McFarlane Toys to Attend the National and FanFest Events
Friday, March 18, 2005

July is going to be a big month for collectors around the country as McFarlane Toys will attend two separate sports events featuring exclusive figures: MLB FanFest in Detroit and the National in Chicago.

Major League FanFest is up first, taking place Friday, July 8 through Tuesday, July 12 at the COBO Conference/Exhibition Center, 1 Washington Blvd, Detroit, MI.

We will be offering two Detroit Tigers exclusive figures for sale during FanFest: superstar catcher Ivan Rodriguez, No. 7 and new Tigers pitcher Troy Percival, No. 40. Pudge will be in his home white jersey and Percival in his gray road uniform.

Following FanFest, the McFarlane Toys road gang returns to The National Sports Collector's Convention. This year, the 26th annual convention is in Chicago, at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center from Wednesday, July 27 through Sunday, July 31.

We'll have an exclusive National action figure for sale: Nomar Garciaparra, Chicago Cubs SS, No. 5. This limited-edition McFarlane's Sports Picks Major League Baseball action figure features Nomar in his Cubs alternate road blue jersey.

Look for images of these figures in the weeks to come.

Pricing has not been established for these figures yet, but our previous events have offered exclusive figures at $15 each or $25 for the pair. We'll look forward to seeing our fans in Detroit and Chicago later this summer! Stay tuned to for more details -- booth numbers, times, purchase limits, etc. -- as soon as they're available.
