Nice Crowd Turned Out Despite the Rain

The cold torrential downpour in New York City didn't keep away hundreds of fans wanting to be the first to get the newly released McFarlane's Sports Picks: Basketball Series 1 action figures autographed by Todd McFarlane.

    Todd was in town at the NBA Store on Wednesday, March 20 to officially launch the new basketball series of action figures.

    The event kicked off in the NBA Store's Center Court with a live interview taping of Todd for the NBA's Inside Stuff show. Fans filled the studio audience seats, and participated in a question-and-answer session following the taping. Also, several lucky fans won figures signed by Todd in the NBA Store Live! contest at the event. On display in the Center Court area were the Sports Picks Basketball 2-up sculpts from series 1 and the Shaquille O'Neal sculpt from Series 2.

    Many of the fans that attended the autograph session have been following Todd's career since his early days. It was a family affair, several of the attendees were there on behalf of a family member. Sons, husbands and brothers that couldn't miss work, convinced or bribed parents, wives and siblings into bringing their favorite comic or figure to the signing, as well as purchasing the new basketball figures to add to their McFarlane Toys collection.

    While in NYC, Todd made a visit to the 102.7 WNEW studio to talk sports with Scott Farrell of the "Farrell in the Morning" show. He ended the day talking hockey on ESPN Radio's Hockey Night show with hosts Peter Schwart and Don LaGreca.
