They've been around for a while, lots of great figures of NHL, NFL, MLB, NBA, etc. They do a couple hockey series a year including a Legend series. I have about 150 of them, mostly hockey. They can be found at Toys R Us, Walmart, and other stores. If you want to get into collecting them try eBay, you can find some great deals.
I have most Montreal ones but i don't consider myself a collector...i open them up as soon as i get them and put them on display....I don't have the Patrick Roy one and cannot get myself to fork out the money it goes for because i'm just going to open it up when i get it
How much do they go for and where are they on sale?
They're usually around $10 and can be found at Toys R Us, Walmarts, and other hobby/collectible stores. I'm not sure where the best place in Canada is to find them. You could also go to www.spawn.com and order them. eBay is also a great place to find them, just search for 'NHL McFarlane' and a ton of them will be there. If you have any other questions or need help let me know.
Wow, great. I bet those Theo and Aebi figurines are worth thousands.
No, but I've seen some of the Roy figures go for hundreds. They make what are called 'chase' figures, which are harder to find and are some variation of the original figure such as different jersey or retro team, etc. I've seen a 'snowy' version of a Tom Brady fig go for a couple of thousand. I think the Aebi figure will get you about a nice shiny nickel right now.
