Mr. T’s card art pays homage to Wrestlemania 1 where he is featured on the front of the VHS (remember those days!) slip cover! The back of the card features his most famous catch phrases, the most widely known being “I pity the fool” and if you remember his tagline from the Masters of the WWE Universe line, he was the Heroic Pitier of Fools!
The Macho Man’s card art pays homage to Randy Savage as he is clad in his 1988 robe that he wore on Saturday Night’s Main Event! He is most famous for this slogan “Dig it,” which he would often use as a filler word during his promos!
The rear of the cardbacks feature black and white sketches of each character with their signature quotes. My favorite is” First Name: ‘Mr’, Last Name: ‘T’ “! Cracks me up!! You can also see the rest of Series 4 who includes Typhoon and The Rock.
ROUND 1 Winner:
I have to give this round to Mr.T for sporting some incredible artwork front and back, having that awesome signature saying of ” First Name “Mr” , Last Name ‘T’ “, and for just looking amazing in his blister bubble sporting all those gold chains, camo gear and knee highs! WINNER ROUND ONE MR. T!
Ding Ding….. Let’s head on over to Round 2!
ROUND 2: The Figures
So Mr. T takes the first round in overall packaging. But let’s take a closer look at each of the figures and their accessories to see who will win ROUND 2!
Mr. T comes loaded with clothing and accessories. He comes with several removable accessories, which the WWE Superstars line is famous for. His belt, cuffs, and gold chains come off and you can basically strip him down to his yellow wrestling trunks and you can’t forget the knee-high socks! He also comes with two-piece camo jumpsuit that pays homage to his Clubber Lang character in Rocky 3.
The cuffs, gold chains, and knuckle-wear give him so many display options! Pose him with and without his belt for a myriad of Mr. T looks!
Here you can see what the basic Mr. T Figure looks all decked out in his camo jumpsuit and mega bling.
Here you can see what the basic Mr. T Figure looks like without his camo jumpsuit and bling.
“I pity the Fool” is what you think of when you look at this Mr.T head sculpt! The incredible likeness to the tough man himself is fantastic! With a cool snarl on his lips, and a stern brow, you don’t want to mess with him! He is of course complete with his signature beard and mohawk.
Chest and Back
Mr.T’s chest uses the standard muscular buck of all the WWE Superstars. He is dressed in his Camo jumpsuit, with red sleeves. This top is a separate shirt piece from his pants, and velcro’s in the back. He is complete with his ginormous amount of gold chains hanging off his neck, so the bling completes the look.
Arms, Waist , Legs
Arms: His camo jumpsuit has red sleeves on them. Mr.T’s arms are of the standard wrestling buck and he has white cuffs painted on his wrists. But he wouldn’t be Mr. T with out some added bling, so he comes with a removeable large gold cuff for his right wrist. And another removeable smaller gold textured bracelet for his left wrist.
Waist: Mr. T includes a red wrestling belt with a large gold “T” in the front as a belt buckle.
Legs: Mr. T is wearing camo pants as part of his wrestling jumpsuit. Underneath his pants, you can strip him down to his yellow wrestling trunks. He is also rockin’ some cool 80’s knee-high socks and black shoes.
Hands: Mr. T comes with 2 sets of alternate hands. He has 2 left and right pointing hands, cause you know, he has to tell people what’s up with authority! He also includes his signature gold knuckle-wear on two hands to complete the classic Mr. T look!
Bling: Mr. T is known for sporting some serious bling, and he would not be complete without some massive gold chains and cuffs. He comes wth a large right wrist cuff, and left wrist bracelet. Then of course a massive, sculpted set of gold chains to wear around his neck. He comes with several removable accessories, which the WWE Superstars line is famous for. His belt, cuffs, and gold chains come off and you can basically strip him down to his yellow wrestling trunks.
Jumpsuit: As we mentioned before, Mr. T includes a two piece camo jumpsuit. The top is camouflaged with red sleeves. The pants are all camouflaged. Both have velcro in the back to open up and help easily remove the gear for Mr.T to go all out in his yellow wrestling trunks.
Belt: Of course, this wouldn’t be a complete set with out inclusion of a cool wrestling belt. So Mr.T comes with a red belt made out of soft plastic. It has a large painted gold belt buckle with a ‘T” sculpted on it as well.
Mr. T History
Mr. T (born Laurence Tureaud; May 21, 1952) is an American actor known for his roles as B. A. Baracus in the 1980s television series The A-Team, boxer Clubber Lang in the 1982 film Rocky III, and for his appearances as a professional wrestler, most notably at the first two WrestleManias. Mr. T is known for his trademark African Mandinka warrior hairstyle, his gold jewelry, and his tough-guy image. In 2006 he starred in the reality show I Pity the Fool, shown on TV Land, the title of which comes from the catchphrase of his Clubber Lang character.
According to the WWE:
“Few men in history have bridged the gap between the world of professional wrestling and pop culture quite like Mr. T. Pitying fools from the South Side of Chicago all the way to Madison Square Garden, the man born Laurence Tureaud anchored the very first WrestleMania in 1985 and helped create some of the most iconic moments from Hulkamania’s early days. First gaining national attention after winning an NBC competition called “America’s Toughest Bouncer,” Mr. T — with a shawl of gold jewelry around his neck and an unmistakable Mohawk — was recruited by Sylvester Stallone to play the villainous Clubber Lang in “Rocky III.” As the film’s larger-than-life antagonist, he uttered one of the most famous lines in movie history: “I don’t hate Balboa, but I pity the fool.” Mr. T’s turn as Clubber Lang led to a breakout role as B.A. Baracus on the NBC action series “The A-Team.” It was there that T went from a star to a bona fide 1980s icon with his own Saturday morning cartoon and breakfast cereal. While starring on one of television’s biggest hits, the gold-covered brawler joined up with his “Rocky III” co-star Hulk Hogan in WWE in 1985.”https://www.wwe.com/superstars/mr-t

Macho Man Randy Savage History
Born Randall Mario Poffo, better known by his ring name “Macho Man” Randy Savage, was a professional wrestler who achieved prominence in the World Wrestling Federation (WWF) and later World Championship Wrestling (WCW). Savage is known to wrestling fans and non-fans alike for his distinctively deep, husky voice and his trademark loud, drawn-out cry of “Ohhhhhhhhhh yeahhhhhhhhhhhh!”, made even more popular by a series of Slim Jim ads. For much of his tenure in the WWF, he was managed by Miss Elizabeth, to whom he was married on December 30, 1984. TMZ reported that “Macho Man” Randy Savage died in a car accident in Florida 20 May 2011 morning. TMZ spoke to Savage’s brother, Lanny Poffo, who revealed that Savage had suffered a fatal heart attack whilst driving his car in Tampa, which caused him to lose control and crash into a tree.
According to the WWE:
Few Superstars were as dynamic as “Macho Man” Randy Savage. His style — perfectly punctuated by his entrance music, “Pomp and Circumstance” — was only outshined by his performances in the ring, which led him to two WWE Championships, four WCW World Championships and a 14-month reign as Intercontinental Champion. Born Randy Poffo, son of wrestling Legend Angelo Poffo, Macho Man almost chose Major League Baseball over World Wrestling Entertainment. Poffo was signed by the St. Louis Cardinals as a catcher after graduating high school. After years developing in the minor leagues, a collision at home plate caused an injury to his throwing arm, ending his baseball career.
Joining WWE in June 1985, Macho Man made such an impact that his services were in demand by the various managers in WWE at that time. But Savage introduced a young woman named Elizabeth to accompany him to the ring and manage him. With the First Lady of Wrestling as his manager, the Superstar’s first major achievement was reaching the finals of a one-night tournament, as part of the Wrestling Classic pay-per-view event in November 1985. The following February, after a lengthy rivalry with then-Intercontinental Champion Tito Santana, Macho Man defeated the WWE Hall of Famer to earn his first WWE title.
Savage became a WrestleMania staple early on, making his debut on The Grandest Stage of Them All at WrestleMania 2 where he defended the Intercontinental Championship against the intimidating and unpredictable George “The Animal” Steele. From there, he defended the title all the way until WrestleMania III when he fell short against Ricky Steamboat in what is considered by many to be one of the greatest matches of all time.
Savage went on to dub himself “Macho King” after defeating “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan for the King of the Ring title in 1989. Carrying a scepter and crown, he called on Sensational Sherri to replace Elizabeth as his manager. Savage targeted then-WWE Champion Ultimate Warrior with a series of attacks in response to being denied a title opportunity, which led to a Career-Ending Match at WrestleMania VII. When Savage was pinned, Sherri attacked him as he lay helpless. Fortunately, Elizabeth was in the audience and rushed to his aid, sparking arguably the most romantic moment the WWE Universe had ever witnessed. The sight of Miss Elizabeth and Macho Man embracing in the center of the ring after all those years was one of the fans would not soon forget.Randy Savage
