McFarlane Toys is an action figure subsidiary for Todd McFarlane Productions Inc. that produces models of aspects from various pop culture-related phenomenon, including comics, movies, video games, sports, and music. It was founded in 1994 as Todd's Toys, although Mattel forced them to alter their name due to fear of that it would be confused with Barbie's younger brother.

The company was given an in-universe appearance at a few points: During the Tanker Incident in 2007, Solid Snake discovered a McFarlane Toys replica of Vulcan Raven, although because it was near a light, it initially gave off the illusion that Raven himself had somehow returned from the dead and was awaiting Snake. During the Big Shell Incident in 2009, Raiden would later encounter this action figure among the debris of Shell H, while attempting to locate Emma Emmerich.
McFarlane Toys was also implied to have frequently delivered action figures over to the Big Shell, which the personnel frequently placed in storage.
