McFARLANE: INTERNATIONAL MAN OF MYSTERY

Staffers Spend a Week in our Hong Kong Facilities

April 19, 2002

As reported earlier on our message boards at spawn.com, Todd McFarlane and several McFarlane staffers (chief operating officer Larry Marder, executive director of manufacturing and logistics Sheri Halvorson and board moderator Drew Hutchinson) are currently visiting our production facilities in Hong Kong.

    The group is there for several reasons, not the least of which is to document the entire McFarlane Toys production process for our fans. The group will be reporting in via e-mail and phone. As soon as the photos and information start flowing, we'll open a new mini-feature in our Features section at spawn.com to document it. We're expecting to get some interesting digital video from the tours that we'll post as well.

    Ultimately, we'll assemble much of the footage and photography and combine it with resources from our New Jersey office to build a complete A to Z index of how a McFarlane Toys action figure comes to life, from initial sketch to final production piece.

    Stay tuned for that and ongoing updates from Asia.
