    Anyone seen these? I saw them at meijer tonight and while they looked cool I kept thinking in the back of my head that they look too much like something Bruce Timm would draw..... but I'm fairly certain he had nothing to do with the toys. Even the title of the toyline is very similar.

    Anyways, the toys seemed cool, I may pick a few up.

    I keep seeing Spawn at TRU and I'm tempted to pick it up. But then I keep thinking it's something I could live w/o.

    Its actually a webcomic which is spinning off into a monthly comic book release.

    I think its just a tryout to see how well Spawn works outside of his original continuity. I kinda like the whole "magicians of ancient times made his suit" thing that Spawn X uses.

    I started seeing them about a week and a half ago, but I continue to pass them up. They look cool for the style that they are done in, but I really don't like that style. To me they aren't really something Mcfarlane toys are supposed to look like. The high detail of previous lines was the main reason I liked so many of the previously made figures, but these drop that level of detail for a more cartoony feel

    I like the design - however, I don't think they're poseable enough to make worth picking up.

    Yeah, if they're going to make them cartoony looking, they should have articulation to be played with.

    Does Spawn figs have something against poseability?
    Starting to think it's their trademark to have stiff figs. They look awesome though, and these look pretty cool.

    You'd think they'd at least compensate for the simplistic designs with reasonable articulation.

    I guess Image 10th Anniversary Spawn will be the only proof McFarlane Toys can make an articulated figure if they wanted to.
