Hot on the heels of the Madden NFL 17’s cover reveal, McFarlane Toys revealed its first wave of Madden Ultimate Team figures.
The first series of Madden Ultimate Team figures will consist of reigning NFL MVP Cam Newton of the Carolina Panthers, NFL Rookie of the Year Todd Gurley of the Los Angeles Rams, Oakland Raiders wide receiver Amari Cooper, Houston Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins, New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, and New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski. Specialty and hobby store cases will contain one of two exclusive alternate version figures with game specific commemorative bases.
Switching up the format somewhat, figures will also include a redemption code players for seven Madden Ultimate Team Pro-Packs (a $10.50 value) that potentially unlocks exclusive NFL stars.
With my 49ers so terrible I’m not exactly expecting any new figures anytime soon. Could you imagine the overflow of Blaine Gabbert figures on the shelves??
Still, it would be nice to see McFarlane Toys spread the love a little more. How many Brady and Gronkowsi figures do we really need?
The first of three waves will hit stores in August just in time to play Madden, which arrives on game consoles Aug.23.
