Toys on the side.
So if you are a fan of the McFarlane toys, then you might have some interest in this post. If you are not, click here for some Adult Erotica to tie you over until the next one.
So MacFarlane has announced that they will be offering a GM Place exclusive Trevor Linden Figure this coming October. If you are smart, you will be there opening day, buy as many as you can, and put them on ebay immediately. I find that these limited edition offerings often have a rather large percieved value to them, and that warm feeling can be fleeting. Nether the less, I'm sure I will get my hands on one.
Also, if you have had a chance to look at the new Series 20 that is out this November, you will no doubt be disappointed. It includes, but noy limited to, Iginla, Phaneuf, Lidstrom and Briere. These four aren't bad, but a bit boring. Don't they all have figures already? You can also get you dirty hands on Daniel Sedin, but not Henrik (they are twins, how hard could it have been to make both?), and if you are into collecting underachieving stars, there is also a Toskala, and Cheechoo for your liking. It's a good thing we didn't get any Kanes or Toews or Prices in there. That would have been horrible. Who picks who gets a figure down there anyways?
They will also be releasing the Legends Series 7 this coming October. It will include, a Stan Mikita, which is great, but I was hoping for an older Stan with the smooth helmet. They have also included the likes of Howe and Richard, and two each of Messier, and Gilmour.
You know what I'd like to see? A series of goons. I want a Tiger, a Semenko, a Probert, A Gino. That would be great. With their helmets and gloves off, and jerseys over their heads. You listening Todd? What? You don't read HockeyDump? Oh... well then,... nevermind.
