Mystical Warriors of the Ring: Metallic green Evolution Goliath


A short while ago I posted about the fantastic Mystical Warriors of the Ring Evolution Goliath PVC figure, which so far was only briefly available last Fall in limited, brown-colored test shot versions. Back then, the color and exact release date of the actual production pieces were not yet revealed. Now, the time is finally almost here for Goliath to bust his way into everyone's collections, and he'll be looking better than ever in a stunning metallic emerald green!

According to the latest post on the MWOTR blog, the full production run of the figures will be in hand early the week of January 26th, so keep an eye on that site then for details of when you'll be able to grab one in their online store. The figures will cost $6 each.

In the meantime, I wanted to share some photos of the piece—which MWOTR's main man, Mark Vasquez, kindly sent over early for review. As I mentioned in the older post, Evolution Goliath makes use of the Glyos system, so it's made up of multiple pieces that can be taken apart and put back together, with articulation at the neck, arms, wrists, tail and thighs. You can put it into tons of different poses. Plus, the brilliant metallic green color really suits the character and allows all the details and personality of the sculpt to really pop. This all adds up an even more fun and appealing figure than the original urethane version, which was part of the set that introduced the line 2013. I'd say Evolution Goliath is a must-have toy!

Do you plan on picking one up?
