The next series of 1994 WWF figures was Assortment 7577, otherwise known as the “Purple” carded set. This set was supposed to consist of: Ted DiBiase 3, Doink, Scott Steiner, Rick Steiner, Hacksaw Jim Duggan 2 and Brutus Beefcake 3. Unfortunately Beefcake was scrapped and Tatanka took his place. No redeco on Tatanka either; cheap Hasbro bastiches! LOL!
Here is a typical cardback from this assortment:
Here is a sketch of Rick Steiner, notice the reused parts that are mentioned:
Here is a pre-production sketch of “the Million Dollar Man Ted Hogan”; boy, other than Doink, this was the worst reused body part set Hasbro made:
Here even is the prototype test shot of the “Tedster”:
Next up: The Dark Blue Series!

that Brutus would have been truely awesome to have. Would have displayed greatly with, well, any of the Hogans released. I actually liked the DiBiase body, because I thought it was horrible for Hogan. DiBiase was always really lanky looking, and that body captured it well. What parts were re-used for Doink?
Thanks again for that interesting column. Now I know why my Rick Steiner don't stand still like the other figs (or only if I get one arm in the right position): because they used two complete different body parts that don't fit each other. Does anyone else have also that problem with his Rick?
