Minifigure Review: Million Dollar Man, Sgt. Slaughter, & "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan from M.U.S.C.L.E.: WWE by Super7

 "Let's get ready some minifigures!!!" On Tuesday I reviewed one of the four sets from Super7's classic WWF themed M.U.S.C.L.E. figures (of course, they're legally still labeled WWE) and today I'm checking out another one. This set includes three more WWE Superstars: The Million Dollar Man Ted DiBiase, wrestling star and G.I. Joe team member Sgt. Slaughter, and "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan, the winner of the first ever Royal Rumble. While I'm disappointed that Super7 has gone the blind boxed Keshi Surprise route for the new She-Ra minis, I'm happy to say that the WWE M.U.S.C.L.E. figures are some of the best that Super7 has released. Let's check out this classic trio after the break...

 The Facts:

Height: 1 3/4ths to 1 7/8ths inches

Includes: 3 figures

Non-Scalper Price: $6 dollars
 Million Dollar Man

* First up is the Million Dollar Man. Rather than put him in his wrestling trunks, the Million Dollar Man is decked out in a designer suit with the Million Dollar Championship over his right shoulder and a wad of cash in his left hand. He also has a great smug look on his face, too. man, what a great villain, right?
 Sgt. Slaughter

   * Man, if you asked me for years who my favorite wrestler was it would have been Sgt. Slaughter. Yeah, he was a wrestler and a real life Marine drill sergeant, but the fact that he was a real life G.I. Joe is by far his claim to fame in my eyes. I once was out on a toy run and ran into a K-Mart that had held a Sgt. Slaughter meet an greet one hour prior to my arrival. I had no idea it was happening and I still hate that I missed it. I also almost bought an autographed pic of Sgt. Slaughter but it was made out to someone whose name wasn't even remotely close to mine.

 "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan

 "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan is the wrestler in this set I'm least familiar with. Just for a second, I thought he was Dusty Rhodes although I don't remember Dusty carrying around a 2x4. That's Jim Duggan's thing. He's a cool looking figure although I don't think he's the most recognizable of the trio.

   This is another solid set and the presence of the Million Dollar Man and Sgt. Slaughter makes me like this set just a but more than the first one I reviewed, although they're still both Great sets. The sculpts are good, the M.U.S.C.L.E feel is definitely here, and the price just can't be beat. Thus far, of the two sets I've reviewed, Sgt. Slaughter is easily my favorite figure released. Can he be beaten? We'll see, as the last two sets have some crazy big names in them.

These are the first action figures of "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan and the Million Dollar Man I've reviewed.

For fans of Sgt. Slaughter I've also reviewed Mattel's WWE Elite Collection Hall of Fame Sargent Slaughter (and yes, that's really how the package spelled it).
