    But then those guys (well at least Gabriel) will need folded wings and it'll never end... ;)

    I have to admit that I’ve never displayed Demona with her wings at all…can’t say I even notice they aren’t there, lol…

    Whoa why does your Demona look like she has huge boobs? Is it the angle? I have mine displayed up high and never noticed that.

    Interesting of NECA to be so… detailed. :lolol

    It's not. She's been "modified" by someone...

    It's no wonder why he doesn't notice the wings aren't there. :lol

    Says it isn't being sold in stores. That's weird given stores have price tags for it.

    I think that just means that you can't order online for in store pickup. The turtle drops had the same language and are definitely in stores.

    This isn't an exclusive, right? Or is it a timed exclusive?

    Broadway still up, free shipping:

    Neca Gargoyles Detective Broadway "silver Falcon" With Closed Wings 7" Scale Action Figure : Target

    I had $12 in Target Circle points, so came out to around $25 for me. Not bad when I only want the closed wings. Probably will keep all the food accessories and dump the figure at the local toy shop for a measly sum of credit.

    I have less than zero interest in one off episode characters, not as invested in Gargoyles as something like TMNT, and space is at a premium on my shelves.

    The fact the listing says “with closed wings” shows that NECA knows what they are doing here, lol.

    Once Broadway arrives my only “need” will be Hudson’s folded wings. I’m open to Goliath face upgrades - the Demona/Goliath 2-pack looked to have some new expressions/face sculpts but outside of that I’m pretty set with my gargoyles crew, Elisa, Xanatos, Demona, and the Steel Clan

    Yup, same. Hudson’s closed wings and I’m done. Might get Coldstone and Owen.

    Going to be interesting to see how NECA keeps this line going. With TMNT, every so often they can wheel the turtles back out and the main villains as they sell out. But it’s still super easy to get any Gargoyles character you want, sometimes even on sale, so they can’t keep refreshing the core cast.

    I remember everyone being so hyped when Goliath was announced but it’s like it lost steam the longer it went. There are many more characters to do but will they sell? Seems like the TMNT cartoon stuff does just due to being Target exclusive for the most part.

    Just glad we got a full main cast plus Xanatos and Eliza.

    I still say NECA should do packs of the semi-closed wings. Folded wings take up less space but look worse, and TBH they usually had their wings open and “upright” behind their backs.

    If anything the fully open wings should’ve been the bonuses in with other figures and the Gargoyles themselves should’ve all come with the partially open ones.

    It’s such a bizarre decision, right? The guys who made these collect figures themselves. Did no one ever stop to think “Man, let’s check how these would look in a display most collectors have.”

    The half open wings would have been great!

    I value Gargoyles far more than I do TMNT, but I've come to realize I would rather buy NECA's TMNT line than Gargoyles line. In fact, I've come to regret buying everything I have. Whichever characters come with Hudson's folded wings and Broadway's (I refuse to believe they are going to force people to buy a second Broadway for the wings), the I'm done.

    The wings should have been done the same with Hasbro just did Angel's wings.

    Also hoping for a wings pack with open but folded wings.

    As for everything else... I am all in on this line for as long as it lasts. Every character from the first two seasons and the SLG and Dynamite comics, if they make them I'll buy them.

    Let's see what variants are left for characters already released.

    Goliath - None, really. They could do Eye of Odin Goliath, but that would need to be a HUGE deluxe figure.
    Elisa Maza - You could do Elisa in one of her undercover outfits. Either pretending to be a crooked cop in Protection or "Salli" in Turf. There's also Elisa in her Halloween costumes. Belle in 1995, Jasmine in 1996, and Alice in 1997.
    Hudson - You could do the younger Hudson from the Dark Ages comic.
    Brooklyn - His Future Tense and comic look, which would involve an alternate head with an eyepatch. He had two Halloween costumes: A pirate in 1995 and "Supergoyle" in 1996 (but lawyers might have a problem with that one.
    Broadway - Again, only Halloween costumes, and we have Detective Broadway already. 1996, the Cowardly Lion and in 1997 Charlemagne.
    Lexington - Cyborg Lexington from Future Tense and Alexander the Great from Halloween 1997.
    Angela - Also Halloween costumes: Dorothy in 1996 and Antiope the Amazon in 1997.
    Demona - Okay, theres a few we could do. Future Tense Demona, Shredded Wedding Dress Demona, Human Demona, Dominique Destine, and whatever form she takes (assuming her form changes) at the end of this current arc when she gathers the Three New Keys to Power.
    David Xanatos - You could do Xanatos in his Iron Clan armor (the gray varient when Oberon attacked), or the more compact suit of armor.
    Thailog - Armored Thailog is a no-brainer and the version that we should have got.

    Now for characters we know are coming:

    Coldstone - You could do an Othello variant.
    Macbeth - You could do an 11th century variant.

    As for what's left? A ton!

    Category:Canon characters - GargWiki

    Now, in my wildest dreams we only get a fraction, but there's a lot there that would make for great action figures.

    Believe it — the wings for Broadway come with a Broadway variant, lol. This is classic NECA imo, I wasn’t surprised at all.

    I know right now he comes with the wings, but I mean which other figure is going to come with them.

    Otherwise, they're telling me to buy a Broadway, take teh wings, and then return the toy to Target as Defective Broadway.
