McFarlane Sports Pick error


WSU151

Recommended Posts

I've got a few McFarlane Sports Picks (not a huge collector), but this is the first time I've seen a McFarlane figure with a huge uniform error:

This figure is supposed to be released later this year, and hopefully they change it and give him the right helmet. It's just weird how they put the throwback helmet on top the current uniform.

Anyone else seen uniforms errors like this one? I'm talking straight from McFarlane, non-custom...

Don't know if this counts, but the NFL Equipment logo on Steve Young is placed REALLY LOW

They re-released this one with the white jersey and they got that one right

I'm not sure because I don't own the figure, but if it has the NFL Equipment logo it's completely wrong anyway. Steve Young retired before they switched over from the plain NFL shield.

Plus the Niners quit wearing white pants in '97 (switched to gold pants in '98) and therefore the jersey should just have the NFL shield.

Good catch

OOH!!! This isn't a mistake, they do this on purpose to a handful of figures to make them more rare and unique. You can sometimes find ones that are really off, and they can as well be worth a ton of money. Sometimes it's the whole uniform, those are worth the most (I found a Roger Maris Cardinals one once and passed it up :( ), then there are ones where there are only slight variations to the equipment (I found an Emmit Smith Cowboys one once with red gloves, again, I passed it up :( ). Here's an article that shows a bit more of what I mean

Variations

I don't think the figure above is a "chase" model. Usually, the "chase" models have full alternate/throwback uniforms, or different home/road uniforms (for instance, regular figure is in road uniform, chase figure is in home uniform). I've never seen a mix/matched model with a throwback helmet on a current uniform. And spawn.com (McFarlane) doesn't put chase models up on its website.

Is that a production picture or a prototype? If it's the latter, then there's a good chance that it'll be noticed & fixed before release. This kind of thing happens all the time - toy prototypes are often shown with deco that gets revised before going to manufacture.

Yes, but they as well make ones that have slight variations, such as what I stated about the Emmit Smith figure.

It's from the McFarlane website, promoting this year's release. Have any been produced? Not that I know about.

Understood...this is just the first one I've seen where the helmet does not match the rest of the uniform. There are a whole bunch of red-gloved Emmitt figures on eBay, BTW, if you still want to pick one up.

I noticed that mistake right away as well. As far as I know, all images like that on the McFarlane website are prototypes. It's not the first time a mistake like that has been made either. Check out these images of LeSean McCoy from Series 25. The website photo has him in his old #29 jersey and for some reason a grey facemask. The actual figure was updated to #25 after he changed his number and the facemask was fixed. None of the figures produced were incorrect.
