NHL Series 10 Toy Lineup Altered

Calgary's March to the Finals Paves Way for New Iginla Figure

A reference delay and one player's postseason dominance have convinced McFarlane Toys to make a change in its already-announced lineup for December's McFarlane's Sports Picks: NHL Series 10.

Calgary captain Jarome Iginla will take Markus Naslund's place in NHL 10. We were looking for a very specific pose for the Naslund 2 figure and we have not been able to locate enough reference to sculpt from. With no work started on that figure, it created a "late window" to make a lineup change. With Calgary's run to the Finals, the stellar play of Iginla and those cool red/black jerseys with the tie-ups it seemed like an obvious choice to us - and a great opportunity to "make good" on a SNAFU that pulled a Calgary figure from the NHL 8 lineup. We do expect to release the second Naslund at some point in the future, just not in NHL 10.

With this change, the final NHL 10 lineup is:

We will provide photography of this series as soon as it's available.
