Exclusive Interview with Artist Frank Kozik of Kidrobot at NY Toy Fair 2020

One of the highlights of NY Toy Fair 2020 was getting the chance to chat with legendary graphic artist Frank Kozik. When it came to concert poster art from the mid-80’s through the “grunge” era, Frank’s posters heralded the arrival of some of the time’s most classic bands from The Butthole Surfers to The Melvins to Soundgarden – bands were psyched to see their name on one of Frank’s posters. In 2001 Frank decided to dedicate his time to the toy industry and soon became interested in vinyl toys and then in 2014, following NECA’s acquisition of Kidrobot, he joined the team as Chief Creative Officer. read more

‘The Early Days of McFarlane Toys’: The Horror News Network Review

If you grew up in the 90s, you couldn’t make it through your childhood without having at least one encounter with one of the many products of McFarlane Toys. Whether it be their Ultra Action Figures of popular Spawn characters, their variety of Kiss and other music lines, or their movie and professional sports lines, there was a McFarlane toy out there for everyone. If you were a big Spawn fan, though, you lived and breathed McFarlane Toys. During those years, barely a month would go by without a new comic book release or a new line of figures hitting the shelves to get everybody talking, and “mint in box” was the name of the game. Some Spawn fans have moved on from collecting since those golden years, but Todd McFarlane Productions is still as relevant as ever given the recent milestone release of Spawn #301 and the anticipation of an upcoming Blumhouse major motion picture directed by McFarlane himself and starring Jamie Foxx as Al Simmons. read more
