For those uninitiated, the guys at Mystical Warriors of the Ring released their first super-sized minifigure last January to much success. Just as I warn in just about every drop, the first variant sold out quickly, the same day in fact, leaving a lot of collector's without a shiny green alligator.
But announced today, both off their website and their Instagram, Goliath is back and ready to rumble for round two, and this time, he's more sicker and twisted, with that ink black heart.
Well, maybe not that far, but this new metallic black colorway is very awesome indeed, especially if you have the other figures in the toy line metallic black as well, like the ones pictured.
Goliath's first release shocked a lot of people, but not me. Despite the early criticism I gave it, I had a strong feeling this guy would fly out of the MWOTR webstore, and he did just that, maybe even faster than I expected. I'm glad to see this variant allows collectors who missed the first drop to finally get in on some gator goodness, but like before, you have to be on point or else you're going to be watching this one sell out on you too.
Collectors were more than impressed with the metallic green colorway, which means there is a good possibility those same customers will be back for the new variant. I know I will be, so people who missed the metallic green need to be extra aggressive, even to the minute, when the release day comes around.
The exact time and day for the drop is slated for sometime next month, April, with also a showing at the Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo, so I'll post more exact info when I have it. It certainly sounds though, if you want it before anyone else, the MWOTR booth at C2E2 might be the place to be.
