2 Pack (courtesy of

McFarlane Toys is proud to present an NHL showdown between two Hall of Fame Legends as a Wal-Mart Canada exclusive two-pack this October. Toronto goaltender Johnny Bower stares down Detroit's Gordie Howe in a meeting that pits a six-time MVP against a two-time Vezina Trophy winner.

Howe is painted in Detroit's red jersey for the first time, while Bower showcases the white Toronto jersey that debuted as a chase figure in 2007's NHL Legends 6 lineup. This confrontation takes place on McFarlane Toys' Classic Hockey Goal base, where both figures display perfectly for a one-on-one showdown. "Mr. Hockey" goes glove-side against "The China Wall" and only you can decide the outcome.

McFarlane Toys is working overtime in 2008, tweaking our Sports Picks NHL lineups with special consideration to our Canadian collectors. With hockey being the official religion of Canada (and Todd McFarlane being Canadian), it makes sense to gear our NHL lines to include the best and brightest stars from the six teams "up north." With that in mind, we're proud to announce the addition of Calgary Flames defenseman Dion Phaneuf to our NHL 20 lineup.

Phaneuf made his Sports Picks debut in 2007's NHL 15 lineup, and was sculpted wearing Calgary's red uniform with the black ties around the neckline. Because Calgary's white uniform didn't sport the ties, there was no chase version available for Phaneuf. The entire league unveiled a uniform makeover for the 2007-08 season, and Calgary has made their uniforms, well, uniform. Since Calgary's white jersey now has ties around the neckline, we have the opportunity to offer our Phaneuf figure in Calgary's white uniform for the very first time.

With the addition of Phaneuf, the NHL 20 lineup looks like this:

* Nicklas Lidstrom (2)- Detroit Red Wings
* Daniel Sedin - Vancouver Canucks
* Jarome Iginla (3) - Calgary Flames
* Jonathan Cheechoo - San Jose Sharks
* Vesa Toskala - Toronto Maple Leafs
* Daniel Briere - Philadelphia Flyers
* Dion Phaneuf - Calgary Flames

NHL 20 is scheduled to arrive in stores this December. Stay tuned to in the coming weeks for photography of this lineup and much more.
Wow, considering the wealth of young talent currently in the league, this is a rather boring checklist...
