Pretty much the moment that that movie went off the tracks. Up until that point, it's actually pretty good.

Just think, that "joke" about Splinter cost the Turtles several minutes. Who knows if they would have arrived in time to stop Tatsu from kidnapping him; Raph wouldn't have been in a coma; April would have still lost her job though. You can't tell Chief Pennington how to do his job.
Who is Chief Pennington?

Sure, I can understand. It may not be the TMNT's shining moment, but as a fan of pop culture and movies in general, I love the idea of the set.

Plus, you could sell a chunk to Vanilla Ice's hardcore fan base, I'm sure. Probably ten sets to the guy himself. C'mon Neca, let's get weird.

I would love to see 1/4 scale figures of Lord Norenaga, Walker and Mitsu. I think the costuming department for TMNT III did a fantastic job creating wardrobes for those characters. Probably some of the best we've seen in the entire film franchise.

NECA made it clear nothing from the 3rd movie will happen

Something about the third TMNT movie makes me...queasy. Maybe it's Walker, maybe it's the confused feeling I've always gotten when April see's a man in a cage and says "Casey??"....uh, what? Or maybe it's the strange looking costumes.

Just a weird part of TMNT history when you think about it. Not that it didn't have it's merits.

Too bad. Well no big loss. Don't have the room anyways.
I was hoping Playmates would step up to the game.

Wow

Okay, I just happened to run accross this while browsing Turtles stuff on eBay . . . How in the hell did this seller acquire so many?! I'm familiar with bots and having others ready online to buy but 14 already sold and more than 10 still available? Something doesn't add up.

my guess is this guy probably had a lot of dummy accounts to counter the two per household limit. Neca should suspend this guy's orders immediately

So some of us that actually wanted one probably would've had a better chance if this shmuck hadn't rigged the system. Makes you wonder how many others did the same thing. Unbelievable.

I totally understand business. And I understand having an extra one to sell. Hell, I'd understand having two or three extra ones to sell but this is just completely out of control. Major side eye to this seller.

We should all report this guy to Neca. It's the only way this guy will end up on their radar.

Lots of probabilities:

1. They're lying. They don't have that stock. Either way, they get the cash now, refunds later if needed.
2. They worked around the system
3. They have employees and got them to buy it up
4. They're planning on securing that many at the show itself

Worst case from their POV is "well, I got a big influx of cash to do some other stuff with before I had to refund what I couldn't fulfill"

Rigged. If I was petty enough (not quite there, but close), I'd buy ten sets and just not pay at the checkout. It'd only cost me a negative rating.

Sellers haven't been able to leave buyers a negative rating in a looooong time.

You could get a strike against your account, though.

It is possible that this person has 12 or more friends that were willing to give up a little of their time to try to order these for them. If just 12 all managed 2 sets over 3 days no rules were broken. Not saying I agree with the practice.

Generally, I'd think that does go against the rules, due to the intention. I'm not sure how explicitly NECA states this and I could be wrong, but I'd think it would be breaking the rules in some sense.
