    I collcect the mattel figures. They're not MOC, they're all loose! I don't have any legend figures though (They're quite expensive/hard to get) However I have Macho Man from is Battle pack with CM Punk


  • Registered Users Posts: 175 ✭✭ mitchmeister


    I collect the legends only, smyths had a few diesels in stock the other day.
    But yes they are a bt hard to come by, but when you do find em it's like you have struck gold, I found one big bossman elite in smyths and have never seen one since.

    While on holidays last year my mother painted my bedroom walls an awful depressing colour so since then I've begun covering the walls in figures :D

    I got Yokozuna Elite Mattel, Macho King Randy Savage ringside collectibles exclusive figure and on Monday I got the Diesel Elite Mattel figure. I have a load of the normal figures MOC on my walls as well.

    Anybody have any MOC Sheamus figures? :p

    Where did u get Yokozuna? In shops? I know it's avail online but would rather get them in shops save on shipping!

    I am looking to get the ringside collectables savage Nwo figure that's pretty cool

    There's loads of Ringside collectible figures I want but after shipping and for one or more figures the cost is too high.

    Yoko figure I got from Wrestling Mania in St. Stephens Green Shopping Centre.

    Anybody know any good places for figures other than the obvious?

    It would seem either smyths, toymaster, wrestling mania or online.... Toy shops in the states have a bit of better selection

    The obvious are still the best places for them! However I remember for a time Smyths only carried basic John Cena figures (Which was quite the pain in the arse) I'd probably say www.wrestlingworld.co.uk Would be a good site, it's cheaper than ringside anyway!:D

    *EDIT* Just remembered that they carry the Ringside Exclusives!

    wrestlingworld have a pretty high delivery cost as well, I asked them on facebook before and the figures ain't the cheapest. There markup is fairly high so with the cost of P&P it comes out high again. I even looked into buying them wholesale and selling them on ebay and keeping the ones i wanted. ;)

    Got close to all of them you're best bet is to join a wrestling figure forum such wfigs.com and make friends in the US, Legends figures were a seperate line that sold in the US only but its been since cancelled and they put what they call flashbacks in the regular line thats why you all saw Booker T, Bossman, Yokozuna and Diesel lately Mankind is coming up in the next assortment too in smyths due end of month, Heres a vid of my collection

    Mattel make good figures but their headscans are usually AWFUL! They've made a Hunico figure that looks like a skinny David Otunga!

    thats true alot of them are poor but they are still miles ahead of the old Jakks ones that came before in my opinion :)


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,520 Hashtag_HEEL


    Delighted Smyths have Elite 16 ATM! Any advice on whether to get Punk or Diesel? . It says Smyths in Jervis street with have Elite 17 on the 30TH of September (Definitely picking up Mankind!), and Wrestling Mania are getting the "Best of 2012" series, so I'll be looking for Daniel bryan!


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,520 Hashtag_HEEL


    The Smyths Series 16 may turn out to be only John Cena figures, I will be in Blanchardstown tomorrow looking for the Eddie and Ultimate Warrior ones myself.

    The site says that both Punk and Diesel are in stock separately.

    On the Smyths Website when you click "Select Store" it says "Out Of Stock. Next available date: 30.09.2012"

    Bryans BO2012 Headscan looks AWESOME!

    Sorry I was looking at the standard series 16 rather than the Elite 16.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,520 Hashtag_HEEL


    Things are on the up in Smyths. They've LOADS of elites and basics of the recent series' ! I got E16 Punk last week. Great figure, pity about the headscan though!

    Because my seats for WM28 were package bought seats so I'll be buying a package for WM30 but not for WM29
