One of the only lines I kept from childhood. My favorites were always Papa Shango, Doink, and Dusty Rhodes. Recently I have been getting into the mannix and simbas styles since they remind me of the good ol hasbro days.

I collect MOC examples, got the rare ones out of the way first. I got Dusty Rhoades, Purple Shirt Razor Ramon, 123 Kid, Undertaker, Adam Bomb, and Brutus Beefcake Barber version 2 (white and Black pants)
I also really like the unarticulated galoob WCW line. Theres tons of figures from that line that were only released in the UK and are super rare!
And whats the differences of the mail away Undertaker and Bret Hart? They look the same as the carded figures, what am I missing? or is a little plastic baggie really worth high triple digit sums?

I am the master of Foreign variations for just about any and all 80s toylines. I have the largest collection of Brazilian made toys in the USA!

I have these figures carded: Hulk Hogan (2 different) Bret Hart Undertaker Razor Ramon Mr Perfect Owen Hart Shawn Michaels The Rockers
Then I have a bunch of Loose ones 2 x Ultimate Warrior 2 x Macho Man # x Hogan 3 Members of Demolition LOD British Bulldog (with damaged card) Shawn Michaels Bret Hart Undertaker Rick Rude Owen Hart Mr Perfect Doink Jim Neidhart
REALLY wish they made a Diesel figure in this line though, they did make these in 1994 yes?
When the Hasbros first came out I was immediately excited and purchased up most of the first several series that were released, up through 1992. But I was never impressed with their (lack of) mobility and generally played with my GI Joes as wrestlers in the Hasbro ring. I held onto the collection until around 2000 and sold them all in one lump to a friend before he moved away. I did keep Akeem though as my bkeepsake, he sat on my computer desk shelf for another 12 years or so until my sons took him from me.

These are my all time favorite wrestling figures. I'm missing 123 kid and Adam Bomb unfortunately. I could eventually go back and replace a few that had some broken fingers but that day will wait until I have space to display them. I started collecting these right when the Internet it big so these were my first venture into collecting by buying online. Before then it was stores and flea markets so this line holds a special place in my heart. I also got the bootleg diesel and mad a custom using the head and advertised Bret Hart body.
