Yikes. If I had monsters under my bed, they’d all be leaping out the window right about now. I’d almost forgotten I’d be getting a big box from Wicked Cool Toys, makers of a ton of fun licensed toys in plenty of popular brands (Marvel, DC, Disney, TMNT, and more). Anwyay, while at Toy Fair earlier this year, I got an invite to see what was coming in terms of WWE goodies in their Ringside Collectibles line and at the end of the tour, the bunch of us who attended were told by Jan Van Tine (the hyper-perky lady with the computer memory you should meet one of these days because she’ll remember your name even if you’re in a group of about 50 people) we’d be getting a big surprise in the post.
Well, color me surprised (and how!). It seems that only 100 of these were made, the outer carton says it’s #75 of 100, but that seems to refer to the carton, as the figure says it’s #1 of 100. Oh, I’ll work through all that numbering in a bit. Right now, I need to figure out where to put Mr. C before he starts stomping around and eating whatever is left in the fridge. Hmmm. I wonder what over-sized plastic wrestlers eat, anyway? I think I have one or two Crashlings left over from Toy Fair here, so perhaps I’ll drop those in the carton and see what happens. Wait. If he eats them all, I’ll need MORE Crashlings! A-ha. THAT’S how they get you sucked in to buying all that stuff, folks! The secret is OUT.
