How to Sell Your McFarlane Action Figures at Sell Your Toys Now
When it comes to detail in action figures, McFarlane Toys are very high up in the game. The company’s accuracy in portraying beloved characters from comics, films, video games, and even celebrities, such as singers, sportsmen, and military, has managed to keep toy collector enthusiasts happy for almost 3 decades now.
What you might not know is that the reason why McFarlane Toys are considered so precise aesthetically is because McFarlane founder Todd McFarlane is a comic-book creator. One of McFarlane’s most notorious works in comics is The Amazing-Spider-Man, where he worked as an artist. McFarlane is also credited as the artist, writer, and creator of the comic book series Spawn.
Having worked in DC Comics and Marvel, McFarlane had a very specific vision of the look of superheroes. So much so that in 1994 when McFarlane was working with Mattel producing action figures based on his comic book characters, they couldn’t settle on the products because they did not meet McFarlane’s vision of his characters. This is when McFarlane decided to create his own toy company, McFarlane Toys.
The first toys created by McFarlane’s company were, of course, Spawn action figures. The 1994 line consisted of six figures. The toys immediately gained recognition because they were different from other toys at the time because of their high level of detail in painting and sculpting.
But McFarlane’s creations are not limited to Spawn. McFarlane is now a very important company in the toy industry that has created toys based of lots of pop-culture franchises such as The Simpsons, Star Trek, Stranger Things, Lost, The Walking Dead, Metal Gear Solid, Avatar, Akira, Naruto, Attack on Titan, and many toys based on real life personalities such as The Beatles, Kiss, Elvis Presley, Rob Zombie, and Slash, to name a few.
Todd McFarlane has incorporated many of his personal passions and interests into his toys, such as his passion for the horror genre. In 1997, McFarlane Toys produced the “Todd McFarlane’s Monsters Playsets.” This line included popular characters from horror stories and legends such as Dracula, Frankenstein, Quasimodo, and a Werewolf. The line was so loved among horror fans and Toy Collectors, not only because of the look of the characters, but also because of the unique gruesome accessories that came with each set. Since then, McFarlane has created other McFarlane Monsters Playsets and has produced licensed horror characters such as Michael Myers, Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhees, Leatherface and The Thing.
Another one of Todd McFarlane’s interests, which he has incorporated into his toys is sports. The company has official licensing rights to the major professional leagues of all five major North American sports and began this line, officially known as McFarlane Sports Picks, in 2001.
McFarlane Toy company is as broad as it is unique; we believe that this is thanks to Todd McFarlane and Team passion for toys which has helped the brand define its personality in the Toy Universe.
