I gotta give NECA credit. Their cartoon TMNT are more appealing to me than the actual show, and I'm impressed at how far they've gone with it. And now the same thing may be happening with Gargoyles. Although I actually did enjoy the Gargoyles show, even though I don't remember much of it.

The whole series is on Disney+ (though season 3 is non-canon and terrible) so if you want to refresh your memory the series is super accessible

Yeah, the showrunners and most of the crew were replaced after the second season. Greg Weisman wrote one script for the third season (the first one) and then he was removed as well.

It's good to know, but I'm not a Disney+ subscriber. Maybe some day I'll do a free trial and just binge the shit of stuff.

Exactly Same feelings here. They have proved to be really good at bringing all franchises and memories back to life, even stronger that when i was a kid experiencing them for the first time, now if figure form...is funny, surprising and extremely satisfying!Image

I will add: those lines got me wanting to refresh the whole shows, but i actually find myself preferring not to do it. i am afraid that watching it with grown eyes makes me losing interest in the figure collection

Strange feelings, i know, i know...Image

I understand it, but Gargoyles actually holds up quite well, as well as Batman: The Animated Series; I think.

Gargoyles has a few 90s-isms, and can be a touch awkward but has terrific character arcs and payoffs and details adults can enjoy too.

Plus it's only 2 seasons! I'd say rewatch it.

Gargoyles absolutely holds up. I came to it as an adult since I missed it when it was airing. The plotting and foreshadowing is fantastic. It plays some really long games that absolutely are worth the wait.

That wingspan is glorious.

I have been rewatching the show with my kid. It's much better than I remembered. Probably because of watching it in order for the 1st time. I would kinda like to see a Gargoyle Elisa, Coldstone prior to the cyborg version and a even Werewolf version of Fox.

That looks amazing but I hope they start doing curved in wings (below). These are gonna be hard to display together with flight wings.
