Thing I didn’t expect to learn at Toy Fair: the guy who created Spawn loves crazy video game rabbits. Specifically, Todd McFarlane loves the titular characters from Ubisoft’s wacky Rabbids franchise and thinks that that they’re going to be a huge pop culture phenomenon.
I talked to McFarlane earlier this week at Toy Fair and he explained why he’s adding the kid-friendly Rabbids to his adult-aimed collectibles line. He also makes it sound like Project Copernicus — the Kingdoms of Amalur MMO that bit the dust when Curt Schilling’s video game dev studio crumbled last year — was close to being done. Watch the whole thing to hear how McFarlane landed the Assassin’s Creed licence and what it’s going to take to get Spawn back to video games.
