Sorry to break up the Conan fun but I went over to see what was going on with Mezco today and noticed Gomez of Death is now sold out from waitlist. My order hasn't been canceled though. Anyone know if thats just a matter of time or if that means the waitlist is closed and will be will be?

Mine is on order from Dorkside, so hopefully he'll get here before too long. Definitely hyped to team him up with my Red Sonja.

Wow, looks great. I hope it meets the expectations of everyone who has been waiting for him, and then some.

Ahh yeah, this is the Conan I've been waiting for! Looks fantastic, looking forward to seeing pics with the other head sculpts. Mine is coming from BBTS, so I'll have to live vicariously through these pics for now.

My Conan has not charged yet (BBTS), but I'm guessing any day now. Looking at those few in-hand pics we're seeing.... [email protected]#$. Am I a massive hypocrite if I say that I will probably buy more Mezco Conan figures if they make them?

Got an update. Conan has been received by FedEx. I'm assuming Monday or Tuesday delivery. Very excited.

Damn, that looks way better to me than the promo pics.

Hope my wait list converts! I’ll likely just grab him on eBay if it doesn’t once he starts to saturate. There is a possibility one of the local stores will get him too.

Overall, he's great. There are some things that aren't as advertised though.
The cloak is very different. It's a waist length, drawstring setup. I would personally have preferred the one in the promos.
The chains on his secondary loincloth are real as opposed to the sort of scale sheet in the promos. I prefer what we got. The loincloths are elastic waistbands and getting them on and off is easy enough but a tad worrisome.

His posability is great but the arms are a bit limited. The delay definitely wasn't to fix that. He can get 90 degrees out of the elbows but can manage to dual wield in a limited way. Double jointed elbows and butterfly joints would've made it perfect.

I don't like the way the weapons attach to the belt. They no longer have full chains, just short ones with a hoop at the bottom of the sheath and just a hoop at the top. Then there's a double ended plastic hook to attach them to the hoops on the belt. They hang too low and without the chains, you can't sling them over the shoulder. The dagger just has a thread loop on it...no way to store it as far as I can tell. (Edit: the belt can go through the loop. It's a bit fiddly but it can be worked round to the front of the belt. )

Paint is excellent (except on the necklace, no white on the skull and claws/teeth, just unpainted brown. Guess they ran out of time), the sheaths look beautiful and his eyes are blue and piercing and his teeth don't look mental.

Overall, I'm pleased. No reason I can see for the wait. 22 months!? [email protected]#$ silly.

Looks fantastic. I'm SOL as far as getting in on the pre-orders before they dried up. I'm on the wait list sadly. I know this is a regular release so it should eventually be available somewhere at retail... but I can already feel myself paying whatever mark up there is before its saturated. lol I want this figure.

Do I regret passing on a character I know next to nothing about? Yes.

Can I just copy and paste this for every Mezco release?

I am curious to see if the heads and accessory fit on the Vtoys body
