Troy Polamalu — and his hair — returns to McFarlanes by Chris Olds

Pittsburgh Steelers DB Troy Polamalu — and his hair — returns to McFarlane Toys’ 21st series of SportsPicks, the company’s popular 6-inch vinyl action figures.

It’s not Polamalu’s first figure — but perhaps this one showcases his famous mane the best. He previously appeared in Series 14 and in a Super Bowl XL two-pack, while a Steelers two-pack of Polamalu with Hines Ward is set to arrive in August.

His latest figure is scheduled to arrive in October with that series also including debut figures for six players. A sneak peek with freshly released images is below.

Click for a closer look or visit spawn.com for additional images. The series also includes:

Peyton Manning, Colts

Jason Witten, Cowboys

Aaron Rodgers, Packers

Jay Cutler, Bears

Thomas Jones, Jets (with a New York Titans chase figure)

Drew Brees, Saints

Joe Flacco, Ravens

The Cutler figure is also one of his first items showing him with his new team, while the Manning is the fourth release for the star QB — not including his forthcoming collegiate figure.

Chris Olds has collected sports cards and memorabilia since 1987. Before coming to Beckett Media, he wrote about the hobby for the Orlando Sentinel on his blog, SportsStuff, and for the San Antonio Express-News and The Tuscaloosa (Ala.) News.
