Legendary comic artist and toy creator Todd McFarlane’s toy company is about to bless the DC Universe with some awesome new action figures.
The Arizona-based company is known for creating high-quality toys based on popular comic, movie, TV, and pop culture icons. It also makes the coolest-looking sports figures on the market.
McFarlane rose to prominence as the creator of Spawn, one of the first titles released by the artist-owned Image publisher. He also branched into pop culture through Korn music videos, buying Mark McGwire’s record-breaking home run balls, and creating one of the most successful independent art companies in the world.
This new partnership is sure to give us some classic figurines for both hardcore fans and mainstream bandwagoners alike.
Here’s the full press release:
Tempe, Ariz., – February 12, 2019, 2019 – Batman, Superman and the entire roster of DC’s iconic characters have a new place to hang up their capes and cowls.
