About McFarlane Toys

Grammy-and Emmy-winning producer/director Todd McFarlane, best known as the creator of Spawn and the founder of SPAWN.COM, is the creative force behind McFarlane Toys. The international award-winning company is one of America's top action figure manufacturers with successful movie licensing tie-ins, including figures from the Oscar-winning animated feature film Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Were-rabbit (Dreamworks), Tim Burton's Corpse Bride (Warner Bros.), and the popular cult flick Napoleon Dynamite (Fox). Additionally, the company has acquired the action figure licenses for the Hanna-Barbera (Warner Bros.) library and ABC's hit series Lost. McFarlane Toys added a new dimension to its already expanding product line with the launch of McFarlane's Pop Culture Masterworks which re-create iconic 3-D wall hangings using both traditional sculpting and the art of forced perspective. Releases include Jaws, Friday the 13th, Alien and The Rocky Horror Picture Show. McFarlane Toys also makes official league-licensed figures for baseball, football, basketball and hockey within its Sports Picks(tm) line, as well as the Legends line in all four sports. McFarlane Toys has replicated some of rock music's greatest icons including Elvis Presley, Jimi Hendrix and Mötley Crüe. Check out www.spawn.com <http://www.spawn.com/> for more information.
