More Retro WWE Championship Belts from Wrestling Figure Workshop!!!

Check out our review of a new set of championship belts for the Hasbro WWF figures and Mattel WWE Retro figures from The Wrestling Figure Workshop.

Previously, we looked at their black titles from the late 80’s and early 90’s era of WWF that would have come with the Hasbro figures. This time, WFW is taking things one step further and giving us a set of white Intercontinental and World Championship belts, along with the yellow intercontinental belt that Ultimate Warrior would have worn at Wrestlemania 6 and the purple world championship belt that Sgt Slaughter had around the time of Wrestlemania 7.

Custom WWF Hasbro Championship belts from Wrestling Figure Workshop – Review

We love our vintage WWF Hasbro figures, but we were robbed of having championship belts for these toys during our youth. Today, that all changes!

Thanks to the UK-based Wrestling Figure Workshop, we now have classic style WWF Heavyweight, Intercontinental and Tag Team titles for our 90s era figures (which also fit Mattel’s WWE Retro line too)! Take a look at the video to see what they are like, and if they are worth picking up for your wrestling toy collection.

WATCH: Arnold Schwarzenegger recalls story about “Andre the Giant” for new HBO documentary

Arnold Schwarzenegger recalls an eventful dinner with Andre. Arnold picked up the check, so Andre picked up Arnold…literally.

Andre the Giant premieres April 10. The film, presented by HBO Sports and WWE, is produced by JMH Films in association with Ringer Films. The film will also be available on HBO On Demand, HBO NOW, HBO GO and partners’ streaming services.

In 1973, Andre joined the organization, where McMahon Sr. famously billed him as Andre the Giant. Andre’s unique voice and athletic prowess, coupled with his more than 500-pound, seven-foot, four-inch frame, made him an unforgettable attraction.

HBO Sports and WWE are partnering for the first time ever on the feature-length presentation, which combines never-before-seen footage and revealing interviews for a comprehensive and intimate portrait of one of this largely unknown figure. The wide-ranging documentary explores Andre’s upbringing in France, his celebrated career in WWE and forays in the entertainment world, and includes interviews with Vince McMahon, Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, Billy Crystal, Rob Reiner, family members and more.

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?
