Just checking in to let you guys know that I haven’t forgotten about ya ! We’re getting closer and closer to the start of the MLB season and I’m chompin’ at the bit!Pretty much everything baseball takes precedent right around this time. So definitely stay tuned as I’ve got a couple of new things/discoveries to post about and I can’t wait to get to them. So I’ll leave you with a quick pic of one of my all time favorite action figures, Toxy!
With Spring Training already upon us and the Baseball season looming,i thought it would be appropriate to show some love to some of my under exposed figures in my collection.I really liked this line of MLB figures,even better than McFarlanes to a certain extent.The removable accessories and detailed sculpts were very much comparable to McFarlanes Playmakers and Gracelyn also included a stand with each figure.It’s a shame this line didn’t stand the test of time and while i believe they are still making NFL figures,we will have to wait and see if Gracelyn will take another swing at making MLB figures again!
It’s MLB playoff time and sadly my NY Mets have once again suffered through another losing season.There’s always next year.The Yankees on the other hand always seem to be right in the middle of things come playoff time and this guy right here has a lot to do with that.Derek Jeter has to be the most recognized player in the majors and in the entire world of sports for that matter.I am not huge fan of Jeter nor am i big on the Yankees but i know greatness when i see it.So to me it was a no-brainer to pick this iconic sport stars figure up from a local department store where it sat for days at the bottom of a clearance bin.These RePlays MLB figures were released by a company called Gracelyn in 2007 along with an NFL line of figures as well.I’ve seen some NFL RePlays since their initial release but no MLB.I’m wondering if McFarlane’s MLB Playmakers had anything to do with that,seeming to be the more popular brand.Who knows.What i do know is that these RePlays figures are very cool,and i wish that Gracelyn would have followed up on them.
