Toys R Us Exclusives For 2009
McFarlanes Toys R Us Exclusives for the "kick off" to the 2009 Season will give fans and collectors a real treat.
Toys R Us will be offering an exclusive six figure series as well as two new three packs to celebrate the official Open Day of the new series.
The six figure Toys R Us Exclusives series will feature:
Dustin Pedroia is Boston's second baseman and was awarded the 2007 American League Rookie of the Year.
Nicknamed "Pedroia the Destroya" he also helped the Red Sox win the World Series.
His good fortune and form continued on into 2008 and he was selected as the starting second baseman for the All-Star game.
Chipper Jones (2)- Atlanta Braves
The Braves have been plagued by injuries and inconsistencies throughout the 2008 season but Chipper Jones has remained one of the brightest stars on their rosta.
Despite having to battle through injuries the Braves ong time third baseman is flirting with hitting .400, which hasn't been achieved since Ted Williams.
Miguel Cabrera- Detroit Tigers
Miguel is a highly resoected first baseman and is considered by many to be one of the most talented players currently playing.
He found himself on the move during the off season when the Tigers made Florida an offer they couldn't refuse and so he joined the Detroit Tigers.
Melky Cabrera- New York Yankees
Melky is part of New Yorks core of homegrown talent keeping in line with Yankee General Manager Brian Cashman's policy of building the team from within.
Cabrera is another Yankee Center Fielder with range and a cannon arm to add to the Yankees defensive lineup.
Carlos Zambrano- Chicago Cubs
Carlos, or the "Big Z" was expected to be one of the gems of the free market but the Cubs weren't going to let him go that easily.
The Cubs have signed Zambrano on a long term contract extension and is anchoring their rotation as they set their sights on the World Series.
Justin Upton- Arizona Diamondbacks
Justin is one of the Leagues youngest stars and looks destined to become a top player.
Currently playing right field it looks like he'll be anchoring their offense for some time to come.
But that's not all because as well as these six Toys R Us Exclusives figures there will be two Toys R Us Exclusives three back:
New York Yankees Defensive three pack:
Nicknamed the "Bronx Bombers" Derek and Alex are featured here in classic poses with their pinstripe uniform.
Possada on the other hand is featued in an all new pose.
Derek Jeter Alex Rodriguez (2) Jorge Posada (3)
Jackie Robinson Day Tribute set
Each year Jackie Robinson Day celebrates the day when Jackie Robinson first played for the Brooklyn Dodgers, thereby breaking the color barrier and launching what was to become a Hall of Fame career.
After Ken Griffey Jnr requested permission to wear Robinson's number 42 uniform out of respect the MLB open the doors for anyone to wearingthe #42 for that day only.
Robinson is featured here in Brooklyn's classic uniform, with Ken Griffey Jnr in an all new pose and Robinson Cano wearing the Cincinatti #42 uniform.
