NECA Arcade TMNT November 2019

Since these figures sort of fall outside of the other NECA lines: the movie turtles being at GameStop & cartoon turtles at Target, I thought maybe there should be a thread about the arcade line that is planned to roll out sometime in November.

The first wave I suppose is Arcade style Leonardo, Donatello, Purple Foot Solider & Slash. With the exception of Slash these seem to be the same figures that appeared as SDCC bundled exclusives but now they will come with the hoverboards from the video game as well as be more widely available to Speciality and Mom & Pop stores to sell.

I have a pre-order in from Big Bad Toy Store for a set of them which are expected to ship in ďNovemberĒ and knowing NECA I donít think we will get an update on that until maybe the week of?

Are you looking forward to this line of figures? I had sort of overlooked them for the movie and toon lines but now that the Arcade1Up cabinet is out The game versions are more fresh in my mind. I am sure there are more waves coming as we will need individual releases of Raph and Mikey, plus itís been shown that a lot of the Toon figures are getting paint swaps / details changed to fit the video game style. I think the first to be announced for both lines was Leatherhead.

Sorry if this topic is repetitive or not specific enough I couldnít see a thread that was currently focused on this exact wave and not NECAís other lines.

Leatherhead, Traag, and Granitor were all originally showcased in the video game style, plus they showed off Super Shredder recently.

I love this line, necaís video game appearance line is what started me collecting toys in general. I have both of the SDCC 2017 video game sets so I wonít be double dipping on the turtles and foot just for the hover boards, but I have Slash on order (love that it has a different sculpt than the cartoon version). I keep my video game figures in package because Neca absolutely kills their video game packaging, itís like a diorama itself.

I have the Shredder and Foot pack, I figure if they are going to re-release the turtles and everything separately then it's possible that the weapons or colors of the Foot won't be the same as the SDCC pack. Plus I had to have the giant hammer, how could you pass that up?

I don't have a set of Arcade Turtles yet so the hoverboard ones are perfect for me. I am really happy that at least one of the NECA TMNT lines are more available than the Target/Gamestop ones.

Got Slash on order from BBTS. He's going to be a Christmas present alongside some PR Lightning figures. Super excited, as the TiT version is my favorite classic version of the character, at least as far as design goes.

I never read the comics, but I think I get it. TiT was my cousinís favorite SNES game.

November could unfortunately mean December, or even January.

Yeah we are already in November and they are not even on the shipping calendar. I'm betting December at best. I love being wrong about these things though.

Asked them myself on Twitter and confirmed: they've been pushed back. Might hit December or possibly later, so my Slash might have to be a late Christmas present. XD

Thanks for sharing the update! I was wondering what was going on but at least we have some information from NECA about it.
