I thought this could be fun. We have had countless threads about what our first Hasbro figures were or what our latest pick ups were.
However, what were the last Hasbro figures you got as a kid when you were actively playing with them?
For me it was blue card Marty Jannetty, The Headshrinkers and Giant Gonzalez. I got them in a store in Scotland called Toy Master. What I remember is that Giant Gonzalez was a real impulse buy as I hated the character and he had been off TV forever!
What were the last figures you managed to get in a store when you were a kid?
If You Live In The USA And Can Help Me Out With Getting Mattel WWE Retro Figures It Would Be Awesome!!!!
I love this line, but collecting them here in the UK is impossible, I would have an easier time finding the magic lamp and getting a Genie to hook me up with them

my local CVS carried random Hasbros figures like Hacksaw Jim Duggan all the way until late 90's, Maybe 1998. It was odd but they just kept stocking purple card Duggan and a few others like Tatanka. I remember buying a bunch for customs.
Thinking of release order, it most likely would have had to be Giant Gonzalez, Lex, or perhaps a purple card that was hanging around on shelves late. I don't believe I bought any other dark blue carded figures at retail because I found them all uninteresting.
Edit: this doesn't include garage sales or scoring some at toy stores. I do recall finding some green card figures in 2000-01 for 50 cents each

God that sends me back!! last figures I recall buying during my toy phase was probably the Headshrinkers or Giant Gonzales (who was my Andre as I never had Andre as a kid!!)
but years later during my eBay days...... I had to buy Andre, he was the one who sparked my re-interest in picking up the rest and then bought virtually everyone else from series 10 and most of 11. oh, and backfilled a couple of gaps like Dibiase and Hacksaw from series 9
although, not sure if it counts but at 22, I still played with all of the new figures!! I never lost my childhood love for them

The Legion of Doom …..I wasn’t a kid playing with them anymore but I found them Moc at a flea market for $25 & flipped out ….they were ill fated though, I had them for about 3 months until my cousin who was 6 at the time decided she would rip them open because she liked the spiked shoulder pads …..sad sad day but sh*t happens unfortunately

I wasn't a huge fan of Hasbro when they first came out only because I had LJNs and thought the Hasbro figures were a step backwards. But I worked at a mom and pop video store in late 96 and next door was a Winn Dixie. And I had been in their hundreds of times because it was the local grocery store we had in town. But one night I ran in to get something and I just walked down the toy aisle and they had Randy Savage #4. I bought and it was the last one I bought in a store, but was the first to make me want to go back and buy more. I got more through mail order and eBay.
As a kid, i have no ing clue. That was a LONG time ago. But since Ive been catching up to completion, I think the last ones were either black tights HBK or The Smoking Gunns. (Not counting my loose Flair since Ive had a MOC Flair for years)

In my hometown in Wales in the summer of 1995, for some reason my local Woolworths got a bunch of the purple card series, so we managed to get Rick Steiner and Ted Dibiase. They had all the others though.

Last ones as a kid I guess you would say were technically Razor and Shawn variants from S ten. Though I did get the green cards through figures Inc. And I did sorta play with them, but I was pretty cautious to not damage them.
