    This guy is such a brilliant artist! Besides creating the KISS figures in 1997, he's gone on to recreate the likenesses of Alice Cooper, Ozzy Osbourne, and recently Janis Joplin. There's also a Jim Morrison figure due out in September. Anyone else a McFarlane admirer?

    McFarlane worked with Pearl Jam to make the kick ass video for "Do The Evolution". It really makes the song better, something most videos never do. Easily the best animated video ever made.
    There are so many different images in the video its crazy.... its all going a mile a minute. Not really familiar with anything else he did but with me being a big Pearl Jam fan I had to chime in on that one.

    I love that Pearl Jam too RAFTER! [img]smilies/cool.gif[/img]


    Anyway I am a HUGE Mcfarlane fan!!! I have most of the comics he drew, he is my favorite artist! I have every Spawn issue also, I met Greg Capullo the former Spawn artist who took over for Todd when he quit pencilling Spawn and he was really friendly. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    I wish Todd would get back to pencilling again, I have been a fan of his since I was eleven years old. I liked the Spider-man comics that he drew the most, no one has come close to drawing Spidey as good as Todd did!

    I think his Toyline that he started is great too, I have a shelf full of them on display. I also like the Spawn animated show, and the Spawn movie blew me away! I went and saw it twice in the theatre I loved it so much!! [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    YankeeRose, do you take your figures out of the packaging in order to display? Or do you just buy two of everything? They look much better this way although the value depreciates.

    In case you didn't know, McFarlane is releasing in October a Jaws Deluxe Box Set w/ the Orca Boat (it's the scene where Quint is in the shark's mouth on the stern). I'm psyched! This shit makes me feel like a kid again. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    I haven't seen the Spawn movie (need to get my ass up to Hollywood Video).

    The Pearl Jam video sounds interesting as well. Todd seems to be dabbling in a little bit of everything these days.

    I've actually met him twice at Chicago Comi-Cons. He's one helluva nice guy. It was right when Spawn #3 came out. I got Spawn #2 autographed. We moved out of the way and started talking to him and he just kept talking until this big, big black guy came and kicked us out of the line. Still cool though. Has anybody here signed the petition for him to make an Eddie figure????? I don't have the link but maybe I can find it and post it.

    Well, it was just a what if thing, but most people (fans of all era) were going for an 84 ish thing with his striped Kramer. Knowing how endorsements are, though; they'd probably go modern with his Peavey Wolfgang. I wouldn't give a shit; as long as we had a figure period!!!! I'll open another browser and go try to find the page now. There was a link at the dome, but it's obviously not there now..........
