Ready for some more older Spawn reviews? I hope so! The Toddfather can't get out new Spawn figures fast enough now to feed my obsession so I'm having to go back and snag vintage figures I missed as a kid. Today I'm checking out another series 3 figure from 1995: The Curse! The Curse is a character directly from the comic (so many figures were just crated for the toyline) who first appeared in issue #27 as an opponent of Spawn. A religious extremist intent on showing his dedication to God through ascetic practices, as a child The Curse removed his left eye and scarred his own face with the barbed wire from rusty metal fence. Then he removed his own right arm, later replacing it with an upgraded cybernetic arm. I was only 11 or 12 in 1995 and while I was mostly interested in Goosebumps books, Batman, Iron Man, and Congo action figures, Micro Machines, and Star Wars stuff, I definitely paid attention to what was coming out in the Spawn line. I kind of remember The Curse being a bit of a peg warmer back in the day. Heck, he didn't cost me much at all when I picked him up last month at Toy Federation in Greer, SC. Ready to check out the craziness of The Curse? Then join me after the break...
