Why I like McFarlane toys for 2022


Recommended Posts

I like the direction the toddfather is going in his numerous toy lines going into next year, especially spawn and multiverse offerings . Now, does he have issues that need to be addressed? Surely, but no more than with his competitors so I never understood the hate he gets from the community. Yes ,his figs are hard to stand ( which is why he provides stands ) ,yes he makes too many Batman figures, just like Hasbro makes too many spider man, wolverine and captain America variants . All the major toy manufacturers do. However, Todd has come a long way from making virtual statues to providing adequate articulation and superb paint apps which indicates out of all the companies he listens to the collectors and tries to respond with our requests. And he is slowly expanding the multiverse to other major characters people want ,also a major concession to his many critics, with offerings like swamp thing ,surely to be a hit in spite of the issue of variants ,it's a beast of a figure with great sculpt at a very affordable price. And that is the appeal of his brand, affordability. He makes toys for the blue collar collectors, not the elites who gladly pay $300 for imports or crowd funded show pieces the vast majority can't afford ,he makes stuff for guys like me ,who spend $20 -$30 After paying the bills and despite minor issues are decent figs .Would you rather pay $40 for a mega fig or buy a wave of pegwarmers for the $160 -$180 baf ? The answer to that question will inform you whether you are a toy collector or a toy snob but either way I my money will be going to McFarlane in the next year.
