SEVERAL NEW EXCLUSIVES ADDED TO UPCOMING TOYS

Also Note New Schedule For Upcoming Releases

August 30, 2000

McFarlane Toys has several exclusive figures coming out this year, based on characters previously released. As an aside, the term "fish tank" is growing among collectors and is a euphemism for our eight-sided display cases.






DANGER GIRL FISH TANK





A re-release of the exclusive and wildly popular Danger Girls figures, based on the characters from J. Scott Campbell's comic book series. Originally released in 1999 by McFarlane Toys, these three voluptuous-but-deadly ladies have a brand-new sculpted base and will be available in a collector's fish tank.



Abbey Chase is 6 3/8 inches tall with eight points of articulation and a pistol.

Sydney Savage is 6 9/16 inches tall with eight points of articulation and a whip.

Natalia Kassle is 6 5/8 inches tall with 10 points of articulation, three knives and a real fishnet shirt.



This new Danger Girl trio is exclusive to the following retailers: Virgin Entertainment, Diamond Comics, Musicland, Fandom and TNC Universe, with several other retailers pending. Look for these dangerous ladies in early November.



THE CROW FISH TANK




The Crow, creator James O'Barr's revenge-seeking gothic hero from comic books, novels and film, was one of the most popular characters in the second line of Movie Maniacs action figures from McFarlane Toys. Now he's being re-released with an entirely new diorama and packaged in a collector's fish tank. The Crow is 6 3/4 inches tall with seven points of articulation and comes with a companion crow that perches on his shoulder and a guitar.



This new Crow figure is exclusive to the following retailers: Tower Records, Virgin Entertainment, Diamond Comics, Musicland, Fandom and TNC Universe, with several other retailers pending. Look for him in early November.



12-INCH MANDARIN SPAWN




One of the most beautiful, incredibly detailed and painted figures ever released by McFarlane Toys is getting a new look. Mandarin Spawn, winner of ToyFare magazine's Best Paint Application award, is now available as a Toys R Us exclusive. The new figure, originally released in Spawn Series 14: The Dark Ages 2, is now 12 inches tall with a new teal blue and burnt orange paint scheme. It has eight articulation points and comes with an arm-mounted shield, a 19-inch two-piece sword and two other hip-mounted swords. Only available at Toys R Us in October.



12-INCH CROW




Another massive Crow figure will be flying into Toys R Us, looking for vengeance. That's right, McFarlane Toys' popular Crow figures from the Movie Maniacs 2line has been redesigned at a massive 12 inches tall. The avenging angel has seven points of articulation, and comes with a guitar and a companion crow perched on his shoulder. This new 12-inch Crow is exclusive for Toys R Us and is only available there in October.
