We May Need A Bigger Box For These 'Giants'
McFarlane Toys Announces New MLB Championship 3-Pack
Thursday, January 03, 2013
This new 3-pack might not be colossal, enormous, gigantic, and mammoth to all, but it is definitely “Giant”! In celebration of another riveting Major League Baseball post-season, McFarlane Toys has announced that it will be releasing a San Francisco Giants Championship 3-Pack later this spring!
Winning their second World Series in three years, the Giants are on the cusp of being called a “dynasty”. The 2012 Giants exemplified the spirit of a champion by battling with their backs against the wall, not once, but twice. The World Series itself was relatively anticlimactic, as the Giants rode the wave from the previous two series, and dominated the Detroit Tigers in 4 games. This Championship 3 Pack celebrates the wild ride that was the 2012 playoffs by showcasing key players who helped deliver another Parade down Market Street for the people of San Francisco. Each pack includes a scaled Commissioner's Trophy!
Posey has played two full seasons in the bigs, and all he has to show for it is an NL Rookie of the Year Award, an NL MVP Trophy, and 2 World Series titles. Not a bad start to a career. Posey can be seen wearing the grey uniform, along with the World Series patch, that he wore in the deciding Game 4.
PABLO SANDOVAL (SPORTSPICK DEBUT)
Lovingly referred to as “Kung Fu Panda”, Sandoval is a homegrown talent for the Giants. After sitting out most of the 2010 World Series run, he came on huge for Giants in the 2012. Named the MVP of the World Series, Sandoval saved his best for when it mattered most. His figure is seen in full swing, capturing his masterful play in Game 1 of the World Series, hitting three homeruns.
MARCO SCUTARO (SPORTSPICK DEBUT)
Nicknamed “Blockbuster” because of how amazing he played after he was traded during mid-season, Scutaro helped lead the Giants into the playoffs, and was named the MVP of the NLCS, where he batted .500, with 3 doubles and 4 RBI’s. His figure captures the tense moment during Game 2 of the NLCS right before Matt Holliday collided with him as he slides into 2nd base.
Look for this celebratory Giant’s 3-pack in stores this June!
