This is an INDEX, not a SALES LIST. Eclipse went out of business in 1994; these items are no longer in print and will not be reprinted. Comics Warehouse sold its stock of Eclipse comics in 2002 and stopped carrying back issues for any comics in 2006 when Claypool Comics became web-based in its production and sales.

PLEASE DO NOT E-MAIL ME ASKING IF ECLIPSE ITEMS ARE "POSSIBLY STILL IN STOCK." They are NOT. Truly. Really.

POGS

TODD McFARLANE'S SPAWN SPOGZ

The hottest collectible of 1993 -- and the only authorized Spawn foil-packs -- Todd McFarlane's SPOGZ! This is a complex group of collectibles, so please read carefully:

(Group 1: The Proto-Spogz)
As originally issued, there were 5 unvarnished "proto-Spogz" -- convention giveaways -- that came out before the official set. Three of these bore Spawn images, with art by Todd McFarlane; the other two promoted Eclipse Comics and Larry Marder's Tales of the Beanworld comics.

(Group 2: The Official 54 cap Spogz set)
As originally issued, there were 54 different images on 1 5/8" dia. caps, with art by Todd McFarlane. They were sold in random-assorted foil wrappers (12 Spogz in each) packed with two kinds of trading-card-size insert sheets. Insert #1 contained a checklist of all the 54 Spogz and an ad for the Spogz binder (see below). Insert #2 gave Pog game instructions & had an ad for the Platinum Pog (see below). The foil packs came in display boxes.

(Group 3: Limited Edition Add-Ons
By sending in the trading-card-size inserts (see above), fans could purchase two limited edition add-ons: (A) A green 3-ring binder embossed with the official yellow and orange Spawn logo, and inside, 3 20-pocket pog sleeves hold each one of the SPOGZ in the 54-SPOGZ set. (B) A limited edition, sculpted metal "Platinum Pog" (actually made of nickel) bearing the image of Spawn in detailed, coin-quality relief.

(Group 4: Bonus Prism Products)
As originally issued, each full case of display boxes contained within its foil packs one limited edition subset of 6 prism caps (P-1 through P-6), a prism cap version of the metal "Platinum Pog" ( M-1), and a Toddface slammer to play the game, depicting Todd McFarlane in Spawn's costume. Packed into each case, where the retailer could find it easily, there was also a prism board to hold the subset of caps P1-6 and M-1. These bonus products were never sold to the public. The prism caps were inserted in random foil packs and the prism board was given to retailers as part of an incentive program for increased orders. These Bonus Products are the rarest of the Spawn Spogz collectibles.
