Custom Hasbro Wrestling Figures based off of Hulk Hogan's Movie Roles!

If we were ever to pick an actor here to be the "Patron Saint of Shit Movie Fest", it's safe to say that Legendary Wrestler Hulk Hogan would definitely in the running for that Halo! 
Hogan really excelled in small roles and cameo appearance in movies such as "Rocky 3", "Gremlins 2: The New Batch", and "Spy Hard"; but when he was the main star the results were a mixed bag to say the least! 

No doubt Hogan would have whooped some Gremlin Ass!

I  myself happen to love Epic Cheesefest that are "No Holds Barred" and "Suburban Commando", but the rest of Hogan's Filmography is almost unwatchable in my opinion. Regardless of that opinion, I can't help but be in awe of toy customizer Tommy's Customs and his "Hulk Hogan Movie Project"! Late last year Tommy started making a figure for every appearance of Hogan's Movie Work! The figures as you will see below are the same mold of the famed Hasbro line of WWF Toys from the early 90s (See my Collection), which is perfect cause they were the toys that where around when Hogan was making these Cinema Treasures!
Hogan as "Thunderlips" in Rocky 3 (1982)

Hogan as "Rip" in "No Holds Barred" (1989)

Hogan as "Shep Ramsey" in "Suburban Commando" (1991)

Hogan as "Sean Armstrong" in "Mr. Nanny" (1993)

Hogan as "Santa" in "Santa With Muscles" (1996)

Hogan as "R.J. Spencer" in "Thunder in Paradise" (1994)

Hogan as "Dragon Dave" in "3 Ninjas: High Noon at Mega Mountain" (1998)

Hogan as "Ray Chase" in "The Secret Agent Club" (1996)

Hogan as "Zeus" in "Little Hercules in 3-D" (2009)

And lastly here is a Hogan toy in his WCW pre NWO Glory!
