NBA Action Figures - McFarlane Toys
The new NBA action figures from McFarlane Toys look so real, you'll think some Harry Potter wannabe cast a shrinking spell on Kobe and Vince and froze them just as they're about to dunk the ball.
These miniature versions of Kobe Bryant, Vince Carter, Tim Duncan, Kevin Garnett, Allen Iverson and Jason Kidd were designed by Todd McFarlane. He's the same guy who's also designed figures for the NHL, the NFL and Major League Baseball. Todd's a big sports fan (he owns the 70th home run ball hit by Mark McGwire) which is why he didn't miss anything when he designed these NBA action figures.
The figures from McFarlane Toys are only about half a foot tall but they're big on little details. The mini Allen Iverson has tons of tattoos - just like the real Allen. The Kobe figure's expression as he's jumping up for a layup is the same look you catch on Kobe's face while he's playing for real. Each figure is wearing his team jersey and is positioned the same way you'd see them in a real NBA game. The Vince Carter figure comes ready to lay down a one-handed jam while Kevin Garnett's comes with a hoop and shows Kevin finishing off a reverse dunk. All the NBA action figures also have moveable joints so you can put these players into action yourself.
