There are figures available of John Cena as a Ninja Turtle, a Masters of a certain Universe, a retro Hasbro and a Ghostbuster. Imagine how hard his dick must be when he walks into his mark room with all his figures (if he has one.)

Just nips in there for a sly one before a PPV.

One of the better Hasbro customs I’ve seen in a while. The customiser (Kyle, funnily enough) has stepped his game up the past year and is becoming really good.

We got Eric from Boss Fight Studios on for an in depth chat about the upcoming Legends Of Lucha Libre figure line. Eric is the lead designer of the line, and it’s in conjunction with Masked Republic. 

There’s also the chance to win some signed Rey Fenix and Penta merch too 👍

Couple of daft Hasbro related things we’re doing on twitter, that might be of interest.

Firstly, we’re recording has Hasbro focused pod show this weekend. We’ll be joined by a pal of mine, Kev Williams, who is about to release a book about the toy line (not to be confused with the KS book that people are pissed off about as it’s a year late).

We’ll be chatting about the book, the Hasbro line in general, the outcome of this poll (please vote of which of the 4 figs was your favourite):

POLL:

We’ll also be discussing the custom Hasbro competition we’re running. We send knackered hasbros to customisers/artists around the world. They transform them, we ask people to vote on the best custom, we send the winner a load of prizes.

All customs will be sold and all proceeds go to charity. So yep, should be a fun discussion for fans of Hasbro & collectors in general. I’ll pop the link on when it’s uploaded.

Not sure where to post this, but seeing as it is figure related I think that here is as good a place as any.

I managed to find and buy the below New Day Loot Crate Figure set from Poundland last week.

After the looks the cashiers gave me I think I might be banned from shopping in that Poundland again.

Haha, Bernado Silva was the first thing I thought of when I saw that too! 

It does look pretty dodgy doesn't it?

I think my first figures were a set of snide Mega Powers from Flamingo Land. I think they were Hogan and Savage anyway. One was definitely Hogan, and the other had a beard so, you know? A picture of Hogan booting Sgt Slaughter was on the cover, I remember that. Would love to see that online somewhere. Bootleg figures, although not pretty, have almost as much nostalgic value as hasbros do. If there was a particular one that looked good, I'd buy it and put him in my fed.

Fun UKFF fact, that fork and wrestlers thread was originally a thread I started talking about bootleg figures, which then turned into a hasbro discussion.

UPDATE! These are the ones I was talking about. "AS SEEN ON SATELLITE TV" is class.

Ah the bootlegs with the He-Man style bodies!

I don't think I ever owned any but you'd see them all over the place.

Was this the bearded guy?

Proper PowerSlam-style "taken by a bloke in the crowd" photo on the packaging there as well! 

I loved any bootleg wrestlers back then*, and they were always about. I'd go to to Rhyl for a week, throwing coin after coin into WrestleFest. My mom would spend every waking hour and possibly hundreds of pounds on prize bingo, and all she'd have to show for it was a set of those figures.

 

 

*For about ten seconds. Once I got home, back to my WWF roster, these shitehawks would get thrown in a tub and left, possibly with their belts being used as the Intercontinental or tag titles.

There were also so many snides of snides. 
The real remco/sungold figures were legit/licensed MOTU style figs.

Then you got loads of snides, in similar size to He-Man etc. Then you also got smaller mini knock offs of them. 
I remember getting a box of 8 of them for a quid in a sea side shop in Majorca, around 94’ish.
