McFarlane Toys has been making some of the most realistic sports action figures for quite some time now. But the 2009 college football line features a first: Current NFL stars in their NCAA uniforms. The six-inch figures are part of the McFarlane Sports Picks line. The players in the first series include Peyton Manning (Tennessee), Ray Lewis (Miami), Tom Brady (Michigan), JaMarcus Russell (LSU), Adrian Peterson (Oklahoma), and Hines Ward (Georgia). The detail on the figures is amazingly life-like and each player is shown in a signature pose. Whether you're a fan of the school or the player, these toys will be awesome.

The action figures will be in stores in August. See more pictures after the jump.

UPDATE: Right after I posted this, someone emailed me with some additional comments. And they were so good, I decided to share. Take it away Mal!


"I believe Rajon Rondo, and not Dwight Howard, should have been suspended. Howard threw an elbow during a fight for a rebound. Rondo punched Brad Miller in the face on the game-tying layup. THE GAME-TYING LAYUP! Sounds really, really wrong to me."

New Racing Game for the Wii is Bot-Tastic

One of the great racing games of all times is ExciteTruck. It was one of the Wii's launch titles, so you probably overlooked it. Also, the name seemed kind of lame. Honestly, ExciteTruck? That was the best you could come up with? Anyway, ExciteTruck gets a sequel--sort of--with ExciteBots: Trick Racing. Instead of brightly colored SUVs, ExciteBots lets you drive around brightly colored robots.
If this sounds silly, that's because it is silly. Click to the right to see a trailer for the game and keep reading for my review!
