Someone Bought This: WCW Tuff Talkin’ wrestlers are kind of strange

6 Submitted by on Fri, 22 May 2015, 02:00
Crapper Paul S. writes: Toy Biz’s WCW Toys in the final years of the company tended to be more impressive than the WWF toys of the time, but something about these “Tuff Talkin’ Wrestlers” figures seems off. Perhaps it’s the creepy way their mouths move. Also DDP’s figure looks like they made an Enzo Amore toy 15 years too early. Continue Reading...

Check out this vintage WWF Fruit Juice drink carton from 1991.  “10% Real Fruit Juice”? So what’s the other 90% of it, then?! Hmm… Kudos to the people who made this stuff for not using artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives, I suppose. Ooo, there’s an Action Cut-Out on the back? I can’t wait to see what it is! Let’s check Continue Reading...

WCW, Merchandise Catalog 1999 First things first: I know that merchandise is generally the realm of Someone Bought This!, but today’s write up is a bit more extensive than what we generally cover there.  Besides, that particular column actually originated thanks to large inductions wherein I would look at magazine inserts and catalogs such as this, so consider this a blast from Continue Reading...

Bryan from the WCW Worldwide Blog posted this picture of Judy Bagwell coming out at Bash At The Beach 1999 in celebration of Mother’s Day I love that she’s wearing a customized airbrushed shirt of her and her son Marcus Alexander Bagwell (she’d never call her boy Buff Bagwell!) with her wearing the top hat. It looks like something she had Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: Go to a WWF house show and you gotta buy a WWF Program!

14 Submitted by on Mon, 04 May 2015, 23:45
I found this old WWF Program on eBay (Steve Lombardi and Barry Horowitz on the same card?! Somebody pinch me!) and it reminded me of going to so many house shows. Picture it- Sicily, Italy. 1927… (Oh wait, wrong flashback. Sorry!) Anyway… It’s the late-80’s and the WWF is coming to your town! “BOY, OH BOY!” as Nathaniel would say. You pay $30 Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: WWF In Your Face 3-D magazine

11 Submitted by on Sun, 03 May 2015, 02:00
I found this WWF In Your Face Best Of 1999 3-D Magazine on eBay. It comes complete with two pairs of red and blue 3-D glasses. Man, this gimmicky magazine sums up The Attitude Era perfectly. 3-D! Edgy! Attitude! Yeah! This magazine actually reminds me of this exchange from the Muppet-Vision 3-D attraction at Disney: Kermit the Frog: [talking about the Continue Reading...

Someone Bought This: Stylish and fancy WCW top hats

7 Submitted by on Fri, 01 May 2015, 02:00
WCW sold top hats featuring Kevin Nash and Diamond Dallas Page. They’re perfect for any formal event! Well, maybe not… Unless your goal is that you never want to be invited to another formal event ever again in your lifetime. But wait a minute- there’s no Buff Bagwell Top Hat in this lineup? What an outrage!  ...

Oh Hasbro, how could you NOT have made a figure of legendary WWF magician Phantasio?! I mean granted, he’s no Fruit Pie The Magician… …but he’s still pretty cool! (Check out his best WWF match!). Thankfully, some resourceful fan has corrected this horrible oversight with this awesome custom figure. Sadly it does not come with his opponent’s underwear, nor Earl Continue Reading...

There’s something really unsettling about this Hulk Hogan chair. You can sit on Hulk’s lap! “Look! I’ve got a nice delicious apple for you! Now just sit on ol’ Uncle Hulk’s lap and tell him all your problems, little dude!”. It’s part of a set that includes the Hulk Hogan chair, an Ultimate Warrior chair, and a table....
