A Few Good Men
You can never have too many men, so I decided to add a few more. They are all former NBA basketball players. So the ladies won't have any problems with height.
First up is Shaquille (Shaq) O'Neal. These figures are made by a company called Starting Lineup.
They did a really good job capturing a young Shaq. I met the real Shaq in person a few months ago. He's pretty down to earth and really funny.
These figures have decent movement, although they aren't completely articulated. The arms and legs are bendable at the joints, and the wrists are articulated.
Next up is Grant Hill.
They did a decent job on his likeness, but I don't know why they started his hairline so far back. I may have to fix that.
My third and final basketball player is Allen Iverson.
This doesn't look anything like Allen Iverson. That's okay. He's a little cutie pie, despite the open mouth.
Here is a picture of the first basketball player I bought, Juwan Howard. This will give you an idea of size comparison.
So an upcoming story will feature these four players doing an exhibition game, with Michael Jordan as their coach.
