Friday, September 05, 2003
Our first NFL two-pack featuring a boxed set of Green Bay Packers QB Brett Favre, No. 4, vs. Chicago Bears LB Brian Urlacher, No. 54 was a spectacular success when it was released several weeks ago.
As detailed in a story in July, McFarlane Toys has a complete list of various sports two-packs scheduled for release in 2003. We're extremely excited with the interactive nature of the sets.
There's been a change in the order of the two-packs' release that we need to report. The next scheduled NFL two-pack to hit stores will be: Rich Gannon vs. Derrick Brooks. This NFL two-pack features Oakland Raiders QB Gannon, No. 12 vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers LB Brooks, No. 55. Coming in late October.This set will be followed by:Ed McCaffrey vs. Zach Thomas. This NFL two-pack features Denver Broncos WR McCaffrey, No. 87 vs. Miami Dolphins LB Thomas, No. 54. Coming in mid-November.The other remaining NHL hockey two-pack is still as scheduled:Jeremy Roenick vs. Marty Turco. This NHL two-pack features Philadelphia Flyers C Roenick, No. 97 vs. Dallas Stars G Turco, No. 35. Coming in late September.All two-packs include both action figures and bases to create a custom diorama plus any standard equipment associated with that player (sticks, goals, etc.).
In the United States, these two-packs will only be available at Toys R Us, WalMart and Target. The NFL pieces won't be offered in Canada, but we're working on expanded distribution of the NHL pieces.
