Back in late 2016 McFarlane Toys dropped the first new Spawn figure in years. It was a 7 inch Color Tops version of Spawn in his classic get up titled Spawn Rebirth. It had limited articulation but a fantastic sculpt and paint. Fast forward almost a year and their next entry into the new Spawn figureverse is here, Commando Spawn. Color Tops may be done as a name, but the 7 inch scale figures with minimal to average articulation are still going strong. Commando Spawn does indeed have more articulation than the previous one, but it is still a static pose base sculpt with articulation added in after the fact. Accepting that for what it is, it is another excellent piece. Sculpt is again top notch, paint is again superb – on both versions. Along with the base Commando Spawn, there is a variant Scorched Earth version which has a weathered bronze statue vibe. We have both of these in hand, read on to check out over 85 HD pictures of them in action after the break!
McFarlane Toys Commando Spawn and Scorched Earth Commando Spawn 7 Inch Figures (2017)
Another well done figure for what it is. The articulation angle is immediately going to get brought up, and, I know. I agree. Would prefer a full on S.H. Figuarts level articulation figure, in 7 inch scale, with this level of sculpt and paint. That isn’t happening, not right now anyway. So I’m taking these Spawn figures for what they are, really well done poseable statues. And, in limited quantity, I am ok with that. I really dig Spawn from back in the day, and having new versions of him tucked in on the shelves has been fun. Photographing them has been super fun as you can see below. This round did have more articulation than the last for sure. We get knees and elbows with click joints and swivels. Shoulders, waist and and hips get swivel cuts only. Head gets a left/right rotation with slight tilt. Wrists have a swivel and slight click joint. Can get some different poses if you really focus. In the end though he’s sculpted for the main pose seen on the box, everything else is an afterthought.
I dig these for what they are, happy to have them in the collection, all while hoping they go full articulation style later on. If you are into Spawn and want to rep him on your shelves or desks, it’s worth a pick up! Commando Spawn is shipping now and should be in stores soon. The Bronze version is a chase variant. Both will retail for $19.99.
