    I am very happy to be getting him. He's the one really obscure character that I hoped would make it into the line. But, I have to say, I am disappointed by the design teams "adjustments" to the armor and to the head sculpt.

    The armor width, as we know, is a continuing issue that should have ended months ago.

    Now I see they made his cheeks gaunt, and changed the stern look to his brow. Also, his horns are darker gray, when before they were light gray.

    I will never understand why Ruben and his team think they can do a better job than the 4H in terms of the "look" of these characters.

    He is cool looking, except the armor looks too bulky.

    He looks awful--totally lame--obscure, unwanted--just the worst figure ever made.

    Everyone should boycott this waste of plastic.

    Especially since I need to army build the hell out of this mofo.

    So stoked about this guy... my kids loved him the golden books, "We need a Goatman Dad!" I know they will welcome him, I will most likely pick him up at NYCC, Strobo was easy peasy to get once the Monster High figure sold out. I hope that Mattel makes 2 lines at NYCC this year, one for Monster High, one for everything else!

    Really not sure why there are peg holes on the boots tho... I thought that was a thing of the past!

    I think they were trying to stay as faithful to the original design as possible. Since the original design had simple boots, they already had this tooled and scuplted, saving on cost of the figure. This is how they can squeeze in extra accessories or paint apps.

    I personally would have liked to have seen some kind of silver knee guards, maybe in an animal head (goat head?) instead of that staff.

    I meant the old pinned version is lame. I think they should have used the new version like on Plundor. The actual part is fine by me just version 2.0 would have been nice but as you say it's all about sqeezing the $

    I don't think he'll be at any cons until fall. I could be mistaken.

    Interesting and unexpected that people want to army build with the old goat.

    Goat Man is by far, my favorite traveling Con Exclusive and getting him will make up for the Unwanted One.
    "Evilseed with his MYP redesign dominated the poll pulling ahead with a massive lead."

    Has anyone made a video showing how to fix the bulky armour problem? I'd love to know how to sort it out.

    TG/Matty has stated that it will show up in very limited quantities on the site in April, but will be available at some conventions before that - they weren't more clear on if that includes NYTF or not.

    I can't wait for this guy. He is, along with Fang Man and Fearless Photog, part of the trio of characters I most wanted as a kid but never got produced.

    Rodster6 the only way I know is to trim off the tabs and crazy glue the armor1404423_683332765033856_1449199483_o.jpg or tunic to the chest or back of the figure so the ab crunch is still able to move.like what I did here for sea hawk.I also dremeled his underarm muscle as well

    With NYTF being more of a professional/media event than a fan event, I wouldn't expect him to be sold there. NYTF is more of a display of product to sell a concept/line to retailers and such than a way to sell to collectors and fans so, I believe, there aren't really any sales going on there for anything.

    Everytime I see this thread I get a smile on my face, because I remember that we're FINALLY getting a figure I've wanted since I was a little kid learning to read with the Super Adventure books!

    Im considering painting on some red to areas on his neck, shoulder & forearms. To give him that hairy or fading in look to his detail. Kinda like clawful fading paint detail.
