Here's the Latest Scoop About Who's Where

April 12, 2002

Manny Ramirez has been moved from Baseball Series 3 to Series 2.

If you've been involved in the hobby of action figure collecting for any length of time, you know that proposed future series lineups tend to change faster than the checkout clerk position at your local convenience store.

    Here at McFarlane Central, we do everything we can to prevent wholesale lineup changes, but some tweaks are inevitable. Here's where we stand today for certain later lines in 2002:

    McFarlane's Sports Picks: Football Series 4 has had player assortment changed from six to eight. The two new additions are New York Jets running back Curtis Martin and Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick. Also in Series 4, the main production version of Ricky Williams will be in a Dolphins uniform.

    In McFarlane's Sports Picks: Baseball, there are a couple switches. Manny Ramirez was moved from Series 3 to Series 2. Also, the Series 3 lineup was bolstered with the addition of Houston Astros pitcher Roy Oswalt and Montreal Expos right fielder Vladimir Guerrero.

    In McFarlane's Sports Picks: Basketball Series 2, Tracy McGrady of the Orlando Magic was subbed in for Chris Webber, who will appear in a later series.

    In Movie Maniacs 5, we are now only releasing one 18-inch figure, Edward Scissorhands.

    McFarlane Toys also has several special projects lined up for the remainder of the year. We'll announce those here as the details are finalized. Also note, we cannot at this time show pictures of any of the newer figures announced above, as most are in approvals. As soon as they're available, they'll be shown here.
