Todd McFarlane Interview at New York Toy Fair 2020

by Jay Cochran
February 28, 2020
ShartimusPrime talked with Todd McFarlane at this past weekend's New York Toy Fair about DC Multiverse and more.

For key points in the interview, Todd talks about how the next wave of Deluxe DC Multiverse figures where they will be going back to the classic Build-A-Figure model as opposed to the Batmobile's. If you caught my interview with Todd back in January, you know the original plan was to do a whole series of different Batmobiles. That now seems to have changed. You will need to get 4 figures to complete the Build-A-Figure, though he doesn't reveal what the actual Build-A-Figure will be. It's unclear if he is still planning on releasing larger scale figures in single packaging, like he indicated back in January. When I personally talked to the McFarlane people off-camera this past weekend, they did indicated that was still on the table, but I think we will have to wait and see what they actually do.

Going back to the the first Build-A-Figure they plan on doing, Todd says it will be BIG, really big. He also goes on to indicate the articulation might be more limited, as big characters often don't need to be as poseable as characters like Batman.

Check out the full interview here and check out images for all the product they had on display in their showroom below in our GALLERY.

I'm not sure about these mcfarlane dc figures. I got the superman figure and it's alright looks ok. The other figures tho dont look all that great from what I've seen. Still haven't seen the hellbat in hand yet tho. Not super happy with the scale either. I guess I'll display the ones I do pick up with my my hero academia figures

There've been a lot of apologists and fanboys out there but I think people are catching on.....just because its got McFarlane's name, doesn't mean its a good product. I'll just say it- he flat dropped the ball on the Batman and Superman figures. I don't know if its because they figured its his name so fans will buy, or because its Batman/Superman and they're so well known, of COURSE they'll buy. But its not working. They have wonky articulation, awful looking torso/ab crunch designs, shrunken heads and don't get me started on the inability to pose the heads looking up. This is just not acceptable, given what we see on the Fortnite figures, Marvel Legends, etc. There are a number of kickstarter projects that have a better product than this McFarlane mess. The Hellbat and Superman armored figures are better, and all the figures I've seen thus far have really nice paint jobs, but that's about it.

So no Harry Potter or Game of Thrones even though those licenses were picked up not that long ago? Is that a sigh that the license expired, that those lines didnt sell, or that they were only ever meant to be a quick couple of figures and done.

Admittedly I wasnt buying these figures either so Im not personally heart broken over this. I just find it interesting.

They are working on more Harry Potter, just not showing anything new. GOT not sure. Back in Jan they indicated they still had more stuff coming but I did not specifically ask at Toy Fair. Harry Potter I did.

All I know is that I need all things Spawn

Hopefully the DOOM line is popular enough to warrant figures of the '93 game, I'd love a Doomguy and a Baron with a couple of Imps too. Sucks that GW is still trying to shove Primaris marines down everyone's throats because a normal marine would be an instant buy, especially the unpainted marine figure. I'd kill for a Dark Angels Space Marine....

Azrael and Spawn are definitely the stand outs from this showing. Now I'm reading that McFarlane wants to do a kickstarter crowdfunding thing for a Spawn line.

Oh yeah! That Spawn looks sick, definitely a must.

Excited for the White Knight figs, didn't think we'd get anything like that so soon. The Arkham figures look iffy.
