UPDATE! These figures are NOW IN-STOCK!!
McFarlane’s MLB Baseball Figures have been one of the studio’s most popular collections, bringing true-to-life renderings of some of the greatest players in the game, from the old days to the modern era of America’s Pastime. Now, in their 6-inch figure line, they’ve created for groups of team-specific figures that fans are sure to love! Check out these lineups!
THE BOSTON REDSOX
THE NEW YORK METS
THE NEW YORK YANKEES
THE PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES
(Final Figure To be Determined)
Each 6-inch figure is dynamically posed on a section of the diamond and boasts an uncanny likeness to the player it represents–something that has become the hallmark of McFarlane toys in general. Each team can be purchased as a set or as individual figures if you’re a fan of one player in particular. They’re available for pre-order now and will be shipping in September!
Series 26 of McFarlane’s celebrated Baseball figure line has just been released and is now available individually or as the full set of 6. The line-up boasts talents and stars like Evan Longoria, Victor Martinez, Prince Fielder, Kevin Youkilis, CC Sabathia White and Tim Lincecum.
And if baseball isn’t your sport, well, I’ll also make mention of the upcoming 25th series of McFarlane’s 6-inch hockey figure collection. No pictures of it yet, but the line will include Dustin Penner, Henrik Sedin, Marian Gaborik, Nicklas Backstrom, Patrick Kane, Sidney Crosby, Scott Gomez and Phil Kessel.
As per usual, you can order those as individual figures, or as a complete set. Or, if you’re a serious collector, grab the sealed package of figures to make sure you get your hands on some of the awesome variants sure to be found in every McFarlane series.
Baseball heroes Tony Gwynn, Carl Yastrzemski, Joe Morgan, Babe Ruth and Thurman Munson have already been immortalized in almost every way possible, from places in Cooperstown (the baseball Hall of Fame) to spots in the record books, but now McFarlane has made them into collectible figures that feature likenesses impressive enough to make them a truly worthy tribute to the greats.
Here’s a look at this, the seventh series from McFarlane.
Like the aforementioned NBA series, this group is also subject to the Collector Level distribution, which means that some are rarer than others. Use this chart to figure it out! The figures can be pre-ordered now, but ship in March!
I’ve been collecting action figures since I was a kid. I started out with Batman, expanded into the DC universe and would later go into a number of fandoms from Hellboy to Pirates of the Caribbean to Legacy of Kain. One thing, though, that I never understood was the passionate love for figures of athletes. Never a sports fan, I always thought it seemed strange to collect figures of real people: what was the charm in having something smaller than life without any fantastic elements at all?
Clearly, I was mistaken. As I would later learn, sports figures are among the most popular out there and are well on their way to totally replacing trading cards. Who knew? Over in our sports section, you can check out MLB, NHL, NBA and NFL figures from the folks at McFarlane. But first, here’s an item we just added to CmdStore…
The New York Yankees have won 27 World Series titles, the most in Major League Baseball history! McFarlane Toys is proud to commemorate this historic achievement with a World Series Champions Yankee 4-Pack Boxed Set.
This boxed set honors the Yankees “Core Four” — Derek Jeter, Andy Pettitte, Jorge Posada and Mariano Rivera — for winning five World Series titles with the New York Yankees between 1996 and 2009. Each player played a significant role in bringing home the title for the Yankees. Catcher Jorge Posada batted .333 during the 1998 World Series and blasted a home run in Game 2. Pitcher Mariano Rivera was the 1999 World Series MVP. Derek Jeter won the 2000 World Series MVP after batting .409, hitting two home runs, a triple and two doubles during the five game contest. Finally, Pitcher Andy Pettitte had the unique distinction of picking up the clinching win in all three rounds of the 2009 postseason.
We’ve just gotten a shipment of NBA Legends figures from McFarlane SportsPicks! It’s the fifth series of the 6-inch Legends collection and fans will be pleased to see some of the greats get their dues in this massively popular line of figures.
Series 4 features Magic Johnson (2), Dan Majerle, Joe Dumars, Karl Malone 2, John Havlicek and Hakeem Olajuwon. Each one is brilliantly sculpted in a pose that captures all the action of an NBA game and comes with a base and ball.
We’ve also got the new Collector Level assortment cases of NFL figures, a new series of NHL figures and NLB figures on their way! If you’re a fan of the McFarlane SportsPicks collection, you’ll definitely want to take a look.
