As mentioned back in December, a new wave of your favorite baseball stars was expected to be announced. Some of the games biggest stars are now available for order, and the lineup is dotted with all the guys you want to collect on today’s diamond.
The guys everyone seemed to want most like Corey Seager, Mike Trout, and Mookie Betts will sure enough be available to be immortalized forever in plastic on your shelves in your man cave or office. Here’s a look at the full 2017 list of players soon coming to a Toys R’ Us near you:
Now, I’ve definitely got to order the Betts, Seager, Trout, and Giancarlo Stanton. I also pre-ordered baseball’s best pitcher Clayton Kershaw because well; he’s Clayton friggin’ Kershaw. He’s a sure fire Hall of Famer. But you see some other great names on here with the company doing a great job of representing the game all around the league.
Russell Martin is in a unique catcher pose (pictured above), something that the company has worked hard to incorporate. Also getting some looks are Joey Votto of the Reds, and Freddie Freeman of the Braves. It’s nice to see teams that aren’t expected to be in pennant races represented. A couple of surprise names like Roughned Odor and Corey Kluber are coming out as well.
If you can’t wait until these are on store shelves and want to guarantee yourself a figure – you can preorder any of these over at Clarktoys.com right now.
There are only a limited number of these released for every player, and in fact Buster Posey is now completely sold out and not available. So if you see a name you like on the list, you might want to move on it now before it’s too late!
We are excited to see some of the poses that come out as well as uniform choices. You always hope guys like Trout, Betts or Votto are represented in their great home white uniforms that are classic representations of their real life counterpart. A guy like Rizzo can be expected to be in that familiar Cubbies away grey.
We are very happy to have a company that’s passionate about baseball once again producing high quality figures!
