McFarlane Toys is proud to announce the addition of a Brett Favre New York Jets figure to our upcoming NFL 2008, Wave 3 lineup.
Shockwaves rippled throughout the NFL this summer when Green Bay traded their legendary quarterback to New York. It's a new start for one of the greatest quarterbacks of all-time, but the move itself isn't as unprecedented as you might think. We've had 42 Super Bowls in NFL history, and 27 different quarterbacks have led their teams to Super Bowl wins. Of those 27 quarterbacks, 11 have finished their careers playing for a different team. Favre joins Joe Namath, Johnny Unitas, Ken Stabler, Joe Montana, Jim McMahon, Jeff Hostetler, Mark Rypien, Kurt Warner, Trent Dilfer and Brad Johnson as a Super Bowl winning quarterback who changed addresses while looking for another title.
We scrambled to get a figure ready for the NFL 2008, Wave 3 lineup, and will be offering two different versions. Favre will be available in New York's all-white uniform at all specialty and mass retailers that carry Sports Picks, with Toys 'R' Us receiving a green jersey Favre as a store exclusive. Still can't believe Brett is a Jet? We've got photos to prove it:
* Brett Favre - New York Jets white jersey (available at specialty and mass retailers)
* Brett Favre - New York Jets green jersey (Toys 'R' Us Exclusive)
NFL 2008, Wave 3 (including Clinton Portis, Marion Barber, Donald Driver and Jay Cutler) is scheduled to arrive on shelves right around New Year's Day - just in time for the NFL Playoffs.
