It's time for us to spotlight the Wild World of Wrestling!  To help us shout out the correct information; we have the Ring-Master man himself: Mr Criss Fresh!  After a little bit of local toy aisle chats, we get to the crux of how wrestling became the juggernaut that it is known to be.  Through the eyes of Fresh, how did Wrestling hit his radar as a kid.  A captivating story of Fresh following Wrestlemania through TV & Tape trading's, plus all the schoolyard banter - then the natural progression onto toys.  Fresh Smacks Down the facts & memories of indestructible LJN figures & their off-shoot bendy counterparts too.  The discovery of WWF Hasbro figures & their great sculpts!  The realisation that some of these 'Green-back' figures did not get a wider world release - but are quite plentiful in Australia!  Galoob & ToyBiz toylines featuring WCW characters & Jakks Pacific covering WWF.  Poppy covering the Japanese Wresting series & Remco spotlighting the AWA Federation.  Original San Fransico Toy Makers covering the WCW & ECW.  Then that new age era...  The 'PG' era of Wrestling.  Quickly followed by an Inverted Atomic Drop.... Mattel enters the Ring & takes home the Championship Belt in the Toy Aisles; & not forgetting that CharaPro winning over in the East, under their New Japan Wrestling toyline.  All this & more!  A genuinely energetic chat about not only about one man's History with Wrestling Toys, but the passion to the Ring & it's very Famous Inhabitants.  This could just be; the Best their is, the Best there was & the Best there ever will be!!!Support the show: http://patreon.com/toypowerpodcastSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

It's news day and we bring the weird and wonderful to you! But first we hear about Scot's guest appearance on DVG and – Weird is right word! McFarlane brings the heat this time while we get stuck on the Mickey Mouse aspect of GI Joe. Then there's MOTU controversy as Ramen toys get in on the action while we debate Mattel's latest entry to the Origins line. But on the subject of weird, I think we have a new winner for a What-The Crossover!  And just when you thought the average wait time for figures couldn't get anymore crazy – here comes a new challenger! Finish it up with some latest scores and sneak peak at a potential future score by the devious Scot. Support the show: http://patreon.com/toypowerpodcastSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
