Modern Wrestling Figures: What ones should I look for?

Posted in Custom Workstation

Hey everyone,

Until I started frequenting Figurerealm, I didn't realize the potential for Wrestling Figures (TNI? And other brands) to use as a base-figure.

Good articulation, and most seem to occupy that interesting scale-range between DCU/ML figures and McFarlane/NECA-scale 7"-8" figures.

I'd like to try making this style of Terminator figure:

Essentially, big, bulky guy with a jacket - with most of the joint areas cast in Black plastic (to prevent paint rub).


Does anyone have recommendations for a good wrestling figure that could be modified as such? How about others that present good base-figure opportunities for soldiers, or (potentially) OTHER terminator models?

I'd love to start creating my own (non-movie) terminator figures using endoskeleton fodder and wrestling figures.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!

Thanks for that - I could use Aves Sculpt to continue the shots into actual pants.

After a google image search for wwe figures - I noticed a lot of female wrestling figures too. For some reason though, their head sculpts/body design makes them all look like either drag queens or XXX stars. Strange.

check out chyna cammo carnage, but they got her body right, lol

for the body use a wwe deluxe aggression 15 matt striker and for the head, jacket and guns use a terminator 3 figure from the mcfarlane series.

Most likely you'll have to buy like 2 or 3 figures and use parts from all of them to get what you want.

deluxe wwe figures, are great, John Cena can look like terminator, but he got those shorts that aren't much terminator style, other have naked legs, so not much better, lol, try to find some deluxe figures, then got good articulations, and the materials feels strong
