Here are 2 rare promos that McFarlane Toys issued to promote Michael Myers and their 2nd series Movie Maniacs line from 1999.

First off is a rarely seen trade ad that ran in TV Guide in the 4th quarter of 1999.

Second is a RARE Myers badge that was worn by McFarlane employees during the 1999 Toy Fair. The front side of the badge has a superb head-shot image of the actual Myers/Maniacs figure posing in a heavy fog. Each badge was individually numbered on the back, with a complete list of all of their 1999 toy licensees.

First Pic: The trade ad and the front of the badge.

Hey, that's cool, Josh. That's the badge which they wore with the chain around their necks, wasn't it? I haven't seen that ad before. I have a different one that McFarlane put out with Michael's head in the fog. Nice items. :)

Thanks Paul :)

Yes, that's the same badge indeed! I think I've seen the other trade ad that you have--it's magazine sized and in full color, right? SUPER image, imo!

Yeah, that's the one! I wish the other companies put out some cool tie-in items for their Michael figures.
