How Much Articulation Will The New Spawn Figure Have From McFarlane?!?

by Jay Cochran

Ever since news broke the other week that McFarlane Toys was planning on doing a new Spawn figure, many of you have asked how much articulation will it have? This weekend we got out first look at the new figure, but most of the articulation had yet to be added on it. So the burning question still remains, how articulated will Spawn be?

If you have ever heard Todd McFarlane talk about articulation, you probably know he is not a big fan of it unless it can be hidden within the figure. You see Todd is an artist first and foremost, so the look of the figure is probably the most important thing to him when it comes to a final product, and there is no denying that McFarlane has created some beautiful looking figures and statues over the years. That being said, for many figure collectors articulation is also important, so where do you draw the line (no pun intended)?

We got a chance to talk to Mr. McFarlane this weekend at the New York Toy Fair, and of course one of the topics to come up was articulation. We will be posting a full interview with him in the next day or so, but for now I wanted to touch upon the Spawn figure and how much articulation it will likely have. Todd was unable to give us a definitive answer about Spawn, because the figure has not been finalized. He did however go over with me the areas he thought he could sneak in articulation and not ruin the look of it.

Shown below is an image of the new Spawn figure that was on display at Toy Fair. The 7" figure will be released under their new "Color Tops" line of figures which will encompass most of their 7" figure offerings. The figures will come in standardized window box packaging. If you are wondering why the line is being called "Color Tops," check back in a few days for the McFarlane interview and hear him explain it.

Anyway Todd was thinking Spawn would likely have somewhere in the neighborhood of 9-12 points of articulation. Better than a statue, but certainly a little disappointing for you articulation junkies out there who like to pose your figures as much as possible.

After talking with McFarlane about the articulation, I took our image and added some highlighted marks on Spawn to indicate the areas I thought articulation could be added, and yet not ruin the overall look of the figure. Places like the knees, elbows and shoulders might be a bit tricky to hide, but essential for any action figure that is to have the ability of being posed. While I am no action figure designer, I estimate you could fit about 15 points and not drastically effect the overall look of the figure.



What do you think, would 9-15 points of articulation be enough incentive for you to buy a new Spawn figure?
