Saluting Hockey Fans with Canadian Retail Exclusives
Friday, August 11, 2006
McFarlane Toys salutes our Canadian hockey fans with a trio of team-centered NHL 3-packs coming this fall to Wal-Mart Canada. Previous hockey 3-packs for the Detroit Red Wings and Toronto Maple Leafs, as well as our "In The Crease" Goalies 3-pack were offered exclusively at Wal-Mart Canada in 2005 and were a big hit with collectors.
These 3-packs will be released at Wal-Mart Canada in mid-October, with extra product being sent to each team's home market. Let's take a look at the prototype photos for these 3-packs:TORONTO MAPLE LEAFS: Mats Sundin 2, Tie Domi & Tomas KaberleEDMONTON OILERS: Jason Smith, Ales Hemsky & Chris ProngerMONTREAL CANADIENS: Saku Koivu, Michael Ryder & David AebischerWe'll also be releasing three NHL 2-packs this fall, showcasing some of the best players from the six Canadian NHL teams. While there is no shortage of hockey fans worldwide, Canada is where hockey was born, and where the game's passion runs deepest.
