Without Andre the Giant, professional wrestling would not have become the mainstream success we know it as today. Sure, sports entertainment would still be a regional powerhouse, but it was the Eighth Wonder of the World who gave it the push it needed.
As he appeared in his legendary match at Wrestlemania 3, Andre is Super7’s latest Ultimates action figure. This is a follow-up to the toymaker’s earlier Yellow Trunks version of the pro-wrestling icon.
The Black Singlet version of Andre should be shipping out in Spring 2023. He can be pre-ordered right now for $55.00.
Other wrestlers might need flashy costumes or outlandish personas to attract attention, but when you’re the Eighth Wonder of the World, your mere presence is enough! This 8” highly articulated Andre the Giant ULTIMATES! figure features the wrestling legend in his iconic black singlet, and includes interchangeable heads & hands and a beer can accessory. To say that this ULTIMATES! figure would be a giant addition to your collection is an unavoidable pun, but it’s also a completely accurate statement.
The Giant comes with the following accessories:
- 3x Interchangeable heads
- Neutral head
- Intense eyes head
- Grimacing head
- 8x Interchangeable hands
- 2x Gripping hands
- 2x Chopping hands
- 2x Fist Hands
- 2x Open hands
- 1x Beer can
Just one can of beer? Tales are told that the Giant usually had 24+ beers after a match!
I’d like to see an everyday version of Andre, outside of the squared circle, dressed in his Sunday best, with a few crates of wine and maybe a few six-packs of beer.
I only ever got to meet Andre one time. Unfortunately, it was not long before he passed away. Although you could tell he was in pain and unable to walk, the Giant was nonetheless kind to fans and made what time he could for those who saw him.
