ToyFarce News: Real Reason Why Spawn Action Figures Came Back in 2021!

SHOCKING REVELATION! During a recent interview with Spawn, we asked what led to the return of a Spawn line of action figures in 2021, and it turns out it was... jealousy? Spawn action figures had been a staple of McFarlane Toys since the very beginning, so when they got the DC Comics license and started to produce more Batman figures than Spawn, something had to be done!

During a recent interview with Spawn, we talked about the 90's, when Spawn was one of the biggest things in the world of comic books, selling millions of issues, but also in action figures and collectibles, with the launch of McFarlane Toys (which was called 'Todd Toys' at the time). "I have very fond memories of that period. People knew I was the G.O.A.T. Comics, animated series, a movie, action figures... You couldn't go to any comic book store without seeing Spawn."

From 1994 to 2008, over 34 waves of Spawn action figures were produced. It would then take years before we would see another Spawn action figure... "Those were dark times, to say the least. Some say I, Spawn, had saturated the market, and it was just a good business decision to lay low for a while. There had been too many Spawn figures..."

Enter DC Comics: In late 2019, McFarlane Toys announced that they acquired the DC Comics license and would produce action figures of acclaimed DC superheroes, starting in 2020. "That's where it started to bug me... In January 2020, McFarlane Toys announced the first wave of DC Multiverse figures. In that first wave, there were already 3 Batman figures (4 if you count the Batman who Laughs!). Then another wave was announced, with another Batman. Then another..."

In March 2020, the first Spawn figure in years was announced as part of the Mortal Kombat 11 line. "I had to come back, but I had to be smart about it. I had to test the waters first... but after 3 different releases of that same figure, with different weapons, we knew it was time". McFarlane Toys would then announce a return to Spawn, with a Kickstarter campaign of the very first Original Spawn figure REMASTERED... followed later by a new line of Spawn action figures.

Even though there are still tons of Batman figures being produced, there are now tons of Spawn figures being produced as well. Since the first figure, we have had several different flavors of the Mortal Kombat Spawn, a Gunslinger Spawn, a Mandarin Spawn, a Ninja Spawn, a Spawn with a throne, a Nightmare Spawn, an Omega Spawn,... and soon a King Spawn! "We even buried the hatchet with Batman and a comic book and an action figure 2-pack with both of us came out! Everything is as it should be."

The next obvious step will be a Jokerized version, to steal the show.
