McFARLANE ANNOUNCES OFFICIAL NBA LICENSE
First Six-Player Line Coming in Early 2002

As announced on spawn.com a bit more than a week ago, McFarlane Toys has signed a deal to partner with the National Basketball Association. Beginning in 2002, McFarlane Toys will go straight to the rack, producing action figures of the hottest hoopsters in professional basketball today.

    "I'm very pleased to be working with the NBA on toys," Todd McFarlane said. "Our sports fans are constantly requesting basketball figures and, given the success of our hockey and football toys, we believe McFarlane Sports Picks: NBA will be extremely popular."

    The initial lineup consists of these players:

  • ALLEN IVERSON, Philadelphia 76ers guard, No. 3
  • KOBE BRYANT, Los Angeles Lakers guard, No. 8
  • KEVIN GARNETT, Minnesota Timberwolves forward, No. 21
  • TIM DUNCAN, San Antonio Spurs forward/center, No. 21
  • VINCE CARTER, Toronto Raptors guard/forward, No. 15
  • JASON KIDD, New Jersey Nets guard, No. 5

    Each player is dressed in an official team uniform and is sculpted in an action pose.

    Look for McFarlane's Sports Picks: NBA Series 1 in stores in March 2002.
