The new Lidstrom looks nice, I too have been collectiing for a while. I have one of every Red Wing made to this point, including Fedorov as a Wings variant and the Series 2 Hasek with the bright Red paint. I only collect the white jersey's though. I noticed that Gordie 2 is only coming in Red as well. Oh well time to switch I suppose. I was hoping for a new Osgood as well as a Hossa. They will probably be coming. What about a Kronwall and Rafalski??? Any word on them?



I too have all the Wings figures. Hopefully they will make a chase Lidstrom in white b/c all of mine are white. For example, you can't get a Chelios in red b/c there isn't one. I would have preferred them all to be in red but for the sake of continuity I went with the only choice that would work with the whites. Fingers crossed for the white variants.
Being a mod doesn't make you special.

I collect these as well, I have all the Red Wings except the variant Hasek form series 2. I'm looking forward to the Lidstrom 2. They should do another 3 pack with a Stanley Cup Champions theme to it. We'd probably get a Hossa before a Franzen or a Holmstrom, usually thats how McFarlane does things. I can see it now, in series 21 it will be Marian Hossa in a Wings uniform and the variant will be in a Pens uniform.


all McFarlane would have to do is repaint the All Star Hossa that was available at the All Star game.

The Lidstrom 2 will be part of the NHL 20 line, which is due early 2009. They haven't gotten around to updating the main hockey page with it yet. (The whole line will be Briere, Iginla, Cheechoo, Lids, Toskala, D. Sedin, and Phaneuf.)

The next one released however will be Gordie Howe 2 in the the NHL Legends 7 line, in October.


According to spawn.com series 20 hits in November.

- Cujo (Leafs version)
- Osgood (Isles version)
- Hasek (first Wings version)
- Yzerman (original w/ Wings logo, unlike the one before McFarlane got logo rights)
- Yzerman with the Cup
- Shanny
- Hull
- Lidstrom
- Dats
- Zata
- Lang
- Gordie (still in package, haven't had a chance to open him)

I'm pretty well versed in McF SP's, so I'll tell you what I know. The rumor mill is that there is an Osgood 2 coming in the next wave that has not been announced yet. There was a shadow posted on the McFarlane site that was supposedly the new sculpt for him.

As far as Hossa is concerned...the release of his figure at the time was very controversial because the sculpt was using the OLD jerseys, but released at a time when the NHL had switched to the Edge jersey. Since the All Star figure was the current jersey, it was a Edge jersey painted on an non-Edge sculpt. McFarlane had to get special permission from the NHL to do that...and it was a one-time only deal. I do not know if the NHL would approve that again. Also, with the possiblity that Hossa only will be here for one year, McFarlane usually stays away from those players (unless it's a Yankee or Red Sox MLB figure.)

The only McFarlane I have is a series 1 Yzerman still in the box that is sitting on my desk that was a gift from my days as a writer years ago from the short-lived website Hockeyjunkies.com.

Thanks for the tips...so what's your source? Do you have any links, I'd love to the the Osgood shadow. Also anything on Kronwall or white variants of the New Gordie and Lids?

What kind of color is red? Red is a warning, a declaration, a color that says I'm ready to do what it takes. Red is focused and driven because red doesn't like second place. So what kind of color is red? Their kind.

Kronwall would probably be a case of someone they consider to be not well known enough to sell nationally. It's an excuse they use fairly often. Same goes for Homer, which I've been pestering them about for about two years now. There MAY be a white Howe and Lids...TMP is in the process of changing the way they do alternate jerseys...I don't know if or how that's going to carry over to the hockey lines

Here's the rumored Osgood shadow, along with a suggested ref photo someone posted:

Dude, a new Ozzie is a must!

I always thought a good Holmstrom would look like his goal against the Sharks in game four last year where he's jumping, twisting, and batting the puck out of mid-air.

I need more of those. Though I like getting non red wing collectibles too since it is cool getting all the greats in action figure form.

I just got the few Penguins figures they've released and have them set up against the few Wings that have been depicted from this year's team. Plus I have nearly a full complement of the 2002 Wings and Avs stars. I just wish they'd make a few more Ducks so I could recreate that great rivalry.

Heh...you have good timing. NHL 20 photography came out this afternoon:



Holy moly, that's got good detail! When I was scrolling through this topic, initially, I thought this was a real photo of Lids.

If I got one I would take it out of the box. It wont be worth anything and i would much rather have it out on my desk at work.


I agree. I buy them for my kids and put them up on their shelves.

I have no issues with people buying them as collectibles but I have to admit that I get peeved when some of the freaks out there buy everything up in site so fathers like myself or people who just want to own them can't find any.

I can't remember which figure it was (maybe Datsyuk) but I was trying to get a Wings player and couldn't find one anywhere in a 50 mile radius of my home. Every Zellers, Wal-Mart, Toys R Us didn't have it. I asked one of the employees at a Wal-Mart "What gives?" and he said they have grown men waiting outside their store at 6am waiting for the delivery truck. When it arrives, they buy everything in site. Not just the chase figures.
He said it's uncanny how these guys know when the shipments of new figures are due to arrive.

I guess it's good for them because they might be able to make a few thousand 20 years from now, but it sucks for guys like me that just want to buy a toy for their kid or put some Wings/NHL memorabilia on their desk.

I eventually had to have my brother in Winnipeg buy the stinking figure for me.

hey guys. i lived in phoenix for year where mcfarlane is. fun to walk into the store to buy stuff. i spoke with todd mcfarlane last year and suggested he do a lidstrom with the "C" and then I told him i would love to see Yzerman in the Legends with the Game 7 slap shot against St. Louis. Now I take no credit for the Lid's, because that was an easy one to do, but I am hoping for the Yzerman. He is a cool guy and huge hockey fan.

I have them all, including the 12 inch yzerman cup, excluding the gordie howe one(s).


But I'm on the look out for an old hanson brothers set (variant with blood) where the 3 brothers combine for a corner of the ice. Anyone knows where to find one. Please hit me up!!!!
