Ovechkin On Steroids?

No, not really. At least not that I know of.

Anyway, I first saw this over at Tarik's blog, then on PR Newswire. Upper Deck Authenticated is releasing a limited number of Alex Ovechkin action figures (pictured below) designed with "stylized realism." The price tag? A whopping $49.99 for the home version and $99.99 for the pair of 11-inch toys.

If you're looking for something a little more realistic (and cheaper), I suggest the McFarlane figure. In fact, the one that I ordered arrived just yesterday, and it's pretty darn sweet. Get 'em before the price goes up for the "throwback" uniforms!

My sister got me the McF version for my birthday. As it's my third one (you bought me my first one, JP, the Amonte), i'm now being accused of having a doll collection. i think i'm going to go the full route and get the Afro Samurai figurines and call it a day. Or maybe some Barbies.

LMAO cd...

I recently acquired the new Ovechkin McF model. It's nice but the face looks nothing like Alex and the visor isn't tinted as advertised on the website.

Still, a better bang for your buck. $50 for these comic book figures is ridiculous.
