, and you know what that means: ToyFarce review
This week we're having a look at the gorgeous Deluxe Spawn and Throne set
from McFarlane Toys
. It's nice to see more Spawn
figures hitting the shelves, and this one is a beautiful (and ingenious!
) offering. The whole thing with the cape not being complete to look good on the chair made a few people mad, but you can't argue with the result... It looks so damn good
This Deluxe set
comes in a big box with a window, so you can see Spawn
and his throne
next to each other. There's some awesome Greg Capullo
art in the back. It nearly
makes you want to keep it in the box doesn't it? *Nearly
comes in 2 parts for it to fit in the packaging, with the top part being a separate part so that it fits in a smaller box (#smart
is your basic Spawn
figure, like the Mortal Kombat
one, but without cape (reminding me of the movie Spawn figures, a bit). The "top of the cape
" part can be attached to it with a peg. There's also a bit of cape on the throne.
The figure in itself looks great. It re-uses lots of parts from the Mortal Kombat
Spawn figure (minus the cape, duh
). He has a kind of darker blue shade
, compared to the usual black/very dark grey, which makes him pop a bit more. The whites on the suit are also brighter. The small details in the sculpt are all there. Articulations are good, similar to that MK Spawn
(no thigh swivels, unfortunately). You can attach the "top of the cape
" part to it and he looks kinda silly, but the second you sit him on that throne: Wow!
That thing has presence
. It will look great on any shelf. I remember liking the older McFarlane Toys Spawn on a throne
figure, but it was basically a statue. This one, you can play with, add things in his hands, tweak the pose, etc.
