I’ve never been a big fan of WWF Wrestling, though I knew all the main wrestlers of the era that this 1987 advert is from. The various WWF lines from LJN were pretty cool; the Sling’em Fling’em Wrestling Ring, the Bendies Action Figures (that let you Twist’em, Turn’em and match your favorite holds) and the Thumb Wrestlers so you could Pin’em – just like the real thing. I’m quite surprised that my younger self didn’t want’em and get’em!
The real gem from this advert is the Hulkmania Workout Line which included everything you needed to get in shape including Hulk’s own 40 minute personal excercise fitness program! I would have wanted that as a child – I still do!
Advert from a 1987 magazine found here.
