Previously Announced Two-Packs Heading to TRU
Monday, October 07, 2002



As announced earlier this summer, McFarlane Toys is producing two McFarlane's Sports Picks: NHL two-pack exclusives for Toys "R" Us Canada.

The first is the boxed set featuring Joe Thornton (Boston Bruins, No. 19) and Jose Theodore (Montreal Canadiens, No. 60). This shooter-on-goalie two-pack includes both figures, all equipment, ice bases and goal. This box has been shipped to the retailer and should be available soon.

The second Toys "R" Us Canada exclusive will be a Tommy Salo (Edmonton Oilers, No. 35) vs. Saku Koivu (Montreal Canadiens, No. 11) set. As with the other two-pack, this shooter-on-goalkeeper exclusive includes both figures, all equipment, ice bases and goal. What's unique about this one is Koivu has never been produced in any previous McFarlane's Sports Picks: NHL series.

This two-pack is currently in transit and should hit Toys "R" Us stores in Canada in late October or early November.
