As you’ll see in the video, we’ve come a long way from the generic plastic faces of Starting Lineup dolls. (Although we’ll always have a spot in our hearts for McFarlane Toys and their NHL sculpts.)
They’re available in 2-and-a-half-inch, 6-inch and 12-inch figures. (Or “figgers,” as the gentleman in the video calls them.) All the figures are expertly painted and time was taken to get the faces right.
And you can even remove their helmets and goalie masks! Although that does leave Carey Price looking like some mutant with jaundice:
But the coolest thing about these new toys is … THEY’RE PART OF A DICE-BASED CARD GAME!
As someone who took his Dungeons and Dragons dice and created my own baseball game using old Topps sets … well, this just warms all 20 sides of my heart.
The line hits at the end of November, just in time for holiday binging.
