IT’S COMIC-CON INTERNATIONAL TIME AGAIN
Come See Us at Premiere Comics Convention
Monday, July 07, 2003
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.
