MWOTR Series 3 reveal & Goliath sold out!

While we did not have the prototype in hand, fans got to see the digital sculpt this week at Wizard World Des Moines.

Most of you have probably guessed as to who it was, but for those who did not here is Molie! Fresh from the pages of the comic book!



He presented a number of challenges since our concept art is usually done with at least a side profile option to give us a sense of depth. Molie being from the comic meant we had basically just a head on reference.

His name has also changed, in the original books he is an obvious homage to Joey Styles (as well as other classic commentators like Jim Ross, Gorilla Monsoon and Gordon Solie) but just to be on the safe side legally we felt that a slight name change would be the most appropriate.

And speaking of the comics, Lee is warming up to finish up our next issue! If schedules keep as they are we plan to release this first at Designercon in November.


And one last note, Goliath is now sold out, thanks to all those who picked him up at Wizard World!

RIP Dusty Rhodes

Most of you know by now how diehard of a wrestling fan I am, so it is with great sadness that we lost another legend today. Dusty Rhodes passed away earlier today at the age of 69.

Anyone who ever watched him knows his charismatic nature and his ability to turn out one hell of a promo at any given moment. Watching him is like a wrestling clinic

One of the defining promos/interviews of the modern era is known amongst wrestling fans as hard times

You will be missed American Dream!

Come visit with Iowan native Marty “THEGODBEAST” Hansen as he discusses over 20 years of working in the independent toy world.

Another sneak peak and a Series 2 Review!

This figure has now been sent to print, we hope to have it on display at Wizard World Des Moines but it all depends if it makes it in time!


If it does not arrive I will have pics on my phone so anyone can come up and ask to see it

We have 2 more figures we will be teasing over the next two months as well 🙂


Long time MWOTR support Jerry took a look at our C2E2 Series 2

Some new figures in the works?

I have told you guys many times the wheels around here are always turning, with the next colorway of Series 2 coming at the end of June/beginning of July we are already looking ahead to Series 3

I posted a tease on Instagram this week, Simon is still refining the sculpt but there is a possibility we might have a prototype print at the upcoming Wizard World in Des Moines the 2nd weekend of June!


The only hint I will give is that he is in the comic books, but that could be several characters. I know once he is done Lee Burbridge might have an OH MY GOD moment 😉

I am also working on some tighter social media integration. With Instagram its easy to get those posts added to Facebook, Twitter and Flickr without doing anything but not so easy to migrate them to WordPress…hoping in the next few weeks to change that.

Goliath running low and other stock updates

Its been crazy around here since C2E2, this picture represents all that is left of the Metallic Black C2E2 Goliath


There are maybe 5 copies of the Trade Paperback remaining. Series 2 three packs have sold about 2/3 of the way and are on keeping pace with Series 1 Metallic Black sales (which is a good thing).

We intend to have our next colorway of Goliath possibly around Mid July or Early August.

And as always we are working up what to do next, we have about 4 different production options we are looking at. If left up to MWOTR fans it would be all 4 but that just won’t happen 😉

We may expand the brand again and go with an entirely new size/type of figure, we might revisit Evolution with a long desired Giant, or we might add some more minifigures to flesh out your play areas with commentary , referees and of course more wrestlers 🙂

Our con tour continues into our backyard of Des Moines next month, so if you are anywhere near the heart of Iowa then stop by and say Hi!!

The response to our Series 2 has been phenomenal,  we have a small bag of Goliath bundles left and are already working out what our next colorway will be (aiming for a July release).

We have about 3 copies of Volume 4 left, the demand for this issue has been much higher then we have seen for any other issue. We will be talking to the printers in the morning.

And speaking of Volume 4, our good friend Chris did us the honor of coloring the awesome cover by JB Roe over the weekend.

Also people have been asking when C2E2 items will be available if they can’t make it to the Con. We will only be there Friday and Saturday so any remaining stock will go up for sale Saturday night and ship between Monday and Tuesday of next week.
