I used to collect McFarlane Sportspicks. I collected them more than I've ever collected anything else. I'm honestly ashamed at how many I have. But I stopped collecting a few years ago because TMP's double standards.
This line is a perfect example of them. When the NHL adopted the new Reebok jerseys and uniforms, TMP said that meant none of the old figures would be re-released as new figures because their sculpts wouldn't match the tighter-fitting RBK stuff. Yet here we have a line of just that: old sculpts in the new uniforms.
I don't fault TMP for doing this; I actually encourage it because I said all along that the difference in sculpts wasn't enough to matter. But my problem is they've once again gone back on their word. There was always a reason why the Sabres, Panthers, and Coyotes fans of the world couldn't get their figures, and often times those same reasons are ignored for the Leafs, Rangers, and Canadiens of the same world.
So, I can't get a Daniel Briere repaint of the upcoming figure in a Sabres uniform for the reason stated above, but a Canadian retailer can get an entire line of "outdated" sculpts. Todd pretends to have standards for his company, but they go out the window if Canada or Wal-Mart come calling.
