March 25, 2021
NECA around midnight last night came out of left field with a surprise announcement that they would be doing 7" figures based on the classic 90's Disney Gargoyles animated series. For those not familiar with the series, despite being a Disney property was known at the time for having a fairly dark tone and told the story of ancient nocturnal creatures who were living in modern New York City. By day they would be stone statues and by night would come alive. While technically made for kids, the stories often would be based on Shakespearean themes. The show ran for 3 seasons and contain a total of 78 episodes.

While NECA has not yet released any specific details, the teaser images they released show us they are doing a fairly detailed and articulated figure of the leader character named Goliath which looks like will come with two different headsculpts. Check out the images below and stay-tuned for more details on this as they become available.

If you have Disney+, you can watch episodes from the series there.

I agree, I really watched the series again on Disney + and with the exception of some things here and there, it holds up really well. As for the figures, Demona is a step in the right direction.

We watched it again recently (first time for the wife and the first time I watched the whole thing straight through). It did hold up quite well. And then my wife got the privilege of stopping after season 2, sparing her the awkward, uncomfortable, and jarring experience of having to watch the first episode of The Goliath Chronicles like I did 25 years ago before I gave up on that $#!&.

It was far better produced for sure. Had a more mature storyline and everything. Problem was TMNT was made to sell a crap ton of toys and tmnts mass appeal went through the roofwith all products related to them. Gargoyles couldve went much farther than disney pushed it and I think they didnt know what they had.

This show was always better than tmnt. At least when I was a kid it seemed like it was. Had a cinematic feel to it.

Stay-tuned for more details as they become available.

Love the retro toy commercial, haha. These figures look great.

Demona oh man, amazing, sad thing is so far Canada won't be getting these, they won't be distributed here, so several retail sources have said, this is a sad thing, I'm hoping on that changing because man I want Gargoyle figures.

Hey @nieman257 . Care to help me out? I am so curious as to the storyline where these characters came from. Who's the Big Bad? And is he/she larger than this character where they based this first figure NECA is releasing? Is he/she a Gargoyle too? Sorry for the questions. I don't have Disney+, only Netflix. Maybe someday I'll buy the DVD or Bluray collection.

One other thing to add to @nieman257's greatnswer: the lead character is voiced by Keith David (actor from THEY LIVE, THE THING), Xanatos & Demonia arevoiced by Star Trek Next Gen actors Jonathan Frakes and Marina Sirtis. Pretty good series; I'm sure a lot of fans saw hints of Tony Stark in Xanatos.

I loved that black and red 'copter!

This was a Disney cartoon from '94. It had a lot of mythology pulled in from different sources (Norse, Greek, African, Shakespeare etc), about a group of gargoyles that slept for 1000 years, and are now awake in modern NYC. It had serialized story arcs, so if something happened in one ep..even if hinted...it came up again.

The main villain/ally is a billionaire named Xanatos. He's just a regular businessman in a suit, but later built a Goliath sized exo suit. The other main villain is a female gargoyle named Demona, that was once in their clan. They make many more friends and enemies throughout the show. I don't want to spoil too much, if you're going to watch, but the villains vary in size from humans, to mutants, to gargoyles, robots, cyborgs, Gods...Through the 65 (or 78 depending on how you count) episodes, they could TMNT Cartoon the line...and get their money worth. You could easily get up to 100 characters with recurring roles, or looks.
