Way back in 1988 Kenner debuted a new line of toys – Starting Lineup. The line featured the biggest stars from the major sports leagues. They featured player likeness and stood approximately four inches tall. Hasbro bought the license in 1991 and discontinued it in 2001.
Twenty years later, it’s back.
And better than ever.
Today it returns with eight NBA superstars leading the way. So check out the 2022 Hasbro NBA Starting Lineup action figures.
As you can see, we’ve made some huge leaps since 2001.
LeBron James, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Luka Doncic, Joel Embiid, Ja Morant, Trae Young, Steph Curry and Jayson Tatum are all included in the line, with each scaling with one another.
The Hasbro Starting Lineup figures come with six different hands, a display base, a flight stand, an exclusive Panini trading card and a link to a Panini NFT trading card.
