I liked the end of the podcast when they were listing their dream black card series figures. I think some of their choices would have been too early for the next wave/series (Supreme Fighting Machine Kama, King Kong Bundy, Allied Powers Davey Boy, Mr. Bob Backlund). Since the green card figures were basically from late 1993 and the orange card series figures were from early 1994, I would say that the black card series figures would have to be from mid 1994. If so, these would be the seven figures I would think would make up the black card series (went with 7 since that's how many the green card series and the rumored orange card series had):
Bret Hitman Hart
King of Harts Owen Hart
Jerry the King Lawler
Thurman Sparky Plugg
Jacques (the Quebecers)
Pierre (the Quebecers)
I liked the discussion too, but yeah, your list is pretty much spot on with the timeline. Hasbro was always at least a year behind the product. So figures in mid 94' would have been based on the mid 94' roster. Purple Undertaker may even be pushing it, since he didn't wear that attire until SummerSlam 94'. But, a Bret and Undertaker would have been well overdue since they hadn't had figures since the red cards and were at the top of the roster.
I remember the Zombie/Rudat fantasy pin set, and those wouldn't have been out til probably 2 years after the line ended. W/ Godwin and Undertaker w/facial appliance.
