If you followed our coverage for Toy Fair 2020 you probably saw the first prototype of the remastered Spawn figure that came out when Todd McFarlane launched the first wave of Spawn figures back in 1995.
“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 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 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.
The remastered figure 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!
There are four tiers to choose from and of course some will include autographs from Todd. 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.
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 reimagined, hyper-detailed updated version of the wooden plank weapon from that original Spawn Action Figure from 1995.
As a longtime Spawn fan backing this was no- brainer and I am pleased to add that the $100,000 goal set by McFarlane has already been met well in advance of the May deadline.
