Brian Wilson (and beard) coming from McFarlane


By Chris Olds | Beckett Baseball Editor

The Beard, The Angel and a Prince are coming to a toy aisle near you.

McFarlane Toys has unveiled its 30th line of MLB Sports Picks figures and the seven-figure lineup includes two debut figures and some All-Star staples.

Most notable might be injured San Francisco Giants closer Brian Wilson and his world-famous beard. His figure will feature the pose he does in honor of his father when he closes out games. No word on whether “The Machine” will have any cameos when the figures arrive next month. (Need a Wilson checklist or OPG? click here.)

Albert Pujols will make his Los Angeles Angels figure debut in the series, while Prince Fielder will appear on his first figure as a member of the Detroit Tigers.

Toronto Blue Jays slugger Jose Bautista will be a chase figure in the series (he’ll have a standard figure sold in Canada and online), while Jacoby Ellsbury, Curtis Granderson and reigning American League MVP and Cy Young winner Justin Verlander will make just his second McFarlane appearance.
