Long-Awaited Action Figures Change Retail Direction
Friday, April 23, 2004

The second Spawn two-pack (following the Manga Robot set) announced several months ago has been slightly delayed as retail plans for the item have changed. WalMart -- the initial retailer -- has chosen not to take the product.

Our sales department has been working feverishly to find a way to get these items into stores as soon as possible. We are close to working out a deal with another retailer; those details should be available very soon. We can tell you that a small amount of this item will be available for direct purchase through the Store at at the same time they're available at retail.

The Samurai Warriors set features a refreshed version of Samurai Spawn from Spawn Series 19 and the never-before-released Takeda the Archer figure.

Samurai Spawn features a new paint job that is brighter than the original, utilizing more primary colors. Includes battle sword and back-mounted battle standard. This figure also features a resculpted head and helmet with mask.

Takeda the Archer is the human version of Samurai Spawn and has never before been released. Includes full Samurai battle armor and bow. For more information on the Samurai Spawn mythos, go here.

Stay tuned for more details as they're available.
