Your Quarter’s Worth Collector’s Edition:
Original SPAWN Action Figure Remastered
Sometime last spring, 5280 Geek editor extraordinaire, Kodid, was surfing the internets and stumbled across a Kickstarter campaign from none other than comic book/action figure legend Todd McFarlane.
McFarlane decided he was going to redesign his original 1994 SPAWN action figure. He was going to create a modernized version and a monochrome artist’s proof as well. They would all be two inches bigger than the original and McFarlane was going to crowd-source the whole endeavor.
The eccentric creator would offer individual versions of the updated classic collectible along with a trilogy option that would include bonuses for the discerning collector. McFarlane set a modest goal of $100,000 and let the chips fall where they may. . .
23,761 backers, nearly 3.5 million dollars, and almost a year later, “Trilogy” packages have begun arriving at homes stateside.
The following is a special collector’s edition of Your Quarter’s Worth. We’re chronicling the unboxing of the Trilogy. Enjoy.
The set wasn’t cheap. It cost us $189 after shipping. Individual, non-trilogy versions of each figure were also available at $40 each plus shipping. Those didn’t include the McFarlane autograph or all the extra accessories pictured above. Hopefully these three SPAWN figures will grow in value like some Tesla stock or Bitcoin. If not, we’ll have to have some epic action figure battles.
If you enjoyed this journey into the screaming mouth of geekdom as much as we did let us know in the comments below.
Until the next go round, stay geeky!
