We Be Life-Size!

Wednesday, January 06, 2021

Happy New Year, Pathfinders! While it’s been nice to have a few weeks to spend with our families, we’re all back in the office* and ready to kick 2021 into high gear. What better way to usher in a follow-up to the year that shall not be named than with a life-size goblin figure from our partners at WizKids?

News of this monster** leaked over the summer, and we were coy about it in large part because we weren’t quite sure exactly how it was going to turn out. But WizKids took the entire pickle jar with this one, and we’re finally thrilled to be able to show it off.

While I could post some digital mock-ups of the goblin like we do with many of our miniature previews, that would hardly do justice to this marvel, so I asked Paizo’s Chief Creative Officer and Publisher, Erik Mona, to get a few pictures of the lone copy of the life-size goblin we have in the office*, which he’s jealously guarded since he first got ahold of it in September.

While goblins don’t write, that won’t stop them from reading, especially not from a book with such handsome illustrations accompanying the thought-stealing words.

And they say goblins don’t like dogs.***
Goblins are known for drinking or eating just about anything, so it’s no surprise our little buddy ushered in the new year with a few bottles of “goblin fire red”.****

This 3-foot-tall goblin figure is available now. We haven’t gotten them in the warehouse yet, and since they’re larger than anything we’ve ever shipped out before, we aren’t offering the ability to preorder them until we can provide accurate shipping costs on each order. We’ll be sure to let folks know when our allotted tribe arrives for not-setting-things-on-fire so that you can order them and put an end to their really-nothing-is-on-fire-we-swear shenanigans.

When your little bundle of mayhem shows up at your door (whether you order from us, your local retailer, or WizKids directly), be sure to post your own pictures of him among your pets, books, and adult beverages (for scale, of course) on social media and tag our official accounts. We might even collect the best ones and show them off in a gallery of gobliny goodness at a later date.

** by monster, I refer to its sheer size, rather than its status as a foe to be slaughtered by murder-hobo player characters
*** pug for scale
**** wine bottles also for scale (hic)

TBH I never found goblins particularly intimidating but seeing one in life-size would probably change that! This is spectacular, though I'm sure it's way out of my price range

Huzzah.
I would love this in my office!

He is glorious..... Imagine setting him on the table and telling the players he had been enlarged....

Ooooh! Nice! Gobbo Erikson!
I see Erik Mona had LOT of fun posing it! His precious child.


Pathfinder Rulebook Subscriber

This would be so fun!

That said, my interest is directly proportional to the pricing on this one. I don't really care about how to preorder or what shipping would look like at this point... I'm curious if I could even afford one.


listed on amazon for $600.


Yeah my LGS in Canada was willing to do for me for cost and it was still around 400$ at cost so I can only imagine what MSRP is. It's nice though definitely a collectors item. I know the WOTC dragon head on the plaque was fairly expensive as well. I'm still on fence whether I am going to purchase.


Seems like the ultimate white elephant, but to each their own. ;-)

Goblin has sword out already. The pug is ready to be the dinner.

I'm not so sure about that -- they actually seem to go together surprisingly well . . . almost as if this was a Goblin Ranger with a Pug Companion.

Is that strange looking Goblin Dog included too? ;)

If even a Level -1~+1 fantasy world foe looks that menacing IRL, maybe I should properly adjust my sense of determining how high the stakes are.

Unless you're playing 1st Edition still, goblins be absolutely terrifying.

I'm not saying I want this.. I'm saying I NEEED this.. Man I want to have one of these so badly.

I mean Goblin songs would be great to have to sing about, while working or running games.

A life sized Goblin is something I never knew I always needed until I saw Erik Mona hoist it up next to him on a Paizo Twitch stream.

I await the chance to have Gobbo-delivery to my door.

I absolutely love this!

And where do we get some Goblin Fire Red wine?!


Pathfinder Adventure, Adventure Path, Lost Omens, Rulebook Subscriber

You're all missing the real question.

When do we get rules for magic codpieces?

For that, I'm afraid, you need a time machine and to be a Paizo employee or Washington-based partner. We never sold it or distributed it out-of-state for a bunch of legal reasons.

how about just the head mounted on a piece of wood?


Any news on price and/or shipping? How about official release date?

The release dated was January 6, the date of this blog. Until it arrives in the warehouse and we can ship it, I don't have more data to share. I'll post updates when I do.
