New wrestling figures!

Recommended Posts

I’m running a custom Hasbro figures tournament on twitter. I sent several customisers some battered and bruised hasbros. They were given a month to transform them.

We’re now running a KOTR style tournament and a panel of 7 judges including Chris from Figures Toy Company & Erik from Boss Fight Studios (both make commercially licensed wrestling figures).

The overall winner will receive a box of prizes, including some signed items donate by Zack Ryder & co.

The most important bit, everyone of the customs will be up for sale. 100% of the funds raised is going to charity.

You can see the figures/tournament here:

Sting one is an outstanding repaint but the work that's gone into the Ultimate Warrior makes it the clear winner. In fact, the one up against Sting in the first round, I'd argue for as the winner of that tie. It's not quite as good looking but he's put incredible work into moulding it before the paint.

The last episode of The Toys That Made Us on Netflix is all about wrestling figures, I haven't watched it yet but I've heard great things about the show in general.

I have had a few days off work and have been watching the Toys that made us series. They are great fun and some interesting history. 

Wrestlers, turtles, power rangers and He-Man are all great watches.

With the exception of Ringside Collectibles and wrestlingshop, is there anywhere else to purchase the Retro's? 

Can't justify the top end prices with the s&h on top. Missed out on the dirt cheap prices a couple weeks back.

The Entertainer always seem to have them and my local Home Bargains had Austin, Sting, Ambrose, Rollins, Mankind, Rock.

Toys and Masks.

I haven’t bought any wrestling figures for ages but decided to get some of the retros for Christmas. Toys and Masks was way cheaper than wrestlingshop.

The ones at the Entertainer have been discontinued, which is a shame as eBay/Amazon marketplace is the only option for them now.

Doing a clear out soon of my old figures, have quite a few of the original ECW San Francisco toys line as well as the WCW figures by Toybiz I think. All in "played with" condition. Are these worth much these days at all? Moving country so hoping to shift fairly quick all the same.

If only Conrad would be half as funny as he thinks he is, that video would have been an all-time great. Its still good, because of Hawkins and Ryder, but Jesus wept. JR and Conrad are essentially the same person.
