FANS LINE UP FOR MCFARLANE'S GUITAR HERO COMPETITION
On Tuesday, Oct. 21, McFarlane Toys held their first Guitar Hero competition at Westgate City Center in Glendale, Ariz.
The competition was in conjunction with the release of McFarlane's Guitar Hero action figures, which have already hit Toys 'R' Us stores, and will soon be available at other retail outlets across the country.
Thousands of fans came out for the Metallica concert that evening, with many eyes turning to the McFarlane tent near the entrance of Jobing.com Arena.
Fans signed up and battled a friend (or foe!) in a game of Guitar Hero on the giant screen next to the arena. Even our friends from Arizona rock radio station KUPD came over and checked out the scene.
This was a great opportunity to talk with Guitar Hero fanatics and introduce them to our toys. It was also a chance for us to speak with longtime fans of our figures and to hear what they like and what we could improve on.
Thanks for coming out, and we hope to do a lot more of these…maybe even in YOUR hometown (hint, hint)!
A special thank you goes out to our partners at Activision and Red Octane for sending out all the cool giveaway items.
