McFarlane Makes Changes to Upcoming NFL Figures
LT Shifts to 12" Size, Terrell Owens Gets Another Figure and Barry Sanders Slips to 2009
Toys Posted 3/13/2008
McFarlane Toys has made several changes to their upcoming NFL releases, impacting the LaDainian Tomlinson Collector's Edition and the Barry Sanders 12" figure.
First, the Barry Sanders 12" figure has been postponed until 2009. For 2008 a 12" figure of LaDainian Tomlinson will be released. No announcement has been made regarding the uniform (or uniforms) for this figure, but it has been confirmed that the pose will be a 12" version of Tomlinson's "hand-off" pose as used in NFL Series 12 (as shown to your right), NFL 3" Series 5 and the Elite Club Running Backs.
With the 12" LT figure being planned, McFarlane chose to remove LT from the Collector's Edition ranks and replace him with Terrell Owens. According to TMP, the current plan is to have Owens sitting on the bench, much like the original Tomlinson in NFL Series 16.
