Wrestling and MMA figure... Let's Get it On!!

For all the lines not covered in our themed forums. Think Thundercats, Ghostbusters, Voltron, Wrestling, Doctor Who, Power Rangers, Video Game Licenses, TV & Film Licenses... do I need to go on or did you have it figured out before I even started?

I've found figures in my toy bin that spontaneously exploded before. [wtf]

The height/build looks pretty cool. What's he top out at?

That... is AWESOME! :cool:

I bought Andre and the SDCC 2010 Undertaker. If anyone has SDCC Undertaker can they say what they think of him.

he's just a hair taller than scarabus. for the WWE stuff, that means he wins. for the real dude, he was about 7'"5 at his tallest listed height, but by that time, he was hunched over so did appear any taller than his youth... you know, when he was only 7'3". [smile]

now i just need to customize 119 beers to display him with. he rather famously pounded down that many bottles once in a 5 hr session, but there are tales of him exceeding 150 bottles before actually passing out. that's a lot of damned alcohol folks. the tales of drunk andre are legendary. like the time he and the american dream were too drunk to be interested in talking a cab home while in manhattan one year, so they abducted a horse drawn cart in the street, rode to the hotel in style, and went straight to the hotel bar to continue drinking. dusty is one of the guys who claims to have witnessed andre down over 150 bottles of beer plus some wine and vodka before passing out in a hotel hallway, where they draped a piano cover over him to make him less obtrusive for the hotel staff (since not even a combination of guys were getting him off the ground)

so... i was wrong. he's NOT bigger than show!

built on the same buck, but w/ a new upper torso. so he's slightly man-boobier, and his head's bigger, but in the totality, he's no bigger than show... still, i'm happy w/ him. as evidenced by my refusal to stop taking pictures of him. :cool:

Thanks for all the pics, DR! I'm not a big fan of the mixed soft goods stuff, but he does look really cool!

i have to say, the misses are getting on my nerves, as far as nailing likenesses. ms elizabeth doesn't look a damned thing like ms elizabeth, and the johnny ace fig, it took me three looks to figure out who he was supposed to be. i also ignore anything that's not an elite fig, cuz honestly, who wants to go backwards on articulation and accessories? the basic figs get some of the starfruit belts i've ever seen this side of knockoffs. the wrestling buddies in non-wwe characters though, that's win right there.
