I've been rewatching this show on D+. It is so much better than I remembered. I think I'm all in on the line.

I proclaim this the Summer of Gargs!

Yeah, not NECA, but it’s still amazing to have found new Gargoyle merch at Target after all these years!

It is cool to see Disney finally doing something with the IP. It started with the Pops, and now we have a board game and Q-figs to go along with what NECA is doing. It's only a matter of time before Super7 does ReAction, right?

Haven’t set it up yet, but back of the box shows it as looking like this, it’s a set of dual sided cards that can be configured in different ways for the three games included.

You’ll definitely want this even if just for the figures, Whitehawk, they’re top notch!
Not as good as an actual war gaming mini, but lots of fine detail and great poses.

So Instead of everyone list the same characters over and over again…
1-Brooklyn
2-Lexington
3-Broadway
4-Hudson
5-Bronx
6-Angela (a shoe in since she’s to Demona what Thailog is to Goliath as far as reuse)

What two wild card characters do YOU want to fill the 2022 line up?!

My heart wants MacBeth and Elisa, my brain says Steel Clan and Armored Xanatos

I wonder if they’ll start releasing in pairs, at least. Otherwise, 8 seems pretty optimistic for one calendar year considering the global shipping situation is likely to get worse before it starts getting better.

Yeah, that’s great to hear that they have so many planned for next year, but it seems rather optimistic in the current environment.

Steel Clan and Xanatos make the most sense from an efficiency standpoint. Steel Clan + Xanatos head = Armored Xanatos. And a suited Xanatos gets us most of Owen and a start on Coyote as well.

I'm going to argue that Bronx will be considered an accessory rather than his own figure, which leaves room for Elisa as the last of the 8.

Also, Castle Wyvern playset when?

I'm expecting a mix of the obvious and some deep cuts... in other words, we won't have a complete Manhattan Clan next year but we'll have a few and some less obvious picks.

Predicting this is thinking like a toy company. These are for us, the adult collectors, but NECA is still going to get as much as they can out of their molds and and engineering. So what I definitely expect next year are:

Angela, because she'd require only a little bit of retooling... a new head, ditch the anklet and armband, etc. Demona's shirt is a separate piece so they can add Angela's tunic easily. But most of the work needed for Angela is already done.

Xanatos in his armor and a Steel Clan robot. Again, for obvious reasons. Just take the air pressure adjustment dial off of Xanatos's armor and repaint it and you have a Steel Clan robot. Change up the accessories, Xanatos can come with his helmet or an unhelmeted head while a Steel Clan robot can come with an alternate battle damaged head....

... also NECA would love to get a Steel Clan robot out there because it makes for a good army builder and some people will do that. I for one would love to have two flanking Xanatos.

Coldstone, Suited Xanatos (not Gargoyle suited, but business suited, although I want both!), Detective Maza, the Mutates, & the original Pack would be my top wants for now. But if they could make other Gargoyles from the original clan before they got destroyed, Demona's clan later, Avalon, England, Guatemala, & Japanese clans, we could get so many Gargoyles! The Hunter, Macbeth, Coldstone and his mate/enemy in Gargoyle form. SO MUCH! Bluestone, Draco...I'll stfu now, you only asked for 2. Coldstone & Suited Xanatos my top 2 wants (besides the entire clan + Maza because I KNOW they will happen) right now. I always wished Coldstone would've rejoined the clan...
