    Any qc issues?

    He's probably in my top 10 of the year.

    No, not because of qc issues, but I can't fit him on my shelf, there isn't another figure out for several months and it's just a repaint, so I've got him sitting in his package until I can actually display him.

    A little honestly, which sucks with how much I was looking forward to him...

    The wing options are a big one, they're really excessively big.

    But also the usual NECA shit where everything is painted, so screws up joints. Hips on mine have been shedding paint nonstop and they're still super tight despite how much has come out. Probably need to get some shock oil in there.

    And then the sculpt limiting what you can do with the arms a whole lot was also disappointing.

    Try a hot water bath first and see if that loosens things up!

    Maybe, he's pretty damned good. I've got him sitting on top of my Detolf right now proudly displayed. His cloaked wings are coming soon so that'll help with space issues. But it's nice to have options.

    Yeah, Goliath is a little lonely right now. But I'm sure feelings will change once more are released. A year from now, assuming these keep doing well, imagine how it will look when we have the main clan, Elisa Maza, Demona, Xanatos in his armor, a Steel Clan robot, Macbeth...

    Was it Bronx or Hudson I'd seen teased with the folded wings for Goliath coming with them? Hopefully the others will get wing options too. Mostly in just hoping for a UK release and the steel clan

    Dorkside finally shipped my Goliath four days ago but the FedEx tracking they gave me doesn’t work.

    Feeling more and more like I got scammed.

    I got a shipping notice for Goliath as well. The shipment is in California already, so hopefully I get it tomorrow or the day after.

    If the tracking doesn't update by the end of the day I'm gonna email them. Because they charged up front and delayed it for so long I don't think I can file a PP dispute if it turns out to be a scam. (I think it's within 60 days after payment is made)

    Hopefully yours does arrive soon. That would assuage my concerns a bit.

    Mine should be here tomorrow. Does the number not even register or is it more of a lack of update? Mine took a while to update since it was shipped on Saturday and didn’t get picked up by FedEx until yesterday afternoon. If the number doesn’t even register, i would say to contact them to check in with them.

    Dorkside is legit, I really don't think they'd scam you. FedEx is just kinda fucked right now.

    That sucks.
    Saying that, iirc I had a similar instance a time or two with FedEx and the shipment DID come through. I suggest contacting Dorkside and letting them know about the issue with a request to confirm the order and shipment. If nothing else, that way you show due diligence on your part if there's a dispute.

    I contacted DS a few days ago and they assured me the number was valid, and sent me a link to FedEx’s site with working tracking. However if I copy the tracking number down and enter it on that same site, it says it’s invalid. Worse, when I enter in on Canada Post’s site, it works, but says the package is coming from Sweden.

    I have the distinct feeling I just lost a chunk of money. :/ None of this seems correct.

    I'm with you on this. He feels really dated to me.

    He's very jointy, especially the elbows and space around the abdomen. I get early Toybiz ML figure vibes from him. The plastic they use has a weirdly brittle feeling too it too.
    Sylistically something seems off with his proportions, and they really overdid the pronounciation of the muscles, which the cartoon design really did have.

    All in all, not a bad first attempt and happy to have a good Goliath, but I think he's far from figure of the year for me.

    I received my Dorkside shipment the other day with Goliath in it. I can't explain how the tracking number works when in their link but not elsewhere though.
