you are buying them and while at first this seems quite expensive, each figure comes with a section of ice as well as boards and plexi and once they are assembled you can see why the price is justified - I think it is anyway! Having said that, currently I only own one of them, #17 - Steve Hanson - the one in the middle, and while eventually I hope to get all 3 there is something looming on the horizon that may affect this....
McFarlane Toys will, before the end of the year, releasing their NHLPA licensed range of figures covering the stars of the NHL - exactly the type of figure I was looking for when I went to the US. If the quality and detail shown in the Hanson brothers figures is carried on with these they will be absolutely awesome. The only drawback is they are not licensed by the NHL itself. just the NHLPA, so they are unable to include club badges on the uniforms but I think Iíll be able to live with that!!
