Gracelyn RePlays – Ichiro Suzuki

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!

One of the great things about RePlays MLB figures is the use of  logos(checkout the Rawlings mit) and neat accessories they come with.McFarlane Playmakers have great looking figures but fail to use officially licensed logos on any of their figures equipment(at least not the MLB figures ,not sure about the NFL ones).Another cool thing about RePlays is that most of the accessories are removable(check out Jeter’s   shades and baseball)!My only gripe about these figures is that while McFarlane’s Playmakers are fully pose able,RePlays are not.They do have some articulation but not as much as  Playmakers do.Another small problem with  RePlays  is that while trying to pose your figure it’s not uncommon for a leg or an arm to come off  in the process but since these are more for display purposes and not so much an action figure, it’s a nuisance that can be overlooked.I like RePlays and wish Gracelyn would have continued to make these awesome MLB figures!
