  1. Todd McFarlane has released a new video as part of the WonderCon at home event going on this weekend. In the video talks about various things including toys, comics and his Spawn movie. Most of the things he talks about in the video are things we've heard him say before, but I just wanted to recap a few things that stood out to me. First he confirms that the next Kickstarter that will launch later this year will be for a new Medieval Spawn figure. Last October Todd had mentioned he was thinking about Medieval Spawn for the Kickstarter treatment, but no its 100% confirmed as happening. More details should be coming soon. He says it will be run even better than the first Kickstarter . He also suggested they might do more than one Kickstarter this year. He also talks about doing more Spawn figures at general retail. Nothing really specific. At one point while he is talking about Spawn figures, they show up an image of a Violator figure being painted which you can see a screen cap for below. We've also seen him previously tease other Spawn figures like Cowboy Spawn and Redeemer Spawn Todd also mentioned his company is going to soon be announcing 7 new licenses for action figures they will be doing. I suppose some of these will include things like the Disney Mirrorverse figures we've previously reported on. He mentions it will be things based on TV shows and movies. He mentions how he is going to be doing more artist proof (unpainted) figures for as many of his lines as possible. The artist proof figures is something they had been doing with their Warhammer figures, and it looks like we could start to see similar figures in other lines like DC Multiverse. In the video he mentions they are working on a new Batmobile and something bigger. It's not clear if this is going to be another Build-A-Batmobile type thing or something that would be in scale with 7" figures. When he was showing hand gestures for size while talking about this in the video, it didn't seem like it would be something in actual 7" scale.
  2. Kevin Smith is recreating the Masters of the Universe in his image for Netflix and of course an action figure line comes along with it. I am pleasantly surprised at how much I am liking what I have seen so far, this Battle Cat is no exception.

  3. Here's my custom MOTU Origins Spawn. Spawn was made using a Master's of the WWE Universe Seth Rollins as a base figure. With various Spawn figures including the Mortal Kombat 11 gold series figure for costume add on's. The head is a resin cast of said figure. I hope you enjoy this, and feel free to leave feedback.
  4. TODD MCFARLANE ANNOUNCES FOR 2021, HIS NEW ATTEMPT AT CREATING A SHARED UNIVERSE OF COMIC BOOK CHARACTERS THAT WILL GROW INTO A GLOBAL BRAND BY RECRUITING AN ALL-STAR LINE-UP OF CREATORS AND EXPANDING HIS SPAWN EMPIRE. While there is no word about a dedicated Spawn action figure line in this announcement to go along with this new Spawn comic book Universe, we have been several indications such a thing is in the works. First when an image leaked out earlier in the month for what looked like some kind of Zoom call possibly with retailers showing off new Spawn figures like 7" figures of Cowboy and Redeemer Spawn. Then just the other day Todd himself posted an image for what looked like an early prototype for a Violator figure. And with that image Todd asked folks who wants a new figure of it. Hopefully more details about Spawn figures will be coming soon, but for now check out the full press release put out by McFarlane for his Spawn Universe. Press Release: Today, Image Comics' President Todd McFarlane announced his bold attempt at creating his own multi-character, interconnected comic book universe. His stated goal is to establish a shared fictional universe over time in the vein of what the other comic industry giants, Marvel, and DC Comics, have accomplished with their comic book universes. The announcement was given by McFarlane during a first look presentation at the Direct Market Retailers at the Annual ComicsPRO Conference. The character Spawn, created by McFarlane, will be at the forefront of the initial launch of new titles, but the long-term goal is that Spawn will become but one of many characters that will succeed not only in the comics industry but in many mediums across the globe. McFarlane will capitalize on the twenty-eight-year success story of Spawn, which has seen sales increase between 150 to 600% from pre-pandemic orders. The Spawn title currently is a top 5 monthly selling title on the Diamond Distributors Top 100 Chart. Recently, a new release of a Spawn figure on Kickstarter set a new Kickstarter record, in its category, for raising just under $3. 5 million in 30 days. That figure was also recently awarded the prestigious People's Choice 2021 Toy of The Year (TOTY) by The Toy Association, Inc. As part of his announcement, McFarlane announced four new titles coming out in 2021, with three of them continuing as regular monthly titles, meaning that there will be an opportunity for fans of the Spawn character and his new expanding world to get their stories from it on a weekly basis instead of just twelve times a year. "The simple question is this: DC Comics started a shared universe in the late 1930s. Marvel Comics began theirs in the early 1960s… so, can lightning strike a third time beginning in 2021? I personally do not have the answer to that question right now, but the only way to get an answer to that question is to make the attempt in the first place, "said McFarlane, Image president, and Spawn Creator. "This is a long-intended plan that will need the help of dozens and dozens of creators to help create hundreds and hundreds of characters. And then to reward those creators if any of their ideas pay off in a big way outside of the comic industry. The quest isn't to have our ideas exclusively live in the comic book industry but to have merit and value outside of that industry as well. My character Spawn has been an example of what can happen with creation… so, what are the possibilities if hundreds of creations are brought together? Marvel and DC Comics have shown us that a collective group of characters, together, in a shared universe can resonate globally. I think it is time for David to attempt to join the same arena as the Goliaths of the world." In June, in what McFarlane is calling "2021 the Year of Spawn," comic retailers will be able to order SPAWN'S UNIVERSE #1. This will be a book that will set the stage with a story that will then spill out into the other new monthly titles. The first title will release in August with a book called KING SPAWN #1. The character Spawn will now join the rare company of stalwart characters, like Superman, Batman, and Spider-Man, that will have multiple monthly books for the same title character. It will also mark the first time in twenty-eight years that anyone can buy a monthly issue #1 Spawn book. It gives McFarlane hope of reaching a new generation of readers that missed out on the initial launch of the Spawn back in 1992. In October comes the second new monthly called GUNSLINGER SPAWN. This title character has been a huge hit among the fanbase over the past year, and each of his appearances has garnered enthusiasm at the stores and online. Finally, there will be a new #1 team book, which will band five characters together to fight against forces too big for any of them to take on alone. That book is titled THE SCORCHED. Spawn, Redeemer, Gunslinger, Medieval Spawn, and She-Spawn begins the group's adventures. However, McFarlane promises a rotating cast of heroes over the coming months to keep the roster of heroes fresh. He also said that he would be bringing in new major villains into the fold, too. To lend a creative hand on some of this expanding list of titles, McFarlane has recruited an all-star list of comic book creators such as Art Adams, Jason Shawn Alexander, Carlo Barberi, Brett Booth, J. Scott Campbell, Greg Capullo, Donny Cates, Jim Cheung, Mike del Mundo, Javier Fernandez, David Finch, Jonathan Glapion, Kevin Keane, Aleš Kot, Puppeteer Lee, Sean Lewis, Sean Gordon Murphy, Ben Oliver, Stephen Segovia, Paulo Siqueira, Marc Silvestri, Marcio Takara, and Frank Quitely, as well as others he will be announcing in the coming months. All of this just continued to build on the mythology of Spawn and his world. The original SPAWN book is one of the world's bestselling and longest-running comics, with over 100 million copies sold in more than 120 countries. In 2019, McFarlane made history with the release of the historic SPAWN #300 and record-breaking SPAWN #301. These milestones have earned McFarlane the Guinness World Records title for the world's longest-running creator-owned comic book series. SPAWN #300 became the 2nd highest-selling comic title and was also the only character to place two of its issues in the Top 11 for highest-selling issues for that year. A new movie of SPAWN is currently in development with BlumHouse Studios, Jamie Foxx, and Jeremy Renner, all attached to the project as McFarlane will be making his directorial debut on the film when it goes into production.
  5. Shown below is our first look at the second wave of Walmart exclusive Gold Label figures from McFarlane Toys. This wave will include 7" versions of Spawn (Curse of Apocalypse), Batman Earth-52 (Gold Variant) and Warhammer 40,000 Blood Angels Primaris Lieutenant. We should be getting more details on these sometime next week.
  6. sb_toyz dazzles us with a gallery on in-hand images for the new regular release Mandarin Spawn Red figure from McFarlane Toys. You can purchase this figure from our sponsor BigBadToyStore.com. Check out the images below.
  7. While we have yet to see any images other than some early unpainted prototype ones, Diamond Comics has listed in their latest Previews magazine the regular release version of the new 7" Mandarin Spawn figure. Yesterday we showed you in-hand images for the Gold Label Edition Blue version that is being released as a Walmart exclusive. The regular version which will feature the more traditional red colors is slated for released everywhere. Diamond is listing the regular release version with a March 2021 release date. Hopefully we will be getting images for the regular version released soon. NOTE the image shown here is for reference purposes only and not of the upcoming new figure.
  8. oday Todd McFalrane released a new video showing off his newly announced 12" Mortal Kombat Commando Spawn figure. While nicely detailed the figure does seem to feature minimal articulation. See an image below as well as the video for the figure announcement. No word on price or a release date. Other recent 12" figures released by McFarlane have cost around $40.
  9. This images popped up on Reddit that was described online conference that took palce yesterday with what appears to be Todd McFarlane showing off some new Spawn figures. With Toy Fair having been canceled this year, perhaps this was some kind of virtual presentation McFarlane was having online with retailers. In the image we see Spawn figures of varying sizes including what looks like new 7" figures of Cowboy and Redeemer Spawn . Hopefully more news on this will be coming soon.
  10. Todd McFarlane today announced that McFarlane Toys is doing a new 7" Gold Label Collection Mandarin Spawn figure that will be released as a Walmart exclusive. The Walmart one will be blue. There will also be a regular release version done in red. Todd in the video says the two figures will differ in a number of ways. The spikes on the shoulder will be reversed and there will be different faces and loin cloth. For accessories it will come with a big staff weapon which will be exclusive to the blue Walmart one and dragon sword which I believe will come with both versions. The figure looks to be possibly part of McFarlane's new The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt line I guess because their will be some kind of Spawn skin or such available in the game, similar to what we saw with Mortal Kombat 11. The Walmart exclusvie one will have a special gold foil label on it. The Walmart one will be going up for pre-order on October 1. Todd posted a video which also highlights some of the articulation on the figure that you can check out below.
  11. McFarlane Toys has released official details and images for their The Original SPAWN Action Figure Kickstarter which launches later today. The figure will be 7" and have double the articulation as the original figure released back in the 90's, and will include a folding cape. Read on for full details and images below: 0588906abbe192fcdff19a1312c15517_h264_high.mp4
  12. According to Todd, Medieval Spawn is likely the next version of Spawn to get the Kickstarter Treatment. In this new video he talks about how it is the one he wants to do next. He does leave the door open that it could be something else by saying he hasn't totally made up his mind. He thinks it would make a "badass" action figure because it would come with tons of cool accessories like a giant shield, big ax, sword, mace with spikes and chain and more. He also wants to make some of the weapons out of actual metal. He also would give it multiple heads with 4-5 different masks. Some of the masks would have hinges so you could lift them up to reveal the skull head inside. On top of that he also showed off his first Kickstarter Spawn at the beginning of the video giving us or most recent look at the progress that figure has made since it was fully funded earlier this year. See Todd's entire video below. No images of an actual new Medieval Spawn have been shown since right now this just seems to be an idea in Todd's head. Do you want to see Medieval Spawn and do you think it should be offered through the crowdsourcing route, let us know in the COMMENTS SECTION below.
  13. McFarlane Toys has announced new bloody variants for their 7" Mortal Kombat 11 line. The battle begins... Baraka featured in his Bloody Horkata skin, Spawn in his Blood Feud Hunter skin and Raiden featured in his Bloody White Hot Fury skin will be coming out next month in limited availability.

  15. I started this mission to see how much Walmart cares about their customers who purchase their toy collectibles that are sold at their stores and online site. Reading TNI Admin JayC post about fixing scalping problems again helped push me to do it as well... On Friday, August 7th, Walmart.com put on sale at 2 PM Eastern, the 7" Mortal Kombat Spawn figure Signature Edition with a limit purchase of 1 for $59.99. This was a very limited figure of 1000 and was signed by Spawn creator Todd McFarlane. The figure being sold was the 7" Mortal Kombat Spawn figure with the mace, which is the second release. The first release being with the sword and the third release being the Target SDCC 2020 with the axe. When the sale went live, I refreshed the page and clicked the pre-order button. I received a pop-up message stating there was an internal error on Walmart.com side and I should try again. I refreshed the page again, clicked the pre-order button and same pop-up error again. I refreshed the page again and the figure was listed as sold out. I knew going into this purchase it would be very hard to obtain because of the limited supply but I decided to check out eBay.com and saw 2 or 3 figures being sold with the asking prices from $200 to $1,000. Six hours later and at the time of posting this thread... There is currently 38 live auctions and 10 completed auctions on eBay. Out of the 38 live auctions, there are 15 live auctions where the sellers have a quantity of 2 to 6 figures for sale. Out of the 10 completed auctions, 2 sellers sold 2 figures and another seller sold 4 figures. For only 1000 figures available with a limited purchase of 1. I'm starting to wonder how many employees from Walmart.com are selling these figures? I decided to take this information and email Walmart.com about this incident and the listings on eBay. I informed them about what happened to me on their website and pointed out directly all the eBay auctions. I don't believe Walmart will do anything about the auctions but I wanted to let them know that real customers are sick and tired of getting screwed over by Scalpers who are somehow purchasing multiple items just to sell at a higher cost and major corporate stores are ignoring the whole situation just so they can make a buck. Walmart has not commented about this incident.
  16. Late last night Todd McFarlane posted this image on his personal Instagram account. The image appears to show a never-before seen Spawn related Cy-Gor figure. In the caption for the image it says, "Coming Soon..! CY-GOR (cybernetic gorilla)" and includes the following tags - #hybrid #savage #huge #mcfarlanetoys. The figure in the image does not appear to be any of the previous Cy-Gor figures that McFarlane Toys has released in the past, so it's unclear if what is shown is a brand new figure or what. The figure in the image does not appear to have any kind of articulation, however if this is an early prototype, that could be added later. If this is in fact some kind of new figure, the bigger question is how would it be released? Unlike Spawn himself, Cy-Gor as far as I know did not appear in the Mortal Kombat 11 video game. So it would seem unlikely to me that they would do this figure for that line like they did with Spawn himself. Of course there is the Kickstarter route, but it seems kind of early to already be teasing another Spawn figure for that, not to mention the idea behind that was originally said to produce new figures of all the characters done in the original first series of Spawn figures. The original Cy-Gor figure wasn't released until series 4. Does that mean McFarlane is preparing to launch a new mass market dedicated Spawn figure line, and if so will the figures be more statue like or will they be highly articulated like we've seen them do for Fortnite, DC Multiverse and Mortal Kombat? I guess time will tell.
  17. For those who missed out on getting their hands on the McFarlane Toys 7" Mortal Kombat 11 figure the first time, you are going to get another chance at it. However there is going to be one minor change made to the figure with the second run. The original batch of figures released featured the character with a sword, and the new figures will feature a mace. Images of the new weapons have yet to be released, but if it is accurate then it likely will be the war club you see him use in the game. You can pre-order the Spawn figure from our sponsor BigBadToyStore.com now, though right now they are still listing the sword coming with the figure, expect that to change soon.
  18. If you are a fan of Todd McFarlane's Spawn character, then you probably know about the recent Kickstarter he held for a new 7" Remastered Original Spawn action figure based on the original 5" one released back in 1995. The Kickstater which had an original funding goal of $100,000 ended up with 23,761 backers and a total pledged amount of $3,447,390. All-in-all a fairly huge success for the comic book artist. Of course that first Spawn figure wasn't the only one released back in 1995. It was one of 6 figures released in the first wave that Todd used to help launch his toy company McFarlane Toys. When Todd first announced the plans for his Kickstarter during Toy Fair in February, he said that if it was successful he would look to do something similar for the other 5 figures from that first 1995 wave. Besides the original Spawn figure the wave also included figures of Violator, Overtkill, Tremor, Clown and Medieval Spawn. Since it seems pretty clear the first Kickstarter was a success, I can only assume that another one for another wave 1 figure will eventually be launched. However which figure will get the modern treatment remains unkown. I've decided to rank the remaining 5 figures from that first 1995 wave in order of least to most I would like see get the modern figure treatment. Of course feel free to leave your own thoughts in the COMMENT SECTION of which figure you want to see next. 5) Medieval Spawn Being we just got a Spawn figure, I would rather see this variant version of the lead character held back for a later release. It's a cool looking figure, but probably my least favorite of the original 6. 4) Tremor Only being a casual Spawn fan, I would say Tremor is probably the least known character to me from series 1. Despite looking cool, that lack of familiarity has me putting him at number 4. 3) Violator I almost feel like Violator and Clown should be released as a two-pack, but if I had to pick one over the other, I would rather see the Clown version done as a modern figure before Violator. 2) Clown Being Spawn's most notable nemesis, I can see Clown coming in at number 1 for a lot of people. I definitely would love to see a highly detailed and fairly well articulated 7" Clown figure produced by McFarlane, but from a personal standpoint he is not my favorite character. Because of that I have Clown coming in at number 2. 1) Overtkill My number 1 pick, and my favorite character from the first wave of 1995 Spawn figures is Overtkill, or as I know him better as, Over Kill. You see my first exposure for this guy doesn't actually come from the Spawn comic books, it comes from an old VHS video series called "The Comic Book Greats". As a kid I always wanted to draw, unfortunately I was never really talented enough to do it well. Still I enjoyed watching tutorials from great comic book artists. Back in 1991 the great Stan Lee launched a new series on VHS called "The Comic Book Greats" where he would interview well known artists and writers of the time. The first episode featured Todd McFarlane who of course had become an artist sensation at Marvel. During that episode the two sat down and mapped out from scratch the creation of a brand new never-before-seen character they called Over Kill. I still have that VHS tape somewhere. Later on Todd would rename that character Overtkill and insert him into his new Spawn universe at Image Comics. Because of that Stan Lee video series, Overtkill has always been a favorite of mine and I would love to see a modern articulated 7" figure of him created. If they do him I will definitely be buying one.
  19. Todd McFarlane himself has released new official images for the upcoming 7" articulated Mortal Kombat Spawn figure from McFarlane Toys which will have 22 points of articulation and be out in March.
