NBA Collector Series 1

mindstyle NBA 1

You might have seen MINDstyle's NBA line on display at San Diego Comic Con 2010. And after seeing the figures that make up the NBA Collector Series 1, you probably thought these were made by Michael Lau or Eric So. They're actually from artist Coolrain. While I like the NBA, and have had a sports figure void since Upper Deck ended their vinyl line, I'm just not getting these figures...they look like Little People.

SDCC10: MINDstyle Booth

The folks behind MINDstyle appear to be huge fans of boxer Manny Pacquiao...since they released several colorways of his vinyl self. The booth also had several Disney properties as well as a line of NBA Figures.

Booth Favorite: NBA Figures
Even though I give the NBA some flack, I still watch it. And with Upper Deck leaving the vinyl toy realm, someone needed to step up and begin producing some vinyl sports figures. (Although I'm not sure if this is it...)
