Mini Barney

Today I've got a mini Darwin Barney, but it doesn't look like this...


...or...


...this

In fact its not even a card.  So what is it?

 

It's a Darwin Barney mini Lego figure.  Actually, its not from Lego (but they are compatable with Lego sets), but from a relatively new company, OYO Sportstoys.  Blessed with both an MLB and MLBPA license, they've put out mini-figures for over 300 players.


The face is made to somewhat look like the player...


...and the back has his uniform number and name.  I like that OYO used the correct font for the numbers on the back.  They also come with a home plate stand that is numbered, though I have no idea what the numbers mean.

The only thing the figure lacks is a card, like Starting Lineup used to do.  I suppose the Topps monopoly put the kibosh on that.

  1. Nice! But "Legos" with forearms is a little weird...
