Ok new batch of pics from MINDstyle arrived in my inbox overnight including this beauty of the Jordan figure. I've not seen a big pic of this anywhere else yet so thought i'd get there first :P

This Mindstyle variant of the Lau figure is post 6 rings era Jordan when the old man, complete with 'tasche, came out of retirement to play for the Washington Wizards (nice adaptation of the Wizards logo for the 'M' in MINDstyle). Awesome figure and I love it - the white version is spot on, but the blue on the away strip's a bit more Knicks looking than the turquoise of the Wizards. Nice sneakers tho ;)

It's just great to see a variant of a figure be more than just a colour swap, the change of kit takes the figure to another era and keeps it desirable. Would have been even cooler if the Bulls version didn't have the 'tasche and it had been added on this one to indicate his age. Anyway, I want one!
