Start Xmas shopping now!



Come on, $10 for generic tattooed cowboy hat guy, strong black gentleman, AND Rey Generico Jr?  Plus a plastic ladder AND chair? Really, who needs the dozens of overpriced WWE sets when you can have this AND your imagination?

  1. I would have totally wanted this as a kid.

  2. What kind of hardcore match has a fucking parking meter as a weapon?

  3. That's not a bad deal for $10. I remember the old Hasbro WWF rings and the Jakks rings used to cost $15-$20.

    It looks more like a child's male stripper toy set.

  6. Shane Marchels and Billy Leshley against Roy Masterico Jr. and Don Flautista for the Super Championship Tag Team... Championship. Which is one belt. They share. They defend three-legged-race style.

    Book it.

  7. This is like something that I would have wanted badly from Bargain Harold's as a kid, but not allowed to have.

  8. Wow.. 21 pieces of plastic for my kid to choke on!!

  9. Reminds me of when I asked for GI Joe for Christmas and my mom would buy Lanard Corps or some other knockoffs... NOT the same thing.. and they weren't dolls.. DAMMIT!!

  10. Nice. Growing up I did have a wrestling league with my DC/Marvel action figures. But these guys are cheap and lack personality, so they would have wound up being jobbers. Still, the title belt and weapons would have come in handy.

    That's totally Percy Watson

  12. That's definitely the first upvote that Bargain Harold's has ever earned.

    I believe this is the newest release in the Speed Force line

  14. I've always wanted Titus O'Neil, Justin Hawk Bradshaw, and Baraka figures...

    Yepper. I did the same thing. Used the early 90s Hasbro ring.

    ReplyDelete
  16. We should all buy a set and mail it to Dixie Carter and see how long it takes for parking meters to begin to show up in a Monster's Ball match.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I used my GI Joe figures as wrestlers. Had them fighting for the GWF (Galaxy Wrestling Federation) belt. Shipwreck was my version of Randy Savage, Quick Kick was like Ricky Steamboat, Roadblock was like JYD.. I was a huge gimmick stealer.

    Better hurry up then.

  19. God.. I just had the funniest memory of Tomax & Xamot vs Snake Eyes & Storm Shadow in a tag team championship scaffold match located on top of my dresser. The joys of youth and imagination..

    I love going to Chinatown shops and seeing all the knock-off toys. My favorite has to be figures of The Incredibles with the heads of Power Rangers.

    Ssshhh!! They're called The Exemplaries. You wanna get sued?

    ReplyDelete
  22. They're original creations,
    like Ricky Rouse and Monald Muck.

    You can get shit like this ALL OVER New York City. My favorites are the knock-off superhero 5 packs with close-but-not-really versions of Superman, Batman, Spider-Man, The Hulk and a Power Ranger.

    ReplyDelete
  24. LMAO my nephew has some of those cheap figures...he especially loves the generic lucha ones

    ReplyDelete
  25. You can use them as enhancement talent for your actual WWE toys

    Think about all the grandparents who will buy this for little Timmy or Samantha. "Here you go, sweetie, I know how much you like the wrestling!"

    KidConnection is probably rolling in the Social Security dough.

    ReplyDelete
  27. This is EXACTLY the type of thing my grandma would buy me back in the 80's! Good call.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I love that the set comes with a ring barrier, but no ropes or posts, just a mat. So the two or three fans sitting behind the barrier are shit out of luck, but anyone else in the arena can just waltz into the "ring."

    ReplyDelete
  29. They should really use whatever they used to use for those LJN figures in the 80s and reboot those. Not that I collect stuff or anything, but those things were durable as hell. Much better than the plastic figures they've put out since then

    ReplyDelete
  30. Totally. I wanted a ring to go with my WWF LJN figures and got that cheap AWA ring. I did use it as a podium for interviews however after I finally got the real WWF ring...

    ReplyDelete
  31. I was going to frame up some old maps for my family, but now everyone's getting Lance Cade and Friends toys!

    ReplyDelete
  32. True. The only problem I had was tearing the back of Hulk's knee from too many leg drops.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I liked the AWA figures, though. They moved better than the WWF ones did.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Yeah, the LJN ones were all about the design. Some guys, like JYD you could do anything with. Others, like Ventura and Dibiasi were in these weird poses that limited what you could do. I do remember cutting off Jimmy Hart's megaphone so he could throw it in the ring to his guys...

    ReplyDelete
  35. It's Timmy, not Samantha

    So they really are just like being in the ring!

    Girls like wrestling, too!

  38. The worst one was Orndorff. You couldn't do a damn thing with him, other than elbowdrops and maybe a press slam.

    ReplyDelete
  39. The best part about that whole series was the fact that there were two versions of SD Jones. One with a Hawaiian shirt, the other with a plain shirt. Was there really that much of a market for multiple versions of SD Jones?

    ReplyDelete
  40. Good point. I remember being pissed when the Hawaiian shirt version came out, because I already had the red shirt version and sure as hell wasn't getting ANOTHER friggin' SD Jones figure. I think they put out a post-haircut version of Andre too, right?

    I'm sure I wasn't the only one who used the WWF figures to represent NWA guys, right? Valentine was also Flair, Orndorff was Luger, JYD was Michael Hayes, etc.

    ReplyDelete
  41. The Love-Matic Grampa!October 15, 2014 at 8:46 AM

    JYD was Michael Hayes


    Thought you could slip that one by us, eh?

  43. I used to use these dollar store guys are jobbers. Then I just mowed a bunch of lawns for a week until they released the new wrestlers on Tuesdays at K B Toys and Toys R Us. Kids these days and their lack of imagination and no work ethic.

    Some of those older WCW figures didn't move at all.

    Something that WWE doesn't do these days.

    This post is made even more amusing by picturing him do that

    ReplyDelete
  48. I used to use GI Joes as the cruiserweights and they'd get beaten in squash matches by my Terminator action figure (who used a piledriver off the top rope as a finisher). Eventually, I was able to get lots of Jakks figures, but for a long time I used just regular action figures for matches. Roy Schneider's character from Seaquest DSV was the big heel manager of the federation.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I had my short plastic non bending figures from the early 90s (Hogan, Warrior, Jake, Beefcake), the weird bendable rubber figures from the mid 90s, and then the awesome head-turning, knee and elbow-bending plastic Jakks(?) figures from the late 90s-early 00s. Plus the dollar store figures as jobbers and my sister's dolls as valets. I bought the wrestlers and I asked for accessories (rings, titan trons, tables/ladders/chairs, cages/cells) for birthdays and holidays. I still break them out every once in a while when my little cousins are over. Damn those were good times.
