PicsArt_11-10-10.53.29.jpgIt's Wednesday and you know what that means... ToyFarce review!

This week, we're taking a look at Goliath, from the new Gargoyles line by NECA. That one came from out of nowhere, and we couldn't be more happier about it. Remember, NECA just kinda dropped the announcement of Goliath in the middle of the night (or middle of the day for people in other timezones), and broke the internet. No fanfare, no teases before that. Basically, it was: "Here, we're doing Gargoyles now." Exciting!

The first impression is when you see the box, which is a third bigger than the usual boxes (TMNT, Back to the Future, Horror figures, etc). So when you see said box, you already know that Goliath is going to be a BIG BOY! The art on the front is gorgeous, an old classic promo picture from the 1994 series.

Then, when you open it (unless you're an in-box collector, and then you can stop reading here), all you can say is "Wow." Goliath is a beast of a figure. He comes with a couple of interchangeable hands, a book, a hot pepper and a second headsculpt which represents the face he does on the toilet the next day, after eating too much hot pepper (at least that is what we assume). The wing span is gigantic, and people were complaining about the lack of 'closed wings', or 'draped wings', and were already assuming that we'll get a re-release with the draped wings, but NECA has already put that all to sleep with the announcement of Bronx, which will come with Goliath's closed wings, and then, everyone rejoiced.

The articulations are what you usually get with NECA, and your figure might have to take a hot bath, but I personally didn't have any issue with them. The tail has a bendy metal wire inside so you can put it however you like, but the tail does kinda help keeping him standing up, since he is a bit top-heavy with the wings and has 'chicken legs', with the reversed articulation.

For any person who grew up in the 90's and watched the show when it first aired, this is pure nostalgia and it a no-brainer, you definitely will need it on your shelf. Looking forward to Demona, Bronx and all the others, along with the inevitable stone versions!

More news at 11:00... Stone by day, warriors by night, we are GARGOYLES!
