As excited as I am this just makes my hatred for Playmates stranglehold on the property grow stronger and stronger.
I agree just imagine if NECA made Casey Jones ugh that is something I would die for. Man Playmates are assholes.

I really wish there was some way they could start a collectors club on NECA's website.

Is there any word on price? And future availability? These should be, like, available to fans everywhere, dammit.

these will never be retail released as long as Playmates holds the license . They will only be con exclusives.

$100 & if the video game editions give any indication there should be some of these on Chinese websites in a month or two.

I mean, like, available online. Big Bad Toy Store and such. Not at Walmart, well, that's not surprising.

these won't be on Big Bad Toy Store. No retail means no online stores besides actual stores only Neca's online store. Like Powder said just wait they will be bootleged

As much as I'd prefer to get the official release, the lack of availability and the after market costs being drastically increased I'll have to wait on the eventual bootlegs provided they're up to snuff.

Anyways, I'm very excited about these. I'll try for 2 sets.

Blast from the past! I thought I was stoked about Ecto Cooler coming back! This is awesome. Very unexpected. This will be the first thing I go for on Thursday at the Con!

They will be available to ship on day 1 of the con....
I doubt there will be any sellers doing them under the $100 tho like last time.
This was the set I couldn't mention. Sellers were told to put prices back up to sdcc price, or they wouldn't be allowed to sell this set in September.

It's interesting that non-attendees can buy the sets as well, maybe the license agreement have loosen up a bit after the SDCC set, or there's different rules compared to SDCC and NYCC.

Paraphrasing, but Randy mentioned having to sign some sort of exclusivity agreement with SDCC for that item, so I guess NYCC's terms are different.

So it was the con that prevented some from getting these and not Playmates.

Interesting.

So insanely happy for these!!
Never have I been a bootleg fan, if I'm to support this license I want the brands putting effort on it making profit.
What are the options to get them for a lonely european?
