Konnan Completes the Mexican Legends Prime Lineup for Q1 2020!

Rounding out the lineup for Legends Prime in Q1 is Mexican Legend Konnan.  Before he entertained US audiences on Monday Night TV, the Cuban born Konnan started his career in Mexico.  Like many luchadors he wrestled under a mask and wore bright colors, which is something many of his later fans never witnessed.  This Legends playing card represents that time in his career before losing his mask in 1991.  How will this version of Konnan fare against the top masked luchadors of today?

Q1 2020 for Legends Prime features Konnan, Vampiro and Juventud Guerrera.  To preorder any Promoter Prime product CLICK HERE.  Preorders are also now available for Legends Ladies Expansion II, Future Shock: Centra Wrestling Federation 2116 and Best of Mexico Indies set!  To preorder now CLICK HERE.  Preorders for all game editions will begin mailing by March 31st!

Toni Rose has her eyes set on the Women’s Tag Team titles!

Joining the Legends Ladies II lineup is another trainee of The Fabulous Moolah, and another Hall of Fame wrestler to boot. Hailing from the great state of Indiana, Rose began her career in the 1960’s. She rose through the ranks quickly, and soon was in a tag team with Moolah.  The two were very successful, and won the most prestigious version of the Women’s World Tag-Team Championship on two occasions. Rose toured the globe and competed against fellow Legends rookies Susan Green and Joyce Grable, and both times the tag titles were involved. Rose was described both as the consummate heel, and “attractive and mean as a snake”. Given her teacher, this makes sense.  Will Rose and Moolah have the same success in your promotion?

Toni Rose joins Fabulous Moolah, Joyce Grable, Candi Divine, Ida Mae Martinez, Susan Green and Beverly Shade in the Legends Ladies II 8-pack.  Preorders are now available for Legends Ladies Expansion II, Future Shock: Centra Wrestling Federation 2116 and Best of Mexico Indies set!  To preorder now CLICK HERE.  Preorders for all game editions will begin mailing by March 31st!

Cruiserweight Legend Juventud Guerrera is Coming to Promoter Prime

Continuing the theme of Mexican Legends with an influence on US wrestling, come one of the most influential cruiwerweights in the 1990’s, Juventud Guerrera!  Guerrera is a 2nd generation wrestler, who got his break in the US in 1996 alongside some of the other top luchadors at the time.  The high-flying style was a new concept for the US audience and Juvi became very popular to one of the biggest wrestling audiences of all time, and won multiple major cruiserweight championships in the late 90’s and early 2000’s.  Juventud Guerrera is sure to enhance any promoter’s cruiserweight division!

Q1 2020 for Legends Prime features Juventud Guerrera,  Vampiro and 1 other Mexican Legend.  To preorder any Promoter Prime product CLICK HERE.  Preorders are also now available for Legends Ladies Expansion II, Future Shock: Centra Wrestling Federation 2116 and Best of Mexico Indies set!  To preorder now CLICK HERE.  Preorders for all game editions will begin mailing by March 31st!

 

Ida Mae Martinez Breaks Out of the Black and White Era and into the Latest Color Legends Set!

Agile and skilled, she delighted the fans whenever and wherever she competed.  She won the Women’s Championship of Mexico, proving she had what it took to be a singles champion. Martinez will look to take on her contemporaries and even test herself against some of the prominent women’s wrestlers of today.

Filsinger Games Summer Convention Coming to Chicago in July 2020!

On July 11th Filsinger Games brings its annual summer convention, GalactiCon, to the Windy City of Chicago.  While GalactiCon has moved around the last few years, this is the farthest West the convention has ever traveled.  Chicago is a hotbed of wrestling and central to many Filsinger games fans.  The site of GalactiCon is the Holiday Inn Chicago O’Hare Area, which is super easy to get to by car, bus or plane and is right on the train line to downtown Chicago.

This year’s convention will take place on 1 day, starting at 10AM and will run to 10PM.  It will include all the GalactiCon traditions including the Trivia contest, Charity Auction, Q&A and of course lots of tournaments!  The best part is that everything takes place in the same venue where everyone is staying, with a bar and restaurant open late for post convention conversation.

For game fans in town Friday night, we will be heading to the iconic Logan Square Auditorium to see Freelance Wrestling, before coming back to the hotel for the midnight release of the 50th GWF game edition Origins 2136!  For folks still around on Sunday afternoon a group will also be attending the Chicago White Sox game.

For all the details on the convention including information on the hotel room block visit the OFFICIAL GALACTICON 2020 WEBPAGE.

See you this summer on the banks of Lake Michigan!

 

The Newest Legends Ladies Expansion Has Just Become Fabulous!

Perhaps the greatest women’s wrestler of all time has joined the Legends roster!  To many historians, The Fabulous Moolah is synonymous with women’s professional wrestling, as she was the most prominent name in the sport for decades.  Starting in the 1940’s as Buddy Roger’s valet she went on to win the most prestigious version of the Women’s World Title relatively quickly, and defended against all of the women’s headliners of the day.  She continued to be a top name in women’s wrestling until the 1980’s.  There are plenty of women in Legends who will be looking to take down Moolah.  Who will you book her against first?

Fabulous Moolah joins Joyce Grable, Candi Divine, Susan Green and Beverly Shade in the Legends Ladies II 8-pack.  Preorders are now available for Legends Ladies Expansion II, Future Shock: Centra Wrestling Federation 2116 and Best of Mexico Indies set!  To preorder now CLICK HERE.

Also Promoter prime for 2020 is now available to preorder. Q1 2020 for Legends Prime features Vampiro and 2 other Mexican Legends.  To preorder any Promoter prime product CLICK HERE.

Preorders for all game editions will begin mailing by March 31st!

Joyce Grable Gets the Color Treatment in the Newest Legends Expansion

Joyce Grable comes to the women’s Legends division ready to fight! Adopting the same last name as a previous lady wrestler, Grable competed around the country throughout the 1970s and 80s. She held singles titles and multiple tag team championships. Grable also trained new wrestlers and battled fellow Legends Judy Martin and Leilani Kai many times, as well as Sherri Martel. Grable will make her presence known in singles or tag team action, and also likes to mix it up in battle royals, as she tries to win gold in your promotion.

First appearing in the Legends line in Legends 11, this is Joyce Grable’s first color Legends card.  Joyce Grable joins Candi Divine, Susan Green and Beverly Shade in the Legends Ladies 2 8-pack.  This set will debut in March along with Best of Mexico and Future Shock 2116.

From the Lone Star State its Susan Green!

Susan “Tex” Green would not be denied her dream of becoming a professional wrestler, and it led her to a Legendary career that spanned the 1970s to the 90s. She was determined and unrelenting in asking fellow Legend Joe Blanchard to train her. Green’s first match took place on her 15th birthday and after high school began traveling the world to wrestle.  She became a top women’s star holding various singles and tag team titles. Green was known for leaping over the top rope into the ring before matches, and then winning them with her Texas bulldog finisher. Anyone that climbs in the squared circle with her is in for a fight!
