obviously yes, he is part owner. but he definitely cant do anything he wants in regards to the licenses his company holds. and he definitely doesnt wield absolute power in the company. and he is in no way involved in the day to day operations of the company. the scale issue you mention isnt something hes involved with or even cares about.

hes currently attempting to direct a movie, still draws a monthly comic, animates for music and tv, goes to every single oilers game. has investor calls, budgets to approve, licensee calls, probably 2000 emails a day to answer and yet somehow you all believe this man is in the factory in china assembling toys or making the decision to repaint a figure as gold label. i mean seriously. its a company. same as hasbro. same as nike. same as mattel. same as neca. same as jazwares, topps, millenium, etc etc etc.

i get it, most of you are much older and are remembering 30 years ago when he started his company and did do everything himself and hustled to grow his brand, kinda like how bobby vala does now. but these days, in 2024, his company is very large, with multiple owners, multiple shareholders, and multiple offices and factories, and multiple departments, with various people in leadership roles that are making the decisions you all complain about.

i mean when ya'll #$## about hasbro no one is saying "well john does what johns gonna do" lol

We all believe Todd is working in a Chinese factory. lol. Thats news to me.

I think Todd is a little more than a figure head. He serves that role yes, but it seems to me he's got a little more control than that. Just needs someone to talk to him about scale.

I'm gonna just keep saying I wish Mattel still had the license. I did get a starfire on preorder. Hopefully I don't wind up with the platinum edition. There's definitely some.market corrections aff we xring supply after the bubble burst

mattel doesnt have the license because they saw the landscape change that was happening. it wasnt a bubble burst thats affecting supply, its that the demand is no longer there. the hobby is getting older and is now geared toward middle aged adults. and with all the boutique offerings out there these days, and with most of us having more to spend but wanting to spend correctly, the standard lines arent selling like they used to.

I believe he said the same thing about Wonder Woman and only a few more trickled out when she was released (and Amazon ended up cancelling some people's preorders of that second batch).

Best Buy had her 3 different times as well after he said that and Gamestop......still sold out quickly.

At least the Starfire Platinum Edition isn't the main universe version everyone would want.

It doesn't matter what he says. He still has to clear everything he wants to do with WB/DC just like every other toy company that makes licensed figures has to do (unless they specifically own the property outright). If he could do anything he wanted then he'd include guns with characters that are supposed to have guns. He can't because WB/DC, the licensor, says he can't. The same is true for the characters he can release. Sure, he can go all the way back when putting together an assortment, but that assortment still has to be cleared by the owners of the property.

exactly. and its not him personally doing anything. hes basically a figure head. like jeremy padawer with jazwares. they reveal stuff, they hype stuff, they say crazy things to get the internet buzzing, but they really have nothing to do with the actual creative process.

LOL he is full owner. The buck stops with him and he has no problems saying that. Your right he counts money but he also pretty much does what he wants.

https://mcfarlane.com/info/about-us/

i mean the official site confirms that he isnt the full owner, so...

i always wondered why you never reported it when you posted about the return of sportspicks, but i guess you never knew. the only way he could get the official sports licenses back was by letting imports dragon buy into his company. why do you think the nhl and mlb molds are identical to imports dragon?

No according to McFarlane, he has full control of the the catalog of DC characters he says he can do going back to 1937. But Todd does what he wants to do and what he thinks will sell and has been mentioned he has often said he doesn't think female figures sell well even though ones like Wonder Woman and Starfire sold out immediately.
