This just in. McFarlane's is gonna release the Steelers 2 pack in August. But what the hell? How many times do they have 2 release the same Hines Ward?

McFarlane Toys presents two of the most beloved players of the Pittsburgh Steelers. The combination of Ward on offense and Polamalu on defense has been the integral part of not only the Steelers 2008 Championship season, but their 2005 Championship as well.

Probably the same number of times they "release" the same Ben. They know they'll sell every one. They're lazy.

Very disappointing.

See, if they were artists instead of lazy greedy @#$%wads, they'd do something "signature" like...

or...

and we'd all say "Wow, those McFarlane people are sumpin'". But, no.

Bastards. We demand more!! A glance at my av might inspire a 2-pack.

Burn them!!

Yeah, the lazy @#$%s sell another figure, but we real fans get "our" Troy. :tt02::tt::helmet:

Also the Troy is the same body sculpt as the old patriots cory dillion. At least the could have removed the right elbow pad which as far as I know Troy never wears. I get so tired of them using the same poses with different heads.

I don't know. I found the pic while surfing. Its close to the actual scene, but...

Also the try is the same body sculpt as the old patriots cory dillion. At least the could have removed the right elbow pad which as far as I know Troy never wears. I get so tired of them using the same poses with different heads.

It shows their laziness and lack of interest. All they had to do was put Troy's head on the bruschi figure and we'd all be all over it. But NOOOOOOO. We have a half ass figure with a damned pad to remove. @#$%^&*()(*&^%$#@$%^&*()(*&^%$#$%^!!!!!

Alas, I'll probably have to buy the new Troy and put his head on the bruschi body I have. Interestingly, I have the right outstretched arm but not the left. And the left on the new Troy is closer to the actual scene than the bruschi left arm.

So, the question becomes "who to make from the "remains" :chuckle: of the new Troy?". Suggestions?

Did U guys ever thought about emailing those nut brained folks at the McFarlane?

Or maybe V could just send Mr.Tony over there & have him kick em around a lil bit since he lives in so close 2 Arizona. :chuckle:

quick question how often does mcfarlane produce figure featuring third or road jersey.

BTW, I got a freaky feeling, they're gonna include Troy's latest figure as a part of McFarlane's newest SB set. Same for Ben's figure. They're just gonna put on white jerseys, & BAAM, there is our most anticipated team set. If V R lucky there won't B another Ward. :chuckle:

U know, I just saying this because the guys at the McFarlane's R just bunch of lazy bastards.

Once in a while, I think. I'm not sure how they have their system set up. :noidea: Sorry.

Speaking of McFarlane blowing it. This is almost unbelievable.

Hines' SBXL catch...

And what do they do? They come out with a Troy in the identical pose. WTF are these people thinking about?

Though there R a so many soccer figures, I've seen just a couple of basketball figures around here. But I did buy a 3'' Ben from a guy in Hongkong though. But if I was in the states, I think I would B buying more figures 4 sure. Even from the other teams & pose em with the Steelers ones as a duo.

Let me know if U want 2 visit. I'll do the best I can 2 make your visit worthwhile. :thumbsup:

Yes. I was so pissed off, when Ray Ray broke Mendenhall's shoulder last year. So, u know, as a revenge, in a kind of silly way :chuckle:, I wanted those figures as Mendy jumping over Ray Ray. :thumbsup:

Could I C the photos of your duo set, please please please.

The way Mendy destroyed that blitzing SD LB a few weeks ago, and the way he is running, I'm looking forward to seeing him and McStabbin on the same field again.

At this point I wouldn't buy any of those figurines anymore...These 2 are almost as bad as the Ben that you posted in another thread.
