If these aren't sold separately in stores than NECA can go F themselves.

Right, cause it's their CHOICE.

Tell Playmates to go F themselves instead dude. You know damned well it's not by choice. Nobody wants to limit their production run.
it's way more expensive for everyone.

Stop being an idiot. it's gross man. I know you're smarter than this.

These figures were announced back in 2008, 8 years ago. I waited 8 years of my life for this and gave up all hope years ago.

I was only 22 years old when these figures were announced, and as a young bright-eyed 22 year old I was ecstatic. Now I'm a bitter disgruntled 30 year old too old to play with toys. They toyed with my emotions and I'm not paying $100 for this.

I want them sold separately at the same price the TMNT figures were.

Even if they were released individually you know dang well that they wouldn't be the same price. Also if your mind is that fragile you may need help the internet doesn't provide. Also, I'm 33 and still "play" with toys.

I honestly hope you're just trolling, drunk, and/or being facetious...

Too bad?

How the hell can you be such an idiot? DUDE!!!! 'cause every company WANTS to make their customers wait 8 years...they must enjoy it, right?

This trolling is a whole new low, even for you dawg.

Don't even think about screwing this up for the other fans. Seriously.
If you think 2da9's is rough, don't tempt me.

You shall not. Savvy?

I'm not saying you have to buy them, obvs - I am saying, this best not be your next nostrils.

What's so hard about selling each figure seperately for $15? I think its a lot more sense than a $100 exclusive.

At 100 for 4, technically 5 figures if you count the Utrom, you're not paying much more than retail if these had been released mass market. Unfortunately I won't be able to get these, but at least NECA is trying to get stuff out in the manner they are allowed to, as opposed to never releasing these.

Also, 15 dollars? What 6 inch scale Collectors Figures sell at 15 dollars anywhere?

You know if they could, they would. Licensing deals, you know all about them, how they work. This is the loophole, take it or leave it.

These guys are doing their best to give the best, for all the fans.

You wanna be salty, keep it to yourself.
Like you said it's been 8 years - we've all been waiting, not just you.

My memory might be fuzzy, but I remember buying all the NECA TMNT for $15 each.

8 years ago that was the case. 20 dollars has pretty much been the going rate for 6 inch collectors line for at least the last 5 years.

This kinda made me laugh; I saw a little bit of myself in there. NECA really grinds my gears on many fronts as well. I wish I could play with toys and get the same amount of satisfaction I used to. Life seems to get more difficult as you go, however...

No one should be complaining about these at all. The $100 price tag is a little steep but you're getting figures that WOULD NOT HAVE COME OUT if it weren't for these con exclusives
