NFL 3-PACKS RETURN TO TOYS 'R' US
Three Different Sets Rush Into Your Collection This Fall
Friday, May 25, 2007

McFarlane Toys debuted our NFL 3-packs with four sets (Giants, Steelers, Patriots and Cowboys) exclusive to Toys 'R' Us stores in 2006. The sets were a hit with new collectors who may have missed their first opportunity to grab some of the players, and also with established collectors who seized the opportunity to pick up unique uniform options for four players (Hines Ward, Drew Bledsoe, Tedy Bruschi & Corey Dillon), updated logos for two Giants (Tiki Barber & Michael Strahan), and Sports Picks debuts for Plaxico Burress and Joey Porter.

We put together a trio of NFL 3-packs for this season with the goal of satisfying both the new and established collector. These 3-packs will be available at Toys 'R' Us stores in early October.

The Philadelphia Eagles 3-pack includes Donovan McNabb 2, Brian Dawkins, and Brian Westbrook. The three figures will be painted in the Eagles' three different jerseys (green, white and black) making two of the figures available in jersey combinations never offered before.

The Dallas Cowboys Quarterback 3-pack offers a look at the chronology of the key position in the Cowboys' offense. From Roger Staubach to Troy Aikman to Tony Romo, the Dallas offense has enjoyed stability at QB for most of the last 30-some years. These three figures will be painted in three different Dallas jerseys, making two of the figures available in jersey combinations never offered before.

The "Elite Club" Running Back 3-pack takes a page from Fantasy Football leagues nationwide and picks the top three selections from many draft boards: running backs LaDainian Tomlinson, Larry Johnson and Shaun Alexander. This pack will showcase Johnson's first sculpt, Alexander's second and Tomlinson's third. All three figures will be offered in jersey combinations never available anywhere before.

Stay tuned to Spawn.com for photography of these figures in the coming weeks!
