Sponsor Spotlight: McFarlane Sports

By Mark Fischel

Yeah, I got them.

I got a few of them lined up on my bookshelf, and even though I am a grown man, I am not ashamed to admit that I have what some would consider toys sitting on display in my office.

But if you haven’t had the chance to see them yet, you probably would find it hard to resist the urge to have a couple of them as well.

What I am talking about, are the McFarlane SportsPicks. These figures (I would find it hard to call anything with a hockey player “dolls”) might be some of the most detailed and realistic looking figures, I would almost call them sculptures, around.

Standing about 6 inches tall, made of high quality plastic, and hand painted, all the figures are sculpted to be exact replicas of your favorite NHL’ers. The detail is very startling. You can see Forsberg’s blue eyes, puck marks on the goalie pads, and the determination in Thornton’s eyes. All figures come with a base to hold it upright, and the goalies come with their own nets and water bottles.

So where can you buy these figures? Well, you can drive around to your local stores and hope you are lucky enough to get them before the scalpers do, or you can go on Ebay and pay exaggerated prices from collectors, or you can simply do the easiest and most cost-effective thing and buy them from Angelo over at McFarlane Sports

I have personally bought my figures from Angelo for the last year, starting with the first NHL and NFL sets that came out, and I have been 100% pleased with the service and knowledge. I didn’t have to drive all around town looking for the figure that I wanted (Forsberg and Broduer), I just dropped Angelo a line and told him what I was looking for. When the sets came in, I had them in less than a week!

Head on over McFarlane Sports
and look around at all the figures he has for sale, including NBA, MLB, and NFL figures as well. Notice the detail and the extremely affordable prices, and Angelo even has a special deal only for Hockey’s Future readers.

If you buy a case of series 3 hockey, receive $7 off the total price. If you would rather just have the complete set of players, you can take $5 off the total price! The players that are going to be in series 3 are as follows (and some are pictured here):

Alexander Mogilny
Mark Messier
Pavel Bure
Scott Stevens
Roman Turek
Joe Sakic
Chris Osgood
Olaf Kolzig
Mike Modano.

So why drive around all day? Get them now before the rush, and you won’t have to worry about looking for them during the holidays as well. Trust me, you won’t be disappointed in the quality and detail of these figures, and they will look great next to your memorabilia or on your bookshelf.

And make sure to mention the special for Hockey’s Future readers, $7 off a case of NHL 3 figures, or $5 off of the Series 3 set!

In addition, ask how you can put a pre-order in for what is shaping up to be an exciting series 4 NHL set which is going to include Jarome Iginla and Ilya Kovalchuk!

Thanks for reading, and thanks for supporting Hockey’s Future’s sponsors!
