ID808D Crosby TRU Exclusive Out_Front

By Stephen Laroche | Beckett Hockey Editor

Last season, Imports Dragon made its debut with its collection of NHL Premium Sports Action figures and the company is almost ready to release a limited collection of new items featuring players participating in the 2016 World Cup of Hockey.

Drawing from some of the biggest names in the game today and showing them in their international uniforms or as part of Team North America or Team Europe, there are two scales of Imports Dragon 2016 World Cup of Hockey figures to collect (2.5″ and 6″), giving options for those who wish to either display these international heroes or utilize the smaller ones to play in a tabletop game.

The 6″ line consists of 17 figures that are available at mass market retail along with a pair of retailer exclusives which will be in demand. Sidney Crosby‘s figure is exclusive to Toys R Us locations and is limited to just 2,400 copies while Connor McDavid will only be available at Walmart and is a bit more plentiful with 8,000 produced.

Fans lucky enough to visit the fan village held in Toronto during the 2016 World Cup of Hockey can get their hands on a special figure of Jonathan Toews in a red Canadian jersey. These will be individually numbered out of 1,000 and could sell out quickly.

The smaller figures are available in blind packaging with a card showing game stats and there are three levels of collectability for the players inside (common, uncommon, and rare). Those looking to learn to play the game can buy either of the three-figure starter packs which includes dice, pucks, and a mat.

Imports Dragon 2016 World Cup of Hockey figures will be released on September 1.

    I’ve looked at almost every Toys R US in the Toronto Area and none of the stores know anything about the Sidney Crosby, 6′ figure for the Hockey World Cup 2016 edition as you stated above “Sidney Crosby Canada (Toys R Us Exclusive, /2400) and a release date of Sept.1.2016??? Can you tell me where to find what I’m looking for?

    I just purchased an error Ryan Suter from a Canadian Tire in Burlington Ontario. The packaging and figurine are Ryan Suter but the display plate is Sydney Crosby.
