10. Spawn V from Series 17 

At Ten we need a really good example of the standard Spawn design.

We could have gone for the first ever Spawn and his plank with a nail in it but it’s just too basic and too close to the output of Toy Biz in the early 90s.

Could also have chosen Spawn V from Series 17 but instead the later variation Spawn I.095 from Series 25 the Classic Comic Covers 2  constitutes a vibrant and statuesque representation of what most people think of when you say “Spawn”. 

9. DOMINA SPAWN SERIES 20: SPAWN CLASSIC SERIES 2

At Nine Angela the demon hunting angel is pretty darned essential to this line.

However as her first incarnation in plastic was like Spawn 1 pretty basic we’ve gone with the later figure of another angel, Domina from 2001.

based on the work of Batman penciller Greg Capullo. 




8. Santa Spawn from Series 24

At Eight for sheer novelty value and the smashing together of two things in diametric opposition we have Santa Spawn from Series 24.

Guaranteed to find out whether you’ve been naughty or nice and dole out appropriate presents



7. Hellspawn from Series 25 

At Seven there are a lot of gun-toting Spawn figures but we picked Hellspawn from Season 25 the Classic Comic Covers 2 again, this time based on the art of Ashley Wood.

A far cry from the classic version in our number ten spot, this one is grim and charcoal shaded, replicating the cover of Hellspawn issue 5, complete with an antique steampunk canon


6. Cy-Gor Series 30

At Six there are plenty of Cy-Gor figures, all of them absolutely cool, but the anime-inspired one in Series 30 really needs to be made a fuss of.

As with most of the McFarlane figures this one has no articulation but makes up for that with sculpted shelf-candy attitude. 









5. 12-inch Gunslinger Spawn

At Five creeping along like some kind of crazy combination of a voodoo priest and Dante from Devil May Cry comes Gunslinger Spawn rendered twelve inches high in 2005.

This is perfectly emblematic of how versatile this character is. Just like Batman he can be adapted into virtually any costume or setting with imaginative, visually impressive results. 



4. Manga Spawn from Series 9

On that note at Four one of my all-time favourites is Manga Spawn from 1997’s Series 9.

This guy has awesome Gundam styling, foldable insect wing backpack, hanging belt chains, a wicked arm blade an enormous sword with kanji decoration and if you clip off his helmet a burned and furious Al Simmons face pops into place.

It’s pretty much perfect.

3. Spawn VII Series 21

At Three a statue assured to make you feel more cultured, as well as being rather beautiful in its own dark and shadowy way.

It’s a seated Spawn VII regarding a skull in the manner of Hamlet from 2002’s Series 21.

If you want something to commemorate that brooding phase of your life you can’t get more appropriate than this combination. 





2. 12-inch Mandarin Spawn 

At Two, one of the all-time most sought after and beloved Spawns, the absolutely stunning 12” Mandarin Spawn from the Dark Ages series.

This is one of those figures that crosses the line into fully fledged art with surprisingly delicate colour shading, and such minutely intricate sculpting you’ll be finding new details for years to come.

This isn’t so much a figure as a way to transform your desk into a museum piece.




1. Sam and Twitch Series 25 Classic Comic Covers 2 

How could that possibly be at two and not one? What’s better than 12” Mandarin Spawn? For this final tough decision of number One we honed in on the heart of the Spawn comics.

Not Simmons himself but buddy cop duo Sam and Twitch, represented here in Season 25’s Classic Comic Covers 2 with its third instalment in this list.

Again this is based on the artwork of Ashley Wood, which you wouldn’t think would translate so wonderfully to a 3D model.

The detail gives the impression of rough, yet expert clay sculpting and despite or possibly because of the obvious stylization these seem the most human, relateable characters, every crease and crumple speaking of working men out of their depth.
