Todd McFarlane Brings News, Advice, and a Lot of Fun to NYCC
New Collectors Club Resin Program Announced
Wednesday, October 26, 2011
Phoenix Comicon and San Diego Comic-Con…check! It only seems right for Todd McFarlane and the McFarlane Companies to crash the “Big Apple” as well. The two-day invasion included signings for Haunt, Spawn, Blood Red Dragon, and Toys‘R’Us, along with the coolest panel at the con – McFarlane: The Devil is in the Details.
You can be sure Todd didn’t come without some super swag to give away to the McFarlane faithful. Giveaways at the McFarlane section of the Image Booth included Spawn and Haunt comics, Haunt lithos and exclusive ashcans, along with figures from The Walking Dead comic series 1, Halo: Anniversary series 1, Halo: Reach series 5, and of course, sports! Todd also showcased some of the new t-shirt designs from the upcoming Spawn line by Famous Stars & Straps, available this spring.
The biggest announcement came during Todd’s panel discussion, when he revealed the launch of a new Collectors Club resin program. This program will bring fans arguably some of McFarlane’s coolest statues ever and feature franchise properties with worldwide name recognition including Spawn, Haunt and The Walking Dead comics, along with star players from the NFL, MLB, NHL and NBA. The program will kick off with a Spawn: The Beginning statue (either signed or unsigned) during the holidays, followed by a Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning Prismere Troll and Haunt statue in spring 2012.
Now let’s take a glance at Todd’s experience at this year’s NYCC and the cool people he met up with along the way.
