McFarlane All Over the Mediawaves for Your Viewing Pleasure
Friday, October 15, 2004

With the Grand Opening of the McFarlane Toys Store and Showroom set for this Saturday, Oct. 16, our very own Todd McFarlane has made numerous TV, radio, newspaper and magazine appearances. You can't get away from the man!

McFarlane's hectic media schedule kicked off Wednesday with an appearance on Fox Sports Net's Friday Night Tailgate with Kevin McCabe. Viewers from around the country with satellite can catch the show Friday, Oct. 15 on Fox Sports Arizona. Additionally, Todd spoke with Bob Beard on The Zone, KZON here in Phoenix Wednesday evening.

On Thursday, we welcomed TV 3's Good Morning Arizona show. The crew arrived at 4 a.m. and set up for the 5-9 a.m. broadcast. McFarlane joined Brad Perry and Gibby Parra and gave a detailed tour of the store and some inside tips to what's coming from McFarlane Toys.

After the crew left, the Arizona Republic newspaper stopped by to do a feature on Todd and the showroom. The article can be found on

Friday was very similar to Thursday, as KPNX 12, the local NBC affiliate, arrived at 4:30 a.m. to set up for the broadcast that ran from 5-7 a.m. As soon as the TV show finished up, it was off to KDKB in Mesa to talk with Tim.

Once we returned, McFarlane headed over to a media luncheon at the store. It provided an opportunity to meet and greet many members of the media and conduct one-on-one interviews.

Out-of-state fans who are coming to the Grand Opening on America West Airlines may notice a piece that is running in the current issue of the in-flight magazine on McFarlane and what he loves about living in the desert.

As the day finally came to a close, one thing is for sure, we're very excited about the Grand Opening and look forward to meeting all the fans who are planning to stop by.
