And the circle is now complete. My custom Shreds just became worthless but I couldn't care less.

To be fair, it was a very different time with NECA 8 years ago.
Up until the sucess for thr Aliens & Predators libe, NECA is famous for only releasing 1 or 2 figurea and call it a day. Never conpleted a toy line.

That being said. I would never expect to pay for a toy with the same quality forbthe same price 8 years apart.

seems like the link to pre-order is broken, I'm guessing that means they're sold out? just curious to those who got a pre-order, was there a charge for shipping or was it $100 flat?

just be happy we are getting these. the Arcade sets cost the same and people got them

your gripe is with Playmates not NECA

Long shot and late notice...I'm from the UK so have no chance of getting a set. If anyone can help out I can pay up once the order is confirmed, plus extra for whatever postage and packaging is to UK, plus say $20 in your pocket for your troubles.

I know you US guys and gals are relying on my "word" that I'll pay up after you've spent your hard earned cash, but I will deliver if anyone here can deliver for me...

Is $100 the actual price, or is it $100 + tax like it was in SDCC ($100+$22)

I don't get the NECA hatred at all.

2016 has really been "year of the toy" for me (I've been collecting for 20-something years and I've spent more this year on "must have items" than any other... and I had planned on cutting back), and NECA has been at forefront for product.

Product that I honestly never thought would ever see the light of day. Newt and Vasquez from Aliens, and now these. Mirage figures we were told we couldn't have. I don't care how much I have to pay on ebay to get these.

I can't get over people whinging about them, when they are perfectly able to secure them. The arcade series I almost understand... but even then, they can be obtained. If you want them bad enough.

And that's what being an adult collector is all about. We're not taking Saturday morning trips down to the local mall anymore. You want collectibles inteded for adults, be prepared to pay a little more.

It's just the forum troll, don't mind him. This is joyous news, & you can bet we're all excited! The only frustration comes with the reminder of how difficult Playmates has made it for these sorts of things to happen, it's not vitriol direct at NECA themselves.

Thumbs up 5 hours until pre-order begins!

If my math is right, there is now only 5 short hours until the NECA online store invite pre-orders...to US fans. I figure I would take this opportunity to bump my original WTB post. I would be impossibly grateful for the kind assist.
COWABUNGA!

I believe Q and A section said New Jersey gets taxed. That should be the only state.

I think it is safe to assume that yes you will pay shipping.

I wanted to see what shipping was myself so I threw an item
In my basket and went through checkout. It was $9.99 so we
Can expect at least that. Reasonable if you ask me and love that these are being made available online despite being Con exclusives

I think I'm most excited about these releasing so people will stop talking about it. This was always the one that got away for a lot of people here and it has finally arrived. Glad for everyone.

Wow, never thought we'd get these. So glad this is finally happening. i really hope I can get a set, the con exclusive thing sucks but it was probably the only way they could avoid Playmates throwing another fit (then teasing and canceling yet another collector's version of the Shredder, just for kicks.)

I'm going to try to snag a set as well, I can't believe these finally have been made.

I am hoping they will offer the Arcade turtles with a repaint as the FW style and offer them next.

WHOA! I didn't see the announcement until super late last night. VERY COOL! Absolutely gorgeous. I never wound up buying the older NECA figs, but I'll for sure be picking up some boots.

The Playmates situation is unfortunate, but NECA is being as cool as possible here by offering them to non-con fans.

Wow tax was really that brutal at SDCC? I was thinking of holding off and buying them at NYCC to avoid shipping but not if that's the case...
