NHL SERIES 8 TOY PHOTOS REVEALED
Lineup Changes, Too, on Upcoming Hockey Figures
February 06, 2004

As announced several months ago, the eighth series of McFarlane's Sports Picks: NHL action figures is another Canada-centric line. Similar to NHL 5, the series 8 lineup will be our second hockey line developed exclusively for mass retail in Canada. The demand for hockey product up North is strong enough to support a line released "out-of-season," and so our second "Canada-direct" line was created with specific appeal to the Canuck faithful.

Here is the NHL 8 lineup, due in stores throughout Canada in April:
  • Gary Roberts, Toronto Maple Leafs left wing, #7
  • Chris Chelios, Montreal Canadiens defenseman, #24
  • Ed Belfour, Toronto Maple Leafs goaltender, #20
  • Trevor Linden, Vancouver Canucks center, #16
  • Luc Robitaille, Los Angeles Kings left wing, #20
  • Patrick LaLime, Ottawa Senators goaltender, #40
The eagle-eyed among you may notice there are now only six figures in the line. Unfortunately Al MacInnis in his retro Calgary Flames uniform was pulled from the lineup, as we were unable to secure permission for the figure before the production deadline.

As stated, this line will be limited to retail sale throughout Canada. However, spawn.com will make a limited number of these sets available to U.S. fans through the Spawn Store. Much like NHL 5, this will be a full set of six in a special factory box. There will be no variant guarantee in this case.

Until April gets here, enjoy the NHL8 photography.
