McFarlane Provides Sneak Peaks of Collector Edition Favre and Tomlinson Figures
2008 NFL Collector Edition Figures to be Repainted and Modified Versions of Popular Regular Series Figures
Toys Posted 2/17/2008
McFarlane has offered some sneak peeks at the upcoming NFL Collector Edition figures of Brett Favre and LaDainian Tomlinson.
A sample of the Favre figure was displayed at the 2008 Toy Fair tradeshow. The figure shows Favre standing on the sidelines in a white jersey and yellow stocking cap. Favre is holding a football and standing in front of a bench. This is a repainted and slightly modified version of the Favre figure from NFL Series 12.
McFarlane also released some cropped photos that suggest the LaDainian Tomlinson will be very similar to the LT from NFL 16. The CE Tomlinson looks to have him in the powder blue uniform; rather than a Gatorade cup in his hands, it appears he will be holding a towel.
McFarlane's CE figures are expected in stores in August, 2008.
