WWF Hulk Hogan Hillbilly Jim Tag Team LJN figure figures pack

This is a set of Hulk Hogan and Hillbilly Jim figures that are supposed to be a tag team (?) that come with the Tag Team Championship belts (?!).

I’m pretty sure Hulk Hogan and Hillbilly Jim never tagged together, so they were never the Tag Team Champions (thank goodness!).

But the real mystery here is… Why doesn’t this come with a soiled mattress and mini figure of Jim’s Hound Dog for him to train with?

What a ripoff!

At least it comes with an awesome vintage Toys ‘R Us price sticker.

    The most prominent time they teamed was at The 1988 Survivor Series elimination tag match in the main event. When Hillbilly Jim was first introduced to the Fed he was presented as being mentored by The Hulkster, brother, the rare time that one didn’t turn on the champ. So in the slimmest of possibilities them being paired together wasn’t completely inconceivable. Sadly no tag title run would be in the cards but we’ll always have Richfield.

    Hillbilly debuted as Hogan’s pal. They teamed together several times. Who loet you write on a wrestling site?

    Survivor Series 88, Big Cheese, in a traditional SS match.

    They were the hulkamanian tag champions remember back in the AWAWWFWCWNWA ?

    In the opening match of the Hulkamania 2 Coliseum Video Hulk and Hillbilly teamed against Bundy, Studd and I believe Bobby Heenan at an MSG show.
