WWF Classic Superstars figures

Stretching the definition of classic to onion skin thickness, one wrestling figure at a time ...

Exhibit A

Exhibit B

Exhibit C

Exhibit D

Exhibit E

Maybe I’m the one who’s mistaken, getting “classics” confused with "legends."

Following a quick glance through a comprehensive listing of all the classic figures, I’m surprised that this toy line has reached the 22nd wave without one Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat figure having been produced. I mean, shit, they’ve got a figure of the Brooklyn Brawler! That ought to be one of the seven deadly sins.

I can see Terry Funk getting a figure but it should be as "Hardcore Legend" Terry Funk with the "Funk U" t-shirt and the striped pants. But as long as the old man is getting paid, "Chainsaw Charlie" is fine. The other four, however...you know what? Fuck you, WWE. Fuck you.

I always wondered what happened to Buff Bagwell. He should still be relatively young. Maybe he is teaching math in Pittsburgh with Virgil, or bagging groceries at the Kroger with Neil O'Donnell.

FYI - my text word is "Graft" - that is kind of funny for someone who works for the government.
