McFarlane Toys: A Look at a Few of Our Recent FavoritesJanuary 22, 2014
Over the last two decades, McFarlane Toys has earned a solid reputation among fans for producing highly detailed and masterfully crafted action figures and collectibles. Helmed by legendary comic book artist (and Spawn creator), Todd McFarlane, the company has amassed a robust portfolio of licensed collectibles with a broad appeal among pop culture, comic book, and video game enthusiasts.
Last years offerings from McFarlane Toys were especially craveable. In addition to the striking variety of figures based on The Walking Dead and Halo franchises that shipped, the company established itself as the de facto purveyor of premium merchandise based on Ubisofts Assassin’s Creed video game series. The Fall 2013 release of Assassins Creed IV: Black Flag was particularly well served with a wide assortment of collectibles including an all-new line of 6 action figures, wearable bladed gauntlet replicas and a limited edition run of stunning, hand-painted 14 resin statues based the games lead assassin, Edward Kenway. Other than the limited edition 18″ PureArts statue that shipped with the “Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag Collector’s Edition” SKU, McFarlane Toys exhibited a veritable lock on the venerable Ubisoft franchise.
Well be featuring more collectibles from the House of Spawn soon, but in the interim check out a few of our recent favorites below.
