More WWF Hasbro wrestling figure goodies

We're almost done playing with WWF Hasbro figures at Retro Pro Wrestling HQ, though before I put these bad boys on eBay and move on with my life, I figured we'd have one last trip down memory lane. 

Unlike the other recent posts with a particular theme, this time around, we've got a few things going on here, tag teams, feuds, randomly-gathered-together grapplers with little in common, it's all here.

Hulk Hogan and Brutus 'The Barber' Beefcake: BFFs

WWF Hasbro Figures - Hulk Hogan and Brutus 'The Barber' Beefcake
They teamed up to take on the dastardly duo of Randy Savage and Zeus at Summerslam 1989, and then again in an attempt to prize the tag team titles away from Money Inc. at Wrestlemania 9, though even when they weren't tearing it up in the ring together, Hogan and Beefcake were firm friends. When Hogan jumped ship to WCW in 1994, it was Beefcake who followed suit, adopting every possible ring name known to man before finally disappearing from the face of the earth. 

More Beefcake (probably too much)

Because you can never have enough Booty Man in your life. 

WWF Ric Flair vs. WCW Ric Flair

WWF Hasbro Figures - IRS and Tatanka renew their rivalry

Speaking of seeing double, here's a somewhat out of focus shot of WCW legend Ric Flair squaring off against his constipated WWF self. 

Pay the Gift Tax

I've mentioned a number of times on this blog that I'm a fan of Mike Rotunda's in-ring work as I.R.S, whilst the Native American Tatanka was always a firm favourite as a child. With that in mind, I couldn't resist pairing the two Million Dollar Corporation members together to relive their feud over a pre-heel-turn Tatanka's head dress.

The Nasty Boys

If there's one problem with being an adult, it's that all Brian and Jerry's talk of Getting Nasty no longer has quite the same connotations as it once did. Oh, for the loss of innocence...

The Legion of Doom

Sticking on the tag team theme, here's Road Warriors Animal and Hawk. Slightly out of shot, hidden behind the rest of the Slayer CDs, Paul Ellering and Rocco. 

Legends of the Old School

The only thing that would have made this one better, would be if I still had my other Macho Man figure.
