TIMES SQUARE 'LOST' SIGNING EVENT DRAWS RECORD CROWD
McFarlane's 'LOST' Action Figures Make Their Debut in the Big Apple
Friday, November 10, 2006
On Monday, Nov. 6, Todd McFarlane, LOST star Jorge "Hurley" Garcia and executive producer Bryan Burk signed autographs for more than two hours at the Toys 'R' Us International flagship store in Times Square.
The signing was coordinated with the launch of McFarlane Toys' LOST action figure line.
For Todd, the morning began with a 7:30 interview with a Philadelphia radio station, followed by a NYC media tour with stops with DIME magazine, FUSE, ESPN, XM Satellite Radio and MTV.
After MTV, Todd walked across Times Square to Toys 'R' Us for more interviews and a photo session with more than 40 photographers and media outlets present.
At 3pm, the signing event began, and fans who waited in line were able to have their LOST action figures signed by Todd, Jorge and Bryan.
When the signing ended at 5pm, Todd had barely enough time to scarf down a sandwich before being escorted to Sirius Satellite Radio for an hour-long interview with long-time friend Scott Ferrall on Howard 101. After the interview, Todd was given a tour of Howard Stern's private studio. Needless to say, many "interesting" items were on display in the impressive studio.
The signing was without a doubt an overwhelming success and many thanks are passed along to all the individuals that made this event a huge hit!
