So I tried to kill 2 birds with one stone in combining two important things in wrestling in one.
 How does one combine the brutality of the barbed wire bed match and a more sanitary WWF Divas bedroom match?
oh well...lets see what Ray did.
 The Bed first came to pramanence when Edge and Lita enacted a live sex thing in the middle of the ring.  Later on divas had pillow fights in the ring with a bed.
 The only Diva figure I have right now is Trish Stratus.  Oh well....Gotta pick up more later.
 I would have prefered a more pink bedspread but this one works ok.
 But then the mattress comes off and it is a barbed wire bed!  Oh my!  Terry Funk is trying to throw Mick Foley onto the barbed wire bed!
Foley is cut up and bleeding!  Oh no!

I am finally going to be fixing those broken figures I got so for awhile the wrestling projects are going to cease.

I was not around during WCWs run.  I was strictly a WWF guy.  But I do like the concept.  The Wizard from the WWF came to WCW and became the Master.  He basically formed a group of old WWF guys that hated Hulk Hogan.  Guys Hogan used to wrestle in the WWF.
Along with Kevin Sullivan they feuded with Hogan for a long time.  They had Kamala, One Man Gang, and others.
 I posed the throne against the snakepit.  Sadly...There was never a Master figure ever made.
Come on Mattel!  Make a master figure!
It does work well with other lines as well.  Here is my Toybiz Apocalypse pondering the rule of mutantkind.

I am a child of Star Wars.  I saw it in the theater in 1977.  The original one.  I was four years old.  It captured my imagination.  I had all the toys.  When 1983 rolled around I was 11 and out of Star Wars.  ROTJ didnt really get my goose as the first two had.

In fact and I will get heat for this.  I do not believe anyone can be a real fan of Star Wars without living in a time when there was NOT Star Wars.  I am one of the originals.

I didnt want to see the Force Awakens.  I wanted to wait for the DVD as I do with most things by living here in Mexico.  Then a friend of mine of Facebook spoiled one thing.  I quickly unfollowed all of my friends who would possibly see it.

Then I told my wifey why dont we go and see it here.  IF it is playing in English.  For 25 pesos..Yup...movies are $2 down here...I saw it.  I was excited.  Only 6 people in the theater.  I wanted it to take me back to my youth.  I HAD to see it otherwise it would be spoiled for me.  Turns out my friend that spoiled it didnt really.  WheeW!

I felt...old as heck after watching it.  All of the heroes of my youth were now so frickin old.

I felt depressed after seeing it.  Not because of any characters death.  Just because it didnt transport me back as when it did when I was young.

The perils of getting old.  One day I will look as old as Han did.  As Leia did.  Certainly soon enough that Luke did.

I liked the movie well enough.  The only thing I was disappointed in was that was not an onscreen reunion of all of the originals.

Oh well...I still have my DVDs...

The most famous of these kinds of matches was between Greg Valentine and Roddy Piper at some NWA event.  I thought it was perfect for a custom match to make.
 The neck braces are held by velcro.  It is going to be great playing with them.
Oh yeah!  It will get pretty bloody around here for sure.

Everyone and their brother has already made this one.
So I figured I would do the same.  It spices up ones wrestling play for sure.
 Eric Bischoff came up with the RAW Roulette gimmick.  I think it is great.  Mine spins and everything.
Look at all the different matches one can have on it!  Really makes playtime that much cooler!

I am always trying to come up with things that will make my playtime more real in the world of wrestling.  I think these could work for Bigelow AND Kane.
Ray I am sure did an awesome job.
 Oh yeah!  Now when kane or Bigelow enter the ring the accompanying flames will help.  He originally painted them white as the pic above but I thought they were boring and had him change them to a more traditional flame.
These little wrestling things I am doing is to set the stage for the bigger playsets to come down the road.

I hope one day to do an arena entrance playset, a general manager office, etc.

I found the new Dungeons and Dragons in Laredo not too long ago.  I THOUGHT it would have the old art in it like the cover does portray.  It didnt.  And boy it sucks.  Not because it sucks but that it does not have the original art in it. That sucks! Dumb me for buying it.
I would gladly trade this box set of modern Dungeons and Dragons for a 1979 Monster Manual for sure.

Remember a little while ago I had that extra Dracula hand?  No?  Well here it is to jog your memory.


I decided it was a little boring so had Ray paint it.
Looks much better!  Like a green monster.  Loving the black fingernails.

More wrestling customs to come!

Getting these old childhood books again is a wonder from God.  I love them so much.
Here I am trying to act like ole C3PO.  The Star Wars activity books are so cool.  I have to get the other three to complete the set.  This one has a lionel playworld sticker on it.  So frickin Cool!

Still doling out the wrestling customs.  I remember this sign coming down from Survivor Series 1996 I believe it was..or it could have been the Royal rumble 1997...
I was blown away by it.  To take that much creativity for someone like Sid.
 Oh man...Ray blew me away with this one.
 Set next to my printed up crowd and it comes to life.
Oh yeah.  I may just make him the heavyweight champion just because of how cool this is.
