2018 Imports Dragon MLB Baseball Figures
Now in their third season as the official supplier of 6" likenesses for league stars, the 2018 Imports Dragon MLB baseball figures feature several young players and a few established veterans. There are also multiple limited-edition figures, including those that highlight greatness from 2017.
Issued in the first wave are budding standouts Andrew Benintendi, Gary Sanchez and Yoan Moncada. They are joined by legit star Nolan Arenado. Even grizzled veteran Yadier Molina gets in on the fun. Expected later in the year, Giancarlo Stanton earns his pinstripes with his first Yankees figure, rookie phenom Shohei Ohtani dominates the mound, and Cody Bellinger looks to build on his ROY season.
Honoring the 2017 Rookie of the Year winner for the American League (Aaron Judge), and National League (Cody Bellinger), special 2018 Imports Dragon MLB baseball figures come with limited production. The same applies to George Springer's World Series figure and the option for Chris Sale that notes his league-leading 308 strikeouts in 2017. The Springer figure is also part of a World Series 3-pack with 2016 releases for Altuve and Correa. As previous years had various exclusives and chase variants, additional information will be updated when available.
2018 Imports Dragon MLB baseball figures continue a growing tradition of detailed vinyl collectibles. Each standing approximately six inches tall, the figures come individually packaged.
Although a few of the releases could be considered part of the 2017 set, all those planned for 2018 are included here to help provide an accurate breakdown of the new figures.

Hopeful that 2019 MLB figures would improve.
To my disappointment they did not.
The eyes are scary. Too much white or something. Please McFarlane big to take over MLB production.
I just cannot justify buying these figures. My old Starting Lineup figures are better than Import Dragon.
