IMPACT Wrestling is waving goodbye along with 2023 and the future in 2024 and beyond is very much about TNA as the company announces a deal to produce action figures.

The TNA brand is returning in 2024 after several years away amid much excitement in the company. Will Ospreay will be part of a huge TNA show before he begins his new life in AEW and he will be joined on that show by NJPW icon Kazuchika Okada.

TNA Bringing Back Action Figures

Now the company has issued a press release touting the return of action figures after signing a new deal with PowerTown Wrestling. The release notes that the first series of new action figures will be available to order from March 2024. The full press release reads:

TNA Wrestling is returning to the action figure market through a long-term contract with PowerTown Wrestling to produce collectible TNA Action Figures & Accessories, it was jointly announced today.

Pre-sale orders for Series One will begin in March 2024 and the figures will be shipped in August 2024. Series Two of the TNA Wrestling Action Figures from PowerTown will be shipped in December 2024. More information on who will be included in each series will be released in the coming weeks.

“We are happy to get into the ring with TNA Wrestling, as we bring two recognizable brands in the wrestling industry together for the first time,” says Steve Rosenthal, co-founder and managing partner of Relativity Worldwide, the parent company of PowerTown. “This partnership will allow us to leverage our expertise in developing high quality action figures and accessories to bring to market a line of products that will be equally exciting for wrestling fans worldwide.”

In less than two years, PowerTown has become a leader in developing and marketing original collectible wrestling action figures legends of the sport from the past six decades. The brand launched last year with its Series 1 Ultra collection, featuring six iconic pro wrestling personalities: Verne Gagne, Lou Thesz, Stan Hansen, Bruiser Brody, Magnum TA, and Kerry Von Erich. Each seven-inch scale ‘Ultra’ figure is highlighted with personalized accessories and ring-wear, along with championship belts. PowerTown Wrestling recently announced its new Ultra Series 2 line-up.

“TNA fans have been asking when the next TNA Action Figures will be released. Finally, we have the answer: 2024 – and we’re very confident that fans worldwide will be thrilled with these new TNA Action Figures from PowerTown Wrestling. PowerTown delivers high-quality collectibles and we are very excited to work with the entire team there,” said TNA Wrestling President Scott D’Amore.

The TNA Wrestling Action Figures from PowerTown will be Ultra figures, like the popular Ultras Series 1 figures from PowerTown, which are soldout. The Ultra figures are 7-inch scale, sculpted for their real-life height in scale with other wrestlers. The figures have 30 modes of articulation; thus, the head rotates and nods, arms rotate and move forward and back, biceps rotate and much more. Other features of Ultra figures include moveable elbows, rotating wrists and torso, and bending ankles.

Rosenthal created the wrestling action figure craze of the 1980s while serving in a senior management role at Remco Toys as part of a licensing partnership with AWA All-Star Wrestling. He re-entered the business in 2022 through a partnership with Gagne and Magnum TA and has since launched a series of impressive action figures featuring legends of the sport’s past.

The first show to be held under the resurrected TNA banner will be Hard To Kill on January 13th. That show will see Moose challenge Alex Shelley for the TNA World Championship, Jordynne Grace take on Trinity for her Knockouts Title, and Chris Sabin put his X-Division Title on the line against Kushida and El Hijo del Vikingo in a three-way match.
