I dig this TNA Hogan/Sting two-pack.

that is pretty cool.  i think they need to shrink their heads just a tad, but i love that hogan head otherwise.

but why skimp on the hip articulation?  i hate that.

I posted the TNA Hogan figure (the Deluxe Series 2 one) on my Twitter yesterday because it was so awesome looking (and I'm not a huge Hogan mark).  I showed Dad the two-pack above and he really thought they were cool.  It's the first exclusive like that in a long while that I've actually wanted to purchase.

I've been hunting for Deluxe Hogan all week. Only figure not on the shelves.

Also TNA announced a Legends Shane Douglas coming soon. Finally Jakks gets a hold of The Franchiiiiiiiiiise!!!1 :P

I saw a couple Deluxe Hogans (not to rub it in).  There was a ton of TNA product on the shelves finally at TRU.  It was incredible.  I really like some of the figs, but my figure budget ain't what it used to be so I only got Sting.

The Legends Hogan looked pretty nice in the video review on ringside if you want an Axe Bomber Hogan.

That's his Avatar costume. That figure is clogging the pegs of the three TRU's I shop at.

It's the best Rey.  Sadly, Mattel has already put out 30 other Rey's so it's unlikely any other Rey will sell that well (at least for awhile).

Yeah they're really milking him for every variant they can think of. I'm satisfied with the original Elite one.

Hope they release different costumes of the Legends like Rick Rude with different airbrushed tights, Warrior with more his classic blond hair look, Road Warriors in red shoulder pads, etc.

Picked up WWE Legends Series 2, Jake "The Snake" Roberts.  Wanted Rude and Kamala, which they had, but Jake was the only one I budgeted for.  They had some TNA figs as well so it's good to see new wrestling product out in the toy stores.

Picked up WM Swagger and Legends Funk to make Angle & Flair. Need to swap out arms for Angle as well as add a star to the front of his singlet and remove the Swagger detailing on the back. Flair needs the hair repainted as well as RF's on the trunks and boots, but I'm loving the way these two look!

And yeah, that Macho is siiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiick!

I dunno, something off about Angle's head size

Also who decided on that facial expression? He looks like he's about to cry  :'(

I think it has to do with the shape of his head, it looks off because of how wide the scan is. I would try the R3 heads, but they're all with hair and tan. I will be redoing the eye brows as well, they do look bad.

Took some more shots with 3 of Flair's Jakks robes...

Ringside got in Legends series 3 this week and started shipping them out. Here's some loose pics over on WF of the whole set.

Tried this Angle head, the only other one in matching skin tone I have and if the torso was as wide as Taker's I think it could work, but, ah well.  :dash_mini:

I do not. But the skintones wouldn't match either. I just saw a custom Angle posted on WF, using elite Santino's body and one of the tanned Angle heads and it looks perfect. Might have to go that route...

Joe's skin is painted. Use nail polish remover with Acetone to remove the skin color paint. It's not a perfect match, but it's so close you can barely tell a difference.

I've yet to see M$M, Piper or Jericho in stores, so I ordered EG Jericho & Elite 6 Punk from ringside yesterday. Should be here by Saturday. Debating making an Elite Jericho using that head and lower legs.

There isn't even a sign of Legends 2 here in Southern California yet.

Kind of given up til they magically show up and clogg the pegs like Legends 1 is doing now.

Meanwhile, I'm just hunting for this guy
