Two Football Figures to be Offered at Event
Friday, October 10, 2003

Not even halfway through the current National Football League season and we're already talking about the Super Bowl? Yep, it pays to plan ahead for one of the year's biggest sporting events.

Last year, McFarlane Toys attended Super Bowl XXXVII in San Diego and offered two exclusive football action figures -- Junior Seau and LaDainian Tomlinson -- for sale. Response was immediate and chaotic.

And we can't wait for the next one!

This year, Super Bowl XXXVIII will be in Houston. Like last year, McFarlane Toys will be at the Topps Super Bowl XXXVIII Card Show at the NFL Experience at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, from Thursday Jan. 29 to Sunday Feb. 1, 2004. Hours are: Thursday 1/29, 3 p.m. -- 10 p.m.; Friday 1/30, 3 p.m. -- 10 p.m.; Saturday 1/31, 10 a.m. -- 10 p.m.; and Sunday 2/1, 10 a.m. -- 4 p.m. The NFL Experience is an interactive theme park offering games, displays and entertainment attractions. There will also be many NFL players signing autographs.

McFarlane Toys will again be selling exclusive action figures, which have become a major draw for fans attending the Card Show. The figures are:

George will be in the powder blue retro Oilers uniform; Carr will be in a special Texans red third jersey.

That's all we have for this week. As more information becomes available (figure price, quantities, booth numbers, photos, etc.) we'll share it here. Hope to see you in Houston.
