POP CULTURE MASTERWORKS ANNOUNCEMENTS AND PHOTOGRAPHY
New Licenses, Photography and a Contest
Friday, March 24, 2006
With Pop Culture Masterworks, McFarlane Toys is bringing stunning three-dimensional realism to some of the most recognized images in music and film.
Taking highly recognizable film posters and classic rock 'n' roll album covers and sculpting them three-dimensionally is a challenge worthy of McFarlane. Using both traditional sculpting methods and forced perspective, the results are both visually stunning and unique - an entirely new format for collectors.
Now, McFarlane Toys is excited to announce some exciting new licenses that have been added to our steadily growing catalog of imagery. Here is a list of all of the brand-new licenses we have obtained for this category. Release dates are provided when available; all other release dates will be announced when information becomes available.

The iconic imagery of the album's cover and its status among the band's legion of fans as one of their best offerings made "Master of Puppets" an obvious choice to get the 3-D treatment.
