Edited some of the photos to remove shadows. I'm still missing some legends that are from this period but am running out of room to display (some of these I've had previously, but traded):
King Kong Bundy Akeem The Brain Busters Rockers (recently ordered) Hacksaw Jim Duggan Texas Tornado Kamala Vader (recently ordered) Brian Pillman Kane
In addition to the existing figures that I still need, I'm debating on expanding the collection back through '87 to include the upcoming JYD, Ricky Steamboat. Even though the Hogan is from '87, I'm absolutely ordering that when available (you could make an argument it's from very early '88 anyway). Expanding the collection would also include existing figures of Hillbilly Jim, Iron Sheik, Nikolai Volkoff, Bob Orton, Paul Orndorff, George Steel.
haha I know. He's probably 5'10 legit, while I am a little more than 6'0". I'm not tall by any means, but Shawn is a little shorter than me. Plus, he is slouching a little. When I first walked upto him and shook his hand, it was a strange feeling being taller than my childhood idol. He was so pleasant to all of the fans too.
I am sorta going for the same type of thing except I've only been collecting for a little over a year so I am missing some of the ones you have so jealous
Thanks man, you'll get there. This collection, like most on here, wasn't compiled overnight. That's why I like to keep the old images up from when I started to see how my collection has grown. It started when I saw the two figures from my all-time favorite match of Savage vs. Warrior at WM VII and it just grew from there. There would be several months where I wouldn't add a thing because there weren't any good releases, or anything that I needed to get right away. The year 2013 comes to mind, specifically the time period between Elite 24 and Elite 30. Only 1 figure interested me during those series (Crush, and even that was very low anticipation), but then there were times where I would get several figures from one series/release schedule (E23, E30, recently with DM Hogan/DM Razor/Target HOF).
After I get Razor and a 1990-1991 Hulk Hogan & another 90/91 Macho King w/cowboy hat and bandana, I could pretty much stop collecting and be happy if I needed to, but of course I won't. There are other figures I want and look forward to hopefully seeing like Earthquake, Doink, Sid, another Rick Rude, British Bulldog from 91, Jim Neidhart, additional Savages and Warriors, Nasty Boys, but I think Mattel has done a fantastic job.
I love your collection and recently just got back in the game, just bought DM Hogan, HOF warrior, HOF slaughter and elite 29 Andre to start the collection, I will only collect figures up to 1995 or around that time. Out of all those figures which one's your favourite? Again fantastic collection, hopefully mine will be like yours one day.
