McFarlane Toys has released an update ahead of their Kickstarter Campaign going live. They are looking to crowdfund a fully remastered version of the original Spawn action figure, along with a completely redrawn Spawn #1 by Todd McFarlane. The details have confirmed this will be an articulated 7″ scale action figure. They specifically mention it will be “more than double what the original toy had”. The figure will include four interchangeable portraits, a gun, and a club. There will be three versions available. Those include a Classic Costume Version, a Modern Costume Version, and an Artist Proof Black and White Version. You will also be able to back a 3-Pack featuring all three versions. The packaging will be a collector friendly resealable shell box.
The figures are priced at
$50 $40 each, with a special $85 $80 version including an autographed Todd McFarlane placard. The campaign begins at some point today. Keep an eye on the official The Original SPAWN Action Figure & Comic Remastered (2020) Kickstarter Page for when the campaign goes live. If any additional info is launched with the campaign, we’ll add it to this post. Check out full details and some photos and 3D renders after the jump.
The Kickstarter is now live! We can confirm the figure will be very articulated, with over 20 points of articulation. The campaign needs $100,000 in pledges to movie forward. As of this writing, it’s already over $40,000. Click the link above for the Kickstarter, and see new images after the jump.
UPDATE 3 (April 10th):
Todd McFarlane has updated the Kickstarter with additional details, and further clarification. Each figure will now include interchangeable hands. The 3-Pack of figures will now include all available heads. Stretch Goals will be coming in the near future as well. Check out the full update, with video, on the Spawn Kickstarter Update Page.
UPDATE 4 (April 12th):
A new update has been posted. As the campaign has exceeded $1.2 Million, each figure is being upgraded to include metal chains instead of rubber ones.
UPDATE 5 (April 14th):
A new update has been posted. As the campaign has exceeded $1.4 Million, the Three Pack level will be getting 3 different new weapons, PLUS each include the standard original weapon.
UPDATE 6 (April 16th):
A new update has been posted. As the campaign has exceeded $1.5 Million, the Three Pack level will be getting another new head – 6 in total. In addition – each single figure will now come packed with 2 heads. CLASSIC SPAWN – Will come with MASKED head & painted SCREAMING head. MODERN SPAWN – Comes with SHOELACE head & Al Simmons HUMAN head. ARTIST PROOF SPAWN – Comes with unpainted MASKED head & unpainted SCREAMING head.
UPDATE 7 (April 19th):
A new update has been posted. When the campaign has exceeded $1.7 Million (at 1.6+ now), 2 new sculpted items will be automatically added to Modern Spawn depending on the way you purchase him. All copies of Modern Spawn will come with the spiked boot, regardless of whether the purchase was single or in the 3 pack. As an extra bonus for the 3-pack purchasers – Modern Spawn will also come with the arm gauntlet. They have also confirmed details on purchasing more than one is coming in the next update.
UPDATE 8 (April 21st):
A new update has been posted. No new items this round, but 3d models of the weapons were shown including the Launcher, Necro Sword, and Wooden Spiked Hook.
UPDATE 9 (April 22nd): (GOOD ONE)
A new update has been posted. Prototypes from the factory are in hand. They show the figure’s articulation, heads and weapons. The awesome thing here – two articulation points fans have been asking for (including me) have been addressed. The ab crunch – no cut – but they are testing the torso being soft with a bend joint underneath. IMO that would be perfection. The second is bicep cut – not present, but he said it will be on the next test shot. So ab crunch and bicep cuts will most likely be present in final, which is great. There are also hands which go with the specific weapons in the video. Hit the link to check it out!
UPDATE 10 (April 25th):
A new update has been posted. The project has passed the 2 Million dollar mark! The team has updated with multiple new upgrades. All figures will now come with a steel chain for the NECK/CAPE area (in addition to belt area). All figures will now come with an extra pair of FIST hands. All figures will now come with one transparent NECRO-ENERGY Attachment. All Trilogy 3 Packs will come with 3 different NECRO-ENERGY Attachments. All Trilogy 3 Packs will come with a GOLD PLAQUE and GOLD SIGNATURE.
UPDATE 11 (April 27th):
A new update has been posted. No new features from hitting a milestone, but a video showing the functionality of the articulation in the cape is live. It’s working very similar to the original cape, with it flapping open and around the figure. The cape is huge, and very faithful to the original toy. However, for those looking to get some really dynamic posing going, or any pose where he isn’t at near full height, a custom solution will be needed. Hopefully our friends at CJESIM can be ready to go so they’re available in November when it ships!
UPDATE 12 (May 5th):
A new update has been posted. The project has passed the 2.5 million dollar mark. McFarlane Toys have decided to give everyone who ordered a Classic Spawn, via any pledge level, a PAINTED Necro Sword. Up until now, this was only going to be available in the black and white Artist Proof version.
While the stretch goals are not formal and laid out like traditional Kickstarters, the McFarlane team is listening and interacting with the fans via comments on the campaign and adding in features being suggested at key milestones in pledging. A lot of what folks asked for has been done so far. The offerings are more polished and well rounded from where it started. We suggest you sound off in the comments on what you want, even if already said by someone else, and of course, support it with a pledge if you dig it!
There are currently 2.5 ish days to go. If you are thinking about jumping in, now is the time!
SPAWN MASTERWORKS – The ORIGINAL Comic & Toy Re-Mastered
In 1992 the very first Spawn comic book hit the shelves setting a sales record for an independent. A few years later in 1995, the first Spawn action figure was released to critical acclaim and helped usher in a whole new way of giving you detail and ‘art’ to your action figures.
Now, twenty-five years later, Todd MacFarlane is joining forces with Kickstarter to help deliver an updated version of that original 1995 toy & comic release. This figure will be 7 inches tall and come with a huge folding cape and weapon. The articulation in this version will be more than double what the original toy had, and the included comic will be re-drawn by the international award-winning artist and creator of the Spawn character, Todd McFarlane.
As well, this new remastered version will come in its own box with slipcover to help preserve the condition of the figure, comic and packaging. And speaking of the actual blister packaging, it will mimic the original design from the classic toy of 1995, though upgrades will be all across the final product.
A new resealable shell will be used so that you may take out you figure and comic for display, but also be able to return them both into their packaging like you have never opened it in the first place!
Finally, if you choose, you can get an autograph by Todd McFarlane himself. Todd will be personally signing a name plate that can be used for display with your comic and toy. And each autographed item will also come with a bonus weapon: A reimagining of the wooden plank weapon from that original Spawn figure from 1995.
To simplify this offering, there will be only four levels: A CLASSIC costume version. A MODERN costume version (with new head), an ARTIST PROOF (what we’re calling the ‘black & white) and lastly the 3-PAK bundle which will include a Classic, Modern and Black & White figure. The latter two figure getting new head sculpts!)
The first three levels will be offered with or without an autograph while the 3-Pak will only be offered with an autograph. And each of the single figures will have a NEW never seen before covers drawn by Todd McFarlane himself.
This is your chance to get in on history as it repeats itself in this remastered version of the character and toy that helped changed the industry of action figures itself.
