New 7" Gold Label Collection Mandarin Spawn Figure Revealed From McFarlane Toys

September 01, 2020
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.

But these arent being sold AS Spawn figures. The first one was sold as a Mortal Kombat figure and this one I think will be sold as a Witcher figure. 

Spawn was actually IN Mortal Kombat 11, which makes sense to have a figure version of him. Its just a cross promotional way of getting figures made and spawn cross over together. McFarlane did the same thing when Soul Calibur 2 came out and spawn guest starred in the Xbox version of the game. With that deal, he made figures of some of the cast as well as 2 versions of spawn from the game. There is no tie in with Witcher and Spawn. I would hazard a guess that a 5 year old game will not suddenly be getting a new update that has any form of spawn in it to sell more copies. I would also find it an extremely strange move to market a mandarin spawn as a witcher figure. All that will do is confuse tf out of people. If anything, this gold label is more of a round about all star miscellaneous property akin to NECAs player select line they had years ago. It had miscellaneous characters from many different video games, but in one line. 

 

As for the figure itself, I used to love the original. I even had the original and a variant of it as well as the 2nd revision where they remade it. I had to purge and sell them as I really dont have the taste for most of my mcfarlane spawn figs anymore. But this one is a shell of what the original looked like. I dont really like how he articulates his figures as well. Hopefully if he does any later spawn releases, they have better reworkings. Fingers crossed for santa spawn and gunslinger spawn!

I'm surprised Mcfarlane doesn't cut out the middle man and sell these directly on his website, especially considering his penchant for doing things his way. I guess it's easier for another retailer to sell and paying for getting the exclusives.

Hm thats interesting considering that Todd claimed Spawn figures weren't marketable to big chains

But these arent being sold AS Spawn figures. The first one was sold as a Mortal Kombat figure and this one I think will be sold as a Witcher figure. Thats likely why we aren't just getting a dedicated Spawn line. As for the  Gold Label Series, that is just how they are differentiating the regular release with the Walmart ones, but each figure will still be under their designated brand. For instance the McFarlane Batman will still be released under the DC Multiverse line, but the Walmart one will have an extra little gold foil label on the packaging.

Hm thats interesting considering that Todd claimed Spawn figures weren't marketable to big chains, Maybe this gold all star line that has different properties changed their minds, I wouldn't say I'm burning with desire for this Mandarin Spawn figure but I really would love to see some other classic spawn figures with new articulation, hopefully it sells well enough .

I think it's likely that the success of the Mortal Kombat Spawn figure(s) changed their minds.

Really nice looking figure, hopefully it'll be relatively easy to order at Walmart but I'm not holding my breath. So far I'm liking where the Gold Label line is going.

I really get the feeling that Todd is testing the waters for Spawn at retail with kind of a one-off (for now) individual release (and requisite Walmart exclusive) of an updated version of one of the old line's most popular figures.  I think the fact that it says "SPAWN" in the corner there and nothing about The Witcher or Mortal Kombat or any other property he doesn't own but merely has the rights may speak to that.

When was the red one announced, and where will it be available?

Todd talks about it in the video up above. The red one I am about 99% sure will be a general release which means everywhere that sells McFarlane figures.
