Actually, the Kovalev figure has been scrapped, and the Staal figure has been postponed. And it's being placed in a "Canada only" series. Collectors in the United States (read: Canes fans) will have to order the Staal figure on-line or find one on the black market. You know. The dodgy underground world of out-of-market hockey toys.
McFarlane has also altered their marketing strategy. Instead of issuing two sets containing six figures per year, they'll issue smaller sets of four figures more frequently.
The Series 14 set will have Marian Hossa in the Thrashers
The Series 15 will have Dion Phaneuf, Roberto "Yo, Luongo" Luongo, Staal, and Darcy Tucker. No details about poses or sweater colors on the Series 15 set.
