NECA has a game changing jaw dropper SDCC exclusive for 2018

Their words, not mine!

No hints given - what do people think it'll be?

I feel like it has to be either the henson turtles in 5-6 inch scale, or another wave of fred wolf (splinter, casey, april, rocksteady, bebop, etc). what else could there possibly be that's as good?

I really hope that whatever it is, it's not yet another set of the turtles in another style.

Flesh out one of the existing lines - Mirage or Cartoon preferred.

The way he was hyping it though - just more characters doesn't make sense to me. But you know what WOULD be jaw dropping and game changing?

THE TECHNODROME. It'd also go with the Dimension X set. Built in repaint for cartoon and video game styled.

So yeah, that's my guess. Technodrome.

I saw the city sidewalk diorama. Looks pretty cool, if a little generic. Looking forward to seeing the official unveiling.

Iím predicting a double exclusive tmnt realrase. The dimension x figure we saw last year and the 4th they acknowledged last year. Also an expansion on the Fred Wolf series. Iíd like to see splinter, April, bebop, and rocksteady. In a perfect world tho for me at least we will get a reveal of 1/4 scale Casey Jones and, Tasu.

Casey Jones is a no brainer. The bat has already been sculpted for Raphael, and the mask could be scaled down to fit over Elias's face. I am guessing Shredder's face mask will be removable as well.

Whatever it is, I hope it will be less expensive than last year's set.
I doubt it though.

While I don't care how they are released, if we DON'T get Original Toon style Splinter, April, Bebop, Rocksteady and Krang in Android body, NECA will have pissed me off just as much as Playmates and Tamashii Nations.

We need ALL the core characters from the cartoon AT LEAST and it's so frustrating no company can seemingly commit to doing this. And ideally it would be nice to see more than just the core characters.

I'm sure it will be cool, but to call a toy a "game-changer" seems silly. Whatever it is, I'm looking forward to it.

I have a feeling itís going to be a continuation of the 1987 SDCC set from last year with Splinter, Rocksteady, Bebop and maybe additional characters. That doesnít feel very game changer when I think about it, so I wonder what else it could possibly be.

“Game changer” makes me imagine it’s something large. I’d love something like a “City at War” box set or Return to New York with a Zog figure or whatever else, but not holding my breath, whatsoever, for that.

My guess is a turtle blimp, van, or technodrome.

Or a sewer playset.

I'm still gonna stick with Technodrome for now, but yeah, I really feel it has to be a vehicle or playset. Can't just be more characters.

My guess is also the Technodrome although they’d have to make it in the pixelated style (based on the dimension X villain set release) and that seems risky.
My only other guess would be a full scale wearable turtle mask or Shredder helmet. Or maybe a Shredder helmet was already in the works, I can’t remember.

Have they already said who the fourth character is in the Dimension X Villains pack? Iím assuming Krang in android body?

Keep in mind he says ďanotherĒ jaw dropper/game changer so Iíd just expect either more characters we havenít had before or characters represented like we havenít had before.

I agree with some of the posters above that calling this wave a "game changer" indicates that it is huge news that they are about to deliver. (E.g. something we haven't seen before in the 7" scale.) So to release more Arcade, Mirage or OT turtles wouldn't qualify because that ground has been broken by Neca already. My guess is that we will see the Archie Comics turtles, the 1990 movie turtles or the turtles from the 2k3 series. And if they are not going with a particular iteration of the turtles, its something in the same vain as this diorama they showed off. Perhaps a vehicle or a specific landmark from one of the shows?

I don't think they've said, but that was always my guess.

I am expecting it to be a super shredder in 1/4 scale and it will be a convention exclusive.

I also like the idea I heard about there being a 1:1 prop replica of the Shredder mask from 1990 movie-that would be cool
