Not sure where to begin with this one. An indie wrestling company years after its peak signs up to make figures with a toy company that specializes in Mego revival stuff. I hope it works out (and they'll probably sell fine over at Ringside Collectibles), but no male wrestler on ROH's roster is really must-have to me.

Now, if this was a line of SHIMMER figures, and they were telling me I could get Havok and Cheerleader Melissa, then I'd steal the deed to my parents' house to finance the line.

Curious what format these are going to take. I'd have to imagine the smart move's going to be making these as similar to Mattel WWE as possible.

Well, their legends figures from years ago were pretty good but in order to be as good as Mattel's their gonna have to step up IMO. The Briscos, Adam Cole, Michael Elgin and Mschief, A.J. Styles, Christopher Daniels and Frankie Kazarian would all be great provided they are made accurately!

MsChif is an awesome example of a figure I'd want, because she has a great look, and even a signature color (the intense green she dyes her hair with and has in her costumes). That's the thing for me: a lot of the male RoH dudes have pretty unspectacular looks. Wrestling needs more bright colors these days, anyway. Black tights or street clothes work for some guys, but everyone wants to do that.

Reminds me of when every wrestler wore street clothes. I would love some ROH figures, though. Chris Daniels would be on my list.

Yeah, RoH's timing on this is pretty solid, because now they have access to decently well-known guys that were formerly under TNA contract like Styles, Daniels, and Kazarian. The big coup they should be looking for, now that he's retired, is CM Punk; he owns his name and likeness rights, so maybe he'd be willing to cut a deal. At the very least it'd probably annoy the WWE, and I'm sure that would amuse him.

Also, Veda Scott action figure or SWL riots.
