WWF Hasbro Luke Bushwhackers figure

Yes, Hasbro sold the Luke and Butch Bushwhackers figures separately at some point instead of packaging them together as a team.

“You know, I like Luke of The Bushwhackers. I’m glad I can just buy his figure by itself instead of having to buy both Bushwhackers at the same time in a set. I’m going to push Luke to the moon in my Hasbro Wrestling Federation”.

…said no wrestling fan, ever.

I wonder which figure sold more? Luke or Butch?

    I confused the two and only realized my mistake many years after they last wrestled for a big organization- not sure how that happened, it is not as if they were the Beverlys or something- Luke & Butch were around for seemingly forever.

    I once went to a signing of theirs, at a car dealership on Long Island. The line was marched by Luke and Butch (they nodded and kinda said “Hello”) and then we could take our “8×10 photo”. Two things about the photos: 1) they were all badly Xeroxed images of a WWF publicity 8X10 and 2) Luke signed a pile of photos for both him and Butch, while likewise, Butch’s pile featured his signature (and his version of Luke’s).

    Hmmmm. That may partially explain why I confused their identities.

    My mother bought us Luke and not Butch. It was like 2 or 3 years before we got Butch

    • The House says:

      My mom did the same. We also had Ax but no Smash for years. I’m pretty sure I made Ax feud with Luke for a long time.

    How could they not call their special move The Sardine Slam?

    If there were jobber action figures, would there have been a Moondog Spot action figure with no Rex and a High Energy Koko B. Ware figure with no Owen Hart to match?

    I remember getting this figure as a kid. Unlike everyone else, though, I got both Bushwhackers at the same time. I also got Marty Jannetty and Shawn Michaels as the Rockers the same day (I believe my sixth birthday) and had tag team matches all day. I dare say that those matches were better booked than the current tag team division.

    • Andy says:

      There was a high energy Owen with no Koko match….he was mismatched with a New Foundation Jim the Anvil though….confused yet?

    This is actually awesome.

    I’m from New Zealand and this man is our third in command supreme ruler behind Peter Jackson and Lorde.

    Luke did win one singles title in his career; the NWA Southeastern United States Junior Heavyweight Championship

  10. simongr81 says:

    Butch never one one singles title and all sixteen different tag titles he held were with Luke.

  11. Alexandru says:

    Obviously Hasbro sold them separately so they could get more money like a lot of toy companies seem to do with certain products. Cheap yet effective,though selling tag teams separately is just goofy I mean who wouldn’t just want one of the Buschwackers?

    • "The Big Cheese" Paul Kraft says:

      Good point. I admit this tactic would have totally worked on me because I would have wanted both of them.

  12. The Doctor of Style says:

    Hasbro sold The Headshrinkers (Fatu & Samu) separately, too.

    Oddly, the old LJN figures included a Demolition Ax but no Smash.

  13. Mister Forth says:

    Was there ever an Adrian Adonis figure that they could have an awkward encounter with.

  14. Christopher Olsen says:

    I bought them separately also! Except I used them as The Sheepherders with my WCW Galoob figures.

  15. Scrooge McSuck says:

    This looks like the second Luke figure, from Series 9 or 10. The same set with indivually sold Headshrinkers, as well as GIANT GONZALES, purple tight Razor, black and silver tight HBK, and Marty JAnnetty. My local “mall” toy store sold them all in like 1995 or 96 for $2.50 each. I bought all but LUKE lol.

  16. ChrisV says:

    Yep. I believe this was the second release, when each figure was sold individually, as the original tag team packaging format had been dropped.
    The original Bushwhackers figures were together as a set.
    Luke did wrestle in ROH for a brief period on his own. So, you can use your Luke solo figure as part of ROH if they ever release ROH action figures.

    With Demolition, they released Smash and Crush together, so you had to buy Ax by himself.

    • Hulk6785 says:

      I had the Demolition set. I never got Ax. I just pretended that Crush was Ax.

      Also, I did have the Bushwhackers together.

    Screw Luke, everyone knows Butch was the real star of the team!
