Not exactly the greatest pose, but still looks pretty good.

I always try to imagine which picture he used as the motivation for the piece...

The only one I can think of for this was the HR he hit against Mariano Rivera at USCF last season...

I was hoping they'd use his "arm in the air" pose as he was running to 1st base after the WS grand slam.

That would have been sweet.

But major Paulie fan that I am, I think I'll pass nevertheless. IMO, it really doesn't look much like him.

I thought the same thing until I checked out Berkman's figure (http://www.spawn.com/toys/product.aspx?product=1769).

What a horrible pose for Konerko.

Here is the story about the figure. The Konerko is a repaint of a vlad guerrero pose they used a couple years ago in a Sleeveless Angels jersey. If you look closely at the figure you can see the cut on the shoulders where the sleeveless part of the jersey comes in. Well, a few weeks after McFarlane deciede to use the sleeveless White Sox home jerseys the Sox went and made public they will not be wearing these jerseys anymore. So Mcfarlane just goes and paints the whole uniform in pinstripes, leaving the sleeveless cuts to see if you look closely. Im glad he got a figure though.

When did this happen? I loved those jerseys. I don't care what it really looks like though because i am a huge McFarlane collector of all the Chicago teams (I have almost every figure and the variants to go along with them) so i will be picking up this one as well

There was never any sort of official announcement, but a document file of all the mlb uniform changes for next year leaked, and the fact that we were dropping that uniform was on the list.

It would have to be because I never remember that being sold at all....do you have pics?

EDIT: I searched the net and the only JD action figure there is, is a starting lineup one from the mid 90's when he played for the Royals...it was his rookie season...
