Mattel Andre The Giant figure

Apparently this Andre The Giant figure is coming soon from Mattel.

Sing along, Crappers:

“Disco Andre! Disco Andre! Disco Andre! Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!”

Apparently Andre is carrying on the fine French tradition of wearing a dead animal pelt on his head to honor his ancestors.

    Or Bob Pinciotti…

    Oh man they got Gary Spivey’s hair color all wrong.

    • Thomas says:

      I’m glad I’m not the only one whose mind immediately went to Gary Spivey. Although, to me, without the hair it looks like the unholy love child of Nancy Walker and Ron Perlman.

  3. Brad says:

    Or Juan Epstein

  4. The Scanian Maniac says:

    When did Andre start wearing the Afro hairdo?
    Is it true, that before his gigantism took a toll on his body he was a pretty lean and agile wrestler and could even do moonsaults?

    • Scrooge McSuck says:

      He was lean and agile, capable of throwing dropkicks. Moonsaults? Early 70’s? In the voice of Gorilla Monsoon, “highly unlikely.”

  5. Boz says:

    “Disco Andre likes . . . er . . . laundry? Things in a quandary? New Order’s ‘Blue Monday?”

  6. El Rob says:

    French ‘fro Andre didn’t wear the one strap singlet, if they were paying attention to detail to begin with…that was debuted after he lost the dated hairdo.

  7. Emerson Witner says:

    He goes around reminding people that they are Mr. Wonderful

  8. Anon says:

    I mean look at that..

    It’s terrible.

  9. Jordan Mishkin says:

    I didn’t know Andre was part broccoli.

  10. Brandon says:

    That is actually just bad presentation from whomever posted that pic. In actuality the fro and singlet can be removed. Underneath the singlet is a pair of trunks and underneath the fro is his shorter hair. So they’re actually giving you the option of either 70’s Andre or 87 Andre.

  11. The Kid From Iowa says:

    Looks more like George Wendt with a bad haircut…

  12. MistaMaddog says:

    If it comes with four girls you can put on his arms….SOLD!!!

  13. Vealchop says:

    His hair looks like a bent cat turd.

  14. Ben says:

    Well, he actually did have a huge afro early in his carreer. Mind you, it was before he started wearing a singlet.

    • "The Big Cheese" Paul Kraft says:

      Yeah. I just wish they made the afro on the figure look less… weird. 🙂

  15. B says:

    In all fairness, whoever took the proto photo screwed it up. The wig is removeable and is supposed to be seen without the singlet. When the wig is actually placed properly it looks pretty good.

  16. Brian says:

    Maybe Andre’s son was actually Gary Spivey and not the Giant??
