So what is his pose? QB, FB, TE or the famous "LT on Bench pouting about losing in playoffs" pose?

So does that mean he comes with the fuzzy beard?

It was a given that Todd McFarlane would go with a Tebow figure (even before the Broncos selected him) Tebow will sell better than any of the other rookies.

As far as the pose?

Many feel it will be a repaint of

or

or it could be

a few other McFarlane dorks (like me) are hoping for this pose

They'd be cooler if two thirds weren't re-paints.

He actually folds back mid-torso giving you a convenient place to store your holy water.

Custom I made few weeks back. Not my best work, but I'm cool how it looks.

Just got the Tebow jersey for my son's 2nd birthday. 2T.

Awesome looking! I guess giving him a Tebow McFarlane to tear up is next!

Mcfarlane makes few Broncos. Guess theres little money in it for him. He did make a 2 Elways, a Eddie Mac and Big Shay. But as for the last 7 years Plummer & Cutler and Bailey are it. He had planned to make a Marshall, but cancelled that after the drama last summer.

So more than a few fans have made players that McFarlane has ignored over the years TD's, Rod Smith, Atwater, Little, Grads. to fill their cases.

Many people sell customs on ebay.

I just like to be creative and make customs for myself, plus it's cheaper...


My Moreno is still my best custom so far.

I don't really understand why they are mostly repaints.

I don't have much experience with 3d printing but I know they've made a lot of strides in that area.

Assuming it's up to par you'd figure they would just hire a few guys to set up some base meshes in a 3d program and rig them so you can repose them. Hell one guy could do it but it would take a little while. After that all you'd need is a detail pass in zbrush and you've got yourself a new model. The detail level isn't that high on them. An experienced sculptor/modeler could crank out one or two a week.

Why pay full price when you can re-paint an old Steve Young at a fraction of the cost and charge full price? The profit margin must be awesome.

At least the Young copy more closely resembles Tebow. They're both larger, more athletic lefties.

A few years ago McFarlane starting cutting costs and went repaint crazy. Then he started giving players a typical face-mask, his thinking was facemask's are universal and the fans would not care.

It's all about profit...the american way.

For the collectors out there, here's the the info. The Orange jersey is the "Chase" hard to find figure. The regular Tebow will be in blue jersey.

"Good character" pose, signing his contract in street clothes a day before rookie camp opens.
