#546 HASBRO’S WWF – RICK “THE MODEL” MARTEL, SID JUSTICE, VIRGIL, SKINNER and WARLORD (1993)

In this entry I´ll show the last 5 figures of this series:

Rick the Model Martel
Rick Martel was another unsympathetic character: snobbish, elitist, posh and even corny. He had his own perfume called "Arrogance", that he used against his opponents. The figure is quite boring, since its is exactly the same cast used for Macho Man #1, just with a new head.



Sid Justice (Sidney Raymond Eudy)
Sid Justice was the good guy and in my opinion a bit similar to Mr. Perfect. He was the character to fight cheaters and fighters who worked dirty (and there were a few of this). The figure has a nice action, but looks very much like other figures, since the figure is only dressed with a blue trunks and boots.



Virgil (Michael "Mike" Jones)
This figure is a very nice one, looks quite different to all the others. A nice figure to have, despite its action arm being too short, and his chest too prone. The action move rather ineffective. The character was a nice sidekick to Million Dollar Man and his team Money Inc.



Skinner (Steve Keirn)
The crocodile hunter from Florida Everglades had a great figure: its outfit and its "rare" action move makes it quite a singular figure, doesn´t look like any other in the whole collection. The wrestler however wasn´t very popular, because of his bad manners and customs. He used to chew tobacco and spit it on a bucket or over their opponents face.



Warlord (Terry Scott Szopinski)
I remember just one or two fights with Warlord, but it was so impressive, I have not forgotten his entrance to the ring with a metallic staff, and that silver pad on his face. It was really frightening. The figure has an impressive armspan and huge hands, looks slightly bigger than the rest of the figures. Maybe because of this, the fingers of the figure might break, in a problem which is common to all figures performing this mode.
