IT’S COMIC-CON INTERNATIONAL TIME AGAIN
Come See Us at Premiere Comics Convention
July 07, 2003
Copyright 2014 TMP International, Inc.

One of spawn.com’s favorite events of the year is rapidly approaching: Comic-Con International. Located as always at the San Diego Convention Center in, uh, San Diego, 2003’s event is sure to be a blast for all who attend.

We’ll be at the event starting Preview Night Wednesday, July 16 through Sunday, July 20, 2003. Our booth number is 1913. There, you’ll be subjected to our cool setup featuring loads of two-up prototypes of upcoming figures and plenty of neat stuff to check out. Plus you’ll get to bask in the warm glow of several spawn.com personalities and McFarlane employees.

Oh, and then there’s this year’s Comic-Con exclusive piece. For 2003, we’ve put together a special two-pack featuring a 4-inch-scale Spawn action figure and a 4-inch-scale replica of the upcoming Miracleman resin statue. The set is available in a special Comic-Con clamshell package and includes a rotating base with figure poster. This two-pack is extremely limited and will sell for $15. We’ll also have other products available to purchase.

In addition to the spawn.com booth, McFarlane staffers are also taking part in several Comic-Con panels. Here’s the rundown on those:

  • Plastically Incorrect, Friday, July 18, 1 to 2 p.m., Room 18.
    Presented by AFTimes.com. What happens when toy worlds collide? What would top toy experts say to each other if given the opportunity? Be a fly on the wall in this live debate. This will be an action figure/toy forum in the same format as
    "Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher." We have a panel of experts and
    Action Figure Times' Julius Marx will moderate by throwing topics into
    the ring and letting the insiders hash it out. Features spawn.com writer/editor/head of the Collector’s Club and all-around nice guy Dion Bozman.

  • What's up with all these McFarlane companies?, Friday, July 18, 2:30-3:30 p.m., Room 8
    Todd Mcfarlane's companies are involved in all aspects of popular culture. Hear the latest about all the ongoing McFarlane projects in a lively panel discussion with some of Todd's top guys. Features Terry Fitzgerald-President, Todd McFarlane Entertainment; Ed Frank-President and Chief Designer-McFarlane Design; Dion Bozman-McFarlane Toys Collector's Club honcho; John Goff-Spawn.com comics and toy board moderator. Moderated by: Larry Marder-President McFarlane Toys.

  • How to make toys the McFarlane way!, Saturday, July 19, 5:30-6:30 p.m., Room 9
    Join Ed Frank, Todd's top toy designer, in a hands-on demonstration about the artistic methods McFarlane uses to create toys. Learn inside design, sculpting and painting secrets used in the creative process at McFarlane Toys. Moderated by: Larry Marder-President, McFarlane Toys.
But, wait, even though we’re serious about the concept of event exclusives, we realize that not everyone can get to San Diego. So, we saved a single set of exclusives to give away here on spawn.com.

All you have to do is send an e-mail to comiccon@mcfarlane.com. Subject: San Diego Contest. Include your name and complete mailing address. You may enter only once and please, do the right thing and only enter if you’re not actually coming to the event. All entries must be received by noon PST July 10. The winner will be announced on spawn.com July 11. Good luck.
