Showing Off The Beatles Swag-Yellow Submarine Figures Series 1

Today, I wanted to show off my collection of Beatles McFarlanes. What better place to start then the very first set that McFarlane released-The Yellow Submarine figures.

Back in 1999, McFarlane Toys comemerated the 30th anniversery of the release of Yellow Submarine with a set of figures. These figures are georgous and look great in any Beatles collection. If you can find them, I highly recomend that you do.

First up is George with the Yellow Submarine. It's all in the mind, you know.

Next is Paul with The Glove and a Love base. There is also a Paul that was paired with Old Fred, which is the chase of the set.

Ok, maybe I should have kept the flash on the camera off. Oh well, here's John with Jeremy. At both John and Jeremy's feet are holes.

Finally, here's Ringo with a Blue Meanie. Yes, he was in this cartoon before he became a wrestler.

A couple of things. One, some of these figures are really hard to stand. I'm going to have to figure out how to display them once I finally get to put up a Beatles display. Two, I would have paired the figures differently. I would have put Ringo with Jeremy, John with the Blue Meanie, George with the Glove and Paul with the Yellow Submarine. I just may do this once I display them. I mean, it was Ringo who said "I have a hole in me pocket" in the movie, not John.

Again, I love these figures. McFarlane did a fantastic job with the sculpts. They look like they jumped out of the movie. I'm really pleased I own these, as well as Series 2, which I will show off in my next post.


  1. Great stuff! I'm surprised they didn't come with stands.

    1. That would have been a great idea. McFarlane kinda dropped the ball on that one. The figures could have each came with a stand that when put together, spelled Yellow Submarine or Beatles.

  2. Great sets to own. I have them too.

    1. They are beautiful figures. I would have loved to have seen McFarlane work out an agreement with Apple and maybe produced A Hard Days Night or Help sets.

      I missed out on the Saturday Morning Cartoon set and will have to pay through the nose to land a set. My fault for not picking them up when I should have.
