Brian Myers Explains Why Old WCW Figures Used To Vibrate

Back in the 90s, WCW partnered with OSFTM to release a series of figures that vibrated.

That's right, owners could press a button on the figure and your favorite WCW wrestler would begin vibrating in your hand. No one understood then, no one really understands it now, but Brian Myers and Matt Cardona did offer more insight as to why they would vibrate.

Tony Khan appeared on the Major Wrestling Figure Podcast and the subject of the vibrating WCW toys was brought up. When Khan asked if they knew what the deal was with the vibration, Myers said, "It was one series, it didn't last long, go figure. There was an episode of Toys That Made Us that kind of covered it, you've got the guy that was behind making those and he knew Big Show and Big Show told us recently that [the toy guy] told him the idea was [the figures] were so mad, they were shaking with anger to fight each other!"

There you go. While many collectors will keep their figures in the box, the vibrating WCW were meant to be released as they were so angry, they had to fight each other.
