Here are the five rarest wrestling figures, which will make you a fortune.


#5 Ultimate Warrior Limited Edition Exclusives (Value $800-$2,000)

The Warrior has perhaps had the most exclusive of exclusive figures, with his Unmatched Fury figure in America facepaint limited to just 20 figures

As one of the most iconic and colorful superstars in WWE history, it makes sense that there was plenty of figures celebrating the former WWF and Intercontinental Champion.

The Warrior has perhaps had the most exclusive of exclusive figures, with his Unmatched Fury figure in America facepaint limited to just 20 figures.

However, his rarest (and most valuable) figure is his One Warrior Nation figure from Jakks Pacific, of which only 5 were made.

According to rumors, Warrior owned some himself before he passed, and sold one for $800 to a fan, and traded another to a different fan for an undisclosed piece of merch.

A separate report has said that these figures have sold for $2,000 at auction.

#4 Miss Elizabeth Wrestling Superstars Purple Skirt (LJN) (Value: $1800)

This figure of Elizabeth was one of several variants, which included a gold top, and a rumored leather skirt variant

The first lady of the World Wrestling Federation, Miss Elizabeth was a star of the late 80s and early 90s, aligning herself with champions such as the Macho Man, Randy Savage, and the Immortal Hulk Hogan.

This figure of Elizabeth was one of several variants, which included a gold top, and a rumored leather skirt variant.

However, this purple dress variant is by far the rarest and includes a free poster of the iconic manager.

Collectors have often said how they have struggled to find older figures of her, though a mint on card version of this figure recently sold for $1,800.

#3 Hart Foundation Wrestling Superstars Tag Team Box And Singles (LJN) (Value: $1200 - $2000)

the set comes with two Tag Team Championships, with an opened set of the figures selling in recent years for $500

Whilst both figures of Jim 'The Anvil' Neidhart and Bret 'Hitman' Hart were available individually, this unique 2-pack is definitely a collector's item.

Celebrating one of the most successful teams of all time, the set comes with two Tag Team Championships, with an opened set of the figures selling in recent years for $500.

However, to get your real money's worth, keep an eye out for sets of the Canadians in their box.

Recently, two mint on card sets of the team sold, with one of those selling for over $2,000.

#2 'Macho Man' Randy Savage Wrestling Superstars '89 (Black card) (Value: $4,500)

Complete with pink trunks, yellow boots and poster of the figure, this Randy Savage toy would be the perfect addition to any Machomaniac's collection

Macho Man Randy Savage is one of the most iconic stars of the Hulkamania Era, so it makes sense that he would be immortalised in the LJN series.

Complete with pink trunks, yellow boots and poster of the figure, this Randy Savage toy would be the perfect addition to any Machomaniac's collection.

According to WrestlingFigs.com, a mint on card version of the figure will set you back $4,500, with the poster by itself once making $180 on its own.

A figure (on heavily damaged backing card) did sell for over $2,000 recently but would've gone for a lot more, if in better condition.

#1 Kamala (Moon Belly) Hasbro series 7 (Value: $3,000 - $10,000)

One collector sold a figure in 2013, for $6,500, with other sellers saying they've seen the figure range from $3,000 to a whopping $10,000
One collector sold a figure in 2013, for $6,500, with other sellers saying they've seen the figure range from $3,000 to a whopping $10,000

A Kamala figure was released in 1993, as part of Hasbro's 7th series of figures. Interestingly, when the Kamala figure was released to the public, the figure featured a yellow star painted on his stomach, instead of his usual yellow moon.

Only 24 or so of the yellow moon Kamala figures exist and are now worth an absolute fortune. One collector sold a figure in 2013, for $6,500, with other sellers saying they've seen the figure range from $3,000 to a whopping $10,000.

Nobody knows why this version had so little made, with plenty of speculation. Some have claimed the yellow moon version was just a prototype, whilst others have claimed that it was deliberately made in short supply to be valuable. Whatever the reason, if you have this, you're sitting on a goldmine.

And yes, the real Kamala does have one.
