MCFARLANE ACTION FIGURES FEATURED IN 'LIVE FREE OR DIE HARD'
John McClane Goes One-on-one with SPAWN!
June 29, 2007
Copyright 2014 TMP International, Inc.

For those of you who have been waiting patiently for Spawn to appear in another movie, the time has come. Within the first two minutes of this summer's blockbuster action flick Live Free or Die Hard, Bruce Willis's character, John McClane, picks up a 12-inch Spawn Issue 7 Cover Art figure that belongs to the young hacker (Justin Long) about to be taken in for questioning by the FBI.

"You play with dolls?" McClane asks.

The hacker gets very nervous watching McClane examine the figure, and asks him not to touch it. Not understanding the value of this collectible, McClane accidentally breaks the arm, but before he can check SPAWN.com to see if there is a replacement available for purchase, the apartment and his computer are blown up. (Note: No Spawn action figures were harmed during the making of this film. The good folks at People for the Ethical Treatment of Spawn made sure of that.)

We're campaigning for the Academy to add a "Best Performance by an Action Figure" award to be added to the 2008 Academy Awards.

To see the first eight minutes of the movie, which includes this pivotal scene, click on 'Live Free or Die Hard' at www.movies.yahoo.com or check Live Free or Die Hard at your local theater.
