cool new toy from McFarlane

I've been checking spawn.com (McFarlane Toys) for updates on the Eric Staal figurine in the works. The NHL 14 series won't be out until May of 2007, and they don't have any sneak peek production photos, but they've got a really cool new thing.

Now you can buy a rink display, which is a 1/22.66 scale replica of a goal zone. It's got the faceoff circles, hash marks, crease, trapezoid, sidewalls, glass, and everything else to make it look real. Buy the thing for about $60, take about 45 minutes to assemble it, and you've got a really cool way to display all your McFarlane figures.

Here's a picture of Todd McFarlane with the product. It doesn't come with the Red Wings/Leafs figures. You have to provide your own.

For a free hot dog with cheese, who can spot the really weird thing in the photo, and tell why it's weird?

You'll need to click on the image for an enlargement.

That a dude who spends his life creating comic books and action figures doesn't have a hot chick on each arm? No, wait - that's the really predictable thing in the photo.

(Disclaimer: I have around 15 of those ridiculous little toys, so who's the loser now?)

Well, he's a part-owner of the Oilers, but he's wearing a denim shirt with the old Coyotes' head logo.
