.

Post by: Boy Wonder on May 15, 2016, 08:53:22 pm
GRAAAAH! Went to 8 Targets in the Columbus, found Eddie easy enough, even saw a Sarge at one point, but kept missing out on Warrior. Until the very last one I went to where I found two of him. Excitedly grab one and head on home. Open him up and realize he has the same torso as HOF Hogan! Now the one he's supposed to have. Super weird problem, so I head back to get the other one about 16 miles away and he's the exact same. Maybe these were later shipments or something, but I don't like it. I just want a normal one :(

We probably hit a few of the same shops this weekend. Were you at the Target in Pickerington?

Saw a guy leaving one Target with Hogan and Yokozuna moments before I found Slaughter.

Also, Snuka is a murderer. How is he still getting merch and a HOF recognition. He's scum, same as Benoit.

Post by: Boy Wonder on May 16, 2016, 06:18:40 am
That was about the only one I didn't hit. I mostly stuck to the ones inside 270. E Broad, Easton, High St, Grandview, Dublin, Hilliard, Cemetery, Grove City. I actually resorted to calling Reynoldsberg (which I HATE doing). Didn't make it up to Powell or Polaris. Hilliard was the last one I hit that had them.

I'm headed back to KY today, will probably stop at a couple off the interstate. Do you live in Columbus? I know you mentioned it in a PM, but I figured I had just forgot that I mentioned I'd be up here.

I'll give Snuka the benefit of the doubt and say that he's still innocent until proven guilty (although they still shouldn't be honoring him or anything while this case is still ongoing). The more we learn about head trauma, the sadder the Benoit case gets. That dude's brain was complete mush.

Two months ago, my collection was the Legends Macho Man.

every wrestling figure you see on that shelf was acquired in the last four weeks.

I'm either lucky, or meticulous. The only figures I didn't buy in store are the RSC Exclusive Hall and Nash (barely seen in the above pic, but you can see the edge of Hall's box on the right), and Roddy Piper.

Pretty cool stuff so far.

Gonna need to pick up a few of those basic Iron Shiek and Razor figures.  Those arms will be useful for swaps.  My Elite Razor could definitely benefit from the larger biceps, and it'll be nice for him to have the same arms as the NWO Hall.

New stuff up for Pre-order @ RSC.  There's an Elite Legends line (4 reissues, new deco Jericho, and MAGNUM fucking TA!).  Only ordered Magnum, along with Big E from Elite 44.  May also order Savage from E44 if it is the Ultimate Maniacs outfit to match the new DM Ultimate Warrior.

Despite the Legends being mostly reissued figures, 3 of them (Undertaker, HBK, and Ultimate Warrior) are generally pretty strong sellers.  Worried that Kamala will peg warm.

Lots of great stuff shown at SDCC. But I'm REALLY disappointed we didn't see a Billy Graham. They've had the rights since January and he doesn't need new parts besides the head.

Plus he's a little crazy, so they better make a figure before he says or does something to jeopardize his Legends deal.

Finally saw a pic of the new Defining Moments Ric Flair.  Awesome work.  Can't wait to get a great Elite old man Flair.  Love the look of all the Legends.  Yeah, Magnum's wearing the wrong knee pads, but I'll fix that.  So much stuff to buy: 

DM Flair
Magnum (Already pre-ordered)
Harlem Heat
Lord Steven Regal
Wolfpac Sting
Jerry Lawler (young head scan looks great)
Diesel
Typhoon
Roman Reigns (finally a decent head scan and vac-metal new WWE title)
Seth Rollins in white
Narcissist Lex Luger
Booty O's box set
Bayley (not crazy about the head scan)
Ultimate Maniacs Randy Savage
Dudley Boys
Wait . . . one Wild Samoan?  Where's the other?

Still waiting for Elite 43 to hit locally.  Still need the Hart Foundation and Kofi from that set.

Title: Re: What? No WWE thread?
Post by: bigraj on August 12, 2016, 08:26:40 am
I'm having to rely more and more on Amazon and RSC for WWE figures.  All the stores out here tend to overstock whatever waves they order and it's even more ridiculous for the exclusives.  The Targets in town haven't stocked any new Elites since the packaging changed to red again.  All the Walmarts are choking on the Sycho Sid/Godfather wave.  TRU is very inconsistent, as well, and they're in love with stocking those Network Spotlight figures that no one wants.  "Blue blood" Hunter Hearst Helmsley?  A Big Boss Man that's practically identical to the one already released?  "Ringmaster" Steve Austin with a horrible head sculpt?  Shit.


Title: Re: What? No WWE thread?
Post by: JackKnight on August 15, 2016, 12:47:19 pm
I've been buying mine almost exclusively on Amazon for a while now. Don't get them as fast as from RSC, but they're cheaper than the price in-store and I just got Baron Corbin in the mail. So I'm waaaaay ahead of what's in stores anyway.

He's rumored to be popping up again here soon. Possibly at Mania.

Plus the Hardy's TNA contracts are up next month and there's been talk of them returning.

We could have Hogan, Angle, Matt Hardy, Jeff Hardy, and Goldberg all on the table at SDCC.

Then they'd have the rights to Angle, Hardy, Backlund, and Graham, leaving only Rogers, Morales, Stasiak, and Koloff for that champ rosters.

Woo! Managed to grab an AJ from Amazon. 2016 was a very lackluster year in wrestling figures for me. Samoa Joe and Kevin Owens were the only two I was REALLY looking forward to, and they each had some pretty glaring flaws that held them back for me.

But 2017 is off to a great start with two figures I really want, AJ Styles and TRU Vince McMahon. Then Nakamura is coming in a couple months.  Plus we'll hopefully get Bob Backlund and Billy Graham this year and get to see some protos for Kurt Angle at SDCC and if we're really lucky, maybe even more Hogans and a return of the Hardy Boyz

Ahh . . . finally looking at the pic of him now.  The pre-order pic at RSC was Warlord was his PoP look.  Definitely not a fan of the singles run look, though I could always use the parts.  Rhyno just can't have a decent looking figure.  This one might be worse than the TNA one.  Loving the WMIII Defining Moments Savage.

Yeah, the medal was the "original" prize for the Cruiserweight Classic tournament, along with a trophy, before it was decided that the winner would also be the new Cruiserweight champion.  Didn't look at the package in the store, but I don't remember seeing a trophy.  No rush to pick up Perkins, since all the Network Spotlight figures are choking the pegs at my TRU.  Still plenty of Ringmaster Steve Austin and Hunter Hearst Helmsley figures from that line, alongside the more recent releases.

Elite-styled figures?  I'd love a Larry Z.

Does anyone here have any opinions/recommendations on Wrestling Rings?

I would like to get one to serve as a boxing ring for my 6 inch figures.


Title: Re: The WWE thread
Post by: bigraj on October 29, 2017, 09:27:59 pm
For boxing purposes, where you'll generally have 2-3 figures in the ring at once, any basic WWE should suffice.

Ha! Holy crap, I had to look it up to believe it. I haven’t followed that line in a while. They got some great names, too bad I don’t collect RA figures and the likenesses are awful.

Yeah FTCs wrestling figures are very crappy and way overpriced but this one appealed to me.i would get Shane Douglas if it were better made and cheaper.

Haven't seen Elias yet. 

I like the idea of Giant Machine, but without Hulk Machine, Super Machine, Piper Machine, etc I don't think it works.

Got Surfer Sting and Dude love from Elite 62 pre-ordered.  Dusty and Shelton from 63 will be pre-ordered pretty soon.

I grabbed him the other day too. Not at the top of my priority list and I wouldve preferred his NWA look, but I’m surprised we even got him at all and who knows if I’ll see him again, so I gritted my teeth and paid full price. Head scan is pretty great.

I've only seen the wave at Meijer. Hopefully not. I finally found Dude a couple days ago but his leg was already hanging by a thread right out of the box, which then fell off with no effort.

Been hitting up my local WMs as often as I can looking for him with no luck. He’s the first wrestling figure I’ve actively hunted for in a long time.

I still need to get Jeff Hardy and Jinder Mahal, but my WWE Champion collection is getting more and more complete. Only a handful left to make now.
