Unorthodox AEW star Danhausen has revealed his first ever official AEW action figure.
The Very Nice, Very Evil star has been one of the most popular wrestlers in the company since his debut in January 2022, despite wrestling very few matches in this time.
The former ROH star has been aligned with the Best Friends since debuting in AEW during the Orange Cassidy vs Adam Cole match at Beach Break last year.
Danhausen appeared from underneath the ring to curse Adam Cole, helping Orange Cassidy to victory to put an end to their feud.
He has teamed with the Best Friends team since then, although he had a brief run together with Hook as the tag team Hookhausen. Danhausen became one of the highest selling wrestlers on ProWrestlingTees during that time, even challenging CM Punk.
However, a Danhausen action figure has alluded him until now. A smaller “Heels & Faces” toy was released last year as part of the recent set, although now he has his own official AEW figure for the first time in his career.
Danhausen Action Figure
Danhausen revealed his new action figure today, with a recent Tweet showing the complete figure for the first time ever.
The popular wrestler, who based his gimmick on late-night talk show host Conan O’Brien, tweeted out the first official images of the first ever official, full-sized Danhausen action figure.
The toy showcased Danhausen in the gear he wears when outside the ring, including black shirt, black tights and his signature black and white face paint. His face paint was inspired by his love for horror movies.
The Danhausen action figure had previously been showcased in digital render form, but a physical product had yet to be produced. Luckily, the Very Nice,Very Evil vampire-turned-wrestler was on hand to give the fans what they wanted.
In the Tweet, Danhausen said:
Danhausen’s very first, very evil official @aew actioned figurine. A dream come true.
While the complete details of the figure have not been revealed yet, fans will be hoping for a very special accessory. He is known for using a jar of teeth as a weapon in the ring, with the reason being that teeth are found in humans, so are not a foreign object and cannot get you disqualified.
Fans are also hoping for a “Chase Variant”, showcasing Danhausen in his in-ring gear with complete tattoos.
Danhausen has also forged a friendship with CM Punk since he signed for AEW, in one of the most unlikely friendships in wrestling.
Hamish is a writer and podcaster and wrestling fan who is a key part of the Atletifo team.
After playing countless hours of WrestleMania X8 on the Gamecube, he discovered Rey Mysterio getting his head crushed by The Great Khali, and thus a love for professional wrestling was born.
He is also a Media Graduate, as well as writing for multiple sites about Premier League football and the culture of Wales – his home country.
