Throwback Thursday: Galoob WCW Wrestling Figures

Throwback Thursday: Galoob’s WCW Wrestling Figures

     Man o man did I love these figures. Even though they are static I didn’t know it at the time. All I knew was I could do all of the wrestling moves that I saw on TV with all of the characters I loved from WCW. Each figure was static in their “Finisher” move pose. So all of them were set to win at any moment.

     I had almost all of them. Mr. Z, Arn Anderson, Ric Flair, Lex Luger, Sting, the Stiener Brothers, Vader and many many more. Now there were 2 different sizes there was the 5-6 inch and the 10-11 inch figures and they all came with the same gold WCW generic championship belt.

     There were 2 different wrestling rings that you could get for them and I know that I had both. Back then wrestling was my life. You could get the Steel Cage ring or the standard WCW ring that was white and red. Both were so much fun and I know that I spent many many hours playing with all of my figures and probably GI Joes in there too.

     These toys brought me hours and hours of enjoyment in a very fun way. I would sit and watch wrestling every monday night and play with my WCW figures and these people were superheroes to me back then. I owe a lot to these figures and I hope they brought you great memories too.

New Comic Book Day: 11-19-14 (4 Months? Really Mikel?)

What Books Am I Excited For?

Here are 4 books that come out tomorrow that I think you would love it you picked them up to read. Whether you collect these issues or just read them they will be 4 of the best books out this week.

Avengers and X-Men Axis: #6(of9)

Fantastic Four #13

Inhuman #8

Magneto #12

Seriously grab these 4 books because they will be the best reads of the week… Charles Soule and Cullen Bunn and the Axis event all in the same week have me excited to see what is in store for our Marvel Universe.

Marvel’s Phase 3 Officially Announced, and It’s… (Meh)

 

It’s OFFICIAL! Marvel has finally announced its Phase 3 Movie Line up and its… Underwhelming (at best).  Aside from the 1st 2 movies announced which are Captain America: Civil War and Guardians of the Galaxy 2, I am not impressed. Without the liscenses for Fantastic Four and X-Men there is no real way that I will get behind the Infinity Gauntlet Wars Part 1 and 2.

And I couldn’t care less about Black Panther, Captain Marvel, Doc Strange, or the Inhumans. Thor: Ragnarok may be ok depending on how the handle it. So as of right now, I am not really seeing a bright hope for Marvel’s Phase 3 movie plans. But who know I have been wrong before (only if you ask my wife).

Monday Morning 9 to 5: Kid’s Birthday Party Magician

Monday Morning 9 to 5: Super Powered Normal Jobs

     Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have super powers? Yep me too, but what would it be like if the people in our every day lives had super powers too? What if it were so mundane and ordinary that everyone on Earth had a power and they had to go on living their everyday lives like it were no big deal? What current comic book superheroes would be best suited for normal blue collar jobs? That is the question at hand and each Monday I will bring you a different job that people hold everyday and I will suggest a few different Superheroes and/ or Villains that would be best suited for those jobs. I hope you enjoy, because this weeks job is:

Kid’s Birthday Party Magician

Imagine the magician at your kids party conjuring real magic and those balloon animals coming to life and playing with you children. Well if you hire Zatanna to do the party that is probably what is going to happen.

You will probably have a problem with the kid’s dads sticking around a little to long when the party starts but hey at least they will be entertained.

Picked up some Childhood Heroes today! Legion of Doom!

What A Rush!!!

 

That’s right I found the Series 30 WWE Elite Road Warrior Hawk (RIP) and Road Warrior Animal that I have been looking for! So awesome!!!

These guys were my childhood heroes, I mean I rarely got to see my father because his substance abuse problems he was in and out of jail for most of my childhood. But! when he was home we watched WWF Wrestling together and we both loved The Legion of DOOM! Road Warrior Hawk and Road Warrior Animal were so dominant and I imagined that they were me and my dad taking out all of the bad guys in the world. So for me these guys are a very large part of the good things about my childhood that stand out.

Here’s to you dad, OOOOHHHHHH WHAT A RUSH!!!!!
