EXCLUSIVE SHANNON SHARPE FIGURE IS A BIG HIT WITH COLLECTORS
Debut 6-inch NFL Collector's Club Exclusive Sells Out in Hours
Thursday, December 09, 2004

On Monday, Dec. 6th McFarlane Toys' Collector's Club opened its doors and offered two versions of a Shannon Sharpe NFL Sports Picks figure. The current Broncos blue jersey and the retro "orange crush" jersey version both sold out inside 48 hours. The current blue jersey version sold out faster than the retro orange version.

The Sharpe figure is the second sports Exclusive offered through the Collector's Club this year (following the 12-inch 49ers' Jerry Rice). It's the first time we've offered an Exclusive figure in two different painted versions simultaneously. While that likely won't become the norm for our Sports Picks Exclusives, it is an option we can use when there's a need for more than one version of a figure.

The Collector's Club will be offering Exclusive figures that support our upcoming toy releases including the recently announced Latrell Sprewell coming up in early 2005. Click here for more info on that. And don't forget our Club-exclusive version of Colonial Marine Hicks from Aliens, coming soon to the Store at spawn.com.
