TWO EXCLUSIVE COLLECTOR'S CLUB FOOTBALL TOYS COMING
The Store at Spawn.com to Offer Rice, Sharpe Figures
Monday, May 17, 2004

The McFarlane Toys Collector's Club has two big upcoming surprises for fans of our McFarlane's Sports Picks: NFL action figures. The Club -- which operates through the online Store at spawn.com -- will offer two, count 'em, two NFL exclusive action figures to members in 2004.

Stoked? We are, too. Check 'em out:

The first is a 12-inch version of Jerry Rice in his San Francisco 49ers uniform. This fan-requested item will be offered as an exclusive in conjunction with the release of the regular NFL 12-inch Series 2 retail line; click here for more info on the regular line. Look for the retail series and the Rice 49ers Club exclusive to be available in late September.

The second football exclusive for 2004 is in conjunction with the release of McFarlane's Sports Picks: NFL Series 10. The surprise figure: Shannon Sharpe, Denver Broncos TE, No. 84. Sharpe is the surprise Club bonus figure to an already stacked line (click here for more info on NFL 10). This figure will be available only through the online Club in October.

We're revealing the Rice photo today and will unveil the Sharpe artwork as soon as it's available.

In the meantime, we need your help. We're looking for fan input on which uniform you'd rather see Sharpe in: the current blue Broncos uniform or the retro orange crush. Please head over to the sports message board and place your vote.
