I sat on the fence for the longest time in making this decision. I've been collecting Reds bobbleheads for years now, but I wasn't quite sure if I wanted to venture out and chase retail figures. After going back and forth on this for well over a year I decided I would go after these McFarlane figures, but only those produced depicting members of the Big Red Machine. This would limit me on just two figures (Johnny Bench and Joe Morgan). A few weeks back I was able to grab this opened Johnny Bench on eBay for more than half of what I would pay if it were still in the packaging. It's very detailed compared to the Kenner Starting Lineup figures and the poses are great. Johnny leaning over a rail to catch a foul ball is great! I do have plans of acquiring the Joe Morgan figure sometime in 2015 (just in time for the 40 anniversary of the 1975 World Series Championship).
