As an alumnus of Monmouth University, I receive a copy of the Monmouth University Magazine (linked above) each season. Every once in a while, the magazine reports on the latest happenings in the career of one of our favorite TNA Wrestling stars – Matt Morgan. For the Winter 2011 issue, Monmouth University talked about the recent release of Morgan’s latest Jakks Pacific toy figure. A graphic scan of the article is linked below and the text of the article is beneath the image.
Congratulations to my fellow Monmouth alumnus, Matt Morgan, on his latest figurine. I hope you folks enjoy reading the article!
Two former Monmouth athletes, football standout Miles Austin and basketball player Matt Morgan, have been immortalized in plastic as action figures released in late 2010. Austin joins Donovan McNabb, Tim Tebow, and Mark Sanchez as selections in series 23 of NFL players from McFarlane Toys. In January, Austin marked his second consecutive 1,000-yard season with 1,041 yards on 69 catches. In his action figure, Austin appears in a “retro” uniform and is designated as a premiere-level collector’s item by McFarlane Toys.
Before a Miles Austin action figure was officially produced by McFarlane, die-hard fans created their own customized versions using parts from other figures produced by McFarlane.
Matt Morgan, who was a member of the 1996 men’s basketball team that advanced to the NCAA tournament, had his second action figure released by Jakks Pacific. Now a professional wrestler with Total Nonstop Action (TNA), Morgan was selected for series 3 of the “Deluxe Impact” TNA action figures.
Morgan’s previous action figure, also by Jakks Pacific, was produced in 2004 when he wrestled for World Wrestling Entertainment.
