WITH THE FIRST PICK, MCFARLANE TOYS SELECTS CAM NEWTON
Carolina Panthers’ draft pick gets the SportsPicks treatment in NFL 28
May 06, 2011
Copyright 2011 TMP International, Inc.


Following the NFL Draft, Todd McFarlane had a decision to make. A Collector Level slot in NFL 28 was being reserved for a Draft Pick figure, and it was up to Todd to decide which new pro was going to get drafted into OUR league. In the end, Todd agreed with the Carolina Panthers – who drafted Auburn quarterback Cam Newton with the first overall pick.

Newton put together an awe-inspiring run through the last college football season. Newton complete 66% of his passes for 2, 854 yards and 30 touchdowns, while also rushing for 1,473 yards and 20 more scores on the ground. He earned the Heisman Trophy as college football’s best player, and led the Tigers to a thrilling 22-19 win over the Oregon Ducks for the National Championship.

Newton will make his SportsPicks debut as part of NFL 28, set to arrive in stores in the middle of September. He’ll be wearing Carolina’s teal jersey, and will be available as a Bronze Collector Level figure. With only 3,000 individually-numbered figures heading out to retail, fans will be lining up to draft Newton into their own SportsPicks collection. Stay tuned to Spawn.com in the coming weeks to see prototype pictures of the figure.


This is awesome news. cannot wait to get my hands on one of these

Only problem is they're going to make Cam in that horrid blue home jersey and not the black.

Write Mcfarlane company a quick note Here: http://www.spawn.com/info/contact.aspx, and tell them you think Cam should be made in the black home uniform--the best uniform in football

yeah, why would they do the blue? Black is the way to go, or the white. But as little as blue is used it seems kind of weird. Do other figures get the alternate uni?

Nope. This is one of the only ones. Kind of ruins the figure. That's why if enough of us just write them a short note, I think they'll definitely change it before his figure goes into production.

Most of the Panthers figures they've done have been originally released in white or black jerseys, so maybe they're releasing Cam in blue just to change things up a little?

Most of the figures have an alternate jersey, Jake had white with black as the variant, Peppers had the black with the white as the variant, and Smitty has the white with the blue as the variant. There isnt a fig I know of that doesnt have a chase variant available... I still havent decided to go get the Weinke or the S.Davis Panthers variant...

I guess you can all them 'action figures' Zod. I like having them decorating the room with my Panther Fathead and the rest of what I got. Its not like I reenact games with the figs, theyre just for show...

Thats cool that we get another McFarlane, I thought they'd have done a D.Will by now, guess Ima have to get another custom...

Well Zod, not everyone is as narcissistic as you are and can idolize someone other than themselves.

Only when they make a Panthers figure, and I don't display them. Just like you said, I collect them. They aren't on display at my home, and my condo doesn't have a man room. I don't collect cards or star wars figures, but Mcfarlane's football figures are pretty cool. So I guess that this is my 'star trek'. Like my girl says, it's sports we're talking about here. So while you're probably more manly than me with your posters of Andy Roddick's wife.... what can I say? I like football that much.
