A new wrestling action figure line is on the way from the team that brought you the AWA Remco wrestling line of the 1980s.
Power Town will launch as a Kickstarter with a first series of wrestlers including Kerry Von Erich, Ted DiBiase, Stan Hansen, Lou Thesz, Verne Gagne, and Magnum TA, according to Slam Wrestling.
The men behind the wrestling line are Steve Rosenthal and Greg Gagne, who put together the AWA wrestling line with Remco. According to Slam’s reporting, Rosenthal and Gagne are promising 150 wrestlers in their line, including “Cowboy” Bobby Duncum, Duane Duncum, and Bobby Duncum Jr., as well as Jacques Rougeau and the Rougeau family (Eddy Auger, Johnny, Jacques Sr., Raymond, Armand, Jean-Jacques, Cédric and Emile).
Renders of the figures were revealed but key details of the line were still unknown, including whether the action figures will be in-scale with Mattel and Jazwares figures. Eyeballing the renders, it looks like the figure bodies were largely reused, so it’s possible they will be in the same scale as the Remco figures of the past. Of course, these are just renders so it’s hard to know what the final product will look like.
Details of the Kickstarter weren’t shared, but if it’s contingent upon the Kickstarter succeeding, there are no guarantees this line ever makes it into production.
Here’s a look at the renders of the first six figures.
