The time is drawing near, hockey fans. The long-awaited NHL Legends line of action figures is nearing completion. Given our company's close association with the National Hockey League, a line of legendary hockey players has been high on the must-do list for several years.
The deal was finalized in 2004 -- though the baseball Cooperstown Collection managed to get on the schedule first -- and McFarlane Toys is proud to present its first series of classic hockey action figures.
The legendary players in this line represent several eras of modern hockey. Each is sculpted in an action pose with accurate period uniforms and equipment. They are:WAYNE GRETZKY, center, Edmonton OilersWAYNE GRETZKY, center, Los Angeles KingsGERRY CHEEVERS, goalie, Boston BruinsFRANK MAHOVLICH, left wing, Toronto Maple LeafsYVAN COURNOYER, right wing, Montreal CanadiensEach figure in the line features a unique sculpt, including both Gretzky figures; the Kings version captures the moment-in-time when he broke Gordie Howe's all-time points record.
Both 12-inch NHL Legends figures feature The Great One, but in two different uniforms:WAYNE GRETZKY, center, Los Angeles KingsWAYNE GRETZKY, center, Edmonton OilersThe Kings 12-inch is the same sculpt as the 6-inch, while the Oilers 12-inch features yet a third different pose.
Both the 6- and 12-inch NHL Legends figures are set for a September release. Until then, enjoy the photography.
