Just watched the review and he looks great.
I feel a set of hard rubber bendy wings might be needed for these.Like those bendable figures.

I bought a rubber bat at Target last year that was bendy and it might make a big difference for this figure to have wings like that cuz those wings are huge!

Goliath is amazing, but the wings have become annoying. Just way too big, he looks magnificent, and his wings are great for on top of buildings or a castle, but not very good for indoors. It will be hard for him to be interacting with the rest of the Gargoyles as they can't come near him, and he doesn't fit into most dioramas because he's so big. It's like he's social distancing, keeping everyone 6 feet from him in all directions. Amazing figures, can't wait to get more, I'm sure we will get inevitable other wings on a future release or an accessory pack.

Here he is in the package.

Here he is out of the package with all of his accessories laid out.

I'm hoping we start seeing Target sightings soon. I have one pre-ordered through BBTS, but I would like to find one sooner.

Same. I wasn't going to cancel my BBTS order for a NECA direct one, but if I see one in-store and it looks good I'll probably pick it up.

Man if Randy can redo the Kenner Gargoyles Castle like the TMNT Building set,it would be so good for many different lines.

Grayskull is nice but very MOTU specific so a nice Castle diorama would be much appreciated from NECA.

I found Goliath at Target today. DPCI is 323075902. It probably won't be of much use though since Target doesn't enter these into inventory, but sometimes you can get lucky or at least find out if a store already sold them.

Thank you! Seems he’s hitting east coast so far, I’m in PNW so I doubt they have him here yet.

Anyone figure out a flight stand that works well with Goliath? I've got some SHF and NECA ones and neither worked particularly well, or really at all.

Why would you put this in my brain? I would likely buy multiples, since, as you say it can be used as a backdrop for SO many different properties. Sigh...

Well... A Demona is up for pre-order, just not the one we expected. LOL

I'd love to see castle backgrounds. Battlements, the Great Hall, etc. Not a remake of what Kenner did, but something a little more accurate to the show. It could only be bits and pieces, though.

You're mean. I thought it was going to be a stone or some other variant.

Hopefully that will be Demona in her daytime human form.
