They teased the Turtle portion and Shredder's arm with dimly lit quick photos. Full reveal of set(s) with fully lit photos tomorrow.

Tidbit tease if the day #1. Full reveal still coming today. I'm guessing noon ET since that's when they usually do full reveals

I was so excited awaiting the reveal, but I'm underwhelmed by the turtles. Not only they look like they're wearing eyeliner, but NECA actually tried to add shading all around and it does not look good at all. Easy pass. I blame the sucess of their videogame line, were all characters after Freddy and Jason look like they're wearing body paint.

Shredder from the back looks good and I like that his cape is soft goods. I may get him if he looks good from the front and if he looks easy to repaing.

So close.

I'm looking forward to these will definitely be getting them. I painted my arcade TMNT set but the custom paint interfered with the articulation and caused paint rub, so it will be great to have these factory painted in the correct colors. I believe these are the first ever 100% toon accurate TMNT figures made by any toy company, been waiting years for these.

I think the reason they added all those outlines is an attempt at making the figures looks truly animated and screen accurate, the black lines are supposed to represent ink marks? Wasn't really necessary but not a deal breaker for me. Can't wait to see how Shredder looks, in that preview it looks like maybe the same sculpt but I could be mistaken.

Not too keen on the ink lines, but it is nice seeing the sculpts without the pixel paint on official figures.

Shredder having a cloth cape is pretty nifty, but what we see of him looks too close to the reused model to be sure it's new sculpting, the helmet looks kinda new without the scrapes and a more open face plate shoeing more of his eyes, but it could just be the angle and paint doing it.

Those foot soldiers look great! Unfortunately, that Shredder may not be 100% toon accurate, if that preview pic is any indication. You can see behind his legs, he is supposed to have 4 metal straps on each leg armor that goes around the legs, but they are not there.

It also seems the arm guards are the same mold from the previous NECA Shredder.

Maybe it will be an 8-pack this time?
The four Turtles, Shredder and three Foot Soldiers?

I really doubt we will get Krang, April, Splinter, Bebop, Rocksteady or any other characters, but I hope I'm wrong. :lol:

Candy Kappa
05-30-2017, 12:20 PM
With the minimal new parts for the Foot and Shredder, maybe there's a Bubble Walker Krang as the final reveal.

That Shredder head sculpt looks great, if only they went the extra mile and sculpted new arms/legs/armor to be toon accurate, instead of re-using parts from comic Shredder. OT Shredder not supposed to have cloths wrapped around wrists, and supposed to have metal straps attached to arm and leg armor. I'm surprised NECA didn't go all out on that one, cause I know they're all about accuracy. I will still be getting it and possibly modifying the minor inaccuracies.

It works out to be $25 per figure. Standard NECA figs are $20-25. But yeah, there's the shipping cost on that too. Looks like the case size will be more shipping friendly than last year's releases though.

WALKER BODY KRANG!!! Woohoo!!!

$200 plus shipping really is a great price for 8 figures, loads of accessories and that case. I like the case but it's a shame they had to used Archie artwork. I'm sure it's due to licensing from FW

I am confused about how to order if I decide to get it. So it will be on NECAs website to order not a scalper thing bc con exclusive? If only available at con won't folks try and mark up to $350.00. :o

Edit: can order in June at NECA online store

It's not going to be $200 + shipping for people outside of the US. The license NECA have is US only (unless they reveal something new later) and this set is probably going to go for insane scalper prices.

Last time the sets was available through NECA's store before the Con, and had shipping (inside US) so you didn't have to pick it up at the Con.

So going by the pics and what was said on the fwoosh, this year you don't have a choice between villans or turtles. You have to get them as a full set at $200 even if you don't want one or the other.

Candy Kappa
05-30-2017, 02:14 PM
Is it just me or are Leo's katana way to fat? Raph's sais look too big to me too. Not deal breakers. Just curious if I was alone in that.

Looks like it's the same swords form the Arcade set, which are pretty fitting with the toon aesthetics. Leo's swords was really inconsistent in the show, but they look a bit like how the sword Leo was polishing in Turtle Tracks looked like.

The sai are chunky, but definitively a up step from the Arcade set sai. While the sai in-show where tiny, NECA seems to go for more real-life proportions as the middle prong should be slightly longer then your forearm.

This is a pretty damn cool set.

That said, it's hard not to compare them to the Arcade sets, which are a little more novel to me. Seeing that classic arcade cabinet image on the packing for the Arcade set is a thrill.

Which set do you all prefer?

Lil Karai
05-30-2017, 03:24 PM
Some people are already complaining that it's expensive and so many characters at once. If they were to release more characters all at once, the complaining would increase.

There's still NYCC and subsequent years if they want to release more supporting characters.

As far as the arcade set vs this one, I really like both. The arcade set is VERY unique and I don't think we will ever see anything again like it.

I decided I'm going to keep my SHF turtles and have them having fun in the sewer lair as their expressions are more well, expressive. Even though they aren't as cartoon accurate as NECA's, I really like them. I will not be buying the SHF Shredder, however.

NECA cartoon set will be on another shelf battling the villains of this set.

Arcade sets on a third shelf.

This set is pretty much all I ever dreamed of when I was a kid. It's amazing & I know lots will disagree but this is always how I saw the design / look of the FW turtles NOT the SHfiguarts ones.

But like Candy Kappa and SSKakarot said, us Europeans are going to be royally fleeced. $200 plus sellers 'bit on the side' (probably another $50~$100) plus import charges ($60 for my E&Lvillains set). We're taking of way over $300 to get these in Europe. As a certain president would say..."Sad!".

It always makes me wonder...a great community here on the techno drome forum but no-one will EVER say "hey I'll get a second set if you want one, I'll only charge you the going rate as I'm doing a fellow fan a favour, then buyer just covers P&P". Seems sad, I would always be willing to help another TMNT fan out, but I've not seen that here...yet.

Anyway...superb set. I'll prob do everything I can do to get my hands on a set. Well done Neca!

One way in which my tastes have changed when buying collectibles, is in regards to space.
Something I really like about this set is how compact it is. Eight figures inside a small rectangular box.
While I'm mostly interested in Shredder and The Foot, the ease and size of the package are enticing me to just go ahead and order one.

So we are still guessing when pre-orders will go up?

Chaotix12345
05-30-2017, 04:33 PM
Eh, they're neat, but I think I prefer the look of the Figuarts Turtles. They strike a better balance of silly-looking yet action-ready to me and their expressions look more "animated." Plus, the weird ink lines and reuse of the exaggerated arcade weapons make them look even more off. The Turtle Comm accessory is really nice, though, and I'm loving the villains. Makes me wish they had made the Arcade set a singular one and made THESE Turtles and Foot separate sets, because I'd be seriously tempted by the Foot one.

Also, LOL at the people just using this thread as an excuse to stroke their Playmates hate-boner. :lol:

I was really pumped with Playmates classic line when it came out, but deep down inside I could see how crappy they were and never got them, even when they were available here in Spain.
I was also really happy to see the Arcade line come to life, but the exclusiveness and the 2 set split made it a forced pass.
Figurarts are a fantastic option and they are also available in Spain, but something on them looks too naive and the retail price here is over 65$ a piece...

This time I feel I have all I was waiting from a TMNT FW line: well executed paintjob, great figures, interesting accesories, new villains and all in one single pack. I can see how other collector who already own some of the lines listed above may not be interested on this version, but for me is going to be a pleasure to display them.

Ready for the online purchase madness!

Btown
05-30-2017, 05:46 PM
idk how i feel about set. I'd really like to get shredder and the foot soldiers as i dont really want the turtles. I just gotta figure out if its worth the money or not. I may just pass over all and buy last years comic villain set as I like that one much more.

Lil Karai
05-30-2017, 05:54 PM
I have to say that this was a pretty smart strategic move on NECA's part. They obviously know that the SHF turtles are already out there. And that a lot of Turtle fans have 'em already.

Honestly, if this was 2 separate sets (turtles and villains), I probably would only have purchased a villains set.

Smart on their part and money- making wise to make them one set this year ;)

IndigoErth
05-30-2017, 06:56 PM
Though I prefer to collect only a specific piece or two I like best from a figure line, so this is outside of my usual budget or interest and will have to pass...still, I otherwise kind of like though that it's a big complete set and put together with a case similar to those many had 'back in the day.' :D

05-30-2017, 08:39 PM
Am I blind or are the FW turtles the same molds as the arcade? Some seem to hint they aren't. I'm kinda not feeling the turtles but I want Shredder, Krang, and the Foot so I'll most likely pull the trigger. Or perhaps I'll wait and get them on AliExpress in a few months for half the price haha I want to support NECA but I'm sure these will sell out either way.

I really love the packaging but I'm not big on the 4 turtles.
It worked for the arcade but I feel like the SH Figuarts TMNT look more like the CBS episodes that I love and remember.
I guess these are a little closer to the first season but slightly off.
The Villains set is where it's at for me even if there are things that I would personally fix or tweak on each of the toys presented.
I'm still more than certain that I will pull the trigger and buy a set.
Here's to hoping for more figures for NYC comicon!

I understand the frustration by how hard it is to get the exclusive if you are outside of US. Heck even if you live in US it won't be easy.
Here's hope that the "small quantities" available online is a legal thing they have to say and not actually meaning it.
I remember last year's NYCC box set wasn't too hard to get and don't recall it being sold out too fast.

I'm just a bit concerned with the shipping cost. I remember it wasn't cheap with the NYCC set.

I also don't understand why people think the Playmates classics line was crappy. I thought they were pretty cool. I end up buying a 2nd Raphael figure.

The classics line was crappy because the figures looked awful, and they didn't release enough villains

I get that the classics line was a bit too big to fit in 6" scale because they were literally 6" tall. But the sculpts were good and I think initially the turtles sold pretty well.
The villains part came after.

Same here, I guess eBay is the only way for people outside the US to try and get this set.

I ended up paying $210 for the Neca Villains set (including shipping and import costs), this new set contains 8 figures and they are packaged in a big box so I can't imagine getting it for less then $400. :tcry:

Awesome set. I really like the way the turtles and Shredder look.

I understand the price but I can't tell you this doesn't suck. Especially since they going to charge once you order. I can't come up with $200 that fast. I guess I'll have to hope to find these for a good price on Ebay in the coming months.

I hope that I can get these eventually.

The problem is indeed the shipping costs, and the price that eBay sellers are going to ask for it. :tsad:

Um 5,000 does not seem like just a few to me. But maybe if someone might have expected 20,000 then I could see that. With so many other options/competition for collectors dollars and the $200 price point. I am no longer concerned about not getting a set. Now if it was like 500 for SDCC attendees and 500 for online only orders, then I might be singing a different tune. Anyone know how many arcade sets and villain sets got produced?

I did respond to Neca by saying that I believe in future they should serialise TMNT stuff, as for collectors the line between the 'original' sets and the 'bootleg' sets is blurred, you can't always be sure what you are buying.

I know some people argue that there is no difference between the 2 types of set, but there are people out there who would like to know if they have an 'offical' set or not.

The Arcade sets 3000 each with total of 6000 and the nycc villan 3000.but i woued not focus so mutch on nummbers because the sets are not so exclusive.its just something neca has to say because of their licens deal.if neca say3000 they are making 12-15000 or more and 3000 are fore the con and the rest is fore ther unoffcial neca store. that how they can make them retail with the licens deal they got.

Seems sad, I would always be willing to help another TMNT fan out, but I've not seen that here.

Quit complaining. I buy lots of postage on eBay at a discount so that I can sell items to people overseas at actual price + actual shipping and still make a profit. The only person here that won't give me a good reference is CanadianDrome :tlol:

Neca have (and still do)workaround before and they love to show people that ass fist them the finger.
If you look close on how the tube turtles and the con sets are sold,quality etc there is a big difference how it's done.
Now I will say it's important that the con sells out to keep the TMNT goddess from neca comming and that Viacom can see its a marked fore good collector figures and perhaps change how the master license works or puts pressure on playmates to loses up and let others make more good toys.
so I rekomend that all that can buy from neca do it and army build from China and let the scalpters on eBay keep their 500+++ sets.good fore collectors bad fore scalpters��

I am curious if boxed sets are a part of their license restriction how did they sell the clam shell turtles? The ones from the first comic release that came individually with their diorama parts. I had stopped collecting back then so am a little out of the know.

Or how about a NECA set of IDW turtles and Old Hob! I guess the market will forever favor the blockbuster cashcow that was Fred Wolf, but when we're talking comic con exclusives we could really get a little more obscure, right NECA? :tangel: I'll keep my fingers crossed for NYCC, though I won't be surprised if we get a followup set of Bebob & Rocksteady. :trazz:

What the hell, “stop complaining”…I’m not complaining. How did you even construe my post as complaining? I’m more than happy, I’m over the moon with this set. It’s what I’ve always dreamed of since I was about 8 years old (aside from no Splinter or April :P). I am just suggesting to NECA that…OK as you put it the “early sets” have serialisation. I’m not a serious toy collector, just a TMNT fan who loves the FW era. BUT there are serious collectors, lots of them. One’s that won’t even open their figures. I’m sure they would like to know, if in 5 years’ time they are buying a set off eBay, they would like to know if they have one of the “early sets” from SDCC, or one of the “retail” sets from China.

By the way, I do still regard the original Mirage set from China as knock offs/bootlegs, as they have no ab-crunch, material/feel is slightly different and also quality is sometimes debatable (parts coming off). So they are not the same build quality as the official sets. Oh sorry I meant the retail sets aren’t as good as the early sets. ;)

Now I wasn't referring directly to you,but there have been a lot off complaints about price,exclusive and why they don't number the sets.now if you are not a serious collector why bother asking them to number the sets??.as off now it doesn't matter if you get the set from sdcc or china because they are off same quality.now I don't say there will be some rejected in between and whene the original batch are sold out we will see lesser quality bootlegs of the popular sets.its doubtful we will see it on the arcade set possibly the nycc set and most likely this year sdcc set but time will tell.
If you did look at my last post I did say its a big difference in quality etc in the old mirage tube sets and last year sdcc set and to date so it's no reason to be rude.i got some sets of both original and bootlegs,so I know the difference and I can tell you that I got some of the first bootlegs and they hold better than my originals.

Was it in NECA's contract to not be allowed to sculpt new arms and legs for Shredder? Because they did an excellent job on the new head and upper body, but re-using the other parts makes it look like a half done job. Or is it really worth re-using old parts from Mirage Comics Shredder and Foot Soldier just to save some money? Because if they were going for toon accuracy, re-using those parts doesn't make sense, Cartoon Shredder doesn't have those black wraps around the wrists, has metal straps attached to armor, etc.

Looking at the gallery I can't help but notice all the parts that were re-used, like Foot Soldier's belt being extra wide, or the bottom of Shredder's shirt got painted black to blend in with the pants, since these parts were really based on Mirage Comics. Would've been awesome if they were all new sculpts to be 100% toon accurate, including the armor.

That throwback case is sweet, I still have my original one. It would be cool if Neca released a 3-pack foot solider set or another type of accessory pack to go with this set.

Yeah good ideas! Or what about the NECA turtle Party Wagon. NYCC maybe? :tgrin: A guy can dream I suppose. :lol:

Not my discovery, but someone on Twitter pointed this out from the Sewer Mutation Warrior Alien's description:
The Weyland-Yutani outpost is DX-5.1.1.8.7, as in Dimension X, November 5th (episode air date), from the 1987 series.

Really cool easter egg on NECA's part. :)

Was it in NECA's contract to not be allowed to sculpt new arms and legs for Shredder? Because they did an excellent job on the new head and upper body, but re-using the other parts makes it look like a half done job. Or is it really worth re-using old parts from Mirage Comics Shredder and Foot Soldier just to save some money? Because if they were going for toon accuracy, re-using those parts doesn't make sense, Cartoon Shredder doesn't have those black wraps around the wrists, has metal straps attached to armor, etc.

Compared to the alternative which is making these all from scratch(customs). I'm willing to take these as is and do the fixes myself. Now I just need someone to pick me up a set.

Contracts don't really work that way. Rarely goes that specific.
That being said. It's most likely a cost thing.
It's funny that something similar happened with my DreamEx Shredder. He came with the the armor pieces separate so I have to dress him into his armor. I got him all suit up and opened the plastic bag that holds the cape and realize there's two arm bands that it came with that you can put on his forearms. Guess you have 2 looks for him for the DreamEx version..

Now I wasn't referring directly to you,but there have been a lot off complaints about price,exclusive and why they don't number the sets.now if you are not a serious collector why bother asking them to number the sets??.as off now it doesn't matter if you get the set from sdcc or china because they are off same quality.now I don't say there will be some rejected in between and whene the original batch are sold out we will see lesser quality bootlegs of the popular sets.its doubtful we will see it on the arcade set possibly the nycc set and most likely this year sdcc set but time will tell.
If you did look at my last post I did say its a big difference in quality etc in the old mirage tube sets and last year sdcc set and to date so it's no reason to be rude.i got some sets of both original and bootlegs,so I know the difference and I can tell you that I got some of the first bootlegs and they hold better than my originals.

I’m surprised anyone is against numbering the sets. Personally, I don’t see a problem with it. Yes I said I’m not a serious collector, but if I ever had the opportunity to buy a set off eBay in a few years’ time it would be nice to know if it was one of the…”early” sets.

I know you are arguing your point that there is no difference between the early con sets and the China sets, but it would just be nice to know. I’m glad you’re passionate about defending the Chinese product. I work for a company that makes plastics products in the UK, Dubai and China. I know for a fact that some high quality grades of plastic cannot be purchased in China, so they use materials that are as close as possible. Also when moulding in Dubai the conditions such as temperature and humidity can affect the quality of the mouldings. So I do believe from my own experiences that although small, there may be some differences between the first sets and the follow up sets from China.

They’re not numbering anyway, so the anti-serialisation brigade can remain happy.

Price – this seems OK to me, not a problem for what we are getting.

Exclusivity – it annoys me this is US only, but that’s not a NECA issue, that’s a Playmates one as far as I understand it.

And I’m sorry you found my previous post rude, it wasn’t meant to be and didn’t seem that way to me when I read back over it. But if I unintentionally offended you I apologise.

Parts re-use is what helps to bring these figures in at $25 each, and to make it even financially worth it for NECA to do these 'con exclusive, limited issue sets. New steel mold (tooling) construction for new pieces is extremely expensive.

Doesn't bother me a bit. There is quite a lot of new tooling and sculpting in the enemy figures, especially where it counts, so I'm good with that.

Unless they only make like 500 available on the website I really don't see an issue. The Mirage set was available nearly all day and extras were put up on neca online after SDCC. There's twice as many of these and I really don't think it'll be a challenge to get (for the US residents, I know it sucks for everyone else).

I think the $200 price limit is fair but I think it'll also deter some of the scalpers.

I'm sure the messaging has been careful crafted to ensure maximum sales success. Does NECA have an advertising budget for TMNT. I am curious what those main review websites got. Someone told me in sales you want to create a sense of urgency. Sometimes it's true sometimes only hype.

Scalpers take preorders now for bigger ticket items:trolleye:. Already on eBay, lame. I think selling the figs from the pack individually is how it will have to work out for the scalpers. I can't see someone paying $350 but maybe $40 imho

I'm not a fan of the expressions on any of the turtles for this particular adaption. I can't help but think that was a reason that so many official photos of this set of Turtles show them with their heads looking toward the floor so that you can't really focus on their grimaces.

That's kind of a crappy thing to do if you're just doing it to resell it for a profit... I would assume this is what most scalpers probably do. I'm all for helping my fellow turtle fans out, but if I can manage to get a second set it's already spoken for.

As an artist who wants one & can't afford it... who wants to do this with me? :tlol:

Haha! I was actually told if I had an extra they would do a really cool commission for me in exchange so I'd put up a trade offer if you think its a good idea. I just happen to love the artists work so I jumped on the chance to get a super cool commission from them.

I'm also looking to get a set from a fellow dromer hopefully without a crazy
mark-up.

One thing to keep in mind is in previous NECA website sales they've posted the items a bit early. The comic bad guys set was up 10 minutes early.

Not crappy, I've had several overseas members here request that I obtain this for them.

Because I'm just that much more awesome than the rest of you.
If you would sell at cost 200 that's helping someone out but if your gonna take a profit for yourself I agree that's crappy

I'm not saying you do that but that's how others look at it. However I do recall you selling newly released Megabloks figure packs for 20.00 when they cost 10

I have a local regular that I am going to try and scoop up a second one for cause he cant get to a computer during the day, but I wouldnt gouge him. The way I figure it, if Im already on the page and I buy 2 instead of 1, I am not spending any extra effort. I told him he pays any shipping costs, plus the 200 retail which i figure covers my time mashing F5 at noon....

I bought close to 50 Leonardo and Donatello Battle Packs from Mattelshop.com at Christmas time and sold them for twice what I've paid. I've never been a closet re-seller, I've always been honest about what I do.

Point is, if someone in Europe is willing to pay me a high mark-up on one of these, you can bet your @$$ I'm going to get someone else to use their account to order me another set.

Gonna be at my desk and ready 30 mins early

Well they are all over Ebay right now, I think both sets for around 250$ Add in 50$ for shipping cost to Sweden, and yeah I can't afford it, right now. I hope next week though.

But what I want is the villain set, I need that Krang.

It's a great toy set.

But it's also a great example of how tortuous SDCC and the toy industry as a whole has become. Conventions have become predatory money grabs. Toy companies have become a politicized us-versus-them culture.

Toy sections exist and thrive when numerous companies are successful. So if Playmates is too simultaneously righteous and short-sighted to let figures like this come to retail, and NECA's content to let fans fight among fans for limited quantities, then I'm just going to take my money elsewhere.

Plenty of things to invest in that don't involve dealing with or being a crappy person. Toys should be fun. When toys aren't fun, **** the hobby.

Seems like your are pointing fingers at both companies which is not very fair.
Playmates have the master license for TMNT. It's in their right to not allow another company take the market share.
NECA on the other hand is restricted to limited production run. It's like saying if you can't have it nobody should.

I'm sure there are ways to get a set if you want to. I don't think (fingers crosses) that the numbers are really that limited. And you have 3 days to test your luck

Stupid question, the NECA site says 1PM EST and 10am PST. I live in Oregon which is PST so should I be ready to order by 10? I keep seeing people saying 12 PST. I'm terrible at time differences and am Just curious since last year I misinterpeted it and the Shredder set went up a half hour early. I still managed to snag a set but just barely.

You're in the same timezone as me. Yes, it's 10AM for us. But you should be ready by 9:30AM if not earlier in case it goes up early.

I actually only charged you actual price plus actual shipping with hopes that I will make money on shipping since I buy postage at a discount, and since you bought so much stuff from me already.

Edit: I had someone back out on this, so I can still take two orders on the 23rd for two sets. $300 shipped to anywhere in the civilized world.

I'm a little ambivalent. I have a limited budget and I can either finish off the 1/4 scale movie figures or order these. Not to mention that I already own the bandai figures...but the villains in this set make it seem soooooo worth it.
