McFarlane Toys has announced that they will release three hockey 2-packs that will be sold exclusively at Lowblaws stores in Canada. These will go on sale on December 26, 2007–a.k.a. “Boxing Day”.
Each pack contains previously-released figures, giving fans a second chance on a favorite player they might have missed. The 2-packs are:
— Jarome Iginla (Calgary Flames) vs. Roberto Loungo (Vancouver Canucks)
— Sakiu Koivu (Montreal Canadiens) vs. Martin Brodeur (New Jersey Devils)
— Bryan McCabe (Toronto Maple Leafs) vs. Jason Spezza (Ottawa Senators)
Since these are being sold only in Canada, they tend to focus on Canadian-based players, with the exception of Martin Brodeur–who has been the best goalie in the NHL for a while, as well as Team Canada’s goalie in the Olympics and such. Brodeur has not been available since 2004, so this is a good chance for fans to get a figure of him now.
