Okay, y'all. First, I know there is a dedicated thread, but I started this thread to make sure that people who can make use of it will see it.

If you're going for the TMNT drop tomorrow, take heed of this and follow it carefully.

Now, in your web browser, set up auto-fill for your name, address, and credit card number. You'll need it to complete checkout. Do not use PayPal. Repeat: DO NOT use PayPal. The reason for this is that when you're using Shopify during checkout, it has to forward you to PayPal so you can log in and then redirect you back to Shopify to complete payment. This is where several people have lost out. The bottom line is that using PayPal costs you precious seconds, and given the amount of people going for these, you need every spare second you can get.

Second, here's a helpful link:

https://thenecastore.com/cart/42870447626:1

This link will add the TMNT set to your cart and send you directly to checkout. Since there's currently "zero" inventory, you'll see an "inventory issues/sold out" screen.

When it comes time for the drop tomorrow (or later today depending on when you see this), just refresh the "inventory issues" screen. Keep refreshing. As soon as NECA updates the inventory on their end, that screen will disappear and you'll be able to finish checkout. With this method, you should be able to checkout (minus the refreshing) in less than 10 seconds.

If you think this doesn't work, it's exactly how I got my set on Tuesday, NECA's previous Comic-Con exclusives, my Mondo TMNT subscription last year, and exactly how I've grabbed 100-some Mondo posters.

Happy hunting! :tgrin:
