Hasbro Drops Another Starting Lineup NBA 6" Figure Preview Image

by Jay Cochran
August 08, 2022
Hasbro today dropped this new preview image for their newly announced 6" Starting Lineup line that will kick things off on September 22 with a NBA based figure. The teaser highlights the number 45 as in 45 days until the drop. It's unclear if the number 45 has any other significance to who the first figure might be based on. Michael Jordan briefly wore a #45 jersey when he returned to the Bulls after trying his hand at MLB, but in this image the figure appears to be wearing a blue uniform as opposed to a red one. I guess we will just have to keep guessing on who the first figure will be based on for Hasbro's new line, at least for another 45 days.

"Back in my day players got in two fist fights before they made it to the other end of the court. We didn't shoot 3s because thats for the WNBA. We went for the dunk every time (The basket was 5 feet higher back then) while Dennis Rodman stabbed us in the chest while in the air. The players today wouldn't make it in the 90s." Zerzar999 should be on Inside the NBA, he'd fit in perfect.

Ya, I'm an older cat. Those are the guys I remember. Of course I know Curry and LeFlop James, actually all these guys. I'm just remembering back to the glory days where players played both ends of the court and they didn't take zero resistance crash to the ground every time someone scuffed their kicks. I'm sure there will be a legends sub-line where some of these guys show up. You're probably right about the Chuckster. He's pretty greedy with his face. Guess he's just to pretty to lend it to anyone.

What, you want accurate shoes and tats?

For $50 each I want them to actually play basketball.

youre aware its 2022 right? not one of those players is currently in the nba and none of them are pictured for wave one. and even if somewhere down the line we get some legends, barkley def wont be part of it, he wont sign over his likeness to anything.

i do agree tho, they should not have tried to scale these figs. the ja morant fig is barely shorter than the embiid lol.

I really want to get behind this. I'm 90% onboard and if possible will get Ja Morant, but where did the beautiful hoop display go?I'd expect it to come if you're dishing out 50 bucks.

I want to get most of these but at 50 bucks I reasonably can't... and living in Mx it's not even likely I'll be able to get a single one.

Not totally surprising really, seems like WWE has had some lawsuits with tattoo artists because they've used their art in games and such (I believe I recall a Randy Orton tattoo causing some issues maybe?). And WWE figures don't put tats on of licensed designs, for example Braun Strowman's Superman tattoo. Not on one of his figures. So I assume Hasbro went the safe route of just not having any tats.

no it wasnt wwe, it was randy orton himself suing 2k games. the licensed tats i kinda get, but how jazwares can do jerichos album cover art tats and mattel couldnt does make u wonder.

i dont think its safe, its just lazy. mcfarlane had lebrons tats with no issue. and these are gonna cost double the price lol. basically theyve forgone all detailing whatsoever in favor of articulation.
