Q:

Why is the McFarlane toy I bought painted differently than what is shown on packaging and/or your website?

Your toy could be different from what is shown on the package or our website for a number of reasons. The photos used for the figures are of the original prototypes, and minor variations in sculpt, colors, and/or accessories may exist between the prototype and the finished product. Or, your figure could be what we refer to as a “chase” figure or a “variant” figure.

Q:

What is a ‘chase figure’?

A “chase” figure is most often associated with our McFarlane’s Sports Picks action figures. It is a different version of a regular figure, intentionally produced and generally released in limited numbers. Differences usually involve paint application, but could also be sculpt or accessory changes. Most commonly, a “chase” figure will have a different uniform from the “base” version shown in the photos. If the “base” version is produced wearing a home uniform, for example, then the “chase” may be produced in a road uniform — or vice versa.

Q:

What is a ‘variant figure’?

A “variant” figure is a paint or accessory difference from the “normal” version that is unintentional. Sometimes, these are production errors or glitches that occur at the factory and might be released into distribution before the mistake is caught and corrected.

Q:

How long does it take to produce an action figure?

From start to finish, it takes approximately 10 months if everything goes smoothly. This includes approval timelines for concepts, sculpts, paint masters and packaging, in addition to the manufacture real time of five months.
