Basic question for the board:

Which of these action figure sets hold the best childhood memories?

For me, it was absolutely the Hasbro figures.

See, giving the celebrity part-timers a main event spot isn’t a new concept...

Oh man the smart fans must have been pissed back in the day when I would book the Chewbacca figure as a special appearance world beater in battle royals.

That's bullshit. Chewy comes in once a year for a WM payday. He doesn't respect the business. He doesn't give a shit about the boys busting their ass on the road, working Sunday double-shots, not being home for the holidays, numbing themselves with every substance under the sun in order to keep working, so they can keep their spot. When these guys are broke and crippled, will Chewy be there to help with their medical bills or repair their broken relationships? Tell Chewbacca to fuck Chewbacca.

Man, if you thought Michael Hayes was pissed whenever Dusty and Andre would come into Mid-South for the big Superdome pay days...

I hope Chewy lost a hair vs. hair match.

...and why not? Chewy's entrance music

I used to make belts out of cardboard and glue coins to them.

You sir are a fucking genius. I can't believe this is the first time I've heard of this idea. I had endless Galoob belts for everything but the heavyweight title (which came with my WWF ring)

I had the Remco AWA Ric Flair and Larry Zbyszko two-pack. I got them for my 8th birthday. Before that, I had the LJN figures. Then it was the WWF Hasbro figures starting with the first series in 1990. The Hasbro figures were my favorite. One of my favorite matches to have was Smash vs. Repo Man. 

Image result for ric flAIR AWA REmco figure

Flair looks suspiciously like Fred Blassie.

We were first board going or close to it with the Mark Henry love. A monster and a monster who can talk. Hall of Pain Henry was my favourite version.

When TapouT was MMA. Something watching a WWE commercial, I think at WrestleMania XXXI with wrestlers wearing TapouT. I have a few TapouT tops from the MMA days.

Those early promos are weird to watch now. Not only the name, but Mark plays the Undertaker as more of a extremely giddy about his job, Undertaker rather than the Lurch/Clint Eastwood character he’d end up playing. He also drooled a lot.

He should have kept the body bag gimmick. I'm surprised Russo didn't make him a necropheliac in the late 90's.

Me, too. I suppose a favorite depends on when you grew up, but man, I loved those Hasbros (with the Galoobs mixed in). The hours I spent putting cards together: I had one of those tri-fold presentation boards (like kids used for school projects) and would pin up the match cards using WWF/WCW trading cards. I also had notebooks full of event cards I ran. I went back about 10 years ago and re-bought the entire collection.

You went full Jim Cornette! Never thought about using the trading cards to pin up the match cards.

I did this too with a whiteboard my grandmother scored from her office when she retired. I'd sit there with a bunch of markers trying to draw the SummerSlam logo and shit

I can never get tired of watching this match.

That brings up a good question: pre-2000, what are the best American babyface-vs-babyface matches where no one turns heel at the end?

Oh I'm sure Russo suggested it several times.  Undertaker just had the pull to veto it or the sense to threaten McMahon with retirement and/or going to WCW each time.

HBK Vs. Cena match where they went an hour from that Raw comes to mind. Also Hogan Vs. Warrior I is another.

That match was also in 2007.
