Not a fan of the pixelation, but we already know these molds will be used at least twice so it doesn't really matter.

I'm curious to see if these will see a retail release, thus necessitating the VG paintjob. If they are announcing it now for 2018, I would think this would not be a 'con only set as they usually keep the con announcements secret until just before the 'con. HMMMMMM we'll find out soon enough.

Thats wath i am thinking.its weird that they have announcing it AS a 2018 relase unless they have got deal to relase them retail.perhaps they have got a deal so they can sell them with Arcade paint as retail??so perhaps we Get this at nycc with toon paint and as Arcade as retail in 2018?

Man... I want that Slash. Here's hoping for a 'toon repaint and a possible Archie colors variant!

Those Rock Soldiers warrant a lot of plastic! While playing the arcade game recently on an HD monitor, I noticed that Traag has a huge crotch rock that is impossible to miss. I wonder if NECA will preserve that detail?

I'm a bit disappointed, if I'm honest- Both that at it's another arcade set, and also that I would have preferred to see Bebop and Rocksteady.

Though it is cool to finally see a Granitor figure. And it's hard to complain after all the goodies NECA has given us lately.

I'm surprised with the bold move NECA made here. Those characters will appeal to a pretty small niche compared to better known villains such as Bebop and Rocksteady, and I assume the videogame paint deco won't boost sales. I really appreciate NECA taking the risk and going for the unexpected.

My bet is that we will see these again in the future with toon accurate paint in a boxed set with some extra characters, maybe Krang's android body or some Neutrinos.

One thing is certain: every time NECA shows anything new, I despise Playmates a little bit more.

Also, between Slash and Traag, is that a Triceraton skull on the ground in the back?

Pixel Dan says Neca wants to do Direct to Consumer Sales for the Dimension X Set if they can work it out.

Id love for that to happen just to stick it to playmates

Hopefully though its not like the exclusive set with limited sale time frame. That way it would also stick it to the scalpers.

Someone mentioned the rat and shark in the diorama. If you look at the video above, you'll see it's an armadillo and a shark. Armaggon! To me that's further confirmation of what the 4th character will be!

They were more oversaturated last year with the movie. That may be when they were making decisions on these. These give them some reuse on Slash and prob between the soldiers. Stretch the dollar. Maybe if they are a hit there will be enough funds to do the chars everyone wants most at long last.

Ah lots of posts and reveals happening quickly so I missed it- thanks dude.

Going back to B&R I do feel they are over saturated. Almost every collectible line features them. Pops, blind boxes of vinyl figures from several companies, statues, 1/6 scale figures etc.

Nice to get something fresh.
