First Six-Player Line Coming in Early 2002

November 12, 2001

As announced on a bit more than a week ago, McFarlane Toys has signed a deal to partner with the National Basketball Association. Beginning in 2002, McFarlane Toys will go straight to the rack, producing action figures of the hottest hoopsters in professional basketball today.

    "I'm very pleased to be working with the NBA on toys," Todd McFarlane said. "Our sports fans are constantly requesting basketball figures and, given the success of our hockey and football toys, we believe McFarlane Sports Picks: NBA will be extremely popular."

    The initial lineup consists of these players:
