FOOTBALL FIGS TAKE THE SNAP
See New Packaging Details Here
July 20, 2001
McFarlane Toys' first line of professional football action figures - McFarlane's Sports Picks: NFL - is due to hit stores in September. Each figure is dressed in an official team uniform and is sculpted in an action pose.
To tide fans over until these gridiron giants hit the store shelves next month, spawn.com is providing some exclusive photos of the figures in their final packaging. We also changed the design of our packaging. These figures will be wrapped in a clamshell-style package with no blister card, similar to the Tortured Souls. Overall, the packages are slightly smaller than our normal carded figures, and feature a cutting-edge insert card in the blister.
Dallas Cowboys running back, No. 22, stands 5 11/16 inches tall with four articulation points. The figure includes a football field base and a football.
Indianapolis Colts running back, No. 32, stands 6 1/4 inches tall with five articulation points, and a football field base and football.
Minnesota Vikings wide receiver, No. 84, is 6 1/4 inches tall running at full stride and has six articulation points. Includes "R" tattoo on right arm, football field base and football.
St. Louis Rams quarterback, No. 13, stands 6 5/8 inches tall with five points of articulation, and a football field base and pigskin.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive tackle, No. 99, stands 4 3/8 inches tall (and 2 1/2 inches wide!) in his three-point stance. Includes a football field base and braided hair that hangs out of the back of his helmet.
Tennessee Titans running back, No. 27, is 6 5/8 inches tall as he prepares to hit the gap. The figure also includes a football field base and a pigskin.
