I been really enjoying writing about wrestling figures and I’m gonna finish this series with the LJN line. Big chunks of rubber and paint crashing into each other! They are really indestructible sometimes. What makes the LJN figs playable are the poses the superstars come in. And you can forget about Rick Rude making this list. Worst LJN ever!
5. Greg Valentine
Valentine was a figure I got much later in life from a family friend. I didn’t use him much since Hasbro was popular at the time. He mostly stood on a shelf.
4. George Steele
Talk about a brick of rubber. Maybe a bulldog or Japanese arm drag but in all reality he could splash a laying opponent. I liked Steele growing up so this fig has a lot of sentimental value.
3. S.D. Jones
The longest IC Champion when I was booking my fantasy league. SD could do it all. I gave him a chokeslam finisher.
2. Ricky Steamboat
Perfect hand for an iron claw submission or something simple as a drop kick.
1. Hulk Hogan
From leg drops, diving elbow to an hurricanrana. The Hogan fig could do it all.
The one LJN that never crossed my path was Randy Savage. Never saw one in a store or yard sale. What are some of your favorite WWF LJN figures?
