After "Pre-Sold out" figures, and some online stores having "Pre-order sold out" items, McFarlane Toys keeps pushing the envelope for the toy industry, by introducing a brand new ground-breaking concept: the "Sold out crowdfunding campaign"! ToyFarce investigated...

Earlier this week, McFarlane Toys announced that a 24" statue of Spawn and Batman would be available through a new crowdfunding campaign system called the McFarlane Toys Collector's Club Drawing Board. A gorgeous statue, which depicts the cover of the Spawn/Batman comic book from 1994.

Yesterday, the McFarlane Toys Collector's Club Drawing Board website went live, and... we had some questions. A crowdfunding campaign, with a limited number of items? So... isn't that just a normal sale then? Also, there were 4 different rewards tiers (one with the statue only, one with statue and comics, one with statue and signed comics, and one with statue and action figures 2-pack), but they were all at the same price of $500... Basically, a normal sale with first come, first served rewards? The website also showed the numbers in the negative in the first hours, making it even more confusing.

Needless to say, the campaign was funded really fast (15 minutes according to McFarlane Toys), and all 500 units have now been sold. "We were already used to items that sell out in seconds, but we had never seen crowdfunding campaigns that sell out in minutes. Truly avant-garde, bleeding edge stuff!"

There are still 24 days to go for the crowdfunding campaign, which is, once again, already sold out.

Lego started doing something like this a couple years ago. It's really confusing looking at this concept for the first time thinking you have 30 days to order, only to find out you missed out.

So say hypothetically they didnt sell all 500, would this have meant that the statue would not have moved into production like a typical crowdfund campaign? Otherwise it would be exactly as you said, a regular sale item... So weird. Mcfarlane toys has seemingly been leaning into a lot of odd experimental gimmicks lately like this one or the nft figures thing. Not really sure what the reasoning is since the company doesnt seem to be struggling with sales or anything. Is it just to say that they did it first? I think crowd funding is cool in some instances. We wouldnt have Action Force or Animal Warriors of the Kingdom without it since they both started that way, or even Haslab stuff makes sense for big expensive items. This, however, doesnt read as a true crowdfunding campaign, so I dont really understand the point of this.

This keeps my mind in the limbo. The minus figure is also a new, and honest way to keep customers "happy". I'm glad that I'm not into the statue business at all..

I don't know if you need the "Toyfarce News is a parody" disclaimer here. Aside from the fake quote, this is a pretty accurate description of the baffling reality. I'm just glad I had no interest in this project. I found the negative numbers thing particularly questionable.

Another head scratcher from the mind of Todd McFarlane.
