McFarlane FINALLY showing LA Kings some love!

If you collect McFarlane sports figures, you must know that LA Kings figures are few and far between. The last non-Legends figure made was Jeremy Roenick...that says it all. BUT running with whats HOT right now (ie: Los Angeles Kings: Stanley Cup Champions!!), this is coming out in October:

Jonathan Quick (w/ the Stanley Cup).

I would post a picture, but I don't want to break confidentiality rules...but it looks sweet, and has the Stanley Cup Finals patch as well.

He is in the home black jersey. And just to make it complete, there is a EDM Wayne Gretzky figure coming out in October as well that comes with....a Conn Smythe Trophy!!! EPIC timing!!

I thought this was going to be about a Fox Cartoon! Maybe Roger pretending to be a goalie and making a speech at a rally or something

I know they did some legends at least, I remember a couple Gretzkys and a Dionne at a minimum. Hopefully they put Brown and Kopu in a series as well, overdue. Stunned they didn't make a Doughty although I must say I stopped paying attention a while back.

You should see the Luc Robitaille figure McFarlane Toys did, the facial sculpting is horrendous.

about time. ive got the Gretz figures and need to add the Dionne and Luc as well. no way in hell JR will be added to the set. after that i was wondering when LA would get some love.

is that the actual model they are using on JQ? it's the same as the Lundquist figure

They are notorious for doing this. They just take a previous sculpt and repaint it. That's what they did with the Robitaille figure as well (I think they used a Kariya or Bure sculpt).

Just look at how crappy the likeness is:

Yep since they have to do very little work on anything at all for the goalies since the helmets are the same they seem to just recycle the same 4-5 models and repaint them.

Sad he doesn't have the cup...

This made it sound like it was going to be like the one a few years ago that had the player raising the cup. (was it lidstrom? I think it was someone on the Wings.)

Consider for a second that this mold exists and think what could have been... So close to needing one of these figures...

And Luc has the wrong stick, I have that one and it just doesn't look right because of the stick. So far my favorite is the Don Cherry one with his dog and I got the half rink from their store in Arizona. Not very functional and it's so big I don't have a good place for it in my house but the detail is pretty amazing.

What I find funny is the only thing Luc could not do well was skate so what does McFarlane do show him skating. He should be celebrating a goal or taking that short back swing slap shot. Also the pose makes him look like a right shot.

By the way the earlier post of the JQ Macfarlane is a picture of a custom job sold on Ebay a few weeks ago. It is not a licensed Macfarlane.

It was actually the sculpt they used for Pavel Bure.

Does anyone know if McFarlane is coming out with another LA Kings player considering the Kings won yet another Cup?

I don't even know if they still have the NHL license. Seems like they haven't had a new release since 2013. Their only release in 2014 came earlier in the year and it was only for Team Canada players.
