The new series, which makes number 8 according to the “standard” listing is also known as the red series, because the blisterpacks had a frame in this colour. There were 6 figures released together in such blisterpacks, I will present today 3 and 3 more next time.
Bret Hitman Hart #2 (Bret Hart): After appearing for the first time in series 4, it was time to re-release this character (one of the most popular at the time) in his new outfit. Popular figures should always be available so children can always jump on collecting starting by it’s favorite wrestler. The new version does not add much to the first one, since it has very similar colours (the characteristic ones for Bret Hart) and the cast is the same, so, same action feature, same articulation points.
Mr Perfect #2 (Curt Hennig): Again, we have a re-usage of an old cast, The first version of Mr. Perfect was released in wave 3. The figure is exactly the same, except that it has blue colour instead of yellow. Curt Hennig had changed the colour of his output in between, so this update was more or less justified.
Lex Luger (Lawrence Wendell Pfohl): Lex Luger is on of the new figures made for this series, and at this time of the toyline is something the fan would appretiate. Many people who already bought Bret Hart or Mr. Perfect the first time they were available won’t buy them a second time, so it was important to keep on releasing new figures with new casts (but unfortunately no new action features). I don’t have any memories of this wrestler, because at this time, there was no tv show being aired in Spain.
