SPAWN.COM IN DETROIT FOR MLB FANFEST

McFarlane Toys staffers are packing up the booth, their belongings and a bunch of cool show-exclusive figures for our annual trek to the MLB FanFest. Once again we'll be part of the John Hancock All-Star FanFest, an interactive baseball theme park that will open Friday, July 8 and run through Tuesday, July 12 at COBO Conference/Exhibition Center in Detroit as part of 2005 Major League Baseball All-Star Week.

We will be offering two Detroit Tigers exclusive figures for sale during FanFest: catcher Ivan "Pudge" Rodriguez, No. 7 and new Tigers pitcher Troy Percival, No. 40. Pudge will be in his home white jersey and Percival in his gray road uniform. These will be the first Tigers figures ever released by McFarlane Toys.

The figures will cost $15 each or $25 for a set (prices include tax). Both figures are individually packaged in a special All-Star clamshell container. Initial purchase limits on Day 1 of the event will be three sets per person. As always, these limits are subject to change; purchase limits for the following days will be announced on-site.

McFarlane Toys will be in booth #5 located in the Collector's Showcase area. The booth will feature several two-up figure prototypes and a first look at the upcoming McFarlane's Sports Picks MLB lines. Plus you'll get to hang out and shoot the breeze with all the spawn.com staffers who will be in town for the show.

John Hancock All-Star FanFest, an interactive baseball theme park and the largest baseball fan event in the world, will make its first visit to Detroit to launch the 2005 Major League Baseball All-Star Week. FanFest includes more than 40 exhibits and attractions, Major League clinics and seminars, free autograph sessions, live entertainment, memorabilia and much more.
