NHL ALL-STAR A BIG HIT
Modano Exclusive Sells Out in Dallas
Friday, January 26, 2007
McFarlane Toys arrived in Dallas this past Friday and staked their claim in the NorthPark Mall, setting up in preparation for the NHL All-Star Trading Card and Memorabilia Show. We started selling our Mike Modano exclusive figure on Saturday at 10 AM, and as usual, the line for our figure stretched out of sight. 2,600 of the 3,000 Modano figures were sold on Saturday. Hundreds of Spawn and Sports Picks fans went by the autograph pavilion and got to meet the boss himself - Todd had two scheduled signings at 3pm and 7pm, but he stayed the entire time. Todd signed toys, drew sketches, autographed comic books, and spent time with fans until the close of the show at 9pm.
On Sunday, we opened at noon with just 400 or so Modano Exclusives left. The last one sold at 1:30pm, with fans purchasing the two opened display figures minutes later. Todd came by a little later, once again meeting fans and signing autographs in the pavilion.
McFarlane Toys would like to thank the NHL, the NHLPA, the NorthPark Mall staff and the people of Dallas for making our first NHL All-Star show a tremendous success.
