McFARLANE TOYS TO OPEN NEW ARIZONA SHOWROOM
Gala Grand-Opening Event Set for Oct. 16 in Tempe
Friday, July 23, 2004

The secret is officially out. The McFarlane Companies have been in the planning and building stages of a new Arizona-based showroom for nearly two years. Well, the process is complete and it's time to throw open the doors.

The showroom will serve various functions: a retail operation, a museum of sorts and an ever-evolving centerpiece of our operation. It also houses a gallery area that will be periodically updated.

Walking through the front door is like entering another world. Plasma TVs show McFarlane-related materials on the walls. You're surrounded by custom-built sets showcasing the two-up prototypes of our latest figures, including sports, Spawn, horror, music and film figures, and more. The walls are decorated with memorabilia including some of Todd's personal collection. There will be a retail operation and kiosks where collectors can purchase both newly released and older items still in warehouse inventory.

The grand-opening event for the showroom is slated for Saturday, Oct. 16 and is sure to be a fun-filled day complete with signings and other special happenings. In the meantime, the doors will actually open for the first time on Monday, July 26. The d├ęcor is fully in place and we have several different Spawn, horror and sports-related lines (most current retail releases) available for sale.

The new McFarlane Showroom is located at 8945 S. Harl, Suite 112, Tempe, AZ 85284, just one block east of the I-10 freeway. Tentative hours of operation are Monday through Friday, 10am to 5pm. We'll have more specific information on the grand-opening event as we get closer to October.
