Original Spawn Action Figure and Comic Remastered (2020) Campaign is Now Live!

–  In 1992, the very first Spawn comic book hit the shelves setting a sales record for an independent comic book. 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 McFarlane is joining forces with Kickstarter to deliver an updated version of that original 1995 Spawn Action Figure and Comic release. The Original Spawn Action Figure and Comic Remastered (2020) 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 action figure had, and the included comic cover will be remastered by the international award-winning artist and creator of the Spawn character, Todd McFarlane.

The Original Spawn Action Figure and Comic Remastered (2020) Kickstarter campaign is now live at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/spawnmasterworks/original-spawn-comic-and-toy-remastered-2020

“We’re thrilled that Todd McFarlane Productions is bringing Spawn to Kickstarter. When McFarlane launched his first line of toys in 1995, he showed that creative independence is a key ingredient in doing something innovative and new within an established and sometimes stagnant industry,” said Nick Yulman, Kickstarter’s Head of Design & Technology. “We’re creating this new section for Toys on Kickstarter to celebrate the launch of this project and to inspire more independent toy designers to follow their visions.”

“As an artist and a creator, I have worked to evolve my creations to the highest artistic level achievable.  I’m going back to the beginning of the first Spawn Action Figure and Comic I ever created.  It will be remastered and modernized with all the skillset, details, and technology that I have learned over the past 26 years to bring you the best version of that iconic Spawn Action Figure and Comic,” said Todd McFarlane, Spawn creator and legendary artist. “It’s an honor that Kickstarter is creating a new toy section on its platform and debuting it in conjunction with the first-ever Spawn Kickstarter.”

This newly remastered Original Spawn Action Figure and Comic (2020) version will come in a collector box with a 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 action figure of 1995, though upgrades will be all across the final product.

A new resealable shell will be used so that you may take out your Spawn Action Figure and Comic for display, but also be able to return them both into their packaging as 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 nameplate that can be used for display with your Spawn Action Figure and Comic. And each autographed item will also come with a bonus weapon: A reimagining, hyper-detailed updated version of the wooden plank weapon from that original Spawn Action Figure from 1995.

We also interviewed Todd and here are some of the things he said:

I would like to say to all C506 readers and everybody it is time to be very cautious, and keep ourselves healthy. Be careful of this pandemic, we have a lot to fight for, WE ARE GEEK WARRIORS!

A lot of friends, colleagues and the industry in general are suffering, I want to do something on myself so the spirits stay alive, we are geeks to the very end.

We are releasing fast, the figures will be available by November. We know a lot of people want a great holiday collectible gift. We start today, check fast, process orders and send to production.

I would like to see other products, just imagine how fun would it be to relaunch the Tortured Souls, Twisted Fairy Tales or McFarlane Dragons lines. It is up to the fans, what they request is delivered and we want it to be a hit. This is our first crowdfunding. 

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-PACK bundle which will include a Classic, Modern and Black & White figure. The latter two figures getting new head sculpt!) The first three levels will be offered with or without an autograph while the 3-Pack will only be offered with an autograph. And each of the single figures will have a NEW never-seen-before covers remastered by Todd McFarlane himself.

The backing levels range from $40 to $160 based on the offerings.

This is your chance to get in on history as it repeats itself in this remastered version of the Action Figure and Comic that helped changed the industry of action figures itself.  For additional, information visit the FAQ on the Spawn Kickstarter page.
