I cannot believe this. :pissed: I am a Steelers fan who collected all the McFarlane figures that were ever came out on Steelers, except the Legends series. And I actually wrote to the guys at the McFarlane like a year or two ago that if they make the whole offense or the defense with all 11 guys on Steelers as a set including smal piece of field, I would buy it. And guess what? http://www.spawn.com/news/news2.aspx?id=13118 They finally made it but no Steelers, because apparently Steelers are not "one of the most popular teams of NFL" :banging: Pissed of a little. Now I hope our guys in black and gold would kick these "McFarlane's popular teams'" arses! :tt02:

I guess McFarlane doesn't look at things like team apparal sales,ticket sales,the long-ass waiting list for season tickets.

Or TV ratings - in the last 10-15 years, it seems to me the 2 SBs that garnered the highest Nielsen ratings both had the Steelers as one of the participants. Coincidence? Think not.

I think they will eventually release all teams. I hate they do that but happens on all of this waves or sets, they can't seem to release them all at once.

It takes them too long to make the figures, so they do it in batches of 4-6 teams or so... probably they went by cities with large media markets... Steelers will probably be 2nd wave,,

I stopped liking McFarlane after they shut down my idea for a Bungles Jail series last year...

I could see them in their little orange jumpsuits and soap on a ropes... It would be adoreable...

They said that the 23 Bengal fans in the country didn't provide a big enough market for them to buy all that orange paint... sigh...

Speaking of Vick, they could do a whole series on him:

Mike Vick/Ron Mexico
Mike Vick - Airport Security (with secret water bottle smuggling action)
Mike Vick - Dog Trainer

Awesome job! I wouldn't known them from an authentic in any way. I agree, the throwbacks look a lot better now that I've seen them "in action".

Those look really, really good. What kind of paint did you use for these? I have a couple of Kendrell Bell McFarlane's boxed up in the closet that I may try this on in the future.

I use a basic acrylic paint like fold art or ceramacoat which you should be able to find at walmart

Just can't hide that team pride. Anyway I wish I would have had a larger upperbody for this but had to work with what I had. Elbow pads are sculpted. As always comments welcome.

You should've keep checking with your local Toys R Us. That's how I got many of my Steelers figures back when I was in the states.

Best bet is ebay, that is where I got most of mine. I have yet to see a Steeler or Penguin McFarlane figure in a store.

Have you guys seen the upper deck All Star Vinyl of Big Ben? It was limited to 1000 pieces and I was lucky enough to snag 3 of them before the sold out. Still have 2 of em left. They are definatley a little different but they are pretty cool

I usually buy a few of each player and only open one up for display and keep the rest in their original package.

Heres my latest custom. I used a Kendrell Bell as the base for this and modified the pose by shaving off the opening for the right arm then repositioning it and resculpting the padding and sleeves. comments welcome as always.
