McFarlane Toys to release a Hines Ward Gotham Rogues figure from The Dark Knight Rises

See the figure after the jump.

McFarlane Toys will release a figure this November of retired Pittsburgh Steeler wide receiver Hines Ward in a Gotham Rogues uniform. Ward, along with several other current Steeler players, will make cameos in The Dark Knight Rises. Ward was seen in the first trailer for The Dark Knight Rises as he ran towards the endzone as the field behind him crumbled.

From the USA Today article:

"They haven't told me whether when Hines does his spike and touchdown dance he falls into the pit. But at least on the trailer he's looking pretty good," McFarlane says with a laugh.

"If he dies in the movie, then you will have in your hand the last moment of him in his celluloid cameo appearance. This could be your Citizen Kane right here depending on how it goes down."

Ward played fourteen seasons with the Steelers before retiring this spring. He is a four time Pro Bowler, two time Super Bowl champion, Super Bowl XL MVP, and the all-time Steeler's record-holder for receptions, receiving yards, and receiving touchdowns. Ward also won ABC's Dancing With The Stars in 2011.
