Upper Deck Releases Lifelike Tiger Figures

You might not be able to play a round of golf with Tiger Woods but you can put him on your desk.  Upper Deck has released some new Tiger figures that are accurate right down to the wind rippling through his pants.

The 2000 calendar year was an especially good one for the young phenom. He won three consecutive majors on his way to eventually fulfilling at least one version of the grand slam when he won the 2001 Masters. Winning four majors in a row – albeit not in the same calendar year – still ranks as one of golf’s greatest achievements. Now the Upper Deck Company has released a couple of Pro Shots action figures commemorating the finest stretch of golf a player has had in recent PGA Tour history.  The figures spotlight two of Tiger’s most thrilling moments from 2000, the U.S. Open and British Open.   The two moments captured include Tiger’s incomparable backswing with his driver in hand (British Open) and his crowd-pleasing iron shot on the fairway (U.S. Open).

The extraordinarily lifelike figures are now being prepped to ship next week. Locations include Toys R' Us, Champs, BC Sports, and select Target, Sports Authority, and Dick's Sporting Goods.  There will also be alternate colorway versions in clam shell packaging. The alternate versions are available only at Champs outlets and hobby stores.

Pro Shots figures are 7" scale collectible figures presented in the popular "hyper-realistic" style.  With sculpting by

industry leading Gentle Giant Studios and an impeccable level of accuracy in paint and deco applications, Pro Shots action figures recreate the top moments of sport's top athletes. Packaged in either a diorama collector's box or in a crisp clam shell, each Pro Shots figure connects the collector to the emotional moment out on the field of play. Pro Shots figures packaged inside the clear “in the moment” diorama-style display box also include an Upper Deck trading card commemorating the moment.

Besides these latest two variations, Upper Deck has previously released Tiger’s victories at the 1997 Masters and the 2000 PGA Championship. The figures generally run less than $20.
