Santa Wolf Returns to Beckon New Holiday Releases!

Wow, what a magical holiday season it is for our fans! So incredible in fact that Santa Wolf is making his triumphant return, this time with art courtesy of Wondrous Werner Mueck.

Every year our staff at Fed HQ plans ahead for our end-of-the-year releases and we always want it to be special. This year offers a major release in three of our most popular game lines.

First there’s the cornerstone of our company, Champions of the Galaxy. We are continuing our proud tradition of releasing fan-made characters with FTR: The Return.  You can’t beat wild characters like Mayham, King Tux, Moonlight, and in a continuing nod to our illustrious game history, Astarte (look him up!). I even got in on the party and created would-be conqueror Murtak the Merciless. It will be fun for all involved to add this enhancement talent to the GWF!

But there’s more! We continue to release new game expansions with our fantastic partner, Ring of Honor. Look for new playing cards for the likes of Jay White, Caprice Coleman, Kenny King, and more! Your ROH fed will be better than ever!

At this point I could say I’m saving the best for last, but our awesome COTG and ROH releases are too good for that, so I’ll simply say that I’m proud that we are bringing new life to our classic Legends game series with Legends Expansion Set 1! This continues our tradition of adding legendary wrestlers to this game line, this time with a focus on great tag teams. There’s the Rock N Roll Express, Sheepherders, Fantastics, and more! Your Legends fed will be alive with more thrilling action than ever!

The card art for all these sets spills off the cards courtesy again of Werner. Thanks as usual to our amazing staff of writers that works hard to make these cards as realistic and fun as ever.

After three decades plus Filsinger Games is still on the move and it’s all because of our amazing fans! Our goal is to give you game-playing thrills till the end of time. So far, so good.

Have a great dice-rolling, elbow-smashing holiday season! Until Santa Wolf crashes into Rudolph…

The Sheepherders Brawl Their Way into Legends

The final tag team that will be part of the 1st Legends expansion is Butch Miller and Luke Williams, the Sheepherders.  Although many younger fans know of this New Zealand duo for their fun loving ways…hardcore wrestling fans remember this tag team for the myriad of violent encounters they had in the 80’s.  One of the greatest brawling teams of its day, the team won tag team gold and liked to leave their opponents a bloody mess.  One of their most famous feuds was with the Fantastics in a complete clash of styles.  Legends fans are salivating at seeing this classic match-up come to life yet again!

The Sheephearders are part of Legends: Expansion Pack I along with the Rock ‘N’ Roll Express, Midnight Express, Fantastics, Miracle Violence Connection, and Heavenly Bodies.  This set is available for preorder now!  The 12-card set can be ordered HERE as well as the Special Edition manager 2 pack featuring Jim Cornette and Paul Ellering which is available HERE.  Both of these items are also part of the 2017 Holiday package, which also include Ring of Honor Top Prospects and FTR Set 2, which can be ordered HERE.  All games begin mailing on December 14th.

Legends Expansion Set 1 will be FANTASTIC!

 

The Legends tag team scene continues to keep getting better and it’s time to include two sharp dressed men!

That’s right the Fantastics, Tommy Rogers and Bobby Fulton, join the legends roster in the new expansion.  This southern duo was one of the most popular in wrestling in the mid-1980’s.  One of their biggest feuds ever was with the Midnight Express, which Legends fans are sure to be looking to recreate as soon as possible!

The Fantastics are part of Legends: Expansion Pack I along with the Rock ‘N’ Roll Express, Midnight Express, Miracle Violence Connection and Heavenly Bodies.  This set is available for preorder now!  The 12-card set can be ordered HERE as well as the Special Edition manager 2 -pack featuring Jim Cornette and Paul Ellering which is available HERE.  Both of these items are also part of the 2017 Holiday package, which also include Ring of Honor Top Prospects and FTR Set 2, which can be ordered HERE.  All games begin mailing on December 14th.

Terry Gordy Has Arrived. Get Ready for Some Violence!

Hot on the heels of the announcement of Dr. Death Steve Williams, we are happy to announce that his long time tag team partner Terry “Bam Bam” Gordy will also be joining the newest Legends expansion.  Gordy is well known for his tag team accomplishments, but also has a successful singles career, winning World titles along the way.  This big man was known for his athleticism and along side Dr. Death made a lethal combination.  The Miracle Violence Connection terrorized the Japanese tag team scene in the early 90’s and will look to to the same to your Legends tag team division!

The Miracle Violence Connection is part of Legends: Expansion Pack I along with the Rock ‘N’ Roll Express, Midnight Express and Heavenly Bodies.  This set is available for preorder now!  The 12-card set can be ordered HERE as well as the Special Edition manager 2 pack featuring Jim Cornette and Paul Ellering which is available HERE.  Both of these items are also part of the 2017 Holiday package, which also include Ring of Honor Top Prospects and FTR Set 2, which can be ordered HERE.  All games begin mailing on December 14th.

Doctor Death Steve Williams Comes to Legends

Steve Williams is known for his intensity and punishing wrestling style, which he will be bringing to the Legends game this holiday season. This All American from Oklahoma was always a top draw wherever he went, whether it be in the US or Japan.  Fans loved him and opponents feared him!  Dr. Death won World titles in both singles and tag team competitions and will look to do the same in your fed.  Watch out for the Oklahoma Stampede coming through!

Dr. Death Steve Williams is part of Legends: Expansion Pack I along with the Rock ‘N’ Roll Express, Midnight Express and Heavenly Bodies.  This set is available for preorder now!  The 12-card set can be ordered HERE as well as the Special Edition manager 2 pack featuring Jim Cornette and Paul Ellering which is available HERE.  Both of these items are also part of the 2017 Holiday package, which also include Ring of Honor Top Prospects and FTR Set 2, which can be ordered HERE.  All games begin mailing on December 14th.

Rock ‘N’ Roll Express Come to Legends Game this December!

Look out Midnight Express!  Here comes your biggest rivals!

That’s right, debuting in the Legends game this holiday season is one of the most popular tag teams in history, Ricky Morton and Robert Gibson, the Rock ‘N’ Roll Express!  The 80’s heart throbs tore up the wrestling scene in the southern US in the 80’s.  Their clashes with Jim Cornette and the Midnight Express are legendary, as are their matches with Cornette’s Heavenly Bodies in the early 90’s.  Now Legends fans can recreate both feuds in their feds!

Ricky Morton and Robert Gibson are part of Legends: Expansion Pack I which is available for preorder now!  The 12-card set can be ordered HERE as well as the Special Edition manager 2 pack featuring Jim Cornette and Paul Ellering which is available HERE.  Both of these items are also part of the 2017 Holiday package, which also include Ring of Honor Top Prospects and FTR Set 2, which can be ordered HERE.  All games begin mailing on December 14th.

Jim Cornette is Out to Stir Up Trouble in Legends!

With the recent announcements of the Midnight Express and the Heavenly Bodies, it’s only natural that the manager that formed both duos would also be represented in Legends with a new color card.  Perhaps one of the greatest and most certainly one of the most disruptive managers in wrestling history, Cornette and his trusty tennis racket were a constant thorn in the sides of many baby face tag teams.  Who will Cornette manage in your Legends fed?  The Midnight Express?  The Heavenly Bodies?  Or perhaps a super stable with both teams!  Its up to you promoter!

Jim Cornette will be part of a special edition manager two pack that will be released the same time as the new Legends 12-pack.  Thats 14 awesome new Legends to add to your collection this holiday season!  Keep an eye out this week for the other name in this must have set.  Preorder for this new 12 card Legends of Wrestling expansion starts on Black Friday November 24th and shipping starts December 12th along with the latest expansions from Ring of Honor and Champions of the Galaxy.

The Heavenly Bodies Add to the Growing Legends Tag Team Ranks

Adding to the recently announced Midnight Express is another tag team familiar to the southern wrestling scene, the Heavenly Bodies.  Stan Lane and Tom Prichard formed the infamous duo in the early 90’s and captured gold immediately.  Both men were renowned tag team wrestlers, with multiple partners over the years.  In fact, Stan Lane may be even more well known for his time as part of the Midnight Express.  Will Lane team more often with Prichard or Bobby Eaton in your fed?  Either way the tag team division in legends is heating up!

More Legends names will continue to be announced throughout this week and then each week until release.  Preorder for this new 12 card Legends of Wrestling expansion starts on Black Friday November 24th and shipping starts December 12th along with the latest expansions from Ring of Honor and Champions of the Galaxy.

Midnight Express Comes to Legends Color

Leading off the Legend of Wrestling color expansion set is one of the most nefarious tag teams in wrestling history, the Midnight Express.  Although there were many iterations of the Midnight Express, arguably the most popular tandem was “Loverboy” Dennis Condrey and “Beautiful” Bobby Eaton.  Now this legendary tag team can join your Legends promotion in full color to take on other great tag teams like the Road Warriors.

Keep any eye out over the coming weeks for more huge names in this must have Legends expansion set, which features 12 wrestler cards.  Preorder starts on Black Friday November 24th and shipping starts December 12th along with the latest expansions from Ring of Honor and Champions of the Galaxy.
