Or could someone get me a set at the NYCC?

WOW! Personally I've never bothered getting any other figures that the Turtles themselves, but these I am seriously considering getting, they look absolutely awesome! Also since they've been in the making for such a long time. Awesome news I must say! Now if NECA could just release those giant size versions of the Turtles and I'm forever pleased! =)

These are glorious. Now I don't feel so foolish for asking on Instagram whether we'd ever see these officially released -- something about the arrival of the SDCC set told me we might. I was promptly laughed off on the Internet.

But now what do you say, random Instagram guy? Huh?

NOW WHAT DO YOU SAY.

I'd buy so many of these if they released them as single carded figures in stores though and I know most of you would also.
As excited as I am this just makes my hatred for Playmates stranglehold on the property grow stronger and stronger.

As much as I'd prefer to get the official release, the lack of availability and the after market costs being drastically increased I'll have to wait on the eventual bootlegs provided they're up to snuff.

I doubt there will be any sellers doing them under the $100 tho like last time.
This was the set I couldn't mention. Sellers were told to put prices back up to sdcc price, or they wouldn't be allowed to sell this set in September.

Paraphrasing, but Randy mentioned having to sign some sort of exclusivity agreement with SDCC for that item, so I guess NYCC's terms are different.

Okay here's my big dilemma/question. I literally get paid on Friday (midnight I believe). Looking at their pre-order faq it says that you pay immediately when you place the order. If I place the order Thursday and use my card that gets automatically loaded the next day will it still go through? I know alot of orders take several days to actually take your money and I really don't want lose out on this . Otherwise I'm going to have to try and sell $100 worth of crap on ebay in two days.

Greetings and salmutations!
I am a Mirage fan-atic, and would LOVE to add the NECA NYCC Exclusive Eastman & Laird Villains 4-Pack to my NECA Turtles, April & MOUSERS.
I just posted my ‘want to buy’ thread; although this is more of a ‘need to buy’.
Saki may have killed Yoshi fifteen years ago, but after Playmates killed our NECA hopes eight years ago, it’s surreal that these superb sculpts and prototypes have finally become a tangible reality.
It would be with permanent gratitude (as permanent as Sharpie maker ink) that I ask for the assistance of an American ‘dromer. (Unfortunately, NECA will not accept my Australian purchase from here in the Land Down Under).
I invite you to please check out my WTB thread, and PM if you can lend a hand :D

Do you know that they WON'T accept an international billing address if you HAVE and American shipping address you can send it to?

I sent an enquiry along these lines but haven't had a reply (yet). Like you, I have to have these.

Good luck.

playmate
09-07-2016, 04:32 AM
Hi Otter
Ultimately, I don’t know...though I would be extremely curious what their reply would be to your enquiry. Extra pizza points if you can let me know!
And thanks for the kind words; here’s hoping we can both collect these!
I figure with approximately 48 hours from initial announcement to live transactions for pre-order, there is not a whole lot of time to communicate before these sell out.
I acknowledge NECA specified there will be 3000 sets total; does anyone here know what the allocation will be for pre-order vs NYCC booth?
Still shell-shocked that these have finally been produced; now that’s TURTLE Power!

Looks like they won't :(

I just set up an account on their website and in the addresses section it would only let me add a US address. So I could add my US shipping address but not my UK billing address.

If they come back on your enquiry please let me know as I'd really like to know what they say!

Most of your questions will be answered after visiting these 2 links.


I DO think they'll release a black and white villains set next year for NYCC. They'll want to get as much mileage out of these sculpts as possible. Help contribute $ towards the huge cost of tooling for these sculpts.

Right, cause it's their CHOICE.

Tell Playmates to go F themselves instead dude. You know damned well it's not by choice. Nobody wants to limit their production run.
it's way more expensive for everyone.

These figures were announced back in 2008, 8 years ago. I waited 8 years of my life for this and gave up all hope years ago.

I was only 22 years old when these figures were announced, and as a young bright-eyed 22 year old I was ecstatic. Now I'm a bitter disgruntled 30 year old too old to play with toys. They toyed with my emotions and I'm not paying $100 for this.

I want them sold separately at the same price the TMNT figures were.

Even if they were released individually you know dang well that they wouldn't be the same price. Also if your mind is that fragile you may need help the internet doesn't provide. Also, I'm 33 and still "play" with toys.

At 100 for 4, technically 5 figures if you count the Utrom, you're not paying much more than retail if these had been released mass market. Unfortunately I won't be able to get these, but at least NECA is trying to get stuff out in the manner they are allowed to, as opposed to never releasing these.

Also, 15 dollars? What 6 inch scale Collectors Figures sell at 15 dollars anywhere?

To be fair, it was a very different time with NECA 8 years ago.
Up until the sucess for thr Aliens & Predators libe, NECA is famous for only releasing 1 or 2 figurea and call it a day. Never conpleted a toy line.

That being said. I would never expect to pay for a toy with the same quality forbthe same price 8 years apart.

Long shot and late notice...I'm from the UK so have no chance of getting a set. If anyone can help out I can pay up once the order is confirmed, plus extra for whatever postage and packaging is to UK, plus say $20 in your pocket for your troubles.

I know you US guys and gals are relying on my "word" that I'll pay up after you've spent your hard earned cash, but I will deliver if anyone here can deliver for me...

Otter

I don't get the NECA hatred at all.

2016 has really been "year of the toy" for me (I've been collecting for 20-something years and I've spent more this year on "must have items" than any other... and I had planned on cutting back), and NECA has been at forefront for product.

Product that I honestly never thought would ever see the light of day. Newt and Vasquez from Aliens, and now these. Mirage figures we were told we couldn't have. I don't care how much I have to pay on ebay to get these.

I can't get over people whinging about them, when they are perfectly able to secure them. The arcade series I almost understand... but even then, they can be obtained. If you want them bad enough.

And that's what being an adult collector is all about. We're not taking Saturday morning trips down to the local mall anymore. You want collectibles inteded for adults, be prepared to pay a little more.

It's just the forum troll, don't mind him. This is joyous news, & you can bet we're all excited! The only frustration comes with the reminder of how difficult Playmates has made it for these sorts of things to happen, it's not vitriol direct at NECA themselves.

oh my bad, I'm a day ahead of myself. too much time traveling lately... :kgrin: still curious if there will be a shipping charge though.

I think it is safe to assume that yes you will pay shipping.

I wanted to see what shipping was myself so I threw an item
In my basket and went through checkout. It was $9.99 so we
Can expect at least that. Reasonable if you ask me and love that these are being made available online despite being Con exclusives

Wow, never thought we'd get these. So glad this is finally happening. i really hope I can get a set, the con exclusive thing sucks but it was probably the only way they could avoid Playmates throwing another fit (then teasing and canceling yet another collector's version of the Shredder, just for kicks.)

WHOA! I didn't see the announcement until super late last night. VERY COOL! Absolutely gorgeous. I never wound up buying the older NECA figs, but I'll for sure be picking up some boots.

The Playmates situation is unfortunate, but NECA is being as cool as possible here by offering them to non-con fans.

09-08-2016, 09:54 AM
Is $100 the actual price, or is it $100 + tax like it was in SDCC ($100+$22)

Wow tax was really that brutal at SDCC? I was thinking of holding off and buying them at NYCC to avoid shipping but not if that's the case...

I'm going to go for this item but unfortunately I don't have the turtles. I wasn't big into collecting TMNT and didn't have connections to SDCC when these went up for sale. I'm almost tempted to go for two of these sets and hope they spike and I can trade them for at least half of the turtles.

Oof... You should have bit the bullet, the second hand prices are probably going to be insane.

And yeah... These ain't going to get wide release, any figure under the 1/4th scale have to be Con exclusives. That's the license rule.

Interesting, I'd likely just sit on it and not sell it if I got a second set. I thought I'd be happy just to get one then it leaves more to go around anyway. The thought did cross my mind when ordering tho. Would be over $300 CAD plus any import fees/tax. Getting these and the NECA 1990 movie figures will be very nice :)

Ha, I'm actually in the same boat! Only 45 minutes to the border. It was definitely worth semi-regular trips when the dollar was on par and US prices were still hugely cheaper. Still felt it was worth it this time -- no guarantees these will be released otherwise, and having that shipping option is very lucky. The exchange rate did make me wince, though...

I actually got April a couple of years ago for $20, so I'll almost have a complete set here. Missing the extra Mousers three-pack, but I'm happy with the ones that came with April. I'd kill for a Mirage Casey some day, but maybe I'll just enjoy this miracle in the moment. :twink:

For those of you that don't have the NECA turtles, many folks on this board have bootlegs of these and have commented in various threads over the years about their quality. In my experience, the bootlegs I Bought were about $40 for the set I think and they are decent figures! Very detailed. Certainly far better than a Playmates figure.

Unfulfilled means you paid but they didn't ship yet every pre-order I have even on other sites say that. Nothing to worry about

Long shot and late notice...I'm from the UK so have no chance of getting a set. If anyone can help out I can pay up once the order is confirmed, plus extra for whatever postage and packaging is to UK, plus say $20 in your pocket for your troubles.

I know you US guys and gals are relying on my "word" that I'll pay up after you've spent your hard earned cash, but I will deliver if anyone here can deliver for me...

Gentle reminder, if anyone has a spare set they are willing to sell and also ship to UK, please...plllease let me know.

I will pay all shipping costs etc

PM me if anyone wants to work something out.

Thanks

Very excited this infamous NECA Mirage Shredder is finally coming out! I too just bought a NECA April, never got it before but now that this set is being released, I wanted to add to the collection. Hopefully we get a NECA Splinter and Casey Jones soon! Please Playmates, pretty please?!

In a way NECA kinda pulled a Playmates on us (re-release the same sculpts in different paint colors) but I know it wasn't their fault and had more to do with the licensing issue. NECA could make truly amazing sculpts for the Mirage line and the OT line if Playmates would allow it.

Repaints and parts re-use are a staple in the toy industry and have been for a long time. GI Joe, transformers, Star Wars, etc.

Plus companies like NECA, Four Horsemen and many others do this as well. The cost to produce the steel molds used to produce figures (Tooling) is very very very expensive, and repaints and parts reuse help cover those initial costs.

Plus since NECA's TMNT license only limits sales to cons, they are further wing clipped and repaints is a way to try and make money on the sculpts.

Did anyone who ordered an April recently just get their order canceled? I just got a message saying they realized mine was broken in the package and had to cancel the order, but seems a little suspect when they had multiple in stock when I ordered... I wonder if they just want to mark up prices?


Who did you order from ? I got the exact same message

radar_toys_and_collectibles. I followed up with some questions about the damage and turns out a whole box of them were destroyed by Fed-Ex during shipping to their warehouse. Fortunately they said there is a replacement shipment on the way and will notify me when they arrive, and cut a small discount for the trouble too, so I think it was a legit issue with shipping and not a cash-in.

I bought a April yesterday, the order wasn't canceled, but after I paid for the figure, I got a msg in eBay from the buyer that they wanted more money to ship it in a secure box instead of an envelope, and sent a money request through PayPal.

Kinda sketchy... I've said no thank you about paying extra, so we'll see how it'll work out.

I ordered April from Radar Toys on both EBay and Amazon and received them quickly with no issues. So this might be a legit issue they had.

Yeah, I believe the Yellow and Green Aprils were solicited by NECA shortly after the Comic-Con one was released. I want to say places like BBTS even had pre-orders up for them along with the rest of Series 2 (Shredder and the Foot) but they were all cancelled once the problems with Playmates reared their ugly head. I am so glad a workaround was found.

I never saw the appeal of the NECA April green and yellow variants, so it's not a disappointment they didn't make it to retail. It was a comic book design, so only the Mirage Blue jumpsuit made sense to me.

I'll admit that I'm not the most knowledgable on the early Mirage books. Didn't the blue jumpsuit first hit in the First graphic novels that were colored and released way after the fact? The original black and white books leave it a bit open to interpretation.

Honestly, I wish they had gone for the crazy curly-haired Mirage April. :lol:

Now that fro would have been novel!

The first colorization of April's Mirage jumpsuit was done for the 3rd printing of TMNT #2 in 1985. The First Graphics TPB came out in late 1986, so it wasn't too long after the original release either.

It's a weird choice on NECA's part making the blue April the SDCC exclusive and the yellow and green the retail version.

Of course it's preferred in hindsight with what happened with wave 2, the pictures of both yellow and green April looked really off by the color choice. Wonder what would have happened of NECA used the basic Foot Ninja to test the waters for wave 2 rather then April.

I think the Toon Turtles will be the 2017 SDCC exclusive. Based on the custom paint jobs on this site, the video game Turtles in Toon colors is just meant to be.

I'm really hoping for a Casey. I figure the body from a foot could be easily reused with some minor retooling. I'd love a Splinter and a Leatherhead. A Triceraton box set would be amazing as well. Casey would be the most likely, but with these recent box sets selling so well, maybe they'll reconsider and continue the line. A collectors club like Matty Collector would be amazing.

And yes, I am cheap. Getting the chucks isn't important or at the top of the list of things I need to so.
