LJN Toys - Wrestling Superstars: Bendies; Jesse 'The Body' Ventura
Wrestling Superstars was an action figure toyline based on the wrestlers of the WWF. They were made by the toy and video game company LJN from 1984 to 1989. The toys were made of solid rubber and were very accurate in appearance to their real life counterparts, however they did not have any articulation. The original 8'' figures were the most successful series from the line but that success spawned other versions such as Thumb Wrestlers and Bendies.
LJN closed its toy division in 1989, cancelling the Wrestling Superstars series with it. The last 6 figures which were produced did manage to get released by Grand Toys of Canada. They were the distributor of the entire Wrestling Superstars series in Canada and are still a fairly large toy company to this day. Hasbro were awarded the license as the main WWF action figure producer the following year.
These figures have become quite collectible, partly due to wrestling's ongoing popularity and the 1980s nostalgia boom. However, it is somewhat difficult to find them in good condition. The paint on the figures would easily come off during play, leaving most opened figures (out of their package or card) in poor shape. The price for 'loose' mint figures ranges from $10–$75. In poor condition, most of the line isn't worth very much due to their great abundance. The figures that remain carded can command much higher prices. In good condition, a 'mint on card' figure can range from about $20 for a Mean Gene Okerlund to $500–$800 or more for a Bret Hart. Other carded figures that can sell for hundreds are Warlord, Ultimate Warrior, Davey Boy Smith, Dynamite Kid and the Hart.
Padme figure from Star Wars, Episode III: Revenge of the Sith
We just got back from an afternoon shopping just across the border in Abbotsford, B.C., Canada. In the Zellers store near the Sumas-Abbottsford border crossing I found 6-8 action figures of Padme from Star Wars, Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. I had never seen an Episode III Padme figure in the U.S., and hadn't even seen her pictured on any of the Hasbro ads showing available toys. So I suspect there is no U.S. version of the ROTS Padme. I was totally amazed to run across her, and just couldn't leave without one. I took a few other pictures of her out of the package, with her standing on the base, so I'll post one of those as well. And I may as well scan the little "data sheet" about her that came folded up in the bottom of the package.
Oh yeah -- and Canada also has other figures I don't think we had here in the states. The back of the Padme packaging lists and pictures: Count Dooku, Chancellor Palpatine, Bail Organa, Plo Koon, Battle Droid, C-3PO, Padme, Agen Kolar, Shakk Ti, Kit Fisto, Royal Guard (purple rather than red), and Mon Mothma.
