The 23rd series of the massively popular McFarlane Toys line of NHL figures is almost here! Already available for pre-order, it should arrive in about a week. Which means, of course, that if you’re a fan and want to snag this line of all-new figures, you’ll have to act fast!
Series 23 comes with Marc-Andre Fleury, Alexander Ovechkin making the best face ever, silver fox Gordie Howe, Teemu Selanne, Bobby Orr and Luke Schenn. As usual, each figure features some pretty incredible sculpting and painting, capturing everything down to the last little detail. They come with bases that mimic the ice rink and stand in poses taken from life. Though I’m not a hockey fan, I am an action figure fan and I have to say that the dynamic quality of each one is pretty amazing. Sure, there isn’t much in the way of articulation, but the same can be said of NECA’s action figures and they don’t have half the life that McFarlane’s designers can boast. Really great stuff.
If you’re a collector, you’ll definitely want to grab these while you still can. And if you’re not, at least get this Ovechkin figure. It’s hilarious.
