rhythm and blues greg valentine. never officially hit retail but some figures here and there found their way into the wild. a number of them are incomplete with the action arm not attached and those loose go for mid 4 figures

rumor is they purposely did a limited released of both this wave and the 2nd so that their figure lines in the future would be more in demand

Lol I was about to ask if they're worth it. I guess they don't exist. Walmart.com has an AEW banner that links to ELITE WWE figures.

I'm thousands deep into my TF collection (I stopped now they fill my room) so I don't collect any more but a Kenny Omega just seems cool to have.

i had the first 'the rock' figure where he still had blue underpants on from being rocky maivia and they didn't bother to change it to the exact same thing but black underpants. i wanted the black underpants one that was exactly the same pretty bad, but i didn't have it. there weren't any out yet that said 'the rock' on the underpants or anything like that

I hope the AEW series 2 figures get restocked on ringside collectables because they're already gone and they're not even out yet. Scalpers selling them all for like 50 dollars on ebay

I had a William regal action figure that wore a blue button up shirt and khaki pants and I sharpied his hair and gave him a beard so he could be a Billy Mays action figure

my first figs were a toys r us set of bonecrunchers with the belts. i wanna say it included uhhhh bret hart, goldust and davey/owen. it was a christmas gift and my cousin gave me his old ring which is what i used exclusively. i stopped getting figures i think when pokemon came out and that kind of overtook wrestling for me, especially when goldberg lost.


e: okay im mixing up the two TRU exclusives



i had the top one. i think i used the remco knockoffs they sold at the bodega by us that came with belts they were like $3 each. they were kinda shaped like he man figures and the belts always had different colored straps with a generic sticker in the front. at first i had a silver strap and a black strap so those were my intercontinental and wwf championship and when i saw a couple figs that had a green strap i bought those for my tag titles and just used the remco figs as jobbers

these were the knockoffs i got, this specific packaging, i remember it because the wrestler in the art looked exactly like the wrestler character from streets of rage 2.

Remco did He-Man knock-offs using DC Comic's Warlord and actually getting the Conan license. It's not surprising that the wouldn't let those molds go to waste

I had 2 rubber WWE figures that had holes for your thumb in the butt: JYD and Hogan.

I think the idea was you were supposed to thumb wrestle with them

I almost had a mint-condition vintage 1990 Ted DiBiase figure, but my cousin's kids opened the packaging up.
