If you thought NHL Series 30 was awesome, just wait until you see next group taking the ice for McFarlane’s SportsPicks! NHL 31 includes a dynamic combination on youth and experience.
Carey Price and Phil Kessel return to the lineup with all new poses, while we have the SportsPicks debut of Andrew Ladd, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, and Zdeno Chara. Rounding out the series is Hall of Famer Wayne Gretzky, who is in an all new pose, and holding the Conn Smythe Trophy as a member of the 1988 Edmonton Oliers Stanley Cup winning team.
The Great One’s figure depicts him capturing his fourth and final Stanley Cup win for the Edmonton Oilers in 1988. This moment in time showcases Gretzky with the Conn Smythe Trophy, after being named the MVP of the Stanley Cup playoffs.
The series also includes the SportsPicks debut of three NHL players. Zdeno Chara, Captain of the Boston Bruins; Andrew Ladd, Captain of the Winnipeg Jets; and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, who is developing into one of the most exciting young players in the NHL.
Fans will again have plenty of Collector Level versions to look for including Carey Price as the rare ‘GOLD’ Collector Level figure, wearing the retro blue jersey once worn by the Canadiens back in 1909. This jersey was last worn back in 2009 to celebrate the centennial anniversary of the team.
So work on that slap shot while you wait for this all-star lineup to hit stores September 2012.
