SAN DIEGO COMIC-CON 2006 UPDATE
Preview Night Photography, a Todd McFarlane Appearance and Much More
Thursday, July 20, 2006
We here at McFarlane Toys are so excited about our presence at this year's San Diego Comic Convention, we decided to share an inside look into our booth for the fans that aren't able to attend. Although our booth (#2601) is but a small shining star in comparison to the galaxy of the convention, we have too many things on display to be selfish. So take a gander at some of the photos we took from the convention floor.
>> SDCC '06: SPAWN SERIES 30 (10 photos)
>> SDCC '06: LOST SERIES 1 (16 photos)
>> SDCC '06: HANNA-BARBERA SERIES 2 and THE SIMPSONS (9 photos)
The Con is the first place you can see two-ups of both our much-anticipated Spawn 30 and Lost lineups. But, don't get us wrong; there is more than just our awe-inspiring product prototypes going on this weekend. Along with the giveaways at the booth, signings and Todd's panel on Saturday, we have a little something for all of our online fans from our own Editor-in-Chief, Brian Haberlin and Haberlin Studios as a teaser for their Digital Art Tutorial disks that features none other than our favorite Hell-born hero.

As if that weren't enough, we are also making available, for the first time ever, a digital version of our San Diego Comic-Con 2006 handout, with 16 pages of new and exciting information about the McFarlane Companies and the numerous projects we are working on.

If Preview Night is anything but a warm-up for this year's convention, we already know it is going to be a blast. We hope to see you, so stop by booth #2601. And if you missed it, our schedule of events for this year's Con can be found here.
And if you are unable to attend, hopefully this update will give you a good enough taste to convince you to come out next year.
