    Heck, why buy and return it? If you’re gonna be the guy who does that sort of thing, just be up front about it and straight-up shoplift the accessory. Same thing, and you save yourself a trip back to Target.

    Either way, he's a douchebag.

    I think he's just pointing out NECA's possibly poor decision to only include the folded wings with a variant (if true) and that just encourages douchebags more to pull this crap in stores, either returning him as "defective" without the wings or outright stealing them from the package.

    Just a heads up, at the Walmart in Puyallup, WA today I found the Ultimate Genesis Goliath for a whopping $25. So if you're looking for one you may want to see if your store nearby have him dropped in price drastically.

    That said I'm not sure what to think of the spread wings being hard plastic. It means they'll never droop, but God help him if/when another earthquake hits my region...

    I got Demona for $15 at Walmart a few months ago. The box was a little dinged up and the face had fallen off and was bouncing around in the package, so they figured it was defective and put it on discount. When I opened it, I noticed that the face was a bit on the loose side, but certainly not a deal-breaker, especially for $15.

    Wasn't Target supposed to have a Haulathon a couple of weeks ago? I haven't seen anything new in the NECA department in months.

    The only thing new in the Haulathon for Target is Broadway in his detective disguise, which also comes with his folded wings.

    Yeah, I think the choice to not do fully poseable wings is going to lead this line to be cut short.

    If anyone in Europe is collecting these, do you have tips on where to get them? I see BBTS is one option but I wonder if there are others.

    I just want to say it's crazy that this thread is active again and I had started rewatching the show a few weeks ago.

    the time has come to say good-bye...

    to stuff!

    I'm shedding some 1994-era Gargoyles toys to new homes...most are in pretty good condition other than a scratch or blob in the paint (the one exception is the Battle doubles Bronx with a mis-repaired wing joint)...all come with cardbacks and original inserts

    At this point, I'm only buying whichever figures come with Hudson's and Broadway's cloaked wings (and I mean a human character not Broadway redone) and then I'm done. These figures were a waste of money.

    Funny, as I was pretty hard on this line at the start, but now when I look at them all up on the shelf I’m glad I got them. I love Gargoyles and they look great all lined up together. I just hope we get at least Owen and Macbeth.

    Just wish we had the half-closed wing options. I still say NECA could release those as a huge pack and they’d sell like crazy.

    I absolutely adore what I've gotten so far, too. I love the show and am so glad to have gotten a modern toyline of these characters.
