|WWF LJN Stretch Wrestlers

When I was much, much younger my brother and I had a Stretch Armstrong doll (yes, I'm comfortable saying doll) as well as his nemesis the Stretch Monster. They were lots of fun, but at one point, they each busted open and the gelled corn syrup inside oozed out, rendering the toy useless.
Eventually I stopped playing with my toys and packed them away in my closet. I'm a pack rat, so when I went to pull out my Piper (not a sexual thing) he had busted open and was losing his innards. It was more of a dust/sand product and not the syrupy stuff inside Stretch Armstrong.
I wish the Stretch Wrestlers would have stood the test of time, as I like incorporating old toys in my videos and blogs. They were fun while they lasted, but unfortunately my figures didn't last very long.
