ToyFever has graciously provided us with a MIB ToyFare exclusive Pin Pal Burns - and we're giving it away! Enter today!
Contest ends August 17, 2001, winning entry to be chosen randomly from all entrants on August 18, 2001. One entry per household, please.

Now when you call ToyFare customer service at (845)268-3594, you hear a pre-recorded message stating that all Pin Pal Burns figures will be shipped by August 20th. Don't worry, our poll shows most people did not get theirs yet.

As we reported earlier this week, Toys "R" Us is receiving Series 5 figures in quantity this week. We continue to hear reports of the figures showing up in east coast locations.
