When you need to pick up the tough yards in the fourth quarter to keep the drive alive and the clock moving, you give it to your star running back, LaDainian Tomlinson. Upper Deck knows this too, which is why the company is breaking the
huddle with the latest league MVP as the next player to be replicated in action figure form as part of its All-Star Vinyl line.  Upper Deck will release an All-Star Vinyl action figure of the San Diego Chargers perennial Pro Bowler on Friday, November 23 (9:25 AM PST) to Platinum Club members and to the general public on Monday, November 26 (9:25 AM
PST).

Tomlinson’s vinyl figures will be available to collectors and fans alike in a white and blue trimmed home uniform version (numbered to 500), the fan favorite powder blue version (numbered to 1,000), an alternate dark blue road uniform version (numbered to 500) and of course, a coveted black edition (numbered to 250) featuring gold team graphics on an all black figure.  The sleek all black figures have become the most highly anticipated variants of the All-Star Vinyl line of collectibles due to its unique look and limited availability.

“LT has stood head and shoulders above the competition ever since he came to San Diego from Texas Christian University,” said Upper Deck’s Dave Sanders, Brand Manager for the All-Star Vinyl Line.  “Fans will recognize Tomlinson’s intense game face stare added to his comic book stylized super hero stance.”

Tomlinson continues put the National Football League with his stellar play, especially after scoring a league record of 31 total touchdowns during the 2006 season.  “LT is the best player in the NFL and is a threat to score every time he touches the pigskin,” added Sanders.

The new figures will run for $74.99, with the exception of the Black Edition, which is $99.99.  Eager fans will be able to scoop up a dual pack featuring a black edition and a black on black version for $150.00.
