It was great being a kid in the 1980s; being a wrestling fan back then was even better. But throughout most of the decade, WWF enthusiasts only had a few options when it came to collecting action figures. In fact, we really only had two: LJN's Wrestling Superstars, and their smaller (and less popular) counterparts, the thumb wrestlers. These guys were constructed out of solid rubber and basically had zero articulation. Sound like fun, eh? At the time these figures were all the rage due to the WWF's aggressive advertising campaign. And don't get me wrong, some of those commercials were classic: "I'll bring MY guys, you have YOURS!" "They're so real, can YOU tell the difference?" Yep, they'd get you pretty pumped up, and seeing Roddy Rowdy Piper promoting the figures on late-night television was equally exciting. But in retrospect, the toys were pretty crappy. The main issue was their lack of durability. It was only a matter of time before the deterioration set in, and soon enough your wrestlers were grappling with each other sans pants as the paint began to peel away from their trunks, exposing the flesh-toned color bases of the figures. Dogs were also quite fond of them. After a few months of play, it wasn't uncommon to see LJN's big ol' rubber wrestlers lying neglected on the lawn, half naked and half chewed up. In 1989 Acclaim purchased LJN, shutting down its toy division to focus exclusively on video games. After five years of production, the Wrestling Superstars were canceled. But we needed something different anyway. We needed a new generation of toys to represent a new era in the World Wrestling Federation. And we would soon get it. In 1990, one company introduced what would perhaps become the most collectible wrestling figure line of all time: Hasbro's "Official" WWF Superstars.
Here are at the Final Three, and what do you know, it’s an entire Marvel trio of teams. DC may rule the modern list, but Marvel triumphed over the Team list in serious ass kicking action. With 7 teams of the Top 15 being DC, and the final three being all Marvel. Well done, well done indeed.
The last two before the Final 3, who made it? Who didn't? Find out here and watch people flip the frig out!!
The last bunch before the Top 5, and one of the teams I so didn't expect to make it this far.
Welcome to the Top 10 everyone of your Top Teams List, are you ask giddy as I am? Well, probably more so cuz I known the Top 10 for like a month now, so nyah nyah. Gloating aside, this is Top 10 I am pretty happy with, mind you I would change some of the order around and take a team or two out, most likely the team in 8th place and replace it with the JLI, but that’s just me. So, who made the Top 10? Who made the Top 5? Who made the Top 3? It all begins here....
The last group of One Pointers...

Welcome to the One Point Club aka The OPC for those who are familiar with this, and for those who are not, welcome as well. What is the OPC you ask? Well, it’s a special club reserved for people who received only 1 point in all these 200+ lists I received. That’s right, they only received one vote in a last place slot on a list. It’s a fun little group I started back on the Avengers Top List and from then on the ranks have grown big time. Who will be in the group this time around? Well, some big names and some WTFs. But before I do this, I always wanna apologize if one of your entries from your list did not appear on the list. It’s not out of malice or what not, it was most likely a simple cut and pasting error and I deeply deeply deeply apologize for it. I try my hardest to get everyone’s entry in or quotes but sometimes mistakes happen and I am sorry. Seriously, I am. So, now that I killed the buzz lets get back to the One Point Club, shall we??
The last two before the Top 10. Do you think they deserve to be in the Top 10?
Three more for ya!

Very few wrestling figure series have made the same kind of impact on the market as the Jakks Classic WWE Superstars line. Known for their impressive packaging, painstaking level of detail, and adherence to historical accuracy, these toys have become highly collectible. But can "Real Scan" technology and fancy accessories truly capture the essence of larger-than-life entertainers like the Natural Disasters?
