    Mcfarlane toys makes very cool toys. Are they still in business? I dont see thier stuff out there anymore. If not what happen to them? I used to collect all spawn figures. I had like 300 to 400 figures. In the end they took way too much space to display. So I lost interest and quit. Now I see a few cool ones that I want again. I looking for the 12 inch spaen figures from the comic covers. I also love the movie maniacs they use to make. Great stuff!

    :eek:  I was told they went out of business a while ago. Great to hear that they are still going forward. But is spawn dead? comics or toys? I have not kept up for 10- 15 years since I was collecting spawn figures and comic books.

    I still have a bunch of Spawn figures, someday I'll even have someplace to display them.

    As far as I know, McFarlane Toys killed all non-sports and non-halo lines a couple years ago. Mainly they didn't sell as well as the other lines, of course, the last line of Spawn figures was all remakes of older figures, in a brand new tiny scale that everybody hated, so they didn't sell well.

    I don't know. I've never followed Spawn comics, and I really only follow DC and Marvel comics through tpbs, and even then not until they're old and cheap.

    Damn! its still going after all these years? Wow it must have some staying power for todd mcfarlane. I wished he went back to drawing monsters. They are so much better than the real life stuff artwork these days.

    Old thread but I didn't want to make a new one (there are like 500 Spawn threads).

    Found this gem at a flea-market today. I always wanted it but didn't want to pay the crazy aftermarket prices. Vendor wanted $25, I got it for $20.

    Anyone else disappointed that McFarlane's new Spawn figure is just another plastic statue?

    https://www.amazon.com/McFarlane-To...&ie=UTF8&qid=1475195804&sr=1-1&keywords=spawn

    I'm still going to get it but come on. I figured we were getting an actual action figure when this was first announced.

    Not only that but most of the old Classic Covers series look better than this new one. They all had real chains on them too.

    Most ask around $100. But if you watch for it you can find it for like $60 on occasion.

    I was hoping McFarlane's new figure would be something similar to this one. Like an actual action figure with articulation.

    Todd needs to add articulation if he wants to revive the line. I like the plastic statues but I'm in the minority. He should also hire a better writer...

    The description says it's articulated...Is that wrong?

    Anyways, I have more Spawn figures than I'll ever need already but this one looks nice too.

    I love many of the old Classic Covers plastic statues too but I just wanted a new Spawn action figure from Todd. They've added some impressive articulation in their Halo line and I really wanted to see that incorporated into a new Spawn line (especially because he's going back to 7"). Part of me really wants to see him do good again.

    Totally agree about the better writer too. There is something undeniably cool about Spawn (both character and premise) but the stories were always poorly written. I've heard it's gotten even worse since but haven't even bothered to check it out.

    You can tell it's pretty much just a statue. The head will probably rotate and it looks like there is a cut for right leg swivel but that's it. It's just like most of his later stuff had.

    The spikey bands around the statue's arms & legs make no sense. How would anyone wear that and not just stab themselves. Enemy just has to push his arm next to his body and he's a gonner.
