McFarlane Toys, a subsidiary of Todd McFarlane Productions, Inc., is a company started by Todd McFarlane that makes highly detailed models of characters from movies, comics, popular music, video games and sporting genres. Macfarlane has attracted both acclaim and criticism for offering a select range of action figurines that graphically depict torture, mutilation, bondage and murder. Founded in 1994, the company was originally dubbed "Todd Toys," but the name was changed in 1995 following pressure from Mattel (who feared the new company's name would be confused with that of Barbie's younger brother).
