WCW Mean Gene Oklerund Kevin Nash Bill Goldberg figures Ring Announcer Series

Kevin Nash, Bill Goldberg…. and Mean Gene Okerlund?


Were kids really clamoring for a figure of Gene?

I guess if you needed a guy for the NWO to attack…

    Meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeean by god you are now an action figure for WCW Gene.

  2. #OPC says:

    Really Goldberg and Nash are out of place, Mean Gene is the only announcer here.

  3. John C says:

    So if the package says Ring Announcer Series shouldn’t it be The Brain and Tony Schiavone also with Mean Gene? Or Mongo with Pepe? As long as it wasn’t Mark Madden because there’s a chance the world supply of plastic would have been in jeopardy if more than three figures were made.

    I’ve always felt this was the best method for selling figure is no kid wanted. Make it two or three pack with a figure everyone would want (Austin, Rock, Cena, etc) and throw in one nobody would want.

    Speaking of announcers, look at the Gif of the week this week and you’ll see Andre the Giant throttling a Bob Ueker (sp!) Don’t know how that was wrestlecrap but yeah… OR Things that make you go hmmmm

  6. Rob says:

    I like the misuse of quotes. It should be “Mean” Gene Okerlund. “Mean Gene” is not a nickname.

  7. GeorgeF says:

    I had the old rubber WWF figure of Mean Gene. I used to use him as a manager.

  8. Doc 902714 says:

    Goldberg doesn’t belong cause Mean Gene and Nash are both pervs.

  9. Drew says:

    Just wondering … was the 6″ Gene Okerlund confirmed with Mrs. Okerlund pre-production?

  10. Jimbolian says:

    I wonder if some kid touched the Mean Gene figure, it says aloud “DON’T YOU TOUCH ME I GOT A LEGION OF LAWYERS!” like he did when nWo formed at Bash at the Beach ’96.

  11. Barry says:

    I had the Mean Gene figure, but I’m sure mine came with Kevin Nash and Sting.

  12. Rich says:

    That awkward moment when the Okerlund figure looks like a better scan than Nash and Goldberg.

  13. Marc says:

    Anyone noticed Nash’s eyes? Sure creepy looking… I remember having the Toy Biz figures of the 90’s most of single packs came with actions like Kevin Nash with Powerbomb action, and a unbendable standing cheap plastic referee to “powerbomb” by squeezing the legs to perform the action… They were crap, and broke easily… very easily, and yes, it did look kind of stupid that the Nash Figure would consistently be in this odd pose with his hands out and fingertips clenched… looks more like he was about to unleash a Powerhug.
