Every Monday, regardless of what I’ve got going on, I eventually find myself walking into the one and only Toy’s R Us that the city I live in holds. Making my way to the south side of the store, I always get excited in hopes of finding the newest release of UFC figures from Jakks Pacific or Round 5. Today was a good day for me, because as I walked into the isle filled from left to right of UFC and WWE figures, I spotted all of the latest figures from Jakks Pacific, including the PRIDE version of Quinton "Rampage" Jackson. I quickly scooped it up, and held onto it like some retarded freak who was going to have to fight off some other nerdy MMA fan who also routinely visited the store for the same reason. Sadly, no other fans showed up, and I was unable to simultaneously hold the Rampage figure and throw a flying scissor heel hook in the middle of the aisle and stake claim that this was MY FUCKING TOY!
I bought Rampage for the low price $10.54, and now he sits on my computer desk in my spare bedroom, next to fellow Jakks Pacific figures Shogun Rua, Nate Marquardt, and BJ Penn. Across the room is a display of Round 5 figures – Wanderlei Silva, Chuck Liddell, Shogun, Lyoto Machida, and Matt Serra. My collection is getting bigger and bigger as the weeks go by. Remember Andy’s apartment in the 40 Year Old Virgin? Yeah, that’s going to be what my place looks like someday! Do I need help?
The full lineup of the series five figures, which sell for $9.99, include:
- PRIDE era Quinton "Rampage Jackson"
- Lyoto Machida w/ UFC belt
- Matt Hamill
- Stephan Bonnar
- Kenny Florian
- Matt Serra
- UFC legend Dan Severn (with sweat-stained shirt)
You can pick them up from Toy’s R Us, K-Mart, Target, and Wal-Mart (Canada only I think), as well as online at Ringside Collectibles.
