SPAWN STORE PRESELL PROGRAM COMING
New Ecommerce Site to Go Live on Spawn.com Soon
Friday, April 16, 2004

In the coming weeks, a new ecommerce shopping site is set to go live on spawn.com. This new area -- a separate entity from our current Collector's Club online store -- will offer presales of most upcoming McFarlane Toys action figures.

Though their interfaces will be similar, the current Store at spawn.com and the new presale store don't interact. Thus, all preselling will be done through the new site while the current Store will continue to offer Club exclusives, warehouse finds and other items. Users will not be able to shop between both stores (i.e., buy presale and current items on one shopping cart).

Presales for any individual series will only be available for a short time -- generally no longer than a week. Depending on the upcoming schedule, we'll try to provide as many different presale options as possible to save customers on shipping costs.

Preselling will begin -- depending again on the schedule -- about three months prior to a particular line's due date. Customers will be charged for the product and shipping when their order is placed and the items will ship as soon as they arrive. More details will be available in the new ecommerce site when it goes live.

The new presale server at spawn.com is intended as simply another option for consumers who may have a problem finding our products otherwise. Stay tuned to spawn.com for more details as they become available.
