Experience the Online Comic, Action Figures, and Soon: The Book

With the 30th series of Spawn action figures, Todd took everything we knew about the Spawn mythos, shook it up, and came up with something entirely new. Taking inspiration from Saturday morning cartoons and the comic books of another era, Spawn 30 became streamlined, and the results were nothing short of sensational.

At last, as our special holiday gift for our devoted legion of Spawn addicts we bring you photos of this much-anticipated line -- six all-new action figures (four making their action figure debut, two offering brand-new representations of fan-favorite characters) created in the hyper-detailed fashion McFarlane Toys is known for.

Todd's projects, in addition to the release of several high-profile action figure lines has kept us in the headlines, right where we like to be! Here is a list of media coverage, and links to some of the highlights of our year.

Fans Flock to Meet The Inspiration for Spawn

Al Simmons' Wal-Mart personal appearance in Albuquerque proved to be a big hit. With some of the area's top radio stations promoting the event, a devoted following came for the chance to meet the man who inspired Spawn. Not only did Wal-Mart sell out of all of their Spawn figures, they were also able to raise money for the Children's Miracle Network by auctioning off autographed exclusives.
