WWE and Topps To Make “Garbage Pail Kids” Wrestlers

If you like being grossed out, then you probably owned a few Garbage Pail Kids trading cards at some point. Time has treated these grotesque Cabbage Patch kids well, as they continue to thrive with new cards, toys, and other merch. Today, they take part in a surprising new official collaboration with the biggest sports entertainment company in the world.

WWE is teaming with Topps to make WWE Garbage Pail Kids, which will include current superstars as well as Legends. The product line will run the gamut of clothes, cards, and perhaps more.

A new line of WWE/ GPK T-shirts and hats will be available on WWEShop.com and Spencer’s.

WWE Shop will offer T-shirts for Becky Lynch, Ronda Rousey, John Cena, Seth Rollins and The Miz as “GPKs.”

WWE x GPK tees with “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, Randy Savage, Ric Flair, The Undertaker, The Ultimate Warrior and Andre the Giant will be available at Spencer’s starting March 21.

Collectible trading card packs will also be available for ordering on Topps.com, starting March 12.

Here is the official checklist of who will be in the pack of 13 cards:

1. Gigantic ANDRE
2. Breakin’ BECKY
3. C-Thru CENA
4. Savage RANDY
5. Mixed-Up MICK
6. Mouthy MIZ & Maryse
7. Slick RICK
8. Rowdy RONDA
9. Brawlin’ ROLLINS
10. Seething STEVE
11. Chipped ROCK
12. Unravelled WARRIOR
13. Undead TAKER

I am definitely curious to see how the other wrestlers will look after they get the GPK treatment, and am digging the preview they have shown us. They also seem fairly up to date since they include Ronda and Becky Lynch with her “Man” gimmick. Heck, they even have Miz and Maryse’s baby in a card!

Will you be picking these up when they are released tomorrow?

Sgt. Slaughter Figure Review – WWE Flashback Series

On this episode of The Wrestling Figure Historian, we continue our look at Wal-Mart’s WWE Flashback basic series by spotlighting Sgt. Slaughter. This was a unique time for Slaughter as a heel and led to a big feud with both The Ultimate Warrior and Hulk Hogan, and garnered him this very unique figure from Mattel.

What storyline does this figure fit into, and whatever happened to the Atomic Noogie? Watch the video to find out.

Mattel reveals Retro Packaging for Exclusive Macho Man Randy Savage Figure

Oooooh yeeaaaahh! Wrestling figure fans will be elated to hear the news on a new figure that may be hard to find, but worth the hunt.

Earlier today, Mattel unveiled their special new packaging for their exclusive Macho Man Randy Savage. The box harkens back to the old WWF arcade cabinets, albeit with a new name. It makes a figure that was previously just a new deco for an existing figure into a must-have collectable.

The Macho Man figure is coming soon to a Gamestop near you, and will retail for around $30. It’s quite the price jump from previous Gamestop exclusives like their Samoa Joe and “List of Jericho” Chris Jericho, but the deluxe packaging is likely the reason for this leap in cost. Also joining Randy Savage is a new Shawn Michaels in his Rockers era outfit. No news at this time on whether or not this is the start of a new series for Gamestop or just a one-off, and if HBK will share this box art.

Will you be adding this figure into your wrestling collection?
