25 years ago, the first Spawn action figure was released to high praise and changed the quality of action figures to high standards, putting more art and imagination for you collectors of all ages.
Besides the comic it was based on, the toy line took on a life of its own, with Tod McFarlane proudly putting forth his name as the production company. The first figure was an awesome sight to behold, with more comic book prose and grandeur. It also came with its own comic, a welcome coolness to the package.
Now, twenty-five years later, Todd McFarlane is joining forces with Kickstarter to deliver an updated version of that original first 1995 Spawn action figure and comic book release.
The new 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. Link here, and a video here:
“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 skill sets, 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 from 1995,” said Spawn creator Todd in a recent press release. “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.
You can also 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.
The campaign has 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 are 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 cover remastered by Todd McFarlane himself. The backing levels range from $40 to $160 based on the offerings.

Captain’s Note: This new figure is awesome, and hoping there will be more updated remastered versions to those early Spawn figures, that I really enjoyed. My personal favorites were Cosmic Angela, Violator, Cyborg Violator, Vertebreaker, and the Heap.
