You can listen to the full episode below, which has DDP and Jake Roberts weighed in on various “Mt. Rushmores” of wrestling:

– Masked Republic and Boss Fight Studio have announced the release of the first wave of their Legends of Lucha Libre Fanaticos action figures. The first wave includes The Lucha Brothers, Taya Valkyrie, and mid-1990s Juventud Guerrera. You can see the full announcement below:

Masked Republic and Boss Fight Studio have released the first wave of the Legends of Lucha Libre brand’s Fanaticos line of action figures. Priced to be more fan pocketbook friendly than the best-in-class articulation and decoration of the Collector’s Series figures, there has never been a more articulated or highly detailed lucha libre figure on the market at the Fanaticos price point of a $22 SRP. With 28 points of articulation (versus a WWE Mattel Basic with 21 points), these figures will be must-haves for both casual fans and serious collectors alike.

Wave 1 features The Lucha Brothers® – Penta Zero M™ and Rey Fenix™ in a signature t-shirt, Taya Valkyrie™ (arguably the greatest female wrestling action figure of all time given it’s likeness, details and articulation), and Juventud Guerrera in his mid-1990s Lucha Libre AAA, ECW and early WCW look.

Said of the Taya Valkyrie figure in particular:

“This is definitely better than I expected! No disrespect at all…I definitely didn’t expect this much attention to detail and what we got here is pretty frickin awesome…I’m blown away!…It’s pretty mind boggling how much attention to detail they put with the sculpting, the molding and so on.”
