Hulk 'Still' Rules Figures

I bought myself a box-set of Hulk Hogan wrestling figures for the Christmas of 2002.

There were three of these toys in a pack and each one represented Hulk Hogan at certain ages in his career.

The earliest one was from his run in the eighties, the second featured his tenure in WCW when he was leader of the New World Order and the final figure represented his 2002 return to WWE wearing the 'Hulk Still Rules' t-shirt.

Just like with all of the other wrestling toys I bought around that time, I kept them in their boxes.

I was in my twenties, it would have looked silly a growing man playing WrestleMania on the kitchen table!

The reason why I am mentioning these toys is because I have been looking to see how much they are worth nowadays.

I bought them for less than ten pounds in a pre-Christmas sale at Argos. Right now, they are available from online wrestling figure specialists priced at £75.

I'm sort of amazed at how much they have risen in price. I wouldn't sell them but this set is certainly on its way to becoming a major collectors item.
