Head-on Collision Coming Monday, Feb. 11

February 8, 2002

That's right, friends and neighbors, the time's drawing close.'s annual Toy Fair coverage is picking up a head of steam and bearing down on your computer screen.

    Better hope your Net connection stays strong.

    The gang is working feverishly to get everything designed. Monday, Feb. 11 will be the day; 9 a.m. EST will be the time. Your mission? Come to where you'll learn the facts about McFarlane Toys' upcoming figures for the remainder of 2002. No more rumors. No more conjecture. Just cold hard facts about what's coming out this year. Oh, yeah, we'll include photos and descriptions of all the upcoming figures in our online catalog.

    We're also offering an online tour of the McFarlane Toys Manhattan showroom for your viewing pleasure, as well as a voting area so we can get your feedback on our products. There will also be news updates live from Toy Fair. We decided not to do a dedicated Toy Fair message board this year, but everyone is, as always, invited to our normal message boards to discuss the goings-on
    To celebrate the event, is having a "Five Days of Toy Fair" contest to give away some goodies and figures originally shown at Toy Fair 2001. Here are the days and prizes:
